Hello 3rd trimester and 12 weeks left until baby! This middle part of pregnancy went pretty quickly and now 12 weeks doesn’t sound like a lot of time left. I am starting to get a little nervous about labor (especially since I know what it’s like), but also getting super excited to meet this little guy! (Picture taken at 27 and a half weeks)
Weight Gain: Thankfully it seemed to have slowed down a little but I haven’t been weighing myself much so I don’t know. My 28 week appointment is later this week.
Symptoms: My heart burn has pretty much gone away. I think part of this is that I’m eating better, but I also remember only really have heart burn in the second trimester with Sebastian. I also have a pretty achey lower back by the end of the day which sometimes makes hard to find a comfortable position to sleep in.
Cravings/Aversions: I really haven’t had any specific cravings or aversions. My appetite isn’t quite as crazy as it was either, thank goodness!
What I am missing: Starting to miss alcoholic beverages a little. Could really go for a glass of wine or a margarita!
Size of baby: Baby is the size of an eggplant.
Sleep: I’m actually doing better with this one despite my early wake up time for school. I’ve been able to go to bed at a decent time and get pretty good sleep during the night. I still wake up once or twice to pee though.
Workouts: I did a really good job working out at the local gym for a couple weeks but last week I had 3 meetings after school and then lost the motivation the other two days. This week I plan to pick the working out back up with a friend (who is also pregnant) after school.
Clothing: I’m pretty much cycling weekly though maternity black pants, black leggings, white capris, blue pants all with various shirts, jeans and a couple of dresses/skirts.
Gender: Sweet Sawyer James. Can’t wait to meet you buddy!
Sebastian’s Reactions: Sebastian is definitely excited and talking about Sawyer a lot. They way he says Sawyer’s name is so stinking cute I need to get it on video asap. He also kisses and cuddles with my belly.
Best moment the past couple weeks: Getting to see Sawyer again on the ultrasound. The lady printed tons of pictures out for us and got the best picture I can’t quit looking at (see below).
Looking Forward to: Still looking forward to cooler temperatures although it has gotten slightly better. Instead of 90+ we’ve been getting 85-88.
Movements: Sawyer still moves a lot especially at night when I lay down. As soon as we lay down he goes crazy and Matt’s been getting to feel all sorts of crazy movements. It’s been one of my favorite parts of my day.
I shared this comparison shot on Facebook last week. My belly has grown a lot!
