Making Progress

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!


  1. Yay for an OB! That whole things sounds crazy so I'm glad things are starting to move in a positive direction!

    I'm sorry the "good" 2nd tri feelings didn't last long! Mine have not hit yet...I guess I'm looking forward to seeing what happens at 20 weeks :-)

    Also, I'm looking forward to hearing about your maternity leave arrangements because recently I've been thinking about what I want to do and what would work for my company and position. It's stressing me out a bit quite honestly. Hope it's working out for you!

  2. ha, I think I had the same short "good window" as you, about 20-23 weeks! That was the short time where there was no morning sickness & the painful discomfort hadn't started yet. Hopefully 3rd tri doesn't get too bad for you. Yay for having an OB! :)

  3. I was just thinking about you and hoping everything is going well! I know your EDD was very recently so I really hope you have a sweet healthy baby in your arms! Sending you good vibes and hope everyone's happy and healthy!
