As I enter my last week before I officially start my third trimester, I can't help but think "Wait...there's more?!?" I'm starting to think they should have spelled the third one 'try-mester' because it hasn't even started and I'm already over it!
I feel like I have had a pretty amazing pregnancy. While I did have some Morning Sickness, it lasted only 2 weeks and there was no vomit involved. I have a big belly but have stayed relatively the same size everywhere else. I haven't had any weird cravings and very little food aversions. BUT I am very ready to be done being pregnant. I'm so ready for an actual, good night of sleep where I'm not up every 3 hours to pee or eat. I'm ready to fit back into my old jeans. I'm VERY ready to be able to see anything below my belly!
There's a lot the Hubs and I still have to complete, like the nursery, but we've been working really hard to get it done. Our goal is to have no baby related things to accomplish a whole month before the baby is due. That way we can focus on each other and the last couple weeks of our family the way it is before we add Baby into the mix. Getting to that point seems forever away though. I don't know how I'm going to make it another 3 months of being pregnant! I just can't fathom getting any physically larger and being able to walk a mile without feeling like my ankles are broken would be nice. I love feeling Baby moving around in my belly but I'm so ready to snuggle Baby outside of my womb! It's hard to be patient about such an amazing thing that you get to keep - FOREVER! It's like having Christmas, Hannukah, and your Birthday rolled into one, knowing the kick ass present you're going to get, and then having wait almost a year to get it. I WANT IT NOW!!!
The Hubs was a champ and did all the painting in the nursery since I wasn't able to. I'm trying to keep a sunny disposition despite feeling very round and very ready to meet Baby!
I'm going to try and stay focused on being a family of three before Baby comes along. I'm going to try and be thankful for how amazing Baby has been to me and my body thus far. I'm going to focus on getting through each day knowing that it's one day closer to meeting the love of my life. But mamas - I wanna know how you made it through your last Trimester? Am I being unrealistic or were any of you ready for it to be over by 6 months?
