Third Trimester Timeline: Weeks 28 – Weeks 40
This post will probably have more pictures than words because my mind is mush. =] My little guy is now 11 WEEKS OLD (How did that happen?!) so I’m really having to dig into my brain to remember these last weeks of pregnancy.
So, the first part of the third trimester for me started very energetic. I was so excited for our little bundle of joy to join us! There’s nothing like counting down the weeks when they’re in the single digits! The nursery was coming along and the excitement just builds the closer you get to your date. And then, of course, when you have about six weeks left you start worrying that you really only have three weeks left because sometimes baby’s are early and then OH NO THE NURSERY ISN’T DONE and you stress out, which is not good. Try not to do that. =] The closer you get, the more your symptoms start to be like how they were when you first got pregnant – loss of appetite, sleepy, etc. And then your belly just gets so big that you can’t get comfortable enough to sleep. I sound like I’m complaining, sorry! I think I’m just tired. It’s a true story that “You think you’re tired now, wait until you have kids!” Ha! But I wouldn’t trade it for the world!
I can’t remember exactly when I stopped being able to wear my rings on my finger (due to swelling), but they eventually became a necklace pendant. (I actually had to get my rings resized 1/4 size bigger to be able to wear them again after pregnancy – and I waited 10 weeks to see if they would fit again. They did not.)
My manager at work threw me a baby shower luncheon and it was SO sweet. I totally wasn’t expecting it at all. You can read all about it here.
And that’s the last of the pictures! I didn’t get a chance to take a 40 week picture considering I went into labor on Peanut’s actual due date, and he was born at 1:05 AM the next morning. How crazy would that have been if he had been born on his actual due date?!
I’ll try to post about his birth story soon!
