Big Blob

Wow, it has been a long time since I’ve blogged about my journey. I suppose a lot of it had to do with the fact that pregnancy took away a lot of my energy, and I’ve been to tired and lazy to write after I come home from work. Sorry friends!

Well, I’m in my third trimester now. Officially, there are 9 weeks and 3 more days to go before the due date.

I have to say, this third trimester is challenging. I feel like a huge blob. I have not gained that much weight (15 lbs), but my uterus is so high up right now – it is the culprit in me feeling this way. My stomach, intestines, lungs, and every other organ are all squished towards the top of my body – making me feel out of breath, heavy, and like I’m going to pop any moment. The heartburn is back (terrible!), the feet are getting more swollen, the back hurts, and I’m exhausted all the time.

It doesn’t sound fun, but I am willing to endure all of this for the gift that God is giving me at the end of this suffering – my baby girl Abigail.

By the way, on Monday my midwife said that Abigail has turned around and is now laying head down. I’m so excited, because now we can do the 4D ultrasound that we’ve been waiting for. I’ve scheduled it for next week.

Nursery: Done (actually, waiting for curtains)
Name: Picked out (Abigail Katerina Kalyandra)
Shopping for baby items: Waiting until after my baby shower (it’s very hard to wait – I LOVE shopping!)

What am I missing?

  1. You're missing a picture!! I wanna see that baby belly. 🙂 I am sorry you're having a tough 3rd trimester. Just try to remember to take those queues from your body and rest rest rest. Short naps after work (or during sometimes) were how I made it through some days. I am so excited for you!
