Pregnancy Diaries: Weeks 27, 28, and 29 (Baby #3)

I am officially in my third trimester and it has been one hell of a roller coaster ride! Morning sickness has been my nemesis the past few weeks and I literally feel like my hips are about to fall right off. I am carrying Little Miss way differently than how I carried her two older brothers. She is sitting extremely low in my uterus which explains all the lower back, pelvic and the hip discomfort that I have been experiencing lately. I try to stay clear of pain medication seeing as I have to have a C-section to get our little lady out. Warm baths and showers have been my best friend these past few weeks. I just pretend that the water bill doesn't keep going up. I have been having a lot of cravings for chocolate candy bars and milkshakes. I am avoiding spicy foods. The heartburn that I endure is out of this world. Lemons and limes give me acid reflux... I still drink lemonade though because it's delicious and I just don't care. Same with coffee but I will never give up my two cups of decaf every morning. It keeps me sane. 

I have been feeling Little Miss doing loads of summersaults. I swear she is head down one day and breech the next. She likes kicking me in the ribs...ouch! Like her two older brothers, she is very active mostly during the early mornings and in the evenings. Her movements aren't as forceful as Amari's and Talan's were but she moves a lot and my belly is starting to jiggle like Jell-O. I am getting excited to meet her. We will be meeting her in exactly 10 weeks! 

We also decided on her name but won't be telling until she's born. It was a chore deciding on it but it was worth the anticipation. We were juggling three that we absolutely loved and we picked her name while driving up north to Oly. My goal was for us to decided no later then 30 weeks. I wanted to order her a special newborn hat like I did for Talan. 

As of today, baby Durant weighs about 1 to 2.5 pounds and measures about 14.8 inches and is the size of a eggplant. Our little Princess is getting big!
