I didn’t get maternity pictures with the twins. {regret} this time around I wanted some classic photos taken. My sister did an amazing job and I’m glad she has recently gotten into this whole photography thing.

Here is my third trimester update. I am currently 37 weeks and 5 days. I have never been pregnant this long… I’m ready to get things rolling but I feel blessed to be where I am right now. I feel good and I know this babe will come on its own time. Well.. that is until October 10th then he/she is being evicted.

Gender?

No Idea. Brent, Tanner and I all guess boy! Baylee is of course going all girl on it.

Belly Button?

Gone. Really, it is.

Rings?

On.

Stretch Marks?

I have little tiny white ones around my non-existent belly button. I had them with the twins and they faded so I am hopeful that these do the same.

Maternity Clothes?

Nope. I haven’t had to wear or buy any maternity clothes this pregnancy. I probably could of and not of stretched out the majority of my t shirts and tanks.. I am however looking forward to buying new clothes afterwards. Winking smile

Movement?

Yes, Baby is active throughout the majority of the day now. Pokes and pushes out mostly at night while I’m laying on my left side.

Weight Gain?

At my last Doctor appointment I had gained 7pounds so far this pregnancy! However, I did gain 20 lbs.. yes 20.. before I found out I was pregnant, thanks to clomid and all that infertility fun. Funny thing, I weigh the same as I did when I was pregnant with the twins at the same time. Go figure.. I guess if your body has done this once.. its going to do the same thing.

Symptoms

  • FATIGUE. I sort of feel like I’m back in my first trimester. I need a nap almost everyday but I am lucky if I get the chance.
  • Groin pressure? Is that a symptom? I did a run on Friday and have major pressure down there..

Cravings

My cravings have been subtle this pregnancy. Lately, I have been leaning more towards carbs than anything else. Today I did however pick up some random items post an hour cardio session.

Gummy worms and chocolate milk.

Black forest gummy worms are the best. Its made with “real fruit juice” so its practically a fruit right?

Workouts

I am still working out daily. Even if I’m tired I get through it. Some days I really just don’t want to lift one more pound than what I am carrying so I opt for some light cardio on the arc trainer or spin bike.

Or walking out with the family.

The leaves are starting to change in a few areas and it is my favorite time of year to be out on the trails.

I am loving this pregnancy and I am excite d to just meet this babe.
