Back from the Doctor

Sam and I had an entirely uneventful doctor’s visit this morning.  Blood pressure, weight gain, tummy size all normal.  I got forms for the gestational diabetes test, which I should take sometime in early May.

I asked the doctor about The Crazy, mentioning that I’d read mood swings are supposed to come in the first trimester, and he shook his head, saying firmly “It’s common throughout pregnancy.  And after.”  I think he also shot a sympathetic glance at Sam, but I may be imagining that part.  Nothing for it but good diet and exercise, he says.  Regarding which, I’m now going to a prenatal yoga class on Tuesday mornings.  I like the cat and cow stretches, but my squatting crow pose is gonna need a lot of work.
