Yes. It’s been a long time since I’ve posted but life has been so weird! Since I’ve posted I had my second baby shower in San Jose, a third with my family up here! Both were so much fun! I loved seeing all my family and friends together gathered over delicious food! The third was a surprise designed to makes me as uncomfortable as possible! And I loved it!
I also found out that I’m anemic. And while I really tried to up my iron in addition to the iron supplement I was taking, my body just didn’t absorb any of it. Because I’m so close to my due date I’ve had to go in twice a week to get my iron through in IV. It’s such a bummer, I really worked on pairing my iron rich foods with vitamin C and trying to cut out things that diminish absorption, but none of it worked. Hopefully, my iron will go back to normal after I deliver and all will be well!
When I’m not fighting off exhaustion, I am obsessively organizing. It feels so good to get rid of stuff (obviously belonging to my husband) that I’ve been trying to throw out for years, And the best part is that I was able to sell most of it on craigslist and use the money to get the rest of the stuff I wanted for the baby. Yay for being thrifty!
I also have continued to workout. I lowered the intensity of my workouts but increased my frequency. I manage to walk for at least 20 minutes every day. It actually helps me feel less tired and prevents me from getting a little stir crazy.
The last of my to-do’s include:
Getting the car seat installed
Prepping some freezer meals for postpartum
Sewing some nursing infinity scarves
Organizing like a crazy person
