Bye Bye 2nd Tri! Weeks 24-27

by

Happy Tuesday loves!

I am so so happy to finally be in my third and final trimester! Pregnancy is sooo long! Gah! I am DYING to see what baby girl looks like and for her to just be here already! πŸ™‚ This is my last week of work which is bittersweet since I have been nannying Riley for 2 years but it will be so nice to have a couple months to get ready for the baby to come and enjoy my last weeks/months of free time, ha! But for reals. I know I won’t ever have this kind of freedom and flexibility in my life again so I will be taking full advantage, that’s for sure! πŸ™‚ Feel free to offer up some fun date night activities for the hubs and I do to before the baby comes. We’re working on a bucket-list of things but it’s always nice to get some in-point, so comment below!IMG_5094

  • Baby is the size of an eggplant
  • I finally had to go a maternity store and pick up some new clothes
  • I’ve been building up her clothes and accessories collections

Week 27:

  • Baby is the size of a head of lettuce
  • I passed my glucose test
  • It’s the last week of my second trimester
  • I started having braxton hicks contractions
  • Baby girl’s been hiccuping

Can you tell how exhausted I am these days from these photos? Ha! The struggle is real I tell you! I can’t wait to be able to sleep comfortably again! And yes I know I am going to very sleep deprived, no need to constantly remind me everyone! But at least I will be able to sleep on my back and stomach again! It’s the little things I tell you! πŸ˜‰

Symptoms/cravings these last few weeks:

  • Very vivid dreams-continued
  • Constant trips to the bathroom-continued (baby girl is always poking my bladder)
  • Heat sensitivity-continued, I get hot so easily and the heat makes me so nauseous
  • Pregnancy brain-continued-the struggle is real let me tell you
  • Weight gain and general body enlargement- face/back/hips/waist/legs/belly
  • Braxton hicks have started
  • I can’t bend over or I feel like I’m going to throw up- for reals. There’s no room for food and a baby
  • Lots of back pain during the day and at night-continued-thank God for this pregnancy pillow, I highly recommend it and this pillow for the car and the couch
  • Constant pinching in my right hip- especially if I stay in one position too long
  • My sweet tooth is out of control these days-continued, still craving fruit-especially watermelon- but at least I passed my glucose test
  • If I change positions to fast then I get a little dizzy/light headed so I need to be careful moving too fast, ha makes me feel so old-continued
  • I can no longer eat spicy or acidic foods or I get heartburn/acid reflux pretty bad-especially at night
  • Pregnancy insomnia- if I’m not trying to get comfortable or getting up to go the bathroom my mind is racing and I can’t sleep
  • Her kicks and moves are pretty uncomfortable/painful and she is so active- I think we’re in for a wild child πŸ˜‰

I think that’s everything that’s been going on with this pregnancy of mine lately! Thank you all so much for your kind words, support and prayers! We’ve got about +/- 11 weeks to go! I can’t wait!!!!!! Have a wonderful rest of your day and if you haven’t finished all your shopping for the Nordstrom anniversary sale, make sure to check out my top picks here!
