Third Trimester! Hooray!

I'm in the third trimester now...finally! 12 more weeks to go before my due date on Christmas Eve. 12 Looonnnnnggg weeks. I'm really exhausted these days and feel somewhat handicapped. I do a little bit and then I need to rest - a lot! Part of the joys of being this pregnant coupled with pregnancy induced high blood pressure. But, thankfully we haven't crossed into preeclampsia territory this time and that's what I'm trying to avoid.

I know that I haven't been blogging lately but I have been trying to keep up with some blog reading. I'm slow but I'm trying! I spend most of my days taking care of DD and cleaning up her mess. I'm also trying to finish getting the house settled. It's been just over a month since we moved in. We're about 80% there. It takes all of my energy during the day to take care of DD, cooking, laundry, and to maintain the rooms we've already finished. I can't do much more than that. Some days I don't even get that far! So, my seriously darling Husband has been working on the rest of it on the weekends. He just gave the dogs a bath for me and he's working on my laundry room right now. Isn't he FAB?!

Now, all that is left is the guest bedroom. We keep the door closed because we're dreading dealing with that mess! That's where we've thrown all of the boxes and stuff that we don't know what to do with. Lots of trips to the Goodwill when we start on that room! But, it has to get done before the baby gets here. We're going to have lots of house guests and I need to make sure they have somewhere to sleep!

I've gained about 16 lbs or so at this point though I would swear that I've gained 100 lbs. I feel so huge right now. Some of my pregnancy shirts are getting to the point where they barely cover my belly. LOL Oh, well...12 more weeks, 12 more weeks. I think that I'm a lot less patient with this pregnancy even though I'm not nearly as prepared as I was with my first baby. Well, at least I've definately entered the cranky stage. Be careful what you say to me, or don't say, the way you look at me, etc. You never know when I'm going to snap! LOL I'm a pleasure to live with I'm sure. ;)

Hope you are all doing well friends. There is so much craziness and uncertainty in the world right now. Remember to keep your focus on what's important in life and to love and help one another. God Bless!


  1. I hope your pregnancy continues to go smoothly! miss you!

  2. Glad to hear things are going well!! If there is ever a time where it;s OK to be cranky it's let it all out girl! {haha} Hope you have a great week!! = )

  3. Now the fun begins, oh the last 12 weeks, sounds like you are doing great. And I agree with SSM, fire away!

  4. Yay! How wonderful to hear things are going so well for you and the baby. I'm sorry about your B/P. I have heard it is higher for pregnant women. I'm sure it will return to normal very soon.

    Thanks for your sweet visit. I do feel great these days! *smiles*

    ~Many Blessings, ~Melissa :)
