Third Trimester


Hello everyone! Sorry for the delay on belly shots. I was having problems posting any photos for a few days. I am 27 weeks now which marks the beginning of the third trimester. I am feeling great and could not ask for a better pregnancy so far. My belly is slowly but surely getting bigger. The baby kicks and punches out of control now and he has even hit some organs that have made me jump. My next doctor appointment is September 13th and at that visit they are going to do the glucose test. This is where I have to drink some type of liquid, wait an hour, then have my blood drawn in order to determine if I have gestational diabetes. Then after that appointment I have to go to the doctor every two weeks. The last month I will be going every week until I deliver. This weekend we are going to a wedding in Savannah for one of Jason's classmates. We are leaving early Saturday morning and staying the night there and returning home Sunday morning. Ironically, my great friend Jennifer has flown out from California this same weekend to check out spots in Savannah for her own wedding next year. So I will get to see her too. My parents are coming and staying the night at our house while we are gone so that they can practice their babysitting skills on Chopper. He is very excited about having them here because he loves them, especially my mother because she gives him treats when we visit them. Now that Leo is gone Chopper is allowed up in the house and he follows my mother where ever she goes, just like Leo did. As you can see I have a new belly ring in. Well this is one that my fabulous coworker and friend, Keona, gave me for my birthday. Its not really a pregnancy ring but it's longer than regular ones and made of plastic. I do have some pregnancy belly rings that Jason got me for my birthday but they are quite long and tend to get caught on clothing so I am holding off on those. I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend!!

goodness! You still don't look that big. That ring is something else. You need one that dangles! I'm glad Chopper likes to be babysat. He'll be doing a lot of that himself. Have fun at the wedding.

What in the world? Where are your maternity clothes? This is making no sense AT ALL!? Not that I'm planning on having more children, but if I do, the father of the child is not allowed to see you with a belly ring and NORMAL pants!!!! It's just not fair. Love you anyways!!! Melissa Hasty-McCurdy
