once again doubling up on posts for this little one...poor baby!
27 weeks found us hot and humid here in new england. as much as this winter dragged on and on and we were all desperate for summer weather, i really would prefer a break in the humidity! i guess the grass is always greener, eh?
the week was busy attending another wedding, this time in maine. instead of just going up for the wedding day itself, we spent the weekend with my in-laws in between the wedding celebrations. ian really enjoyed the whole weekend, as did hubby and i. it was fun to see some friends from college who we haven't seen in a long time, as well as enjoying a yummy breakfast out with family on sunday morning.
this most recent week has brought the start of my third trimester! i cannot believe we are in the home stretch already. we did the lovely glucose test yesterday and while it was not the best appointment in the world (coupled with a cantankerous-needing-a-nap toddler), i haven't heard anything back yet. usually they would have called by now if i failed the one hour test, so i'm hoping my phone stays quiet for the rest of the afternoon :)
i'm excited to say that i'm still exercising and running. i have another race next weekend in rockport, ma and i'm really looking forward to it. many of the mums i run with have been training for the half marathon race the same day and i'm slightly jealous that i'm not able to join them. it was my goal to run a half this summer, obviously prior to finding out i was expecting, and so now i'm just sticking to the 5k. it will be fun all the same :)
dear little one,
happy third trimester baby! we've made it to the final stretch...even though that final stretch is twelve weeks long ;) you are now about 15 inches long and just over two pounds...as big as an eggplant. i love feeling your kicks getting stronger. sometimes my tummy will all of a sudden leap to the left or right...it's incredible to think how much power you have in your still tiny arms and legs!
your big brother is starting to understand a bit more about you, i think. he frequently talks about babies, points them out in stores or on walks and gives you hugs and kisses before bed and throughout the day :) it is very sweet and i cannot wait for you two to meet in person.
tomorrow your daddy and i are going away to celebrate our seventh wedding anniversary! it is the first time we will have left ian with someone else overnight and although i'm excited for the time, i'm nervous about leaving him. you, little one, get to tag along for the fun. at least you are still remarkably easier to take care of, even if i have to choose carefully off the menu and ignore the wine list :p
we love you, little one. stay safe and keep growing!
