I made it, guys. I'm finally at the third trimester--28 weeks today! Twelve more weeks to go, which seems like an eternity, but when I think about how far I've come...3 months is just a penny in the pot. Or some witty phrase like that.
Not gonna lie, but I kinda wish I looked like this (pregnant with Wilder, 28 weeks):
But now I have the most beautiful, perfect, amazing accessory:
He adds a nice punch of color to my ensemble, don't you think?How I'm feeling:
May I just list what's going on? It is not to complain, only to have, er, a record.
~nausea ~heartburn ~super tired ~back pain ~pelvic pressure ~some "digestive" issues ~not finding a comfy position to sleep in (wow, what a short list. I am so lucky)
How the baby's doing:
~No red flags of any sort with the baby's health, which is all I can ask for. Glucose test is next week, so, pray I pass. After that visit, I will start going for checkups every 2 weeks. Excited about that!
~This baby is pretty quiet during the day, unless I'm sitting. As soon as I go to bed, it's party time!
~According to BabyCenter, he/she weighs about 2.25 lbs and is 14.8 in. long, head to heel.
~I think it's a boy. It's really hard not to know the gender, but we'll know soon enough.
~We've no names solidified. When we do, we're not telling, because we like weird names.
~The nursery is slow going, but I have a color scheme (turquoise, orange, brown). Not what I had originally planned (wanted more organic neutrals) but there was just too much cute stuff at Babies R Us. I don't think we're going to paint, either. So I will hafto be ok with beige walls.
~The beautiful weather has improved my "morale"...we're going to start daily walks after our naps..until I can drag that wagon around no more.
Thanks for letting this post be all about baby and me...so glad I don't have to do my hair until the next pregnancy update.
