Dear Third Trimester {28 weeks},

Copy of more H, 28 weeks 033Dear Third Trimester {28 weeks},
WHEW! We made it to the third segment of this pregnancy! And, I must admit, you have me tired! Sadly, you never fail to leave me with an aching back at the end of my days! But, you have me so very thankful!!! Thankful that we made it here and thankful that every doctor’s appointment gives us good news.

Because of you, the nursery is starting to take shape. …Walls are painted, glider is recovered, furniture is purchased, and decor is ready to be placed! I’m excited to see it take shape and to watch the first of Nash’s personality show up in his little room. more H, 28 weeks 035Because of you, showers are starting to be planned by my sweet friends! The little bits I know have me SO very excited! Nash is so blessed to have people that love him so and we can’t wait to celebrate!

Because of you, my belly is constantly in motion! This baby NEVER stops! He squirms and wiggles and jabs ALL of the time…there is really no specific time that he’s more active! I’m praying that it’s not a sign of things to come! :)

At our doctor’s appointment this week, the heartbeat was SUPER strong…150’s! But, when she did a “check,” she felt that he might be breech. So, because of that and the fact that my belly is measuring a little bit small (ARE YOU KIDDING?!?!…It’s HUGE!!!), we get a sonogram at 31 weeks! I can’t wait to see my littlest man’s face! And, I’m praying that he’ll do a BIG flip between now and then!!! more H, 28 weeks 033 Since we’ve made it here, I’m starting to make lists! …Things I need, things I want to do around the house and more! I feel like my nesting instinct isn’t quite as strong as it was when I was pregnant with Quinn, but it’s starting to pick up! I just don’t want to spend too much time organizing pots and pans when I could be enjoying the last little bits with my sweet only child! I must admit that I’m starting to grieve that a little bit…I have a feeling the emotional moments are about to pick up! more H, 28 weeks 034Because of you, I’m wanting grapes and apples!…But don’t be fooled by the healthy choices… french fries are really good too! Even though I fell a little less “full” than I did with Quinn, my weight is now at about the same place! Let’s just pray that nursing does it magic once again!!! Copy of more H, 28 weeks 036So, dear, sweet third trimester, go easy on me! Don’t go too fast or too slow! And, remind me to cherish every stranger that comments on my belly, every adoring look from my husband, every friend that gets to feel a kick and the little details (like writing in a baby book and looking for the perfect newborn hat) that I get to participate in each day! I am so blessed!
