Hello, Third Trimester!

28weeksMy midwife says I’ve been in the third trimester for a week now. All of my pregnancy apps say it starts today. Either way, I’m now in the THIRD TRIMESTER!

Where the heck has this pregnancy gone? Gah.

Asher is constantly on my sciatic nerve, which is not fun. Other than that, and feeling enormous, I still feel pretty good! Energy is okay even though I don’t sleep very well.

Our first cloth diapers arrived this week too! Super exciting!

We are now moved into our new place, prepping for Christmas, and Asher’s arrival. Things are finally a little less crazy around here. Hence the blog posts resuming!

How far along? Twenty-eight weeks today! Third trimester is here!

Are you showing? Absolutely.

Gender: Baby BOY #2! :)

Total weight gain: About ten pounds! 

Maternity clothes: Oh yes. I live in my maternity leggings. Invest in some, you wont regret it.

Stretch marks: Just the pre-existing ones. Thanks, Aiden.

Sleeping: Rough. I’m always tired but never sleep well. He’s soooo low. And I’ve had a lot of pelvic pain and sciatic pain the last few weeks. Ouch.

Food Cravings: I’m just hungry. But nothing ever sounds good.

Anything making you sick or queasy? Meat. Asher is clearly a vegetarian. 

Miss Anything? Sleep and wine. And sushi. And wine.

Movement: Strong kicks now! Loving watching my belly move!

Labor signs: Just Braxton Hicks fairly often.

Symptoms: Uncomfortable and tired. But overall, feel pretty good! 

Belly Button in or out: OUT. 

Wedding rings on or off: On.

Happy or moody: All of the above.

Best moments this week: Asher wiggling like crazy when Aiden talks to my belly. Melts a momma’s heart!

Looking forward to: Nesting!

Looking forward to: MOVING! And finally being able to feel even the slightest bit prepared for this baby. Can’t wait.

We finally met with our new doctor last week. Everything seems to be lining up perfectly for my VBAC. Asher is head down now too, thank the Lord. Breech babies are uncomfortable at any stage! He’s still really low though, so I still have a lot of pressure. To the point where it feels like he’s going to just fall out sometimes. (I wish it were that easy!)

Here’s a bump shot for you:
