Here are some pregnancy pics I have taken so far. I am 28 weeks along now, which means I am just starting my 3rd trimester. I have really been trying to savor this pregnancy since it will likely be my last one. :)
I also want to really do better weight wise, since in the past I haven't been good in that area. If only I'd known how difficult it would be to lose the weight after wards!
Healthy pregnancy weight is about 30 pounds they say. So far, at 28 weeks I've gained 18 pounds. Which leaves me 12 pounds to go and the 3rd trimester is when it can really pile on for me. I'm just taking it one day at a time.....
I haven't had any real trouble, which is nice. I'm starting to get a bit uncomfortable at times, but nothing too bad. :)
I am having soreness in my thighs, which I found out is due to my pelvic muscles spreading and preparing for delivery. Interesting... I never experienced this with my other pregnancies, but my midwife says it is normally after a few kids it becomes more noticeable. (I've noticed it also makes me feel like waddling or walking like an old woman! :P )
Kind of like the after birth pains increase too, after multiple children. :S Oh well, I'm sure she will be worth it!!
She has been moving more which is always cool! She doesn't move around as much as my other ones did, which I hope translates to a relaxed, calm, and peaceful baby/child. That would be much appreciated, seeing as she is number 5. :)
At times, I can even see her move around. My tummy does a little jump here or a wave there.
The kids really like to talk to her or just say, "I love you, Baby!" to my tummy. So cute. They are beyond excited and full of questions, too. Especially Isaac, he is a really inquisitive one. Such as: "Does the baby eat the pizza you're eating?"
I can always use prayers, so feel free to throw one out there for me from time to time. We'll probably be taking more pics soon. So, more to come......
