Third Trimester Bumpdate – Weeks 32-36

We are in the home stretch! It feels like my due date may never come at this point. I’m TIRED. But, I’m also trying to soak in every little bit of these last few weeks. As much as I’m ready for him to be here I’ve really loved being pregnant and feeling him wiggle inside of me. As I get closer to the end, I’m getting more and more uncomfortable and these pictures are getting significantly less fun BUT I really have enjoyed this experience!!! I honestly cannot even remember what its like to not be pregnant. Its going to be an adjustment! The last 9 months have been some of the hardest but most exciting and special of my life. Its only the beginning!!!

 

However, I really won’t be sad when I don’t have to take these pictures anymore. I’m glad I have been though because its fun to look back.

Questions That I’m Frequently Asked:

What’s in my hospital bag??

I did a full post on that here. I do plan to do a follow up post afterwards to let you all know what I used and what I actually didn’t find to be helpful.

What’s his name?

You all will find out soon enough! We purchased a hat from Knots Baby and will announce it when he’s born. I’ve linked the hat below. There are many different styles and designs. SO cute!

What have you been doing for aches and pains?

Complaining! ha! just kidding kinda.. but I stretch and suck it up. The end is near!! I do have a heating pad that I occasionally use and Andy gives me a lot of foot massages.

Biggest Surprise??

I didn’t expect that the first trimester nausea would come back. I’ve had a relatively easy pregnancy until the third trimester. Lately I’ve been really nauseous no matter what. That’s what has made these last few weeks really difficult. My nausea has actually been much worse in the third trimester than it was the in the first. I really cant wait to eat normally again. I love food!!! just not so much lately.

Hopefully we don’t have too many more of these left!!

Nursery Reveal coming very soon!

XO,

Britt
