I still can’t believe that I’m already 29 weeks, and as with every stage of pregnancy, the third trimester brings a mixed bag of emotions and feelings. But I’m ready! It feels good to be this far along, even though this pregnancy has been a little harder on me compared to my first born.

Perhaps I should be feeling proud of making it through the first two trimesters, but I kid you not: It gets harder and harder. Even though I love to display my ever growing bump (a precious reminder that Baby J is busy growing in there!)—I still get overwhelmed and emotional from time to time. The tangible evidence of baby brother we keep talking about is coming closer and closer. There are days where I want to hurry things up and slow down at the same time…So much needs to get done still before Baby J debuts his big arrival. So perhaps mentally, I need more time but physically…I’m done. You may not see it in my pictures but I’m in a lot of pain these days. My rib cage hurts—especially when sitting down (like right now as I am writing this post) and my back gives me tremendous grief. However, I’m grateful that Baby J is still inside of me. The early contractions I’ve had almost 2 weeks ago were very scary and I don’t want this to happen again until our precious baby boy is actually ready to come out.
My son Kingston, though is over the moon and couldn’t be more excited. He thinks he can start playing with his baby brother the minute he’s born—it’s too cute! It melts my heart every time he says these things. So, while mommy and daddy are getting things ready, and even with all the change ahead, perhaps we are pretty much at peace with it. Motherhood has taught me so much already. We tend to be perfectionist’s, and I might worry a lot but there’s one thing I’ve learned from my first born: Everything will work out one way or another.
As always, thanks so much for reading & following along my pregnancy journey! Your support has been so tremendous—my family and I can’t thank you enough!
