Nearing my third trimester

I can’t believe that in just a few short days, I will be entering my third trimester. I shared the news of my pregnancy with all of you at just 4 weeks, and at that time, October seemed like an eternity away.

Yet, here we are on the last day of September, and boy, do I have a belly to show for it! Why am I not showing you my belly, you might ask? Well, that’s a post for another day. I could easily fall into a guilt trip about not documenting this pregnancy in photos, but to be honest, I just feel too fat and unattractive. There, I said it.

You know, I really can’t catch a break this pregnancy. Evan has had croup this week, and I have been suffering with a terrible sinus infection and sore throat.

My nausea is definitely improved from the first and second trimesters, but by golly, I still get sick almost every single day.

I’m also starting to have some of those later-in-pregnancy aches and pains that we all know and love, including some intense lower back pain and pelvic pressure. Most of my back pain comes at night when I should be able to get some much needed rest.

At 27 weeks, I am pretty sure that my husband and I have finally agreed on a baby name. Yes, you heard that right. FINALLY! For some reason, I am feeling strangely protective of the name. Maybe it’s just an attempt to hold onto some little secret from my final pregnancy. It’s been a tough road, but kind of sad that I won’t be going through any of it again.

Anyone want to wager a guess at baby girl’s name?
