Third Trimester Exhaustion

These days, I am beat–exhausted–over it.  I could go and go and go just two or three weeks ago, but now? It’s like I have to stop and sit every 30 minutes. I ended up switching my patient load to pediatrics only which isn’t so bad. I enjoy working with the children and since it’s in the home setting, I enjoy working with and teaching the families as well.  It’s a nice change of pace from being in schedule crazy facilities.

This was my bump three weeks ago! I’m 30 weeks + 4 days now. He’s getting so big now! My only trouble with it is that I have almost lost 15lbs during this pregnancy!  Even my OB finally brought it up since it keeps going down. At first he thought it was intentional, but it’s not. I eat, but when I do I can’t eat more than a few bites or my stomach hurts really badly. If I’m having a really good day where I can pack away a decent meal, I end up with morning sickness the next morning. I can’t really win here, unfortunately.  What matters most is that Bug is on track for length and weight himself. 

When I do have energy (especially, when I still had great energy), I pretty much allow myself to nest. Hardcore. I’ve pretty much re-arranged and recycled or tossed everything in the linen closets, the bedroom and my office which will be a shared semi-nursery for during the day.  Also, gardening. My patio is finally almost worthy of being an outdoor space. Not to mention all the veggies and strawberries


Patio lights that got strung around the darkest part of the yard. I will probably do the other side of the fence too, just for balance rather than function.

Pooty and Baron are extremely happy to be able to go outside now. They spend hours out there. Pooty likes to go out just to scream, peep at neighbor cats and get sprayed with water when I am watering the plants.

It’s still a bit of a work in progress. The dirt plot still needs to be shoveled some more to remove the contaminated top soil (Previous tenants and my roommates some how thought it was a trash can, ash tray, and beer pour out. )
