7 months Preggo - Last Trimester (WooHoo)
I am officially in my last trimester now! Praise God, I have made it to the home stretch! lol. My cravings these days are most always for sweets. I crave fresh baked cookies all the time but, Betty Crocker frosted cupcakes, maple frosted donuts, chocolate milkshakes and sweet cereals are also just as satisfying:). I force myself to eat salads as I still don't really care for them but, I know how much I need to eat healthy right now. I just had a salad for lunch and yuck, it wasn't satisfying at all so now I am eating 3 oatmeal cookies and I feel much better:). haha
During the day I am more or less fine aside from the dull ache I have in my stomach and lower back from the tightness and cramping, but it's nighttime that is tough for me. I sleep horribly and average about 4-5 hours of sleep a night these days. Yes, I know this is "baby preparation" as everyone tells me that but, I am not wanting baby preparation right now..I just want to sleep while I can! My back, for whatever reason just isn't handling the new weight gain very well but, I think that is pretty much how most all pregnant women feel at this point soooo yah. :). I am thankful that my hormones have given me some relief in the emotions department. That has been the hugest blessing over the past 2 months!!
Our little girl is so strong and active. She punches, rolls and kicks on cue every night for Joey when we first lay down for bed. He gets such a thrill out of how predictable her nightly activity is and how strong she is now. One of my greatest joys in this pregnancy has been the times when my hubby and I get to feel our little girl move together while we talk to her, plan for her and pray for her. Just under 3 months until we hit Due Day but, we shall see if this little one makes her appearance early or late. Only time will tell:).
