Today I started my third trimester. I find that very hard to believe, because although I do feel like I've been pregnant for a while, I also can't believe that I'm approaching the end. I'm still waiting to experience so many of the things that people say pregnancy is all about, late night cravings and mood swings....strangers holding the door open for you and tiny baby kicks to the bladder. I suppose these things may come over the next three months.
Now it's time for Brian and I to begin the final preparations. We've signed up for all of the classes the local hospital offers and I'll be joining a water aerobics class in hopes that the extra conditioning will ease labor. The shower dates are on the calendar and the short term disability paperwork is complete. I'm looking forward to it all.
