Well, hello 3rd tri...

I know I say this over and over again, but really?  Can you believe it?  Can you believe that I'm in 3rd tri already?  Because I sure can't.

Every week when I take my belly picture, I email it to myself from my phone.  And every week I put in the wrong subject for how far along I am... I think I put "22w" this time and I'm all "wait a second, that's not right, is it?"  I don't know if it's denial or just utter disbelief. {Or, ya know... stupidity.} 

Whatever it is, I am shocked about it.

So yeah, on Halloween day, I entered into the elusive 3rd trimester.  And hopefully my last trimester of ever being pregnant too! {What? I'm serious this time.}  Here's a belly pic my sister took before heading out to Carter's school parade and class party...
And my standard picture...
My mom thinks that shirt is super creepy {which I guess is the point, right?} but I think it's kinda cute.  I know I got a lot of compliments on it so it must not have been all that bad.

Pregnancy: 27 weeks  

Weight Gain: 22 pounds {Well crap, another big jump in weight.  Stupid Halloween candy. I honestly fear for my weight gain this pregnancy... I also have Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years ... with a wedding on NYE... to look forward too before I deliver.  Yeah, this isn't going to end well for me.}

Sleep: So tired, all the time.  And I wanted to stab Benjamin Franklin yesterday.  So what, the guy created electricity and is a pillar of our society, especially in Philadelphia. Pfft, big deal.  It's HIS fault my kids were up at 5:30am on a Sunday morning.  #longestdayever
Gender: It's a GIRL!  {Check out the reveal post.}

Name: Emerson Mae {Check out my original name post here and the reveal post here.}

Feeling: Pretty good!  Still having dizzy spells here and there, but I've been so busy that I haven't really had time to think about how I'm feeling, honestly.

I am really looking forward to my ultrasound at MFM this Friday.  Can't wait to see baby girl again and also check how she and my cervix are both progressing.  Hoping it's still at least a 3 right now! 
{My cervix measured a 2.7 at 18 weeks and a 3.0 at 19 weeks... we need it to be above a 2.5 at the very least, but above a 3.0 is preferable!}

Health:  BP looked pretty good at my appointment on Friday.  I also had my 2nd glucose test... I really hate that crap.  I don't necessarily think the drink tastes all that bad {don't get me wrong, I don't think it tastes GOOD either} but I just hate the way it makes me feel for the rest of the day. So blah.
Andplusalso?  Probably not the best idea to schedule the GTT for the morning after Halloween. I'm just saying.  My results don't seem very promising. {I should know by tomorrow if I passed.}

Movement: Homegirl be cray cray.

Belly: Measuring 3 weeks ahead as of my appt on Friday.  I'm sure we're well on our way to measuring 5-6 weeks ahead really soon. NBD.
For reference, here are my side-by-side weekly belly pics with Reid and my first 20 weeks with Emmie Mae. 

Next Appointment: Ultrasound: this Friday, November 8th at 28w1d. OB Appointment: Friday, November 15th at 29w1d.

So funny, from the pic of you facing the camera I thought, well that isn't a typical jenny preggo belly! Then you did your side view….there's that perfect jenny bump! You look ADORABLE mama, and I love the creepy baby shirt! I don't even "know" you and can't believe you're in 3rd tri. I mean, you had Reid like 3 weeks ago. Seriously. ~Jenn
