27 Weeks and some goals

A couple of days ago I hit 27 weeks of pregnancy. It's hard to believe I start the third trimester next week; time sure is flying by.

I'm starting to feel more ready for this baby to come. We have pretty much all of the basic necessities - a car seat, a bassinet, diapers & wipes, clothes, toiletries, etc. But on the other hand I know we still have tons to do before he gets here! Details of my maternity leave are still in the works, and I keep meaning to sign up for a childbirth class (although I did finally find out my hospital offers one, so at least making some progress there haha) but things are starting to fall into place to help us prepare for little alien baby.

Considering this is my first pregnancy and that in addition to building a baby I have the responsibility of being the family breadwinner, I have decided to take things as they come and try to have a low-stress pregnancy. I'm usually very hard on myself and a bit of a perfectionist, so I've decided to keep my goals for this pregnancy down to the bare minimum:

1) Keep the baby cooking inside until 38 weeks
2) No vomiting
3) Keep my "innie"

So far, so good!
