Here we are...third trimester. It seems unreal, yet totally real all at the same time. I still have trouble believing that I'm actually pregnant, and then there are times where it is completely at the forefront of my mind...mostly because he is beating me up from the inside and won't let up! So, I'm officially 29 Weeks now, 80ish days left if he comes on his due date. We have everything we need, his room is completely done (I'll do a post of that on another day!).
How Big is Baby: Well, they tell me he is probably just over 2.5 lbs and a tad over 15 inches long so far. He is the size of a butternut squash.
Maternity Clothes: Yes, lots of yoga pants and tanks or maxi dresses.
Sleep: As much as I can lately. Going to be early, napping, sleeping late...I'm trying to sleep as much as I can because I'm always exhausted. So if I can get comfortable enough to actually fall asleep, I will! I get up about 3-6 times in the night to pee, doesn't seem to make a difference if I stop drinking an hour before bedtime, I am still up the same amount of times.
Food Cravings: No really strong cravings for anything. Except maybe apples and bananas. Oh and brownies.
Food Aversions: Still enchiladas. I just cannot. Blech.
Symptoms: Just the normal complaints, nothing really out of the ordinary.
Movement:My little man is extremely active. Like in constant motion it seems. My belly rolls and thumps and bumps all day and night. He's definitely more active in the afternoon and evening than in the morning, it's fun to sit and just watch my belly contort based on whatever he's doing in there.
What I'm Looking Forward to: Sleeping on my belly. Not peeing myself every 3.2 seconds. A banana margarita.
What I Miss: Sleeping on my belly. Being able to cough, sneeze, laugh and move without peeing myself every 3.2 seconds. Banana margaritas.
Next Appt: November 25th, ACK! We are down to every 2 weeks for appts now! I'm not ready! After this appt I switch to a new OB and that appt is already set for December 2nd.
Baby Asa's heart rate was in the 140's and he kept moving while she was trying to get it. Also, I originally lost 10 lbs in the first trimester, and so far I have gained back 7. I anticipate I will gain at least 5-10 lbs this last trimester though.
