Third Trimester

By all methodologies of trimester calculation, I am now officially in my 3rd trimester at 28 weeks. I have the 1 hour glucose tolerance test at my next OB appointment on Thursday, and then I have appointments every two weeks until mid-August when it moves to every week. My allergies have been alleviated by some much needed rain over the holiday weekend, so I'm feeling quite well at this point. It is astonishing to think that this little being who enjoys kicking my insides will actually be a real-live baby in a few months.

Our Fourth of July weekend was packed with three BBQ's on Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, Jeramy set-up the new Wii, which he got as an early birthday present. I wasn't overly excited about it, until he went and bought Guitar Hero. This game is completely addictive, and I spent far too many hours rockin' out with it. As a result, my house is still a mess, the dishes need to be unloaded, the laundry did not get done, and the weekly grocery shopping trip never happened. This is seriously going to disturb any hopes I had of entering a nesting phase.

Oh and the funniest thing happened Friday afternoon (or at least it was funny to me because nothing I owned was damaged). We were waiting in line to launch our boat to pick up the crab pots we had set out in the morning. Of course there were all sorts of clueless idiots launching their boats so that they could enjoy the fireworks shows that night. One guy who did not even seem to know how to back-up his boat trailer was launching a particularly large boat. Jeramy said to me "watch, he's going to lose the boat off the trailer." I dismissed his comment, but then a minute later the boat slipped of the trailer and onto the concrete with a women and a few kids inside of it even. Apparently he unhooked the safety chain when he should have waited until the boat was in the water. It took several guys to help push as they winched it back on the trailer. Jeramy snapped these pics (sorry they are a bit small...cell phone pics):

Yeah for the third trimester! You are so close now. How exciting that your appointments are increasing soon. If you didn't know this..ask for the glucose drink cold.

Enjoy the wii and the dirty house. Things will be changing soon!

Congrats on reaching the third trimester!!!

Yeah, I've heard about how addictive Guitar Hero is. Thank God we don't own a Wii. :-)

I was hearing stories all day at work about about all the Noob boaters crashing and slamming into each other. It always amazes me how people don't do a little research before they get a boat.

I hope the crab pots were nice and full!!

Yep, you're really pregnant!! :) I can't believe it's 28 weeks already. How time flies. Soon you'll be posting pics of Jillian that don't have a grainy black tinge.

My nesting phase lasted about 3 hours and all I accomplished was organizing my jewelry that had gotten tangled in the move. Damn.

Congrats for reaching such a marvelous milestone!
The boat launch thing is hilarious! We often make bets on when someone is going to screw up, too. ;)

I cant decide which is worse, 1st tri or 3rd tri, (I say that because I'm miserable and its only getting worse, Third tri sounds good to me right now until I remember how it was, then Its like, Nah, maybe 1st isn't so bad). But at least your on the count down and she'll be here soon. I'm glad this pregnancy is going well for you. I hope the third Tri treats you well as well as the other two.

That’s funny about the boat. Don’t ya just love having a camera every where you go? Lol, so you can take pictures of peoples most embarrassing moments, I'm so glad no one had a camera when I lost my tube top at a 4th of July parade 5 years ago. (at least I don’t think anybody took a pic)

I am so happy for you that you have made it into the third trimester.

Tood bad you didn't have a video of the boat thing. It could have ended up on America's funniest videos. The guy must have been a rookie when it comes to boats. That does sound funny though. I probably would have laughed. Afterall it isn't everyday you see something like that.
