I'm 29 weeks and officially in my third trimester! (This picture was taken on Christmas at 27 weeks.) I'm so excited for this milestone, but I've also been hit hard with some challenging new symptoms. I've been doing really well with exercising daily and trying to keep my nutrition in check, however as soon as I hit the last trimester I've slowed down considerably due to back and lower abdomen pain. It's been so bad some days that I can hardly walk let alone try to exercise.
This has been pretty hard on me as I've had great plans to stay active and strong right up until delivery, but I've had to scale back considerably lately. I'm trying to keep my spirits up and do what I can when I feel up too it, but it's hard to face the reality of not being as strong as I'd like. My doctor did say that some of this pain is probably from baby being head down which is great!
With my previous pregnancy I remember hitting a wall around 32 weeks and I got pretty depressed and had a really hard time during my last few months so I'm determined to keep going and not let that happen this time around!
Anyway, now that Christmas is over I'm starting to focus on getting the nursery ready and sorting out some projects for my sweet little girl! We moved Walker into his new room a few nights ago and things have gone great. He's still in a crib so it really wasn't much of a transition, just a new room. We show him pictures of the ultrasounds and tell him, "That's sissy!" and he pats and kisses my belly and says "Sissy!" It's so adorable!
Can't wait to post some upcoming projects that I have planned for the new baby. Only 11 weeks to go so I'd better get started! :)
