Well, Little Baby Whimsy is growing and doing great! I am now more than 27 weeks along, and in the third trimester! Baby Whimsy is expected be here in just about 3 months - July 30. My belly is out there and there is no denying that I am pregnant. Doctors appointments have been moved up to every two weeks instead of monthly. Its getting serious :)
Over the past week or two, and especially that last several days, Baby Whimsy has been moving around non-stop. I thought I had read that babies take on normal sleeping patterns while in the womb, that they somewhat stick to once they are born. If that is the case, this baby will never sleep! She is moving around all day and night, including when I take my 4-6 middle of the night bathroom breaks. This is actually pretty nice because it lets me know she is okay. (When I first started feeling her I would get somewhat nervous when I realized I had not felt her move in a couple hours).
A huge positive... I have been feeling MUCH better. I still sometimes get a bit sick in the morning a couple times a week but I will take that any day of the week over the miserableness that took over the first several months of the 9 month adventure!
One thing that had been worrying me is this past week, after I eat breakfast, I have been feeling dizzy and lightheaded. I was concerned that this was a sign of gestational diabetes. Thankfully I had a doctors appointment on Monday and we did a glucose screening then. I found out this morning that I am a negative for gestational diabetes (praise Jesus), but it turns out I am anemic. This really should not be a huge surprise considering my diet - meat in general is not on the top of my list of yummy things (with exception to ground taco beef... and yes, I am calling what Taco Bell serves as ground taco beef). I will need to start taking an iron supplement daily and that should get things back in order.
As for the nursery, well, I still have lots of really pretty ideas in my head and pinned on Pintrest. Mr. Whimsy's job has him completely swamped until the first of June so until then, we are kind of at a standstill. once June hits, he should (fingers crossed) have some extra time on his hands to get the paint brush and tools out.
SO, all in all things are good and getting better. We are blessed.
