Kryptonite Baby

(26 weeks)
November 10 (27 Weeks)
November 16 (28 Weeks)

I've made it to the third trimester.  Hurray!  I hope this last stretch goes by fast!  I think with Thanksgiving this week and Christmas soon after will make time fly.  Then it's just January and a little bit of February until I get to meet my baby boy.  Seems so strange, and so so exciting!

I had my glucose test and doctor's appointment last week.  I'm not sure when I'll get the results back, but everything seemed to go well.  Baby has been extra wiggly lately and he seems to be growing right on track.  I gained 4 pounds since my last appointment, which brings my total to about 11.  I almost weight as much as Jensen already! I think I'll pass him before baby comes, which I don't like the idea of.  He's just too skinny.

I'm slowly starting to move my way into uncomfortable pregnant lady from cute belly lady who feels good and isn't too tired.  I feel tired all the time, but that's probably because I don't go to bed early enough and I get up early for work.  I am also starting to feel pretty big, but I'm sure in a couple months I'll look at photos and laugh that I ever thought this was big.  I have also been going to the bathroom more and more often.  Luckily I rarely wake up in the middle of the night needing to go.  I am grateful for that.

Lately my lower back has been hurting quite a bit.  I think I need to get a lower back support thing for my chair at work, and a prenatal massage ;).  I have had some heartburn too, but nothing too bad yet.  This little baby seems to want to escape too.  There's one spot in my stomach he constantly kicks or punches so hard!  Occasionally he does it so hard it hurts.  Sometimes I feel like the little baby growing inside me is my kryptonite.  If you know me you know I'm not an exerciser at all, but little baby has made my leg muscles pretty much non existent.  Going up and down stairs is infinitely more difficult now.  Not just because I have a belly to carry along with me, but because my muscles themselves feel so weak.

Sorry if that seemed like a lot of complaining.  I'm really not trying to complain.  Overall I feel really good and am still amazed Jensen and I are going to have a baby. It sometimes feels like this is all a dream and I'll wake up with no belly or kicking baby.

Last week I was craving Arby's (gross? probably) and ice cream. I'm not sure if that's baby cravings or just Vivian cravings though. I'm sure the ice cream is just me :)  When I suggested getting ice cream to Jensen he wanted some as bad as I did.
