Third trimester here I come!

Yup- here's the belly, growing bigger and bigger!

I love this part of pregnancy....and here are some of the reasons why:

-baby is wiggling, jumping, moving, hiccuping all the time (feels funny!)
-If I groan while attempting to tie my shoes, Jason will tie them for me
-I get back rubs often
-I have a good excuse to use 5 pillows at night
-Playing with my bellybutton is acceptable considering it's size
-I can still see my toes
-I get short of breath walking up a hill (which is kind of funny actually)
-3 more months and I get to hold my son!

...can't wait...

Placenta brain really does exist!

I seem to remember having a lightbulb idea of what I wanted to write about on here, but now have completey lost my brain's really becoming a losing battle. Placenta - 10, Brain -1. In fact, without scaring fellow nurses too terribly out there, I made a ridiculous medication error the other day and I can't explain it except to say that I think my placenta took all my blood from my brain and I was left with a few cells to do my work. I walked clear into a different patients room, not really remembering that my patient was supposed to be a man, and gave a random woman patient my man's medication. What was I thinking? I have never made such a blatant error but I figure my life is over as I once knew it. Is this what motherhood will be like? Forgetting things mid-sentence, walking one direction then realizing I should be walking the other, having blank-out moments when I am not really sure what is going on....yikes. Someone reassure me I'll get my brain back post-child!!!
