I cannot believe that we have made it to the 3rd trimester. It is really exciting! I admit that I am one of those women who looooove being pregnant. Sorry if you find them annoying, but I am feeling good. Despite what the number on the scale says, I think I am looking pretty good too :-) I love the belly and am having a great time being obvously pregnant. I have a few un-fun pregnancy symptoms (aka heartburn) and need an afternoon nap every day, but who doesn't love a good nap?
I admit that the whole labor thing makes me a wee bit nervous but I have started reading the books and have have signed up for a class so hopefully that will help. Knowledge is power...but is it pain relief??? I will have to get back to you on that one. Although I might not need any of that breathing stuff since baby's favorite position is transverse (lying across my belly instead of head down). Now I know there is plenty of time for him to turn around, but he was sitting like that at the 19 wk ultrasound, and a 24 wk ultrasound, and now we are at 28 wks and he is sitting in the exact same position. He seems quite comfy. Lots of kicks and squirms these days and the belly just keeps getting bigger (I will try and take a photo to prove it).
I have also actually made progress on the soon-to-be-baby room. We have to get rid of a few pieces of furniture and then maybe I will take a "before" photo for you. Then we are having an artist come and paint the room. So I will definitely include an "after" photo. This woman's work is amazing and I can't wait to see the finished product!!
As you can tell, life is all about baby at this point. I will try and come up with some interesting non-baby updates for you for the next post.
