I’m officially in the third trimester! It’s hard to believe that baby Putman will be here in just under 12 weeks! So I thought I would take today and let you know how the pregnancy is going. With only 12 weeks to go, everything is going to be happening very quickly and I want to share it so that I’ll always remember this stage of life!
How is Baby?
Baby Putman weighs about 2 pounds and is about 16 inches long. According to my pregnancy app, he is about the size of a Rollerblade! He likes to lay on my left side and kicks like crazy whenever I lay on my left side and take up his space. He mostly sleeps during the day and kicks a lot at night. I’m afraid that we won’t be sleeping much once he is born! Daddy has felt him kick several times.
Our smiley boy!
How is Mommy?
I didn’t really know that this is a thing, but I’ve developed carpal tunnel over the past few weeks and my fingertips are constantly numb and tingly. Sometimes I can’t sleep at night because my hands hurt so bad and I have to wear a brace on each hand. My poor blog is getting more and more neglected because I literally can’t type most of the time! School started last week and I’m exhausted. So far, each day I’ve taken a 2 hour nap whenever I get home from school. My students wear me out! I get some back aches and stomach aches but so far they aren’t too bad. I’m getting up 1 or 2 times at night to go to the bathroom or because I’m too hot.
We put the crib and changing table together yesterday and I am so excited to get the nursery all done so that I can finally show it to you all! We recently ordered a glider as well and it will be put together soon. His nursery does have a theme and I love it. I think he will too!
Our baby still doesn’t have a name even though we are close to settling on one. I have a name that I love but daddy isn’t sure about it yet. Thankfully we still have a few months to decide on the perfect name for our little boy.
We have 3 showers planned and the first one is in 2 weeks. Yay! I know that these showers are going to be so much fun. Our first shower is in Ohio and it will be my last time at home before the baby gets here. My next trip home will be Christmas with a tiny baby! FYI: We are registered at Target!
Now that he’s getting bigger and I feel him all the time, I am getting more and more excited! He is going to be such a blessing to us and definitely an adventure!
Do you have any advice for me? If you have an awesome heartburn remedy I’d love to hear it! Or advice for dealing with carpal tunnel would be awesome! Make sure you are following me on Instagram so that you can keep up with my family and our baby!
