Why, hello there third trimester! I’m so happy to be in the last leg, only 12 more weeks until I meet my little guy! Over the past week, he has been very active in there and I love it, especially in the mornings. When I wake up, I usually lay in bed for about 30 minutes just to play with him and enjoy his stretches and kicks. My husband even had the lucky chance of feeling him for about 10 minutes straight last Saturday morning and it made me so happy. I think I am starting to get that “pregnancy face”, you know the one where your nose spreads and your face swells up…..refer to image below. My husband is in denial but I have compared pictures taken in the first trimester and early second trimester and my face is DEFINITELY changing.
