my pregnancy journey

random thoughts from a first time mom

week 31

third trimester woes

i finally hit the third trimester woes...since the first tri, i really didn't have anything major to complain about (except for the crappy cough), but week 31 hit and boy am i now uncomfortable. all of my stomach and side muscles constantly ache like i've just done 2 hours of a core workout (except i haven't!), making moving and sleeping (and even breathing) difficult. i'm also getting tired easily again. anything physical takes so much more energy than before. my feet and lower back hurt all. the. time. i wake up in the middle of the night with my side and hips aching so bad that i can't fall back asleep. my body is just not used to this big load of weight and it's not super fun. ok, i'm done with the ranting and complaining...  

on a more positive note...

i washed baby lev's newborn - 3 month wardrobe this week. i have never been more excited to do laundry in my life! i still can't believe how tiny he will be.   

our baby BOY is the size of a pineapple!!!!

baby clothes!

belly laughs

people say the weirdest things to pregnant women. yesterday at work, our safety guy sees me and exclaims, "wow, you just keep getting bigger and bigger!" um, yeah…that's generally what happens when you're GROWING a human in your uterus. i just wish i was quick enough to say what i was thinking out loud :)
