Hello 3rd Trimester!
Yesterday, we met our Taco Friends for lunch and fellowship. (They are called our “Taco Friends” because when we get together every few months, we always meet at a cheap taco joint. My kids have always nicknamed our various friends to help keep them sorted out in their minds – so these are our Taco Friends.)
I always enjoy fellowshipping with these two families so much, and yesterday was no different. It’s especially nice to get together with them because they understand the pain of losing a child, and what that means for subsequent pregnancies and babies. Our conversation can be candid, yet encouraging.
They are also super good at making a very pregnant mama feel not so huge. 😉
(Excuse the shadow behind me – this was late last night after we got back from church.)
Most of the time, I hear a lot of shock in people’s voices when they find out I still have nearly 3 months to go. Our Taco Friends are more like, “You look so good!” If only more people were that encouraging to pregnant mamas!
I am still feeling really good (except for that night I had caffeine before bed – what was I thinking??!!). I am trying to take more breaks, and take full-blown naps as needed.
This week marks the OB appointment where I take my 1 hour glucose test. yippee. I am actually pretty nervous because I flunked the 1 hr for the first time with my last baby. I still passed the 3 hour with flying colors, but I don’t really want to have to do a 3 hour to prove I don’t have gestational diabetes. The 1 hour is bad enough. So, if you think of it, say a little prayer for me on Wednesday. I’ll let you know the results next update.
