27 Weeks


I am nearly 7 months pregnant.  That seems like a LOT pregnant.  I have 1 week left of my 2nd trimester.  Since it took me a few weeks in to get to that “renewed sense of well-being” that lots of people talk about for the 2nd tri, I hope that I can start the uncomfortable, irritable, anxious part of the 3rd trimester a bit late too, like, let’s have that set in around week 39.

I am still jogging here and there, trying to hold onto my fitness as long as possible (thank you belly bra and belly band).  I feel FULL every time I eat, so I find myself eating smaller amounts more often.  My pre-pregnancy jeans will no longer button.  That lasted a long time, but I am still bummed.  My chest is (for me) enormous.  The baby got the hiccups for the first time last week, and she continues to make her presence known, often.

Sometimes I feel panicked about the time I have left and all that I need to get done.  Now that my trips and one birthday is over, I hope to focus on some of my to-do’s.  I am pretty sure the time is going to fly by and pretty soon I am going to be posting pictures of the Pickle in the teeny tiny hats I made her.  Jason seems to be getting more excited, which is really sweet to see.  I am pretty excited to meet her too, and smell her.

PS. Making good progress on her blessing day bonnet.
PPS. I am starting to think about public middle schools in Manhattan for Phoebe, summer week-long camps for both girls and baby announcements for Pickle, so if you have recommendations for any of that, please leave them in the comments.

    Check out Tiny Prints for the birth announcements – I got some nice invitations for Stephanie’s shower from that site. Love the blessing bonnet. You and Stephanie are only 3 weeks apart.

  2. It is so great that you feel so good. Time will fly. Her baby bonnet is precious!
