Third Trimester – Where Did the Time Go?

Sunday marked the start of the third trimester for me and the little guy. The time has just flown by because I have been distracted by the three kiddos not residing in my womb. Those moments in the day when I get a chance to sit and relax is when our baby will start moving and I realize that “this is really happening”.


The girls seem just as distracted as me when it comes to the fact that in a few short weeks we will be a family of six. My ever-growing belly barely gets any notice from them. They are probably just used to it by now. Baby brother does come up in conversation though, mainly to discuss what we might name him. Sarah has suggested “Josepher” while Abigail suggested and became attached to the name “Marco” for a little while.

So, what are we going to name him? There is a name at the top of our list (and our list happens to be a list with only one name on it) but we aren’t ready to make it public knowledge yet. I’m not sure why. As soon as we came up with names for our other babies we were eager to make them known.

My pregnancy is still pretty much the same as my others were. Though my issues with heartburn have been kicked up a notch. “They” say that heartburn means your baby has a good head of hair. I am not holding my breath.

We have slowly started preparations to welcome our baby into our home. A few months ago we switched rooms with the girls. Why would two adults need a master bedroom when four children are smooshed into a smaller second bedroom? Our master bedroom is the perfect size and can easily fit the bunk beds, crib, and another twin bed we expect to put in place in early November for Lily.

We are looking forward to early January to meet our little guy. Until then we have Lily’s birthday, Thanksgiving, and Christmas to go through first (which is bound to make the time go by even faster!).
