Anyone else counting down the days until you hit the third trimester? 

 

3 for me!    Woohoo!

 

I don't know why, but I've been in a hurry for this baby to come since the time I found out I was pregnant!  I guess we're getting there. I have a million things to do before then, so I'm really planning it all out and need every ounce of time I have. 

 

 I felt like I was in the third trimester last week.  My energy was super low again.  I hope it was just a fluke and not how it's going to be from now on.

Some say anywhere between 26 and a half to 28 weeks but I think most doctors go with 28 weeks.

I think your counting is just fine. So, it depends what you consider the third trimester. I'd personally go with 28 weeks but if you wanna count it from 27 weeks, it's not gonna hurt anything. :)

I'm counting it at 27 weeks.  The books and websites I've been using say 27 weeks, but I know the lines for each trimester are drawn a little differently with different sources.  Can't possibly wait 1 more week! 

 

So   more days (as far as I'm concerned!)

Ah, that makes sense, then, I was getting confused with who said what and thought you were thinking you were going on 28 weeks :P

 

For me, 30 weeks (even though it's past the trimester mark, no matter which way you count!) is the next big milestone, as opposed to hitting 3rd trimester.  I am not sure why, exactly...change of first digit? LOL!  I find things start to go faster after I hit 30 weeks, too, so that's part of it.  Hence...3 weeks and 2 days for me :P

My iPhone app says 27 weeks which is TODAY! I'm feeling it, too...


 DD1 (8yrs) + DD2 (6yrs) + DS1 (4/25/11) = one crazy adventure!

I've read 27 weeks, too... but seems like 7 days either way isn't a big difference.  either way it feels good to be getting towards the end!

I've always counted 28 weeks as start of 3rd tri and since I'm in no rush to have this 3rd babe, then I'm giving myself another 2 weeks.  :D  Can't believe how much I need to do to get prepped.  Very little is related  to buying baby items and such but more to do with re-arranging room setups and such for my other two children.

I have two weeks, 2 days left until I'm in the 3rd trimester (counting 28 weeks). I think it's taking *forever* and know that the last trimester is going to drag on for me. I think I've been a little over prepared because I started getting stuff with my miscarriage and then totally ramped up once this pregnancy hit the low danger point, so now I have everything I need really. Just have to set up the baby's room and I'm good to go. I got my stroller last week and put it together. My husband and I have been walking around the apartment using the stroller pantomiming having the baby with a toy. :)

27 weeks today, so next Monday is 28 weeks! So excited. I'm nervous too though. There's still so much to be done to get ready for this baby, and not enough time to do it all! DH has been working so much and we just started getting more involved with our church, which makes our weekends super busy.

Another 2 weeks for us over here. I'm already starting to feel the nesting kick in. Last night I was playing games with DS and between turns I tackled the still unpacked things. It was gnawing away at me. Let the 13 week cleaning frenzy begin! :P

If we're counting it as 27 weeks then I'm there and if we're counting it as 28 weeks I'll be there in 3 days.

I'm excited!

I've got a couple weeks still too... but here and there I feel the urge to nest for sure! It usually hits when I try to lay down to sleep, or if I've attempted to watch tv or relax - I start thinking about this or that, and next thing I know, I'm up for another hour or two, cleaning something, working on the organization in my office or going over our to do list before the baby comes. I just all the sudden "go, go, go". It cracks my hubby up! Until I start jumping on him about all his to dos mischievous.gif (we have small remodel projects that really must get done before little miss arrives!).

Woohoo - today marks the beginning of my third trimester! 28 weeks down... 12 to go!

 

I didn't realize that it's 12 weeks first tri... 16 weeks second? then 12 again for third.  Strange.

I go in stages pretty much related to if I've got bad pelvic pain/infections or not. Right now I'm finally feeling clear and am itchy to get the work done before I get another infection and am too sore to move. (I tend to get a week clear before another one attacks. No one knows why.)
