So far the third trimester has been an experience. Some say that the third trimester is much worse than the first, which I don't know if I agree with yet. Although I am far from comfortable, I was really sick during the first trimester so not being nauseous and being able to eat the foods I want have been nice. Although, with 2 months left I am sure I will be getting far more uncomfortable and unhappy soon.
This will be the second time this pregnancy that I have gotten something "rare." Apparently only 20% of pregnant women get varicose veins, and I was one of them. Also only 10% of pregnant women get PUPP, and I got that too in the first trimester. PUPP is in short a pink, itchy rash that develops on your belly and chest. Although I know I am very lucky to have not gotten gestational diabetes or pre-ecclampsia I still think this pregnancy is harder than I had expected it to be! I thought I was going to be a fertility goddess, a happy Buddha, but instead I'm just a sick, tired, Humpty Dumpty.
Not that I am not excited for little girl's arrival. I am very excited to meet my baby and start taking care of her. Joey and I are getting ready by starting to wash all her things, cleaning the house and getting last minute things together. We have boxes of baby things that are reedy to be assembled, such as the high chair, pack and play, and an entertainment station for the baby. I still have one more baby shower this upcoming Sunday, which I am so excited for, and then Joey and I will begin to shop for necessities such as diapers and wipes.
Baby Wagner's room is complete now, actually overflowing will baby things that we aren't sure what to do with yet. Here are some recent pictures, although not very exciting!
Her letters that we made her are hung up, but I blurred them out not to spoil the surprise of her name!
Her infant seat is all set up and ready for November!
I'm loving the diaper caddy.
That's it for now, more next week after my second baby shower and doctor's appointment!
