I have finally hit that third trimester. I feel sick, tired, and icky. But every time the baby kicks I am sooooo excited. I really have baby fever bad. I am really excited because I was not very well off with my first pregnancy and relied of family and friends to help me get stuff for my babies, and there was a lot of hand me downs. With this baby, I get to actually plan for a nursery and pick out what I want. I set a budget, but for the first time for me, it is so exciting to go buy cute baby clothes and blankets. I am doing a sports theme, and am so excited about it!!

I had an absolute blast planning the baby's room & buying all the stuff for it & of course we got tons of stuff at the baby shower! I used to never go to the baby section when I went into a store, only if I had to buy a gift for someone else's baby...now I find everytime I go into a store that's where I go, regardless if I need anything or not! Its just so much fun to just look at everything!! I still go in her room & rearrange a few things! My 3rd trimester I felt pretty good exceot for being tired & leg spasms at night at the very end....good luck to you!

Thank you so much for your comment! I am having the leg spasms so bad right now. They hit me at 10:30 every night like clockwork! Drives me nuts, but if I take a bath, they usually go away...but by then its really late, and I have to get up early...so I am super tired. I am so ready for this baby except that I haven't bought everything that I need yet. And I agree, I have baby fever bad!! I want to do nothing but shop in baby stores and baby sections. I am even getting excited over formula at Costco!

My bay girl was born just four weeks ago so I remember being six months pregnancy. I felt excited having my twenty week scan and hearing that my baby is healthy. I began to feel more relaxed and bought a few baby things. My sister and a few friends kindly gave me some clothes for my baby and a car seat. I already had a moses basket. I bought a double buggy. I had maternity clothes but in later pregnancy they got tight and uncomfortable. I had a few outfits that still fitted me luckily. Feeling my baby kick was exciting. I felt unwell in my last trimester and uncomfortable after 37 weeks. It was worth it for I have now got a lovely little baby girl called Amber. Good luck with the last few months of your pregnancy.

Congratulation!! I have two and I know how it felt. 6 months? if so you should start walking as much as you can, and when it comes to due date... you will be ready for the baby. My first one took me 6 hours in labor and then my second one is only 2 hours. when I feel contraction, im not going to the hospital right the way yet... cuz all they do just hold on to me. I just keep walking and walking until the contraction came every 10minutes then I went to the hospital. it is a great experience about having a baby and you will feel so amazing cuz of new life

I wish I could walk, but I am on bedrest. That recent photo was taken in my bathroom, because according to my doc, I have bathroom priveliges. And both of my labors were induced because my baby's are so big, I had to have them early! So, I have no idea what it is like to actually go into labor without a shot of something.
