2/3 Down! I can't believe I'm in my 3rd Trimester?!

Wow... This pregnancy has gone by so fast for me so far. I really can't believe I have less than 13 weeks left before the little guy is due! I feel like I have so much to do... I think I also thought that i'd be more mentally prepared to be a mother by now, but i'm still freaking out a little, is this normal??

That being said, I am getting more & more excited to meet our little guy, & I feel so connected to him already. I feel like we are buddies, & alot of times when I am having a particularly rough moment he will kick at me & it makes me smile my head off. This pregnancy thing really is miraculous, & I feel so blessed to be able to get pregnant & to have things going so smoothly so far.

I have a feeling this 3rd trimester will be the roughest for me. Here is why... I have NOT been sleeping well at all. Ask me how well I do without sleep?! All I have to say is, poor Bryce. It's a good thing he is like the most patient man ever. & I suppose I need to get used to not sleeping anyway!

My other recent & notable pregnancy change is major back pain. I think it is from sitting in a chair all day, or maybe I just seriously pulled something?! Who knows.

I have heard that both these symptoms get worse as you get bigger (which makes sense) so it will be an interesting ride! What a small price to pay though for this little guy. Honestly, I have had it really easy so far & I feel like it's only fair for me to be uncomfortable for 3 months strait :). Anything as long as he is a healthy boy.

Here is a picture of me last night at 27 weeks:

Wow are you sure there is a baby in there?! ha ha you are tiny. Glad things are going good for you so far. The back pain does not sound like fun though. I wonder if a heating pad would help while you are sitting? Miss you!
