THIRD TRIMESTER, yay! 

FINALLY, a wee bit of nesting going on here. I washed baby clothes and linens. BUUUT that's about it. I know I still need to do this and that but by the time the weekend rolls around, this tired mama wants to rest. 

It will get done. Eventually. IF you feel so inclined, we have a registry over at Amazon for a few things we'll need in those early weeks.

And technically I am about 29 and a half weeks along, but alas, life happens and I couldn't post my 28 week photos last week. C'est la vie. 

On the symptoms front, it's much of the same. I have killer heart burn, insomnia, and pelvic cramping. I broke down and order a maternity girdle and we'll see how that helps with the pelvic and back support. It's en route, I'll keep you posted.

Paul and I have been playing around with name combos. We have a few top contenders, but we won't truly pick until after little man is born. Any who, the reason you're all here...BUMPDATE PICTURES.
