Welcome third trimester. I'm so glad to see you! Not because I think this pregnancy will get any easier (I know better, this is not my first rodeo), but because you bring with you the end-in-sight.

Your arrival means that soon I will be carrying a baby in my arms instead of my belly (a state of being I much prefer). Your very arrival brings much needed hope in my heart.

So even though I know you will slow me down, ramp up the heartburn and making shaving, shoe tying, and nail painting difficult I welcome you with open arms.
