We have finally made it to the THIRD TRIMESTER! I am so excited for this boy to come, but am trying to temper that "light at the end of the tunnel" feeling considering I still have 12 more weeks or so before his arrival. David and I are so ready to meet our little boy and hold him in our arms. This not-so-little one will continue to grow by 1/2 pound a week for the last trimester, which seems impossible at this point considering there isn't much more space in me. Here's the low-down for this week.
How far along: 28 weeks
blocks: GRACE & SALT
shirt: Old Navy
How far along: 28 weeks
Maternity clothes: Yep! I finally got a pair of jeans with the full belly panel. They are also a thinner material and very comfy. As embarrassing as this might be, I also got an extra long beach towel from Target, because mine was not covering this big ole belly.
Stretch marks: Yep. They haven't been expanding much over the past few weeks, but I'm sure that will change very soon.
Belly button in or out: Somehow it is still in. I don't know how. It was really deep pre-pregnancy, but it should make an appearance before this boy is born.
Sleep: Hit and miss. My Bump Nest pillow is the only thing making it half-way decent right now. And air conditioning. Thank goodness I live in the time that I do, because I am always overly hot and air conditioning is wonderful.
Best moment this week: Pulling off a surprise birthday party for my stepdad! Also, the adorably sweet card my husband gave me for Mother's Day.
Worst moment this week: The swelling and aches in my legs from moving and running around setting up for the party. It wasn't really that bad, but I have to remind myself to put my feet up every once in a while to keep the swelling to a minimum.
Miss anything: Lung capacity, seeing my feet, being able to bend over with ease.
Movement: Yep! I feel him moving most the day at this point. It's not always a kick, but he always rolling around and doing all sorts of crazy stuff.
Cravings: Nope. I've actually been having some major aversions this week. There are certain days where absolutely nothing sounds good but I know I have to eat. No bueno.
Queasy or sick: See above. I also had some weird nausea to go with that as well.
Looking forward to: My glucose challenge tomorrow. NOT! I don't think it will be that bad, but I'm anxious to see what the outcome is. Crossing my fingers that I pass with no gestational diabetes.
