3rd Trimester Update!

I'm a week late but baby boy (no name yet) and I are finally in the 3rd trimester. Still surreal, even when baby kicking all day!
My bump still looks like I'm just fat LOL! But I started wearing clothes that enhance it and sometimes I can see it!
My pregnancy was so easy for the first 2 trimesters but now I'm definitely starting to get those aches and pains. I'm a fast walker and I have to remind myself constantly to ease up on the speed.

I started seeing the Maternal Fetal Specialist and he did one of those extensive US that measure everything. Baby was doing great but he referred me to the Fetal Cardiologist with the only reason that it's an IVF pregnancy. I was skeptical about needing to go so I consulted with my OB who said they hadn't found anything abnormal to grant a visit to the cardio. So I skipped it.

I had another appointment last week with the MFM but all they did was an US. I asked the tech if they did 3D as I hadn't had a good picture since 12 weeks. She tried and tried but baby was not having it. He covered his face!!!
