Top Ten List

I have compiled a list of the top ten ways to know that you are in your third trimester of pregnancy...

#10. You realize that you are far enough along to schedule your 4D sonogram. (We're having ours done on the 14th. I can't wait! Never fear - pictures will be posted that day!)

#9. You realize that you are suddenly waddling when you walk - despite your best efforts to walk with one foot in front of the other. In my head I'm doing my best supermodel strut. In reality, I look like a duck!

#8. Your husband begins feverishly painting the nursery during every spare moment that you have together. (It's going to look great, Honey! I'm just teasing.)

#7. When people attempt to compliment your "pregnancy glow" you immediately think that they are referring to sweat. (105 degrees and pregnancy don't mix so well!)

#6. You feel your baby's hiccups for the first time. (Another one of my favorite parts of pregnancy! So cute...)

#5. You can no longer see your toes - much less paint your toenails. Pedicures are now a necessity - oh darn!

#4. While at the water park with your son, perfect strangers stop to ask you when you are due. (Okay, so I was in a swimsuit - no hiding this baby bump!)

#3. Even a bowl of cereal gives you horrible heartburn. (I'm averaging 10-12 Tums a day! No need to worry about my calcium intake.)

#2. You seriously contemplate ditching the demi panel maternity clothes


for the hideous (but oh, so comfortable) full panel variety

And the #1 way that you know you are in your third trimester of pregnancy...
#1. Your precious little baby has figured out how to use your bladder as his own personal trampoline!

A friend of mine kept wearing those pants after she had her baby because she said they were so comfortable. :)

Hang in there. The heat in the Dallas area summer is a killer! I can't wait to see that 3D sonogram. I can only imagine Wade's break neck speed in getting the nursery ready! He seems to want things off his "list" - only then can he relax.

I need your help with spicing up my blog...
I made a new template for the top, but I can't figure out why mine is not centered like yours. It's almost like my pic is too big??
Great top 10 list... I'm sure this summer heat is killer :(
