3rd pregnancy and entering my 3rd trimester

3rd pregnancy and entering my 3rd trimester, here are some thoughts.

I started having acid reflux in my 20-somethingth weeks of pregnancy this time. It came on a lot quicker than my other two pregnancies, and even hit me throughout the day instead of just at night. Oof. So I’ve been sleeping with my head propped up with my back almost upright for nearly two weeks since it’s gotten worse. At least this is temporary.

I finally met my new Obgyn.

Backstory: I switched to a new Obgyn because my other one… to put it plainly, I felt like I was a total bother to her. A little drama on that end. At the time my car was out of commission so I could only visit the clinic when Scott was working from home two specific days a week. One half of those two days per week I work at my son’s school. So I’m working on only a day and a half per week being able to see that doc. Coinsidently is she doesn’t work on one of the two days I was free. Good grief.

I subtilty asked to switch providers. Provider was booked up with patients. Next appt I go to with the OBGyn she brings up the fact she saw I wanted to switch doctors. Awkward. I eventually said yes and she agreed with my scheduling. Good thing. Cause as soon as I met my new Obgyn last week, I felt immediately comfortable around her. Such better bedside manner, didn’t rush my appointment, and I felt as if she truly listened. I also asked if certain days I could bring my middle child in with me, if my appointment was scheduled for a day I couldn’t leave him with Scott. She was actually delighted at the thought to meet one of my kids. Whereas the other doctor basically told me she doesn’t usually allow it and she could make an exception if necessary. So basically no lol. Wtf. Fantastic mannerisms, I tell ya.

Anyway. Glad I switched cause if I irritated that doc just by my scheduling differences I definitely don’t want her in charge of bringing my new baby into this world. Jeewhiz!

So that’s the update for now. I feel like I need to stop eating suppers and just have more frequent meals earlier in the day because come supper time ….food isn’t appealing and I can already visualize the acid reflux in my throat. So nasty.

Sidenote, got a new bassinet in the mail over the weekend, and assembled it yesterday. Can’t wait to talk more about it in another post.

What I’m wearing in my 3rd pregnancy

I got rid of everything baby related items from 0-12months, maternity wear, and I think most of the baby gear too. So I’m on the hunt for only the essentials this time around. I still want to get a rolling bassinet for the baby, and then for the clothes we still need a few more items. We have time! I think!

But this time around I knew what I wanted to wear. I don’t tend to wear many maternity tops and just stick to oversized tees and sweaters. But considering how big my belly gets with these ten pounders I knew I wanted a specific style of maternity pants. I bought these leggings from Target, love ’em. But I bought them a bit too big and they do slide down throughout the day.

I am an avid lover of all things Blanqi Girls makes, so I reached out to them a few months back and they sent me a lot more than I asked for which ….isn’t that the best? I already did my social posts for them and they have no idea I’m writing a post about their leggings but honest to golly their maternity support leggings are the absolute must-haves in my opinion. They just FEEL different on the belly, and that’s because they have some magical built in belly support band that makes my belly feel completely weightless and does not slide down. If you’re pregnant and not knowing what to put on that Christmas and Holiday wishlist this year – thiiiiiiis is it.

Big and healthy babies runs in this family

Well there is baby # 3! That is so wild for me to say….a third baby.

This photo is over two months old at one of the growth scans I had done in either July or August. The other week I had a fetal echo to check on baby’s heart. All’s well. But of course I’m known on my chart as “oh you’re the one with the ten pound babies!“. Yes, I am. And this one is following suit. Baby is proportionately large with legs and arms measuring 4 weeks ahead at some measurements and everything else at the 99th percentile. Big n’ healthy babies is what runs in this family.
