I guess this isn't really a good belly picture but I'm just glad I remembered to take a picture. So now I'm starting to countdown; although, ten weeks to go still sounds like a long time. I've taken my glucose test which came back negative, received my rogam shot, and had one last ultrasound of the baby. The ultrasound picture was cute even though the umbilical cord was in front of her face. I could see her sweet little fingers next to her mouth. They confirmed that the baby is a girl, she weighs 3 lbs (50%ile), and is head down. I definitely am feeling like I'm in the 3rd trimester now. My lower back, I think it's actually my butt hurts constantly, especially when I walk. It feels like the ligaments/tendons are very loose. Walking up the stairs takes the wind out of me, sleeping is more difficult, bending over to get something takes some strategy, usually asking one of my kids or picking it up with my feet if possible. I'm trying to enjoy this pregnancy as it very well could be my last. Regardless of being uncomfortable, I'm (and all of us) are so excited for this girl's arrival. I've painted her room, bought gear, bought diapers and some clothes I couldn't resist, my mom has a flight to come for a few weeks, and just waiting to greet her. I love feeling her movement and anticipating what she will look like and the first time I hold her in my arms. I'm can't wait to see what she looks like in color and not the black and white ultrasound pictures. 30 weeks, 10 to go, and 1 happy mama.
