Third Trimester

I'm officially in the third trimester. Well my OBs would say it isn't til Saturday, but whatever. I know what day he started cooking and he consistently measures a couple of days ahead so I'm calling it today :)

To celebrate I took the day off. Well not really. I had my OB appointment this morning and after eating lunch, I got super nauseous. I think it has to do with the fact that my nose often bleeds during the night and last night I ended up sleeping half on my back (preggo pillow tucked under one side). So it bled, but it all went into my stomach. I know totally disgusting. But I felt sort of gross all morning, but just figured once I ate lunch I would be fine. Food seems to have magical pregnancy healing powers. If I feel crappy, all I need to do to feel better is eat. Most of the times.

But not today. I ate and my stomach cramped up and I quickly lost my lunch. So instead of going to work I spend the afternoon on the couch, snoozing and watching netflix. I haven't had much to eat aside from tortillas (plain) and water, but I'm feeling better now. I'm going to try some pasta and a few veggie for dinner. We shall see how that goes. And I'm adding more pillows so if my nose bleeds tonight it won't mess up my tummy. I would rather mess up my pillow than my tummy.

So yay third trimester! But I hope today wasn't a sign of what is in store.

In other news, my OB appointment went great. I talked to the doc about all of the things that I want to put in a birth plan. Most of the stuff is standard at her practice. There is no nursery so all babies room in. Baring complications babies always go immediately to mom's belly where the nurse does vitals and such. Its fine to have both hubby & my mom there. She explained the reasonings behind pitocin for placenta delivery and I'm okay with that as long as I get to cuddle with Fin. There were several other things that I was glad to learn, but I can't remember them at the moment. Basically, my birth plan won't be needed for much which is nice. I think the only thing that I may have to fight is supplemental feedings. Lots of babies have jaundice here at this elevation (not sure what the connection is) and they tend to push supplemental feedings. I want to try to avoid that as much as possible. Otherwise all is well.

I do a two hour gestational diabetes test next week one day. I'm not worried though. My blood sugars have been rocking.

Thats all for now...


  1. Yay for 3rd trimester! Baby'll be here before we know it! So exciting!
