Maternity Style - Third Trimester

If second trimester is when things started to feel real, then the third trimester is when things started to feel terrifying!  Just knowing people who have had babies really early, I was so nervous that this kid could show up at any time.  And we were not ready for him yet!  And then I was very ready for him, and became impatient.   Pretty typical, I suspect.

A few notable things:
  • Week 29-34: weekly baby class at the hospital, which simultaneously made me feel more and less prepared to be a mother.
  • Weeks 33, 35, 36:  Baby showers!
  • Week 35-40:  Weekly doctor's appointments.
  • Week 37:  I am relieved to make it past the "early" stage, so now I'm ready for baby to show up whenever.  Of course, he doesn't.  
  • Week 40:  Due date comes and goes, but baby isn't going anywhere.  
So now I'm sitting on the couch, typing one-handed as I snuggle my sweet 2.5 week old baby, and pregnancy seems like a very distant memory.  Good thing I have pictures to remind me!


  1. I love reading your recaps.

  2. I'm impressed with your ability to continue playing with your style throughout your pregnancy. Congratulations on your new bundle of joy :)
