Well hello third trimester....where have YOU been!?
It's hard to believe that we are really on the downhill here. I'm going to deviate from the regular format because I felt it was getting a little boring and repetitive.
So, yes, tomorrow marks 28 weeks and the beginning of the third and final trimester. Baby K is now 2 1/4 pounds and almost 15 inches long. He has been kicking like a soccer player lately. He is extremely active these days, which is such a great and reassuring feeling. I had a doctor's appointment last week that also consisted of another ultrasound and glucose test. My doctor wanted to check the baby's growth since at the 19 week ultrasound he was measuring 1 week smaller. To make a long story short, he still is so my due date is probably off by 1 week. I am still staying with the July 19th due date because when does the baby really come on the due date anyway? I think it's more something to keep in mind if I were to go into labor early or way late. As my doc said "we'll know his due date when you go into labor". The good news is he's not measuring 2 or 3 weeks smaller! The little bugger is enjoying the jack-knife breach position. They assure me that there is time for him to move, but it makes me nervous since Sam enjoyed that position so much too and he stayed that way.
I have to admit that being pretty sure this is my last pregnancy it does make me want to enjoy it and not be in such a hurry for it to be over. When he's moving around inside me, I find myself just putting my hand there and savoring the moments. He is such a miracle and already loved so much!
His room is painted and the new accumulated clothes have been hung. I still need to go through the hand-me-downs from the big boys to see what will fit and what won't. I don't think my seasons will match up unless he turns out to be a smaller than average baby. Peanut was always about a size bigger when he was a baby and Bubba was about right on for his age/size. I would like to weed out the clothes if possible, but if I can't I suppose I'll just have a ginormous garage sale next year.
Our storage room is busting at the seams - ask Trophy Hub about it and his blood pressure goes up 20 points. He will be grateful when it's cleaned. Or even just organized.
Until next time...
My boy is almost home, and why is Robert Irvine yelling at me?? - We have been watching a lot of "Restaurant Impossible" lately...you know, the show on the Food Network where professional chef Robert Irvine goes to failin...
