Woohoo! Third trimester, baby!
Your baby is around 16 inches long and 2.5 pounds so pick up a random Chihuahua on the street to get an idea of what you’re dealing with. Yo quiero Taco Bell!
Have you thought about pictures?
You don’t have to get all artsy and naked if you don’t want to, but it’s kinda cool to document your pregnancy even if it’s just taking a couple of snaps yourself. Even if you’re not feeling that pretty, do it because you can’t go back if you regret not documenting it down the road.
If you’re looking for a good giggle from some rather awesome ways other people have immortalized their pregnancies, check out The Best Awkward Pregnancy Photos.

This week's to do:
Food & snacks. Whether you buy a bunch of frozen dinners, or food prep some healthy freezer meals (Skinnytaste has some excellent recipes) get yourself ready for feeding yourself when you don't want to make food. Load up on one-handed snacks and make sure you have plenty of food, litter, etc. for pets. Prep like a zombie apocalypse is on the way and you should be fine.
Know the signs of labor. The movies always make it seem very black and white but it's not always obvious. The post Yep, You Can Be in Real Labor and Not Even Know It plus, "How Do I Know if I'm in Labor?" might be helpful.
How are you feeling this week? Let me know here.
