Life has been pretty hectic lately, hence the lack of updates. The stress of the last few weeks (months?) has started to take it's toll. I have been feeling pretty exhausted lately. Even though I have plenty of reason to be tired, it is a little disconcerting at times. I had my 24 week check up with Dr. Deprez on 4/18/13. My 1 hour glucose test went well, my glucose level was 88. My H/H were a bit low 11.2/32.7 so I am now taking iron, I am hoping this will help give me some energy too! Everything else looked good on my checkup, my weight did jump a bit but I am pretty convinced our trip to NYC the same week as my appointment did not help. We ate like kings and queens! Other than feeling tired, I really can't complain because I've had a healthy pregnancy. I sometimes feel like I'm moving through molasses though. My belly is certainly growing and I still feel so much bigger than I did with Maddie. The comment of the week (26 weeks) has been, "wow, you REALLY look pregnant now!" In the past week my right SI joint started acting up a bit. I am able to pinpoint how it happened after I assisted with a patient at work during an emergency. Since that day I have been having some mild pain but still nothing like it was with Maddie. OMT and PT are still helping. One thing is for sure, this baby moves A LOT! She is a very active little girl in there. Her movement in my belly has been visible to the eye for a few weeks now. Now that it is May it is really feeling like this little girl will be here soon. We have to get moving on preparing her room and closet. Thankfully Paul is well aware of how my brain operates. We are hoping to clear out the room and put in the closet system this weekend, of course with Uncle "Rog's"help.
