As of Saturday, we are officially in the 3rd trimester!!
I'm so excited to be in the "home stretch" but it also feels like 12 weeks is still a long time. I know it isn't and that May will be here before we know it. I'm just so excited to meet our little man! On the same note, I don't want him to come out a single day before he's supposed to. He can stay in there and get nice and strong as long as he needs.
We had a doctor's appointment on Friday and found out that the little guy is already head down. Such a good baby already. I guess it is normal for babies to get themselves into position between 24 and 28 weeks. And my doctor said he isn't likely to flip. And once she pointed out the location of his head and how low it was, she definitely thought he wasn't likely to flip. He's WAY low and using my bladder as a pillow.
The other thing we discussed at the appointment is the fact that I retain water like a champion. Apparently she had noticed her patients with thyroid disorders have a problem with water retention. I noticed a problem with water retention way before I got pregnant, so I can believe it. However, since it took more than 3 liters of water to stay not bloated before I was pregnant, I'm not sure how much it will take now that I am. I'm also not sure how many trips to the bathroom that will cause.
My excellent water retention has made me not that excited to take any pictures of myself. But I decided I should probably put another one up since it has been a while. This was the best I could do last week:
It takes a lot of concentration sometimes. Plus that particular bra has officially given up it's will to live.
I'm so excited we only have 3 months left. Overall, this pregnancy really hasn't been that bad. Sure, I have some aches and pains. But really isn't hasn't been anything out of the ordinary (I think).
12 weeks left!
