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):
