Holy Mary mother of God….I AM IN THE THIRD TRIMESTER.
I can’t quite believe it but my body can. This past week I have noticed that my days are just a little bit more difficult in terms of maneuverability. On Friday I had to have a two hour nap in the afternoon before I picked up Monkey from pre-school. I was just exhausted. So much for getting stuff done around the house that day.
I got a lot better yesterday though and think that is because of the increased iron. I’ve been taking liquid iron since my OB appointment last week as my levels have started to drop a bit and were already a little low at the beginning of my pregnancy. Basically the minimum is 115 and in November they were 112 and now they are 108. So no a dramatic drop but it is falling. I’ve gone onto liquid iron as it doesn’t constipate. I’m using 2 sachets of spatone in juice (to aid absorption but also because it tastes like arse by itself) each day and I honestly do feel a lot better.
Yesterday was spent doing house organisation and every day from now on will be spent doing a little bit more until it is done as I am totally FREAKING out that we are THIRD TRIMESTER and not organised. I know I still have 12 weeks to go but like I said, maneuverability is already comprimised and it is only going to get worse from here.
We have a sexy new family car – whoooop! Eric helped me buy my brother’s Volvo XC60 as they have moved overseas and it is gorgeous and so beautiful to drive. I feel so lucky!!!
This is what is looks like. Sexy sexy. I got it yesterday.
Anyway back to house organising. The more I do now the more I can rest later. There will be an end even if the middle is chaos. I just have to keep on going.
