{Third trimester update & Maternity photos}

As I am writing this I have 22 days left before I get to meet the little guy who will become my world, even though he technically already has. When I hit the third trimester it felt like such a relief. Like wow we made it to the last and final weeks! Everyone kept telling me how the last trimester will feel like forever and I don't really agree. Time seems to be flying by and although I am starting to get extremely impatient now, I am only a few weeks away from bringing this baby into the world and that is just so crazy to me. Cody and I kind of laugh because when we think about it, we both almost forgot what I looked like not pregnant. It feels like I've been pregnant forever yet at the same time it's been going by so fast! I still remember standing in that bathroom at our old apartment and crying tears of joy looking down at the positive pregnancy test. I can't believe how many things we have done between that time. 

I've been pretty damn lucky with a very easy pregnancy and I am so thankful for that. The worst things for me have been a suppressed appetite which made it really difficult to eat because nothing sounded good to me, possibly why I never got cravings in my entire pregnancy either.  I was also very fatigued and tired all the time. Second trimester I still struggled with eating however I had so much energy and didn't feel pregnant at all aside from heartburn and constant bathroom trips. Once the third trimester hit at 28 weeks, I felt like it was basically the first trimester all over again. I have constantly been soooo tired literally wanting to fall asleep standing. Heartburn has calmed down a bit towards the end now because my belly has dropped even lower than it was and that was something I didn't even think was possible. It's been really challenging finding a comfy position to lay down and sleeping has become very disruptive. I've carried low my entire pregnancy but towards the end now I kind of just laugh looking at my stomach in the mirror. I kept asking myself, how can it possibly get any bigger? Well it does. This little boy may not be so little after all. Cody and I were both 8 lb something babies and our doctor said that our baby would probably be somewhere in that area as well if he arrives on his due date, July 3rd. 

During this last trimester Cody and I had our maternity photos scheduled, we finished up Roman's nursery, and we also had a baby shower! We had so much fun celebrating with our family and friends. He was spoiled with tons of goodies and now has so many books, stuffed animals, and clothing! We are so thankful for everyone who came to the shower and shared this happiness with us. The shower was something I looked forward to for months because there is nothing better than being surrounded by the people you love.  Nesting has definitely kicked in for me and I've been cleaning and organizing everything! I also have my hospital bag packed and ready to go since I have a feeling this boy may come a little before his due date. I asked some of  you guys who follow me on instagram to take a vote if you think baby will come early and more than half of you voted yes, you think so too! Now we wait and see if we were right!
