well, i guess my easy second trimester is over, and it's time to say hello to the third trimester with a bang! every morning, for the last... oh, five days, i wake up feeling like i've had an intense workout. it started with my abdomen a couple weeks ago. i started feeling sore and achy, like i'd been using my stomach muscles. now, every muscle in my body aches! it is hard for me to get in and out of bed or off the couch, and every step i take hurts. when i was pregnant with river, my back and hips hurt from five weeks until he was born. this time, i get it all over... yay.
other than that, not much has changed. i have an appointment with my midwife tomorrow morning, and i'm really hoping my iron has gone up, otherwise there is the chance that i can't have a homebirth. i haven't been as consistent as i should in taking my iron, but i feel really good (other than being achy). i feel like i have a lot of energy, but i'm not going to get my hopes up. my midwife will draw some blood tomorrow and i'll get the lab results in a few days. keep your fingers crossed.
