Week 28... Third Trimester

I don't know why my picture is so blurry but there it is, my supposedly HD camera. Anyway, I finally made it to the third trimester! I am really hoping time starts to go by faster because I can't wait! On my calendar I have each week written down what number week I am. It's nice to start seeing some higher numbers!

I am really working on moving more and eating as good as I can because I would love to stop packing on the weight each month :) What a lovely side effect of pregnancy. My other new fun things include not being able to sleep at night, hot flashes, leg cramps, and heart burn. I realize it could be worse but ew!

The best things are... actually looking pregnant instead of just fat, feeling the baby really move and getting better kicks, and going to get pedicures since I can no longer comfortably reach my toes.

I know I am totally weird but lately when I am just laying there feeling the baby doing weird turns or whatever, I start feeling really sorry for the baby and having no room and being squished. I get that it is natural and it's not a problem but I can't help really feeling bad!

I also have really vivid dreams. They used to be about always leaving my baby somewhere or forgetting to feed it and that sort of neglectful thing. But in my dreams I didn't really care and this "baby" and I had no attachment and in fact I resented it for being such a nuisance. They were bad. Not the lovely dreams I had thought an expecting mother should have. BUT, just in the past couple weeks that has totally changed into dreams of having my baby that I actually love and I have real concern for it when I neglect it.... like when I left it at the grocery store, laying on a pile of apples. Boy, I'm gonna be a great mom! Hopefully, the dreams will just get better.

Anyway, I am getting Patton's room really put together. I don't want to post any pictures until it is totally done. So, I am trying to get that done. Trouble is that we stated to paint the crib but it looks like we will have to sand it down to keep it from chipping. So, we have to start all over again on that one. It might be a little while!


  1. haha a pile of apples?? That's great :) Can't wait to see the nursery, I'm sure it's going to look amazing!!

  2. Wow you look soo pregnant in this picture compared to the last one! Its awesome! Also, I'm thinking we should milk this excuse for pedicures for as long as possible! :)
