The best way that I can describe the "trimesters" is like a switch turning on and off. The first trimester I was sooooo tired, had nausea, had a hard time finding things I wanted to eat mixed with extreme cravings. My teeth actually hurt. I had eye problems. All in all though, it wasn't as bad as it could have been. When the second trimester started, I immediately felt awesome! Energized, back to eating semi-normal. There were times when I would actually forget I was pregnant! Now the third trimester is starting and the changes are once again abrupt. Major back pain, sharp pains in my ribs, feeling sluggish and irritable. My big toe and heel hurt. But again, I wouldn't trade it for the world, knowing the end result!
I go in for my monthly checkup today, and then they want to start seeing me every two weeks! It seems like that will make the time go so fast! Also today, I have to take a glucose test where I will drink something I am told tastes like the orange drink you used to get from McDonald's on school field trips. Showers are starting to get planned. My Mom is coming to visit this weekend and she is going to go to a breastfeeding class with me and help me finish up my registries. It's getting more and more exciting and "real" with each passing day!
