Back in October, I was longing for that magical time in the second trimester when energy was supposed to return and everything was supposed to feel wonderful again. That time actually did come but it was pretty short lived - from about 20 to 24 weeks. Now that the third trimester and its various discomforts have arrived, I'm over it. But today is not for complaints! Some good things happened this week and I'd rather focus on those.
1. I passed the glucose test! It ended up making me feel crappy for the rest of the week so I'm very relieved that I don't have to do it again.
2. I finally have an OB and got my first appointment scheduled. He was one of my top two choices and I'm so excited about this, I can't even tell you. My family doctor is a piece of work and I cannot wait to be rid of her. I've written about her before but that turned out to be just the tip of the iceberg. We have a very large medical community in my city but it's mostly a lot of specialists. There are not enough family doctors to go around and the good ones aren't typically accepting new patients, which is why I've stuck with her up until this point. Now I can get the ball rolling on finding someone else and start getting on some wait lists.
3.Tonight, I will finally finish Under the Dome. It was an almost two month long slog and I can't wait to be done with it! Next up, Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell.
I'm also working out maternity leave arrangements right now but I will save that for a separate post. That subject gets a little complicated!
