Today marks our entrance into the third and last trimester! We're in the home stretch, and I can't believe that we only have three short months until we meet this little guy. The last 6 months have raced by, and with the Holidays coming up I know that this last little stretch will go by even faster!
At our appointment today we met with Cassie, the other midwife that works with our midwife Lori. They trade weeks on-call so depending on when our little man makes his entrance into the world, we will have one or the other of these knowledgeable and supportive women. His heartbeat was good and strong, and everything is right on track!
I've been feeling surprisingly well. This pregnancy, and Isabel's are almost exactly flip-flopped. I felt great for the first half of Isabel's pregnancy, but this this little guy I was sick and miserable. With Isabel I started to have back pain starting around 20 weeks which only got worse as the pregnancy progressed. Around 20 weeks my back and hip pain went away this time and I've been feeling great! I hope that this feeling good thing lasts the rest of the way! Sleeping at night is a bit sketchy of course, but that is to be expected. I'll take some tossing and turning at night, if I feel pretty good during the day.
