Third Trimester weeks 27-30.

I don't know about others, but I personally was super excited to hit 30 weeks! I feel like that is a big milestone! At first I felt like nothing had really happened to write about in the last weeks, but actually quite a bit happened! Week 27's picture was taken in Branson on our family weekend trip, which was really fun. Week 28 was taken on the day I headed up to Minneapolis and got to see some college friends and go to my old roommate's baby shower. I also had my second and third baby showers in there, which was a huge huge blessing and so much fun!

Pregnancy wise, I have been doing pretty well, which I am so thankful for. I am still working full time, so I am really grateful to be feeling so well. I am starting to get pretty tired after working a 10 hour day full of kids, but it's okay. My feet have still been swollen (they basically are constantly swollen now), but it's gone down since the humidity hasn't been too bad recently. It's actually been a super nice summer to be pregnant- not too hot or humid! My back has been hurting, which isn't fun but it's tolerable. Baby is also pushing into my ribs a lot, and I have been feeling much harder kicks now! I also feel like I have been more emotional recently. There are also a couple other minor things that I would be happy to discuss with pregnant friends, but don't need to announce publicly. :)

Thankfully all my doctor appointments have been pretty good also. They say I am measuring right on track and baby is doing great, so that's wonderful news! The only hiccups were that my hemoglobin levels were low, so I have been taking an iron supplement each day to raise that. I also failed the initial glucose screening test (where they test for gestational diabetes), so then I had to go in for a three hour test where they drew my blood four times to test further, but thankfully I passed that and don't have diabetes!

I feel like I have recently been getting bigger (obviously), and since I hit 30 weeks I am getting really anxious to meet this little one!
