29 weeks down, 11 to go. Seriously, this pregnancy is going by way too fast.
This past week, I did the dreaded gestational diabetes test. I passed the test, but found out that once again I have low iron. So I’ve picked up a supplement to get started on, as apparently if my iron is too low, it means I can’t give birth at the birth centre. (Which makes sense, if I lose too much blood that’s a huge complication I don’t want!) I realized that a lot of my shirts are not long enough anymore, and so I’ve started wearing short dresses with leggings instead. I also feel like I’m running out of clothes! I have so many clothes in my closet, but I can’t wear the things I wore in my last pregnancy because most are not breastfeeding friendly. I can’t wear other things because they just don’t fit! I think that this has a lot to do with the different seasons I’m pregnant in. Last time I was mostly pregnant in the summer, this time I’m mostly pregnant in the winter. I can’t really just throw on a maxi dress and go, because it’s been too cold for that. I lived in maxi dresses for my last pregnancy. This time, I’m living in leggings haha
Little boy in there is about the size of a deflated basketball, or an acorn squash. He’s starting to really plump up in there right now. He’s moving around a lot, and probably running out of space. I’ve been feeling lots and lots of kicks and jabs.. and he’s even doing that fun thing Autumn did where I get kicked/elbowed/something in two places at once. So he’s definitely not got a lot of room left. There’s still a while to go though, so he’ll have to get used to it.
Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about the nursery and how I want to set it up, so it’ll be almost time for me to kick Andrew out of his office so I can get started on that. It’s pretty exciting and I really can’t wait to get started!!
