3rd Trimester--the Final Stretch

Well I am 28 weeks 1 day now--3rd trimester is finally here! Yay! I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Being pregnant in the summer is definitely a different experience for me as Audrey and Barrett were both winter babies. I have never been this big in this Alabama heat--and I still have July and August to go!
With Audrey, I wore my wedding rings right up until I got the hospital to deliver her and had to take them off. This pregnancy? I took them off two days ago in exchange for a larger cheap pair. I am definitely swelling with this heat.
I have been spending a lot of this summer in the swimming pool--it is about the only way I can stand to be outside right now. Plus I love the weightless feeling of the pool--gives my poor feet a break!
This has been my hardest pregnancy so far. At least, I do not remember hurting and aching this much with Audrey. And did I mention I went to sleep at 6:30 last night? My second trimester energy is long gone.
At 28 weeks into my pregnancy, I have mastered the art of making it to the bathroom 5-6 times a night completely in the dark. (Now if my husband goes and moves something, he will mess me up!). There have also been a few nights I thought it would just be more practical to put a mattress in the bathroom. Joys of pregnancy!
Cate is getting very strong and I am loving her movements. I can tell she is starting to run out of room though because all of the flips and rolls have turned in to kicks and jabs. (My ribs are paying the prices!).
She loves to take her hand or foot (whichever way she is turned) and just push on my ribs. She enjoys it much more than I do!
Countdown is on--83 days; 12 weeks; a little over two months! Come on September!!!
