baby a : 7 months


27 weeks
7 months
3rd trimester
{some say third trimester doesn’t start till the 28th week but the little chart I’ve been using {here} says it’s 27, so lets just stay consistent!}

HOW.IS.THIS.POSSIBLE?!

I feel like we just announced that we were pregnant! it is flying by and it’s kind of freaking me out!

quite a bit has happened since the last update.
i think i touched on this in my last update but i’ll do it again!
I am 100% over the morning/all day sickness, wahoo! that was really tough, you guys. cale and I were just reminiscing about it and I was the most miserable I have ever been in my entire life. I felt like an awful mom because all I wanted to do after I picked jaz up from school was go home and curl up on the couch, and die. I felt like an awful wife because I didn’t want to make dinner, ever, I didn’t want to be intimate, I didn’t even want to make myself presentable. blegh! I am so glad that is over with!

with the nausea letting up came good ol heartburn. it only flares up at night while I’m sleeping but nothing zantac can’t fix. I would seriously take heartburn, indigestion, hemorrhoids, ANTHING over nausea.

I am very noticeably pregnant now and still no stretch marks!
okay okay I lie. I have two teeny tiny ones on my hip but hey, I’ll take it! but no more, thank you.

my appetite hasn’t really changed, I crave random things at random times. cale just knows to be prepared to pull a uturn if we pass dq when I suddenly crave a milkshake. I’ve been really into sour things lately, instead of sweet. must be the boy thing.

too much info warning, guys stop reading here. i’ve started leaking colostrum already…what! i mean to the point where i have to put little pads in my bra already. i asked the doctor if that was normal and she said ‘mmm not really’ but it’s nothing to be concerned about. it’s just my body gearing up for the boob feed. unfortunately for cale, he has to stay far away from them. apparently if they are already producing colostrum then stimulation could induce labor…YIKES!

i’ve had a few braxton hicks but they weren’t bad and only lasted about 20 seconds. i may have had jaz almost 9 years ago but i definitley know the difference between real ones and pesky little braxton hicks.

i officially can no longer shave my legs. and you guys {mushy part is about to commence} my sweet, sweet husband does it for me. it’s okay you can audibly say “awwwww”. he literally gets in the shower with me and sits on the floor and shaves them. we have a stand up shower so i have nothing to prop my leg up on or else i would still be doing it.

the nursery is well on it’s way! I can’t wait to show you guys! so far all of the big items are purchased besides the rocking chair. cale will be putting up austin’s book corner as soon as we get the shelves delivered and the prints I ordered from etsy are on their way! next thing to tackle will be to redesign his closet and install some sort of system in there. eeeeee! it’s coming together so beautifully!

baby boy is the most active fetus ever! what’s super precious is that cale is the only one that can calm him down. every time he starts going bananas cale will come sit by me and talk to him and rub my belly. he instantly settles down with a few kicks here and there just to let his papa know he’s listening. it’s so cute!

we seriously can’t believe how fast this is going and in only 13 short weeks {or less} we will have our little babe!
