Say Hello to the 3rd Trimester

Baby LG3, Elizabeth 2 Comments

To start of the post: Here is the link to the Baby Guessing Game again.

Get your GIRL or BOY guess in while you can. I haven’t seen a guess from Aunt Yvette yet—she is the one to beat :)

Last week we welcomed the 3rd & final trimester for Baby LG3! 12 or so weeks to go — I guess that means we really should get ready for this baby’s arrival!!


23 Weeks vs. 28 Weeks – this baby is getting bigger every week!

It still surprises people when they haven’t seen me in a few weeks or they only see me sitting down at my desk. When I stand up, I generate quite the reaction. “Whoa!! You really are….pregnant!” – ha ha. Yes, that is a nicer way of saying “Dang, you are HUGE!!”

We had a Dr’s Appt this last week. Everything is going as planned. Surprisingly, I measured approx. 27 weeks ON my 28th week day. (I find it hard to believe I am not measuring AT LEAST 1 weeks ahead). The heartbeat was great. We have another appointment in 3 weeks to do a follow-up ultrasound to make sure the placenta isn’t close to/covering the cervix. Should be interesting to see the baby this far along. We have never had more than the ’20 weeks ultrasound’ before. Maybe a chance to get a glimpse at the ‘goods’ —– kidding!!!! We certainly wouldn’t want to ruin the surprise now!

Halloween 2014

After last Halloween (Star Wars themed costumes & trunks) – I have to admit, we (and the Miller’s) were out of the next ‘epic’ idea. Fine by me. We kept it pretty mild and manageable – but LOTS of activities.

We went to the Halloween Happening at Nicholas’ school (and brought a friend, Jonas, with us)

I am a bit late posting about our big boys’ birthday – but I didn’t want to skip it, so here goes.

This year we did a little something different. Instead of our normal large house party – we decided to have a small ‘friends only’ [party for Nicholas. He invited 12 friends to come over on a Friday night for “Dinner & a Movie“. Joe & I thought this was a reasonable and do-able plan (serve pizza, eat cupcakes, open presents, watch a movie with popcorn). It was ‘only‘ 3 hours….(eek!!)
