My Last, Last Trimester


I'm 29 weeks pregnant this week and I'm officially in my very last last trimester! (more on that at the end of this post!)  It has been a while since I've done a pregnancy update and to be honest, I feel like this pregnancy has taken a a bit of a back seat this time around. Don't get me wrong, we are beyond excited for this little one to make her appearance and I feel so lucky we are able to bring another baby into this world. But I think it's almost inevitable to put off the baby prep when you have three other small children to take care of. I remember with my first pregnancy I had five different apps on my phone that I checked religiously every morning. I researched baby products and gear, nursery decor inspo, and potential baby names like crazy. While I did download a pregnancy app this time around, I think I only check it maybe every other week? Anyone else the same way with their second, third, fourth etc?

For the most part, I feel like I'm on autopilot with this one and kind of know the drill by now. However, there are so many new baby and nursing products that have come out in the last year or two that people really seem to love. I'm going to try out the new Spectra S2 pump this time around-has anyone used it? Thoughts? I used the Medela Pump In Style with both Lila and Charlie and had no complaints but I hear the Spectra is a bit more powerful? I had a Medela hospital grade one with Hunter that I had to get through the pharmacy because he was a preemie. I use this site as a good resource and ordered my last pump through them because they do it all through your insurance. You can see which pumps are covered under you insurance on the right hand side of the homepage. I would also love to know what else new moms love- please leave me a comment here or send me an email or Instagram DM!

In terms of how I'm feeling this time around, the short answer is not so great. I hate to complain and feel like I felt pretty good with Charlie up until the end but I just haven't been feeling like myself this time around. I've had constant lower back pain and I think I'm up five to six times every night and sometimes more if any of my kids end up waking up (which at least one always does). I'm trying to take it easy as much as I can but it's pretty much impossible.

As terrible as I've been feeling, I'm really trying to take in and enjoy this pregnancy because it will 100% be our last one. So many people ask if we are going to go for five because I'm one of five and the answer is a hard no. We think four is a pretty perfect number and feel like this little lady will complete our family.

I have a few more maternity and pregnancy posts coming your way soon but thought I'd share a quick update here! Xo

PS:: We still have no name for this little lady so if you have any recommendations please, please, please send them my way!
