Starting the Third Trimester

Depending on which source you use, the third trimester starts at week twenty seven, which I have completed, or week twenty eight, which I am in now. In honor of having reached this milestone, it’s time to post some more bump photos. The Pacman shirt was bought years ago to attend a birthday party for our friend Jason, and the tribe of self described game needs who attend.

I recently wore the shirt to a video game and pinball show which I attended with Matt. I liked it as Packman is depicted as being round (particularly in the cartoon) as my stomach is. It would have been really funny had the bump had Pacman directly on it.

At twenty five weeks I couldn’t resist wearing my coffee shirt. It’s from an independent coffee shop that is no longer around, a great place that had amazing unique drinks including one which allowed the barista to make a new drink on the spot for you.

I didn’t drink a lot of coffee in my pre-pregnant state, preferring sweet drinks with some coffee base and have not had any of those since finding out I was pregnant. However, after going with a fiend to a chain coffee store, my now heightened sense of smell makes me crave it, even in pure coffee form.

When Matt and I were still engaged I spent time on Etsy shopping for clothes for our honeymoon. This tank top with three whales on it was the one I wore for our open water dolphin swim and my twenty six week bump pictures.

Matt and I both are WWE fans from way back. One of my favorite wrestlers was Daniel Bryan who we both met in person and whom we saw with the International Continental Championship live at Wrestlemania 31 in Santa Clara.

Now that I’m in the third trimester, the baby definitely moves more and the movements are more consistent and able to be felt from the outside. I haven’t had a foot or hand shoe through yet, and look forward to seeing that and getting pictures to share.
