Well, we are now into the third and final trimester! Quite apart from making it here, something I thought wouldn’t happen in the early weeks when I was bleeding and worrying, I am also celebrating that we have reached this point with no major concerns or problems. This week’s belly pic looks considerably bigger than last week’s to me. What do you think?
I have been very blessed with good health, all in all, throughout this pregnancy. Apart from my usual problems with low iron, and the expected tiredness and normal difficulties of being pregnant I have no real reason to complain.
I know that I have gained quite a bit of weight again this time. I am looking forward and planning on getting back on Weight Watchers once the babies are safely here. I am determined (again) to lose the extra load I am carrying. It doesn’t look good and it doesn’t feel good and I don’t like it.
One more symptom of pregnancy which has been making itself known lately is that of nosebleeds. Apparently, the increased bloody supply makes them quite common, although I have never had the misfortune of experiencing them in my previous pregnancies. This time is different. Last week alone I had four.
Tomorrow I have an appointment with the consultant to follow up on last week’s growth scan. As far as I know the scan went well and I was told there were no problems. The consultant will be raising any concerns she might have and checking on me and the babies. I will follow up with you later this week.
