3rd trimester

I've entered the 3rd trimester. On the one hand it feels like I've been pregnant forever (I started working on this pregnancy March 2013). On the other hand, I can't believe it's already third trimester. For the most part this pregnancy has been much easier than #1. I'm really tired still but otherwise not many problems. I get hip pains that make walking tough. Especially after my prenatal yoga class, I think due to relactin making me over stretch my pelvic muscles. Today for the first time I have tailbone pain, which I've read is normal during pregnancy, especially later in pregnancy. But wow it made it hard to walk. So I scheduled my first prenatal massage of this pregnancy (I went a lot during #1 due to ribs popping out). I hope it helps. I've also started taking more baths to help the aches and pains. Tough to do when I work outside the home 40 hours per week and want to spend time with DD1.

But the good news is the baby is doing well! I haven't had an u/s since week 20 and I'm jonsing to find out how big she's gotten. I'll ask next on appointment when I'll get to see her again.
