Third trimester. Exactly 3 months, or 13 weeks, or 92 days to go ... but who's counting? :) I think it's been 9 weeks since I've done one of these so I figured it was time. :)
How far along: 27 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +20 lbs - eek! Although I'm back to being nearly on track with Luke, so I'm hoping to stay under the 40lb mark (which was my weight gain with him. Not sure I ever really went public with that info!) So much for the 25-30 I was supposed to shoot for.
Um, yes. I've noticed that this time I tend to wear more of the ones that are fitted, rather than the ones that tie in the back and billow out - no idea why. Oh, and I was brave and bought a pair of maternity skinny jeans!
Stretch marks: Just everything from before, which is alot.
Sleep: Pregnancy wise, not bad. Otherwise, it's been better.
He is a little acrobat. We're to the point that other people can feel him as well - including Luke! He was fairly concerned hearing us talk about him kicking though. "Mommy, my baby brother is kicking you??"
No big cravings. Loving meat, chicken is ok again, and find myself drinking Arnold Palmer's quite a bit.
Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks a few times a day
Belly Button in or out: Just about completely out
What I miss: Spiked apple cider
What I am looking forward to: Finishing the nursery, 3D/4D ultrasound in a few weeks
I'm not going to lie, the past few weeks have been rough. I got a cold several weeks ago and have had the annual "cough that lasts weeks and never goes away." I've actually had a few panic moments because I start coughing so hard and just can't catch a breath. It's been pretty miserable with the pregnancy. I went to a medcheck and was treated for bronchitis and then had an appt at the Academy of Allergy and Asthma and found out that I have Asthma - and probably have for years. (It was 14 years ago the first time it happened - that year I cracked a rib from coughing!) Getting a cold is my trigger, so now I have an Asthma action plan. I'm also doing nebulizer breathing treatments 3-4x/day now until we get through this round of coughing. They also don't mess around with pregnancy and asthma - I have an appt each month until delivery and I have to get a pneumonia vaccine as well. I was a little nervous taking some of the medicine but as they pointed out, it's important for the baby to get enough oxygen. :)
