Well, my friends, we're 12 weeks away from my due date, and 7 weeks away from my personal goal of being completely ready to go for baby girl's arrival, and we still have a LOT to do. I'm pretty sure we can meet my goal especially since I will be finished with exams in less than 2 weeks - and then I can devote a lot more time to getting her nursery ready, buying the rest of the necessities, etc.
Baby girl is still being compared to the size of a large eggplant. She now can open and close her eyes. She also has become a moving maniac in my belly (although she has been a maniac since I first started feeling her at 17 weeks) - but now because she's so much bigger, my belly rolls and shifts whenever she does.
In terms of this mama here - I'm having trouble making it through a full day without a short nap. Also, I have become increasingly uncomfortable over the last week. I'm having more difficulty maneuvering my body, getting up and down from the couch, and changing positions in bed. I also am noticing that I get very antsy when I've been in the same position (sitting or laying down) for too long, so I'm constantly trying to shift to find a better position. I'm not sure if this is a little bit early to be feeling uncomfortable - but I am so who knows.
It's amazing how a little fresh air and quick walk can help me though. On nice days, I try to get outside for a 30-45 minute walk. I love working on Tessa's training while we walk, and otherwise I just lift my head, listen to the birds chirping, and breathe.
28 Week Pictures - I have gotten really big - does this seem big for 28 weeks?!
