How big is baby: The baby is as big as an eggplant!
Feeling: Sore! My feet are always killing me. I have ran two half marathons and a full marathon, and the soreness I am feeling I would associate to how my feet felt after those races. Compression socks have been my only little glimmer of hope, but while they do a lot of the swelling they only help so much for the pain. I guess I just must have really poor circulation because they are numb when I get up in the morning and just sore when I walk on them in general. Even when I am sitting at work at my desk all day, when I get home you would have thought I had been on them ALL DAY. It is by far my biggest complaint about pregnancy so far. BUT I know how lucky I am to have all these aches and pains and the ability to carry this sweet girl, and so I will take it in stride!
Dear Baby Girl,
I am officially in the third trimester and I can't believe how fast the time is going by! Less than 11 weeks to go! Which sounds like forever and like nothing at the same time. You Father and I have been feeling the pressure trying to get everything in order for your arrival. I am feeling you move a little more, and am crossing my fingers your Daddy, who has been very patient, can feel you sometime soon! Dang anterior placenta! haha Anyways, I am about to get started on your Nursery and I am so excited to make a space just for you. Speaking of spaces, your Dad and I bought a new couch and it has an obnoxiously large ottoman. We have dubbed it the Baby's Island, because we decided how cute you would look just chillin' in the center of it, your own island of leather haha We just can't wait for you to get here already!
