3rd Trimester

I am now in my final trimester of my third pregnancy. This pregnancy has gone by so fast and now that I have just about 2 months left I am starting to remember why I don't love the third trimester. I have been so positive this pregnancy about my body changing and not stressing over gaining weight but as I am starting to become just a little uncomfortable I find that negativity starting to creep its way back in. I am really starting to get big, the baby is moving alot and I can feel body parts pushing against my stomach at different times. I love that part of the third trimester, its so fun to try and guess whether its the baby's hand, foot, butt, knee, etc. pushing against me. I know I will miss being pregnant when the baby is born so I am trying to keep that attitude about it and enjoy each and every second of what is left of this pregnancy. I am still working out daily either speed walking, light jogging, swimming, spin classes, cross training and lifting weights. I started coaching track this week, it is awesome! I love being out there and coaching something that I used to love doing. I know this will be my last year coaching track, with three little ones I just don't think it will work out next year. I am still having pretty constant braxton hicks, some are a little more intense than others. They are annoying but I can live with them for these last couple months so long as this baby stays put for at least another 7-8 weeks. Our list of names keeps growing longer for both sexes, we are no where near deciding on a name for either a boy or a girl. I thought we had our girl name but now we are both wavering after finding a couple other ones that we both like. It just may be a birth day decision after all.

One last thing, look what this soon to be mom of three got today.....
.....that is my new (to me) Ford Excursion. I am pretty much in love with it!
Dave does all the work when it comes to making big purchases and I think he did a great job picking out this one!

Wow! Is that what a mom of three gets to drive around? It looks HUGE! You still look great! Hope the name search narrows down for you. Can't wait to hear what you are having. Will and I jokingly said that if you have a boy we aren't trying for #3 but if you have a girl, we will! Too funny!!

Care you are an incredibly, beautiful and gorgeous prego mama in her third trimester. If I were you I would be eating ice cream out of the carton, and whatever sounded good at this point...Maybe that's why I gained so much weight? :) Anyway LOVE the new ride, I told Chris I want a suburban in the next year or two... It always seems like you need more room sooner than you think...I AM GLAD that you are DONE coaching track THIS YEAR. Put it in writing :) Love you mucho, take it easy, maybe just work out like 4 or 5 days, Dak is getting tired! Biiieee!
