<p>I just made 26 weeks, but WOW is time flying.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm starting to get a little anxious though. I only made it to 30 weeks with my twins and that's just a month away from now. I have no reason to expect #3 will come that early, but anything past 30 weeks will be new territory for me.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Come on 3rd Trimester!</p>

<p>Yes, I am in my third trimester today (or last monday or this monday) depending on how you count it. I'm 28 weeks on Monday. The first trimester went by really slowly, but the the second trimester flew by. I have no idea what to expect for this last one.</p>

<p>I'll hit the third trimester on Thanksgiving. I think we are still in shock that there is going though LOL</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Today my midwife could feel all the different parts of the baby. Even the head! Weird for only being 25 weeks.</p>

<p>I won't be entering the third trimester for a few weeks, but it already feels like I'm in it :p  I can only imagine how I'm going to feel in a couple of months...</p>

<br><br><p>Pain, suffering and a huge increase in complaining here on the board.  <img alt="wink1.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com//images/smilies/wink1.gif">  No, really, things just get steadily more uncomfortable from here on in.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Is anyone else worried about the post-Christmas/holidays let down?  This pregnancy has FLOWN so far, but ...  I'm worried that the last 6 weeks are going to seem longer than all the rest put together!</p>

<p>This pregnancy has really dragged for me, lol!  Hoping this last tri goes quickly. I'm already dealing with wicked insomnia. Blah!</p>

<p>Yes! It is hard to believe!  I am consistently measuring 2 to 3 weeks ahead and baby feels huge! It just makes me wonder if this little one will arrive early (on his own) as my last babe did!</p>

<p>I am 26 weeks and can hardly believe we're already here!  I'm a little afraid of the 3rd tri stuff, though, because I've been waking up with achey hands, and I've been more achey in general in my back, and I'm just hoping things don't get too painful.  I'm going to try to stretch more and exercise more and hope it helps some, because so far I've been enjoying pregnancy and would like to do continue to do so!! hehe</p>

<p>I think the holidays will really help time to fly by, but you're right- they say the last month of pregnancy is the longest year of your life, and it's so, so true. Especially if we won't have much to keep ourselves busy! I'm not continuing school after this quarter ends so December really is the end of the action for me. It'll be nice to have some down time at home with my daughter before the baby comes, and time to work creatively on projects for him- something I've been dying to do for months but couldn't carve out the time. As it is I'm barely tolerating sitting in class for 5.5 hours three days each week (and getting up to pee for 5 of those hours) and am just ready to fluff my nest.</p>

<p>i'm officially 28 weeks tomorrow!!! i'm so excited! my husband and i are really both feeling how quickly these next bits are going to go (december and jan will be taken up with family, moving and settling in)...and then i have a feeling february will drag for me (as i'm due at the very end) :) </p>
<p> </p>
<p>the babe feels like it's growing really well! i have to really be careful of my posture otherwise i feel like it's up in my diaphragm. then sometimes he's horizontal inside and i've got one hard part of each side of my waist! it's amazing thinking of how big the babe has grown...yet how much more we have to go! i am constantly amazed at how the body can change so much to accomodate the growth!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>as far as symptoms, the heartburn & acid reflux are getting a bit more prevalent. and again the thing with posture... sometimes nausea is coming up again particularly in the car and i think it's because i can't sit up straight enough! :(  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>i'm so looking forward to the 3rd trimester...and the arrival of the little one. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"></p>

<p>I'm 29 1/2 weeks, oh my gosh!  DS was born at 28 weeks, so we're in our first third trimester :joy :joy :joy :joy :joy.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'll never say that I'm glad I had a preemie, but I think that knowing what the alternative to the aches and pains is has been really helpful in keeping me positive.  Yes, my back hurts quite badly and my pinched nerve is no fun, but I am just so, so, SO grateful that he is in there cookin' away and getting bigger and stronger every single day.  My body remaining a safe haven for my baby has been so wonderful - now I'm just knocking on wood for it to continue!</p>
