Hello Third Trimester

Well, I've entered the third and final trimester and honestly?
I can't really believe it.
I'm starting to see holiday decorations in stores
and our baby is due right after the holidays.
Craziness.

Our schedule is so full over the next couple months
including a trip home this weekend, 2 baby showers and maternity photos next month,
Thanksgiving in PA, and a 10 year high school reunion, 
followed by Christmas of course.
So much goodness to come.
One of these days, I plan on blogging more than my weekly pregnancy updates.
I just uploaded the hundreds of photos from our trip to the Berkshires, so another post is in the works!

  • We had our 28 week doctor's appointment today and baby girl is growing right on track. The doctor was also able to feel her position and her head seems to be going in the right direction. That makes for a happy momma.
  • My 28 week "homework" was to find a pediatrician and register for childbirth classes.
  • I already checked registering for classes off the list. Tomorrow evening we have a breastfeeding class, and in the next couple months we have an infant care class {learning how to swaddle, diaper and bathe the babe} and a prepared childbirth class. Yes, a breastfeeding class on a Friday night...my how times are changing!
  • I had some routine lab work done today and also got another Rhogam shot. And I got to enjoy the lovely orange drink for my glucose tolerance test. Honestly, it really wasn't as bad as I was expecting...tasted like flat orange soda. Hoping everything comes back normal.
  • Baby girl is moving around all.the.time. I love laying in bed at night and watching the kicks and squirms though my belly. 
  • Tonight I'm making homemade pizza and the hubs and I have a date to put together the crib. We should have some progress on the nursery in the next week or so. Photos to come, promise!
