27 to 29 weeks - Hello, third trimester!

I've officially entered the third trimester of this pregnancy, which means we are in the home stretch now! (And woefully unprepared! We have yet to buy most baby items...)

I have to say that I understand now why the second trimester is called the "honeymoon trimester". I didn't blog much about it and that's because it was mostly comfortable and blissfully uneventful. There were times when I would forget that I was pregnant, that's how normal I felt.

Third trimester has been pretty good so far as well, but I am noticing some differences. My belly is growing larger every day, and it is beginning to interfere with some daily activities, like sleeping, getting (rolling) out of bed, reaching for plates in the upper kitchen cabinets. These are all minor details, though, and in general I'm feeling pretty good!

Here I am at 27 weeks:

27 weeks

This photo was taken in the future baby room, and as you can tell from the swatches, we are planning to paint over the orange walls (which look innocuously peach in this photo, but trust me, they are bright orange). But check out how much that baby bump has grown since my last photo at 19 weeks!

*Spoiler alert!* We already painted the baby room, and it wasn't with any of the swatches you see in the photo above!


  1. Oh your belly is super cute, you look adorable in that dress.
    And I am so glad to read the 2nd trimester went well and that you are mostly feeling well.
    Exciting times. Hoping the last stretch is as comfortable as possible, with all the changes still due to come. Thinking of you.

    1. Thank you, Amanda! I'm looking forward to the rest of this pregnancy, and even more so to what's to come after!

  2. Congrats on the 3rd trimester! I agree about the "honeymoon 2nd tri." I have less to say about it, except just feeling happy that things are going so well. I love the picture of your belly. You look adorable. Can't wait to see nursery pics.

    1. Thanks!

      I think the nursery won't be complete for a while because the baby will be sleeping in our room in the beginning, but I will post progress pics, etc.
