I have officially entered the third trimester this past Wednesday. I cannot believe that I am already in the third trimester! It seems like just yesterday I was telling my family and friends that I was expecting.
Everything is going great still. A few weeks ago I did the glucose test, which was not as bad as I expected it to be. My sister-in-law Jeni mentioned that the test includes this drink that was not the best tasting drink in the world. Actually I think that she said that it was disgustingly sweet. Due to this forewarning, I was expecting the worse. I don’t know if they modified the recipe, but it was not as sweet as Jeni said it was. The worst part about it was that I had to chug it in 5 minutes or less. Who drinks that fast anyway (besides a college student at a frat party :P)?!? Luckily it was cold and I was thirsty, so I was able to drink it pretty fast. I even impressed the receptionist who provided the drink. HAHA! I am happy to report that the test came back perfect so I do not have to worry about it anymore! Such a relief! I also had my checkup this week and I was told that I am measuring perfect and that everything is looking great. I am very happy about this.
I managed to go for a bike ride this past Wednesday. We rode for 20 miles and averaged 14.7 mph. Not bad for being 28 weeks pregnant. HAHA! I must admit that the ride kicked my butt. I was pretty tired after the ride. Nevertheless, I was super excited that I was able to ride and felt good during the ride. I am hoping to ride again this weekend.
I also managed to go on a most amazing walk last weekend with my sister and mom. I found out about an organized walk that took place on a private property to see fields of bluebells. It was the most beautiful sight! A large carpet of bluebells below hundreds of beautiful tall trees. While on the walk, a woman asked me if she can take my photo. Apparently she is a professional photographer. She sent me the photos the other day. Above is one of the photos that she took and below is a photo that I took.
The girl is still kicking a bunch. I had the best moment a few days ago. While driving home from the bike ride on Wednesday, I was massaging my belly, which I often do, and noticed a pretty firm spot on the upper left side of my belly. While massaging it, I noticed that it went away but then came back. I think that it was either the girl’s foot or some other body part. She was moving it as if I was tickling her. HAHA!! It was so fun!! This was the first time that I actually felt her body. So amazing! I found some other part of her body last night too. It’s so fun to actually feel her even more, aside from kicking.
