I've been a bit confused. (Admittedly, this is easily done.) Some books/websites/people say the third trimester starts at week 26, others at 27, 28 or 29. However it seems that 27 is the most widely agreed upon. I am going to go with that, and as today marks 27 full weeks of pregnancy, it also therefore marks the start of my third trimester.

Aptly marked by sheer exhaustion.

I will not be posting any pictures of myself today because I look a fright. I have dark circles under my eyes, my hair looks like a bird's been dutifully turning it into a nest, and ultimately, I just can't be arsed to pick up the camera. Why I picked today to wash our massive quilt cover is beyond me. I'm shattered from just trying to hang the thing up to dry.

In place of pictures, however, I can say that my bump has now shifted from a B-shape to a D-shape (something I'm quite proud of) and, as you may have gathered above, the glow I enjoyed for a total of three weeks is already thing of the past.

Also, Little One is as bad a hiccuper as her mother.

Officially, I am now looking at 13 weeks left of pregnancy. Two things. One: I can't believe I'm already at a point where it's acceptable to be counting down instead of up. And two: despite being uber excited to meet this little growing person, it sounds entirely too close for comfort...



  1. Oh congratulations on reaching the third trimester! I opted for 27 weeks as a start for it too :) And get ready for all encompassing exhaustion... everything is an effort now ;)

  2. Haha thanks ladies! It's all getting that bit more exciting now! :D x

  3. Stumbled upon this post again - how interesting it is to see where you were and how I can relate now. The hiccups, oh, the hiccups! He has hiccup fits 2 or 3 times a day. It was cute at first but it does get kind of grating after so many...

    In 7 weeks I will have him in my arms like you have yours now though, will have to make a point to go back and read your experiences (c:
