28 weeks

I can’t believe we’re into the third trimester, even though I feel like I’ve been pregnant for a long time. I’ve been so blessed to have such an easy pregnancy. I’ve been feeling great and having a lot of fun. I’ve been a little more tired this week, but I think that has as much to do with not getting enough exercise as anything else. Maybe fighting a cold too. I’m just now starting to have moments here and there where I feel a little uncomfortable – reaching for things, putting on my shoes, etc. but nothing too bad yet. I went to my first La Leche League meeting last week, which was a lot of fun and will be a fabulous resource.

I’m obviously pregnant now and I get random comments everywhere I go, though I have yet to have a stranger touch my belly. Even people I know haven’t been overly touchy. Maybe as it gets bigger? The baby is moving around like crazy and it’s really funny to watch my belly move.

It’s hard to comprehend sometimes that a whole new person will be entering our world in a couple months. I can’t really even imagine what life will be like with a baby – radically different but amazing, from what I hear. I’m trying hard to soak in these last couple months as a family of two and to fully enjoy the time I have with my husband (who’s wonderful, by the way!) I think I’m ready to be a mom but we’re totally not ready in a practical sense to have this baby. I’m working through the end of May and then I’ll have a little more time to prepare.

So there’s your update filled with many scattered thoughts. Here are the pictures. They’re not the best quality but they showed my belly the best.

You are so beautiful! You look absolutely wonderful!

I never had anyone touch my belly either. Well, I think our friend Cliff did once or twice. But, definitely not strangers.

Looking good, Mama!! :)
I had a stranger *ask* to touch my belly (we were in an elevator too, which made it all the more awkward)... do you say yes or no in that situation?? I just said "umm... okay" since I didn't want to ride the rest of the way in strained silence...

I think being able to sit and WATCH baby move is one of the most amazing things... feeling little feet drag by and watching your belly dance. God is so crazy! :)

Happy 3rd trimester (I've just joined you here in the homestretch!)
