Hello, 3rd trimester!!!!!
About the baby?
I wear what I can these days. I do love maternity clothes for comfort, not necessarily for looks! They are so frumpy and not flattering at all. I have pretty much been living in my black yoga pants.
GIRL! Kyleigh Mae!
Movement varies from day to day. I think it is partly because my placenta is anterior (meaning there is an extra layer in the front for her to kick through for me to feel) and that she still has enough room to change positions often. Some days I feel her move almost all day, and other days, if I am lucky, will feel her once or twice. I get worried, but I am trying my best not to stress about it because I know she is fine. :) I would love it if I felt her ALL day, every day though!! The days that I do feel her move, especially after not feeling her move, make it so much more special and I thank God over and over (and over) for her! I THINK I felt sweet little hiccups the other morning. I was laying in bed and had my hand on my belly and every couple seconds (consistently) I felt little tiny movements.
Be still my soul :)
Sleep is not too bad. Overall I get a good night's rest if I get to bed early! I do feel like I can never get enough of it though. It should be a law that pregnant ladies get an extra hour or two of sleep in the mornings, not matter what. ;)
No cravings, just really thirsty most of the day, especially at night time.
What I Miss?
Nothing at all. I love this precious little girl growing inside me more every day!
How 'bout this little thing called "pregnancy brain"! Ha, I had a couple silly moments this week. I know that pregnancy brain is a real thing, probably because they say that you think about your baby non-stop. And I find myself thinking about her 98% of the day, no matter what I am doing. I think about what she will look like, I think about what life will be like when she is here, I think about rocking her in the glider in her nursery, and how Reddell and I will be as parents (and a million other things). Anyway, I could have sworn this week I was 29 weeks (and I even told a couple people I was 29 weeks), not 28, but thanks to the 4 aps on my phone for reminding me that I am indeed 28 weeks. And let's not forget the fact that I poured water in my cereal the other morning. (!??) Aside from those, I just find myself forgetting silly little things, I repeat myself a lot thinking that I have not said something that I already have. I hear that "mommy brain" is just as bad, if not worse, than "pregnancy brain". Yippee! :)
Best Moment This Week?
Switching Dr's! Unfortantely, I was not comfortable with my doctor I'd been seeing. I kept pushing it aside because I did not want to go through the hassle of switching and I loved the fact that this doctor delivers at the hospital that is right down the road from our house. I finally decided it was best for me to make the switch and put my mind at ease. Now I will be delivering in Fayetteville, which is about 20 minutes away, but this doctor delivered my niece and now he will be delivering my baby girl. And the hospital I will be delivering at is very nice and roomy. Reddell and I are excited!
Looking Forward To?
Reddell and I are going to Nebraska Labor Day weekend to visit our St. Louis friends. To say that I am excited is a huge understatement!!!! We have been looking forward to this ALL summer, and I am excited for them to see how much KMae has grown since April! ;)
