Little G's movements have been pretty unpredictable since I turned 28 weeks. I hadn't felt him much on a regular basis since turning 28 weeks but once I hit that mark, and the third trimester, it's as if he woke up from a long nap and really started to make his presence known. Often times it's as if he's punching or kicking me, which doesn't hurt at all but is quite amusing. I can feel what appears to be his little hand or feet and if I press on it slightly, he'll move it somewhere else.
As most baby websites say, I've definitely noticed a pattern in his movements. He'll move near the time I wake up, usually 7-8:30 ish and then at night from 9pm on. He hasn't kept me up in the middle of the night, thank God! I also can often see my belly move from the outside and feeling his bigger movements is really mind blowingly awesome. It's just a reminder that there is a little being inside me and it is so surreal! The most frustrating thing about his movements is that whenever I bring someone to my belly to feel him moving, he stops moving completely or does this pathetic one tap thing and doesn't ever continue!! And of course, as if on cue, he continues when the person walks away. What a stubborn little bugger! oh and he must also be psychic because he's moving a crazy ton now as we speak :-)
I've been eating a ton more sweets than usual. Take today for example, oh and yesterday, I had a vanilla and chocolate ice cream cone after lunch and need something sweet usually after every meal (except breakfast).
Still getting full pretty quickly but I notice I'm eating a lot more than my second trimester.
I've gained about 20 pounds so far and I plan to gain about 10 more. My feelings about weight gain are really minimal since I know it's all for the baby, and as cliche as that sounds it couldn't be more true!
Lots of baby toys, swaddles, teether

T's scallops were perfectly cooked and delicious but I still preferred my dish over his, ha ha! :-)
