Pregnancy Diaries: Weeks 30, 31, 32, 33, and 34 (Baby #3)

Oh pregnancy. I honestly hate the third trimester the most. I'm now in the can't sleep at night stage and toss and turn nonstop which annoys the crap out of my poor hubby. I seriously probably only get a few hours of sleep a night. It sucks cause I am extremely exhausted and being a working mom and dealing with youth in vulnerable situations only adds to my fatigue. I'm also hot all the time. I literally have to take an ice cold shower just to cool off at night. My stomach feels like a heater 24/7 and the heat-wave we have been having over the past week doesn't help much either. I hate being hot  and I am so over summer and we still have a month and a half left of the season. I seriously keep counting down the days until my scheduled C-section but at the same time am trying to enjoy being pregnant too. We don't plan on having any more babies after Little Miss is born and I am trying to savor ever second of this pregnancy.  

Last Monday we got to see our little princess via ultrasound. She has grown so much since we last saw her. She wasn't feeling being on the big screen and refused to cooperate with the technician. She kept those little chicken legs crossed when she went to confirm the gender for us. Our girl is stubborn. She better come out a she or I am going to be upset for about 3.5 seconds. Just kidding. 

Little Miss is starting to get more active or at least her movements are getting stronger now that she is fattening up. She managed to kick me so hard against my spin two weeks ago that she kicked me out of alignment. I had heard horror stories about babies breaking their mama's ribs but I never thought that my baby would kick me so hard. It hurt so bad and I had to wait over 24 hours to get an emergency prenatal realignment at my chiropractor the next day. It sucked. It really, really, really sucked. I am praying that it doesn't happen ever again. 

Heartburn is still a pain in the butt and only intensifies as the weeks tick on. Everything I eat gives me heartburn. Ugh, at least I know she will come out with a nice head of hair. Every single one of my babies came out with a thick mane. Milkshakes and ice cream have become my best friends and my chaser is tums. Yum... 

So far Little Miss is 18 to 19 inches tall and weights around 4 to 6 pounds and is the size of a butternut squash. In a few weeks we will be meeting our sweet little lady and I cannot wait!
