Hello 3rd Trimester!

We are 2/3 of the way to a baby! It’s amazing to think it’s been almost 6 months since we flew to Vegas for the transfer. So much has happened since then that it seems like it was eons ago, but at the same time I can’t believe we’re only about 12 weeks from delivery. This summer is going to fly by too because we have so much going on. The heat is supposed to start ramping up this week so I think I’ll be good with working in my air conditioned office 😀 I’m also planning on taking the kids to the local rec center tomorrow so we can hang out in the outside pool for a bit. I think this may end up being a regular Tuesday thing. I’m also thinking we need a little pool at home LOL bring on all the water this summer!

Weekly Update:

How far along: 28+1

How big is baby: about the size of an echidna, 16 inches long and 2.5 pounds

Symptoms: Lots of 3rd tri symptoms…Braxton Hicks sometimes with painful cramping in my lower abdomen sometimes not. Heartburn, restless legs (started taking magnesium for this and it seems to be helping), tired, winded easily…all the fun stuff

Movement: tons! She is busy in there. I can tell she’s getting more cramped because there’s a lot more rolling around and less kicking/punching. Her head is down and it feels pretty low when she moves it around

Sleep: Not bad, but I’m still tired during the day

Miss anything? sleep

Food cravings? sweets mostly and peanut butter

Anything making you queasy or sick? too much sugar without enough protein

Best moment of the week? Wyatt’s 5th birthday. We didn’t have a party or anything because we’re taking the kids to Great Wolf Lodge at the end of the month, but he was just excited it was his birthday. He also LOVES that he shares a birthday with his Grandpa, he thinks it’s the coolest thing.

This week’s bump picture looks a lot like last weeks. I definitely look uber pregnant these days. I feel like I got really big really fast and have now kind of leveled out a bit thank goodness!
