I've officially hit another milestone! THIRD TRIMESTER! Where has the time gone? I was told it would go by fast & when I was told this I was probably 9 weeks along. I was just dragging every day because I felt like it was going by so slow! Now, I wish I had more time with being less uncomfortable though. The overwhelming feeling has officially set in like I need to get everything done. Which, I will probably get the majority and be bored by the end of my pregnancy waiting on little one to come into this world to join us.

I didn't think much of it but then Wednesday rolled around & I was having bad cramping when I was at work.. I do what every other pregnant woman would do and turn to mom groups & forums on pregnancy sites. Looking up " Cramping 24 weeks, feels like period cramps." I got a mix of answers so I called my maternity doctor and let her know my symptoms the last couple of days and how I've been feeling. She said I should head to the hospital to be assessed, but before we made any solid plan she put me on hold for a couple of minutes and we both decided I should just come into the office. So thats what I did!

Uhm, hello lung capacity WHERE DID YOU GO?! I've noticed these last two weeks it is getting a little harder to do everyday normal exercise. Along with kicks or headbutt's to the bladder so I feel like I need to hit the washroom even though I did 3 minutes ago. These last two weeks have been somewhat uneventful apart from Spencer feeling little one kick for the first time! It was such a cool moment. We've been waiting for this moment ever since I started feeling him kick at 16/17 weeks!

This has been one of the best weeks I think as far as symptoms go! Everything is very manageable. I have more energy, so does baby LOL. He or She keeps rolling around and kicking and loves to put their head right by my bladder and get lodged in between my bladder & the sac. We have had two ultrasounds in the last week. The first was a 3D ultrasound we paid for and received a bear with babes heartbeat recorded into it, USB with all the photos & video of our session and also two printouts in 3D. We went right at 19 weeks and so our lovely tech asked us to come back at 28 weeks for another session for free!

This week I have definitely been feeling a little more exhausted than normal. According to the apps I use to track my pregnancy. (You can see my favourite ones here) It says a symptom this week could be dizziness due to low blood pressure. Which is completely on point! Also, I am having a hard time walking fast like I normally would. My spouse says it's so different that I'm the slow poke now because I normally would be ahead of everyone if we were walking together! Now I can barely keep up with my 6'3 other half when we do trail walks! I also can barley bend to tie my shoes.. So I had to take evidence that Spencer was tying my shoes for me since he took a photo of me tying his shoe last summer as a joke saying I was his assistant!
