3rd Trimester

28 weeks...we have started the 3rd trimester!! That means Lily is almost here.

I have probably said this with every monthly update, but I cannot believe how fast the time has gone. And I know with Thanksgiving only 2 weeks away and then Christmas it is going to seem even faster. This time of year always goes so fast...I am determined to try and slow down to enjoy every minute. I want to take in all the Holiday fun with Jake since this is his last as an only child. I also want to take in every minute of this pregnancy(especially since it seems this could be the last). I want to remember every kick, every feeling, & even every discomfort.

My goal is to have her room finished by Thanksgiving. With last weeks painting and this weeks furniture delivery it looks like we will accomplish that goal. This will definitely help in being able to enjoy this season and not have to worry about getting everything finished in time for Lily to be here.

Are you wondering about her name? If we aren't friends on facebook you may have missed the official announcement. By a very small 1 vote we have a name winner....LILY KATE is our baby girl's name. As I have said she has been Lily for a long time, but we weren't sure about spelling or middle name.

Everything is going great with only a few discomforts. The biggest being heart burn. I had some heart burn with Jake, but it has been terrible this time. Over the last couple weeks it seems no matter what I eat, or drink I am likely to get heart burn. I have to say I am so glad that the only time I get heart burn is when I am pregnant...not sure how people deal with it all the time. It is so painful!!!

She is moving a lot, but already seems to be in a schedule. She moves a little in the morning when I first get up. I occasionally feel her throughout the day. Then just as it has been for a while she moves a whole bunch in the evening. I am excited to go to my Dr. appointment on Friday. I will get another ultrasound and will be able to see how she is positioned. At my last appointment her head was on my right side and butt was on my left, going all the across my belly. I can't tell if she has moved to be head down...I feel her moving all over my belly making it hard to tell which is what moving.

My wonderful best friend is hosting a baby shower for us this weekend. I am so excited to celebrate our sweet girl with our family & friends. I am sure I will have pictures to share from then.

Am I missing anything? Do you have any questions about this pregnancy?
