Here are a few little tidbits from this week:
*Throwing up in a parking lot is embarrassing.Â Just sayin’.
*I haven’t been taking the Zofran as often.Â Still not convinced it works…at all.
*I got the dreaded “your iron is low” call from the Dr’s office this week.Â Already?Â Surely not.Â Bleh.Â For you curious ones, my hemoglobin was a 9.Â The lowest I have ever been in pregnancy is a 7.Â And no doctor has been able to figure out how I manage to continue to function.Â For some reason I do not see any side effects from the low iron, but I know it isn’t good for the baby, so I do my best to stay around a 10.Â Not normal, but good for me.
*I’ve begun to get up several times a night.Â Usually I can go right back to sleep, but other times it takes a little while.Â By the time I’m at the end of my pregnancy, I’m up for hours at night.Â With my last baby, I spent a lot of time watching Deadliest Catch online in the middle of the night.Â My husband thought this was rather funny.
*Those upper 80 degree temps in the forecast look mighty nice.Â I don’t like Summer when I’m not pregnant.Â Throw in pregnancy and weeks of 100+ temps and you have one grumpy mama.Â You will hear a huge sigh of relief from my corner of cyberspace when Autumn gets here.
