Things have been going well for me albeit slow. This pregnancy has been so different than my first 2 that I don't feel I have any comparable experience. I have been really tired and lethargic and my brain is in a constant fog. I learned at my appointment last week that my blood pressure is low for me. Not something they are at all concerned about, but I think it is affecting me since it is 15-20 pts lower (on both systolic and diastolic) than I usually am. I also learned at my last appointment that I have a marginal cord insertion so I have to go in for another ultrasound at 30 weeks. Somehow I went from planning on one ultrasound at most to having 4 so far. I am kinda done with it. Anyone have any experience with this? They didn't seem concerned so I am not, I guess, just never had issues like this before. At this point I am just looking forward to having a healthy bundle to cuddle.
I had a house guest for the last week and although I love seeing my cousin the one time per year I do, I am so excited to get my house back finally. We are trying to catch up with all of the things we wanted to do this summer and didn't that things have been way too hectic. On top of that my 3 y.o. DS has been CRAZED. He has so much energy and is so head strong, it is exhausting. I love him to pieces and he is awesome, but woah. There is a level of energy needed that I just don't have. I am hoping that we move out of the not listening destructor phase soon.
As for caffein consumption I drink 2 cups of regular coffee daily, I don't think I would survive without it.
As for alcohol, I have ordered a drink with dinner when we have gone out a few times. I usually drink about a quarter of it and then my husband gets the rest, which I know he doesn't mind. I like the taste, but my stomach doesn't handle it well.
I love everyone's updates and wish I could take the time to respond personally to more posts. This DDC really helps me connect to my pregnancy more. Maybe that is weird since it is virtual, the pregnancy just hasn't really been a focus of my busy life lately. Good luck ladies, we are getting close!
