Goodbye 2nd Trimester...Welcome 3rd!

Time is flying by. I'm officially in the 3rd trimester and less than 3 months Baby Natasha will be here! I am 28 weeks pregnant and still feeling pretty good. We had our doctor's appointment today and the good news is that I passed my diabetes test! However, I gained a little too much weight since my last appointment. I blame it on the holidays and Baby Natasha could have had a growth spurt! We have another appointment in two weeks, so hopefully I can keep my weight gain under control. Other than that, I'm measuring right on track and Baby Natasha's heartbeat is strong.

According to, Baby Natasha's lungs are mature enough, that if born right now, she would have a pretty good chance of surviving (with medical intervention). But we want her to stay put and bake a while longer and put on some fat so her wrinkly skin will smooth out. Baby Natasha is kicking and boxing me everyday and I love it! She is really active after I eat and when I'm completely relaxed in bed at night. After lunch today, I saw the right side of my belly move. It was a big movement. I had Zac watch to see if she would do it again, but sure enough she was done. I'm still trying to figure out how she is positioned in the womb because all of her movements have been below my belly button. She must be in a pretty comfortable spot and doesn't feel the need to move yet.

This weekend is my friend Jackie's baby shower. I'm looking forward to seeing her and celebrating the upcoming arrival of Baby Kyra (Baby Natasha's BFF). My last day of work will be January 29th! I'll be sad to go, but I'm looking forward to staying at home with Baby Natasha. Then I will have my shower in March and after that, I will have my work cut out for me to get her nursery complete. Many things to look forward too! Stay tuned for more...

  1. I love the shot looking down at your feet! You can say goodbye pretty soon to that view - those feet will be gone before you know it! Enjoy the kicks!
