26 weeks! The third trimester is around the corner and I must say I am already starting to feel some of the infamous symptoms. My mission for this week is to figure out the best way to sleep without being in pain.

I had my glucose test at our appointment and I don’t think it sat well with my stomach. Three hours after the appointment, I had dinner and two hours after that, I proceeded to puke the entire contents of my stomach and this was hilarious in hindsight because I had my first bladder incident…meaning I couldn’t control my bladder as I puked. My husband and I had a good laugh about it afterwards.
