Third Trimester

Thats right nerds! I am 28 weeks and starting my 3rd trimester! Thank heaven is all I can say. I believe the 2nd trimester is the easiest but likely, the longest feeling. I have been feeling great, I am starting to feeling large and in charge but overall good.

This is not my proudest outfit. Looking slumpy but surprisingly comfy.

Cravings?: I crave deli sandwiches, like from Jimmy Johns or Jason's Deli. I cannot get enough of the salty and the chewy bread. Also, sugar. Love it, always.

Pains?: Not really, only in my hip. If I sleep on the same side too long it cramps up which is uncomfortable.

Emotions?: This has been the most prominent side effect during the 2nd trimester which is odd because they say that you are suppose to feel calmer during this time. Not me, I was all over the place with anxiety. Yikes. It is getting better though.

Fears?: Labor, being my first child, I fear the unexpected that labor brings. I just see women screaming on TV and think about my body pushing a human out of it and it is startling. I have moments where I think "I don't think I am ready for this" but its kind of too late :)

Excitement?: Unbelievable excitement! I cannot wait to meet this little dude. He is going to be so loved, its insane. We just painted the nursery and it felt so good to make space for him. And I love so much that its a him, it feels so right.

Clothing?: Still only have 1 pair of maternity pants and my butt still doesn't fill them out correctly. I wear them anyway but still wear pre-maternity jeans with a rubber band. They aren't the most comfortable but I don't think pregnancy is known for comfort. This child doesn't seem to grow anyway but out so I have gotten some surprised looks when I tell people I still have 2+ months. Long shirts are becoming necessity.

Happy Tuesday!

I can't believe you're in the 3rd trimester! I'm so excited for you! Also, I can't believe you have gotten away with only 1 pair of maternity jeans. Pregnancy has been good to your behind.
