Hello, Third Trimester!

Yep, we are officially in the home stretch! It SO does not feel like it! Well, it may FEEL like it but it doesn't seems like it should be here so soon! The past 7 months have truly FLOWN by! I mean, it doesn't seem like we have been living in our new home THAT long! There are still so many things I was supposed to have done by now, but time has really gotten away! Then before I know it, I am about to have a baby! I am actually truly no joke about to have a baby and honestly he COULD come at any time. He could be early and I could have MY baby in MY arms at any time! THATS CRAZY!!! WHERE DID THIS COME FROM?! I mean, wasn't Christmas just like, last month?! Seems like it....! WOW....

The past couple of weeks have been ugh... I haven't really felt wonderful. UTI has cleared, I am not on antibiotics daily until the end.... The clicking in my back has turned into click with a shooting pain up my back or down my back/leg. Sciatica in the right leg comes and goes and I have started having aching in my left leg! Also, I have concluded that the pain in my abdomen is round ligament or muscle related because it still hurts then I get up from sitting or laying down.... which are my 2 main positions lately and its pretty miserable.... URRGGHH!!!! I just want to feel good and enjoy these last couple months, not be in pain all the time!!!

I know it will all go away as soon as he gets here but, really? I would rather have had morning sickness then this!!!

He has been super active lately though! I think what I am feeling is him flipping and twisting around :) Even if I cant feel him, I can see my belly moving and that is just the coolest thing EVER!!
He is still craving sweets like crazy! I am going to have to put my foot down because this is getting ridiculous!

The nursery is starting to look like a nursery! Today we got his name up on the wall and the shelf up in the closet. I washed all the bassinet parts this week and got it out back together, and washed all the newborn clothes I have (the consignment or hand-me-down stuff) :) Nesting is in full swing I guess! LOL


Chads mom found a huge stash of newborn cloth diapers on Craigslist and brought them over Friday :) A bunch of covers and a ton of fitteds :) We are officially SET on newborn diapers! I hope they will fit him for a while because we don't have many other sizes. I have those, plus the newborn prefolds I purchased a few weeks ago. And we have about 8 one size pocket diapers and 12 small prefolds and a few covers.

We are getting ready to head to the beach next weekend! Cannot wait! :)

Today we went a picked blueberries! we got about 2-1/2 gallons or so! MMMMMMM

The past month!

OMG I have not been in the mood to post anything! Im just being lazy. So bad at this...

Anyway! Where did I leave off?

25 weeks!!!

I don't even remember that far back! I will just go with whats been going on weeks 25, 26, and 27!

First off, the 3rd biggest announcement of the pregnancy!
"SO, does he have a name?"

Yep, Little Man's name will be Jackson Jerome! Nicknamed Jax or Jack :)

We have been busy working on the nursery. Chad got the rocking chair finished, then the dresser/changing table. I have been nesting like crazy! I got the jungle gym bouncer thingy my sis gave me all washed and ready to be stored for 6 months (haha) and the high chair my MIL got us from one of her friends is washed and scrubbed and ready to go! The dresser is FULL already! I need to do some rearranging but all our diapers are in it, as well as blankets and misc stuff. Still trying to figure out how to make it efficient for diaper/ clothes changing. We will get it all figured out. I would have a pic but the room is a disaster area- Chad is in the process of installing a ceiling fan so there are  parts all over the place.
We did score a Peter Rabbit bassinet from one of the facebook online yardsale groups! It is in great condition, just some wear on the base but not bad. I was super excited when my SIL told me it was still available! I contacted the seller immediately and picked it up!
His bed is ready to go, just in case! We went ahead and got a mattress and sheet for it. I am so afraid he is going to come early (for some reason) so I wanted to get the basics ready!
Other than that, Chad wants to wait for the shower before we get anything else! Which, I know we should but UGH I WANNA DECORATE!!!  LOL

He has been so active lately! It feels like a little karate kid in there! Its crazy! I do know that he is still transverse and facing my back though... :( I hope he turns around soon so we can do a 3D ULTRASOUND! 
My last appointment was uneventful. Had the glucose test, which wasn't nearly as bad as I had expected. Apparently all went well with the test since I haven't heard anything. I also (surprise!) have another UTI... which meant another round of antibiotics, which didn't work.... so I went back today for a recheck and they put me on something else. Once I finish this round I go on daily antibiotic for the rest of the pregnancy. Hopefully I don't develop another one. My bladder has been so freakin angry the past 3 weeks! Not even 15 minutes after I go to the bathroom I feel like my bladder is going to split open again! So uncomfortable! I have not been sleeping well because of it either.

Cravings! OMG I am having the worst cravings! This kid has a major sweet tooth, obviously. I have wanted nothing but sweets for the past few weeks, and I am NOT a sweets person. Yeah, I induldge every once in a while (usually around "that time") but can typically control myself when it comes to cravings. That is NOT the case right now! I cannot just ignore these cravings, its crazy!! Like an addiction! I gotta figure out how to get this under control before I blow up!

Other symptoms...
My foot swelling is about the same, I haven't tried the compression hose again, I am just keeping my feet up as much as possible. My sciatic pain in my left leg is gone, but this week has appeared in my right.... and the leg cramps at night are still aweful!

So other than the bladder pain and leg issues, all is well!
