Hello Trimester 3

9 Dec

Here we go, trimester 3. 27 weeks.

As I was moaning about the overall feeling that the baby’s too big and my lower abdomen feels too stretched already, hubby suggested I might simply need the pregnancy belt. It worked. Indeed, it wasn’t the baby getting too big – but getting too heavy. During the day, the high-waist pants or leggings provide some support for the belly, but at home I wear my usual pj’s – so the belly feels heavy.

The baby is super active. Timothy never woke me up (while in utero, that is :)) – but I think this one wakes me up. I sometimes wake up and the baby is boogie-woogying. Which makes me think that that’s what’s waking me up – what else?

Other than that, nothing to report. Feeling ok, not too tired (nothing like what I experienced at 2-4 months), still fairly comfortable in bed – although started using the pillow for between my knees.

Now that the delivery date is less that 3 months away, it feels very real. I am finally imagining having another baby – not having Timothy yet again. I am realizing it’s going to be another baby, different from Timothy, in addition to Timothy.

I am starting to wonder, muse, plan. I am starting to think about the year off.

So my mindset is finally shifting.

Gladly, the fears aren’t surfacing – the will I love him as much fears, the will the baby be okay fears, so far so good – I am just paddling along, peacefully.

    I’m starting to imagine another baby, a different baby too. It’s sooooo weird to think about.

      I know! The very idea is so bizarre.
