Week 26 – Doctor’s Appointment & Update

Monday I went to the doctor for my regular check up. I also had my sugar test at this appointment. I passed it!! My blood pressure was perfect. The doctor and I discussed some of the pain I am having. She told me its because this is my third pregnancy so it is harder on my body and I need to stay off my feet as much as possible. I so wanted to look at her and say that is really hard to do with three kids at home but I didn’t. I asked her when we will find out if my placenta is still low and she said at my next appointment we will do an ultrasound. I am not going every two weeks so my next appointment will be during Christmas break so the kids will get to go and see the baby. They are all so excited!!
I have had awful pregnancy brain since the beginning of my pregnancy but it seems to only be getting worse. I keep mixing things up, saying things wrong and forgetting things. It has gotten so bad that even the kids will realize I said something wrong. I also feel like I have constant chaos in my head. I tried to call the doctor about it today but their phones were down so I’m going to call back in the morning. I looked online tonight (which my doctor will say don’t do that) but I wanted to know what other people say has helped them. Of course its the things I’m already told to do…rest, drink lots of fluids, eat a well balanced diet, etc. All day I have thought it was Friday, realizing it is only Wednesday has been an awful feeling.

  1. I hope things get better for you. I know it's hard to stay off your feet with 3 kids in the house, but ask Adam to help out so you can relax a bit. I wish I could be there to help.

Let me know what you think!!
