29 weeks! The countdown begins!

11 weeks left? Really? Actually it's 10 weeks 6 days but who is counting? :)

The third trimester slump has kicked it. That is what I am calling it. I am so damn tired, I can barely get out of bed. It might have to do with the fact that I wake up 32 times to pee in the middle of the night or that I am carrying around more weight....I don't know. I get 8+ hours of sleep at night and I get home from work and all I want to do is go back to bed!

Shaving my legs and painting my own toenails are getting more and more difficult. Shaving is well, kind of scary. Today, I wore a dress and realized that um, I missed half of my right leg. Awesome.

I am trying to figure out this whole eating smaller amounts thing. I am eating the same amount of food but getting really full. I guess my organs are getting more and more squished and that equals less room for food and hello indigestion! I have figured that smaller meals=happy mom and baby!

My belly button is getting closer and closer to popping! I never thought mine would but it's looking like it's getting close!

I saw my friends baby the other day and it reminded me of how close I am getting and it left me all excited and gooey inside! I was hoping that I could get a glimpse of his little face at my ultrasound but I think he just wants us to be surprised.

I am pretty excited, I have some great family and friends and I have several showers scheduled for next month! I can't wait!

I have a post coming soon to answer some of your questions, so if you have any more feel free to ask!

With all the bat drama, I didn't get a pic but I am planning on taking one this weekend for week 30! For some reason, I feel like week 30 leaves me to the real countdown! I feel like it's so far away, but like it will be here before we know it! I am excited for fall too! I love the cooler weather and this year it couldn't come fast enough!

So, speaking of that damn bat. We had pest control come out to remove it and said the bat was gone (Blake keeps asking me why I call it a him) so he helped Blake shut the chimney thingy. He tells Blake to put plywood in front of our fireplace. Um, noooo. Our friend came our to put some chicken wire on the top of cap and what did he find? Oh, our little bat friend. He was able to get him out and they covered the outside of the fireplace pretty well. So, let's hope that was the end of our bat issue. That man was no bat-man!

Smaller meals is a great tip for first time mommies! I had terrible heartburn and indigestion. My doc also said not to lie down after eating, which is all I wanted to do the last couple of months. LOL.

Don't worry about the slump. Once nesting hits you will get more done in one week than you would have in 3 months anyways!!
