Pregnancy update

I'm 25 weeks, one day today. That means we've got less than four months left - YIKES! So much to do, so little time!

And good grief, I'm tired. I wake up tired, even if I don't wake up at night. When I get home, it's all I can do to manage dinner (and yes, Brian helps with cooking and/or clean-up) and bath for Julian (it doesn't help that my freakishly night-owl child doesn't give it up and sleep until 10:00 or later pretty much every night), and then drag myself to bed. This is like the first tri tiredness on steroids. I can't decide if it's just part of being 40 and pregnant, or if I may be anemic. I remember being horribly tired with Julian at about this same point in the pregnancy, and it turned out I was anemic. I'm going to ask my doc about checking my iron levels, because it would be very uncool if I took to falling asleep at my desk at work every day. It's not like that could go unnoticed in a cube farm.

I guess so, huh? LOL Nah, tired or not, I'll be all right if mine stays in there a bit longer - at least until his room is presentable!

I have a night owl kid too. My 3yo has always been up late and slept in in the morning, even in the womb. Hope you feel better soon!
