27 Weeks Pregnant

I’m finally seeing an end to this pregnancy and entering the third trimester. I’d like to enjoy these last few months with her inside me so that’s exactly what I plan on doing. The past week has been hard, granted I “deserve” it and all but my child does not. After contracting for the past 5 days and fear of preterm labor setting in I am thankful that we’re both doing okay.

My belly is now big enough that it knocks over just about anything I try to SQUEEZE past. There is no sucking it in to get past the car in the garage, just this morning I made that attempt and finally gave up.  My round ligament pain is now gone and with my extra time during spring break I plan on hitting the gym again. I know I won’t be running again until summer but I’d be happy walking a few miles a week again on the treadmill. I know it’s best for me and baby in the long term and if I can I will.  Doctor said its all a go, so I go.

My sweet baby Mia, I love you so much. Your sisters are happily getting more and more excited as you grow inside of me. One day soon you’ll be in my arms and I’ll feel like I’ve known you forever. I always wondered who my children would be and yet when I look at them they are exactly who I knew they would always be.

One day I will feel the same about you Mia.

    Great belly pic! I haven’t updated any shots of my belly yet since week 20. It is amazing how big it has gotten since then. I am having trouble sleeping comfortably at night though!

    I need to get on my treadmill more. For sure!!!

    Try not to worry about all the craziness going on though I’m sure it’s hard and stressful (clearly) like you said enjoy your pregnancy and your family. After all they are the most important thing in life!

    Suck up every last week of your pregnancy and enjoy it. Knowing Emma was my last I wish I had taken the time to enjoy that pregnancy more.

    I love the name Mia. It’s so delicate sounding. Kudos to you if you can still go to the gym. By this time it was almost impossible for me to walk without peeing lol.

      If she’s anything like my oldest she will be petite and delicate.
