It is amazing the changes one experiences going from 1st to 2nd and then to the final 3rd trimesters. I was happy to get out of the first due to morning (all day) sickness. Even though it continued slightly into the second-- for the most part I was great in my second trimester. Didn't need as many naps, wasn't too big yet, had significantly more energy than in my first, etc. I can totally see why it is the most blissful stage of pregnancy.
[25 weeks]Then over night the 3rd trimester hit. I am getting bigger which means so is he, which then means his little cute jabs are more, well, breath-taking, yet still amazing. But, boy oh boy I think he will be a strong karate kid! Heartburn has come on stronger and so has that dreaded momsomnia. I am still exercising and feeling relatively good, but I can feel a significant difference from second to third trimesters.
[26 weeks]Even with the aches and pains I am able to realize what a miracle this baby is and how absolutely amazing our bodies are. I mean, come on, who knew my belly could really stretch to these places it has never been before. Seriously though, I can see the scar in my belly button, never thought that day would come.
I learn something new nearly everyday and it is amazing. I have a little less than 3 months to go. I can not wait to see this little guy of ours. To snuggle and cuddle and kiss and squeeze him. Oh what a day it will be.

Can't believe I am sharing these pictures. I am usually not ready when I take them.
I should get better at that.
