Coming up on the Third Trimester

So I haven't written here in forever. I give myself 5 minutes on the computer unless I have everything done for the day. This is working great for my schedule but anything computer related normally gets pushed off. So I can't believe that in a couple of days I will be officially entering the last trimester. I'm definitely feeling it these last couple of days. I had my glucose test this week(Jan.21) which came back fine but it did show I was anemic . So now in addition to prenatal vitamins I have to take an extra iron supplement. I'm hoping that by the next week I will have enough iron stored up that my energy will come back some. The baby has been very active the last couple of days. Liah could spend hours feeling the baby kick and watching my stomach jump. Liah is calling the baby "LaLa" so at least one of us has decided on a name.

The Braxton Hicks contractions have started which have me in gear planning for the birth. Because of the c-section with Blake we don't feel safe with a homebirth even though Liah's birth was fast and went well. I keep having dreams and this strong feeling that if labor goes the way it did with Liah the baby might come at home. I'm totally planning for every scenario or as much as you can when it comes to birth. We'll see what happens.:)

  1. It's nice to hear from you again :) I was anemic too with Annabelle, but we didn't discover it until further into the 3rd trimester. But what an amazing thing iron is! I felt so much better in such a little time. Hope you do too.
