Third Tri!

We're officially in the third trimester! Today I am 27w3d. I'm so excited to be in the home stretch! We have 88 days to go...

Unfortunately, with that mere 88 days comes some hardships that 99% of pregnancies face. I've started having trouble sleeping...even more then I was having before. I just can't get comfy. When I finally do fall asleep, I have to wake up shortly there after to go to the bathroom. Then about 30 minutes later I wake up because I'm parched and need a drink. Then the cycle repeats itself about three more times through out the night.

I'm so glad my husband has been letting me take naps whenever I need them. (When he's awake himself of of the curses of him working third shift.) He's been trying so hard to help out around the house and with the kids. Speaking of youngest is having surgery on Wednesday. Nothing serious. She's having tubes put in her ears, and her tonsils and adenoids out. I'm trying not to stress but it's hard when you're worried about your little one. She's been eating like a horse lately. I think she's going through a growth spurt...which is going to make it harder when she can't eat much. She is thrilled though that the doctor ordered her to eat ice cream and Popsicles for a week straight.

Well, I have a doctor's appointment on Tuesday so I'll update then!

Only 95 days to go!

Wow! I can't believe it! Our third trimester starts on Thursday...and on top of that, we're in double digits for days left in the pregnancy!

It's been an amazing journey so far. We had some interesting issues at the start of the pregnancy when a hurricane rolled through and we didn't get test results back. (Speaking of which, I still haven't gotten those BETA numbers! *shrugs*) In fact, they ordered the wrong test, then the right one, and I never got the results.

Then I had horrible morning sickness, to the point where I had issues getting out of bed without feeling sick. Thank goodness for Zofran! I don't know what I would have done without it. (Actually I do...I would have gotten very, very sick!)

Then I injured my shoulder on the minivan. I still can't believe I tried to stop the van door from opening. I learned a very painful lesson that day.

But beyond those few things, this pregnancy has been good.

I sent my IPs an invitation the other day for a 4D ultrasound. I'm so excited! I got them a big package at the ultrasound place that gives them a DVD and a package of pictures of the baby. I'll be about 31 weeks when we have the ultrasound done, so they'll get some really good pictures of the baby. It'll also give them a really good idea of what the baby will look like. I can't wait to see the look on G's face when she sees her son!

I got some really cute maternity clothes the other day. I bought some clothes off of Rockstar Moms. I have a Rolling Stones tube top, and an AC/DC halter now. I also have a tube dress. Hubby bought me two multi-way dresses, one in red and one in black.

On Thursday I went and got a massage. It was great! I've never felt so relaxed! I'm planning on going back in about three or four weeks for another one. I'm going to have a mani/pedi day in the next week or two. It's been really nice to be able to pamper myself lately...especially considering I have a three page paper due on Wednesday and a 7-10 page research paper due in a few weeks. I have a test in Math on the 25th, the same day as my youngest daughter's surgery.

Speaking of youngest daughter is having surgery on Wednesday February 25th. Nothing too major. She's having tubes put in her ears, and having her tonsils and adenoids removed. I think we're more nervous then she is. She's thrilled about having ice cream for almost a whole week afterward.

So that's about it. Hopefully I'll have more to report in a couple of weeks!

So not much has been going on. I'm getting bigger and it's obvious, to me at least, that the baby is growing stronger. I made a video a couple of weeks ago for my IPs. I set the TV remote on my belly when the baby was moving and recorded him kicking it and making it move. My IM loved it!

I haven't bee getting much sleep lately. The baby moves at night when I'm trying to fall asleep and then I wake around 2 or 3 am to go to the bathroom and then eat.

Speaking of eating...I'm still eating super healthy. I haven't had red meat in several weeks. I'm munching on fruits and veggies if I need a snack. I've been drinking my protein shakes religiously. Last night in our spaghetti, we had pork sausage, so that helps too.

Beyond that, not much going on with the pregnancy. I'm surprising my IPs with a 4D ultrasound. I have to get the invitations sent out today. I can't wait to see my IPs faces when they get to see a great picture of their son!
