Third Trimester! Win!
I have to do my post earlier than I would like today because I have a client meeting pretty far away and won't get home until near midnight. A part of me really hates the travel and late night. And a part of me feels ever greatful for this client because I had to visit them on the day of my successful IUI. I'm sure that fertilization occurred on that trip (their wasn't any homework because of the trip that month). So every time I'm back there I think it's a lucky place.
But tomorrow I might not be so cheerful because I have my first non-stress test and biophysical profile at 7:30 am and I will have to be out of the house before 7am to make it on time. I will definitely be dragging tomorrow afternoon.
The good news has been that I haven't had swelling since wearing my compression socks! Score for me! I considered Hillary's request to take a picture of them, but my feet are just not photogenic enough for the internet. The non-swelling isn't very exciting anyhow.
The trouble breathing deeply is extremely annoying and frustrating. I find myself focusing on it and getting upset when I can't manage it which kinda makes it worse. But as high up as I can feel the baby kicking these days it doesn't surprise me.
And I'd like to report my first real "pregnancy craving". Since becoming pregnant, I have used it as an excuse to justify chocolate or ice cream or pickles, but I like those foods and would eat them at times regardless of what's in my womb. But over the last couple of weeks I have been growing a desire to eat... RAISINS (duh duh DUH). I'm not a raisin fan (except for the California Raisins of course... maybe their Christmas special will be on this year!)... I can stand them, but wouldn't choose to eat them normally. But I walked by a bag of trail mix the other day and couldn't resist it for the raisins, and they are definitely my favorite part of the mix. I've since stocked up on those nasty little black things (and golden ones too).
Alright, time to work.
