3rd tri symptoms

I guess the 3rd trimester is really upon me now. Yesterday, I had swollen hands by midday and swollen feet last night. Sigh. And after several days of going all night without having to pee, I peed 3x last night!
Yesterday was our labor marathon class. We sure were tired and butt-sore by the end of the day. It was worth going to but I was very dissapointed in the small amount of labor coping positions and techniques practiced. Apparently 90% of moms get epidurals so they gear the class more for that. Oh, well. Had my first bout of “can’t seem to catch my breath” during it. I remember that from last pregnancy and it is disconcerting. I did get some good personal talk about VBAC issues with the instructor/RN though. She says the VBAC pendulum is swinging- and not the right way- but right now the hospital goes with the doctor’s wishes.
I am really tired today. What’s it been? 10 days? 2 weeks? It picked a good day since it’s a lazy day with very little planned.
Brendan was very sweet and fun last night. We sat on the couch together. He had found a ball of plasti-tack and I made him a circular rope out of it. He had lots of fun roping my fingers and toes and saying “In the [name of the] hundred-acre wood, I capture you!” That’s straight out of Pooh’s Heffalump Movie. Then I put the circle on my nose and he copied me and made pig noises.
Why are pointless moments like these so fun… and so seldom? I think I stay too busy. :/
Beach getaway coming up next!
