The 3rd trimester so far...

I have been gone a while, I know, and I'm sorry! Things are just a bit busy and it's hard to make time to blog. I've also been extremely tired again, like I was in the first trimester! It makes sense since I am carrying around a lot of extra weight these days. I would say I had a few days last week where I was really uncomfortable. Fortunately it's not every day... yet.

My third trimester has been going well so far, aside from a few hiccups. I had a little bit of spotting that sent me in to the midwife about 2 weeks ago, completely freaked out. It turned out to probably be related to a low-lying placenta. I had an ultrasound a couple of days ago, and the low-lying placenta they found at 19 weeks is still low. Apparently this can cause spotting. The good news? Baby girl looks completely healthy and happy! I have to go back in a few weeks to see if the placenta has moved up at all. If it doesn't move up I am looking at a c-section delivery, so please send your awesome placenta moving up thoughts my way :)

The nursery is pretty much completed. All we have left to do is hang a shelf that my grandfather made, we've been putting it off because it involves using a stud finder and a drill, and neither of us is particularly handy. I mean, we'll get it done, but it's not something we're keen to do. After we get the shelf hung I will definitely take a bunch of photos and have a reveal here on the blog!

For now, here's a recap of my growing bump! I definitely noticed a HUGE increase from 29 to 30 weeks. Holy cow!

You look great, Sarah...blossoming and happy. I remember the third tri tired well. My doc told me that it was my body's way of preparing and that I needed to slow down and rest.

Sending "placenta move up" vibes your way, sweetheart. You're in the final stretch - my, how time has flown. So excited for you!

Hope your placenta moves up! My word your bump has grown. Would've said you were having a boy as you're all front.
