It’s here! It’s here! And it hit me like a smack in the face. In fact, I didn’t even realize that I’m *in* my third trimester until I got a BabyCenter email telling me. Oops?
The beginning of the last trimester is a tad bit bittersweet. Mostly because I’m certain this is our last baby. So this is the final last trimester — and the final last of everything from here on out.
Nausea / Morning Sickness.
The sickness has mostly subsided. I do still get nauseous if I forget to eat in the morning or if I don’t snack throughout the afternoon; but other than that, it’s over! Thank goodness!
Cravings + Aversions.
My craving of beans seems to have subsided some, but it’s been replaced with fish. Not just any fish — specifically, fried fish — with loads and loads of tartar sauce. I suppose it’s (again) not the worst craving to have. I’m not over-indulging in my fried fish craving, but I’m caving on occasion. Other than that, no real aversions.
Life with two littles.
This pregnancy has certainly been less dramatic than my two others. I’m thinking it’s because I just don’t have time to slow down and pay attention to every little symptom I’m having. Thanks to having the two small people to take care of, I just haven’t given this pregnancy a lot of thought.
Exhaustion + Activity.
I. am. so. tired! The fatigue definitely didn’t end in the second trimester. And it doesn’t seem like it’s going to be letting up anytime soon.
So I’m taking (almost) daily naps in the afternoons. And I’m still waking up exhausted and falling asleep around 8:30PM nearly every night.
But I’m also really active. I mean, besides chasing my own two kids around; I’m also still chasing around a gazillion other kids at work.
And I’m still teaching cycling at the Y and regularly taking other classes (like zumba!). I think it’s helping me stay extra active. Ha.
I know I said that we weren’t finding out the gender. Buuuut… we did.
I know, I know! I can’t believe we did!
But this means that a gender reveal is coming very, very, soon! So stay tuned!
– I took my glucose test last week. I haven’t heard the results yet, and, even though I’ve never had any issues with gestational diabetes, I get nervous every single time I have to drink that orange drink! Fingers crossed!
– We bit the bullet and bought a minivan! It was inevitable — I know. But it all happened so quickly. We found the right minivan while I was sick with the flu (we took two kids car shopping while I was sick with a fever and the flu… super fun).
– I am down to bi-weekly appointments with my OBGYN. It’s weird to think that. So so weird. How is it here already!?
With all this being said, the next 11 weeks are going to fly by. I’ll update a bit more regularly from here on out 😉 But I’d love to hear your thoughts for our tie-breaker-baby — do you think baby # 3 is a BOY or a GIRL?!
