So technically the 3rd trimester starts at 26 weeks and about 5 days.  I am rounding up to 27 weeks.

Feels so good to have made it this far already!  Time sure has flown by.

Things are going pretty well over all.  Still having issues sleeping and getting comfortable.  But I guess that is just preparing me for when our little guy comes.

We have our OB appointment tomorrow.  Like always, I have a list of questions for him.  I am hoping that he can tell me what this pain is that I have in my upper stomach area just under my left breast.  Hoping it isn’t anything serious and just a part of the growing process.

I also want to ask him about walking.  My belly gets hard and feels bigger.  I rest and it is better than when we start walking again goes back to being hard.  It isn’t like I am walking fast, but I just want to ask if this is “normal” and nothing to worry about.  I certainly need to keep walking even if it is only a little bit.  I am thinking it might be Braxton-Hicks, but we will see.

So I will report back on what he says.


I got some bra extenders yesterday and let me tell you, what a relief they are!!!  The band on my bra has gotten tighter this past week.  I am sure it is because my ribcage is expending to make room for the baby.  My cup size still seems ok, but it was getting to the point where it was just too uncomfortable to wear.  So I added a bra extender and what a difference!!!  Yay!

I know probably in a couple of more weeks I may have to get a larger cup size, but I wanted to put that off as long as I can. Then as my due date gets even closer I will have to get some nursing bras.


I got my first 2 baby registry items already!  I got a Boppy cover and an infant car seat cover.   Thank you friends, and you know who you are! 🙂

A lot of the posts I am reading on BabyCenter have to do with women having their baby showers this month.  I am still not sure if I am having one.  I didn’t have a wedding shower, so it isn’t the end of the world.  🙂  So many of my friends are spread all over the place, logistically it would be very tough.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Thanks for reading.
