The last three months of pregnancy are quite intense for most women - the belly is getting really heavy, its more and more difficult to breathe and many women experience problems with heartburn, nausea and fatigue.
For me it was first in the really end of my pregnancy that I began feeling very tired. I felt great in the 7th and 8th month and I had much more energy than I had in the beginning of my pregnancy. I drove my bicycle every day, I went to my yoga classes and I had the energy to go grocery shopping, going for long walks and to spend lots of time in the kitchen, cooking and baking :)
The last four weeks then became a little more tiring. I could no longer walk for more than maybe 30 minutes because the pressure on the pelvis got really strong in the last four weeks of pregnancy. Some days it was that painful that I could not walk at all (towards the last few days...). In the last four weeks I also had to throw up for the first time during the entire pregnancy (most women have these kind of problems in the first trimester but there I did not experience anything like this). It had severe heartburn every night and I found it more and more difficult to get a good rest at night, because of the huge belly, the heartburn and the baby moving around in the belly.
I spent a lot of time just sitting with friends (or with my husband) drinking tea, enjoying the Spring weather or staying on the sofa, reading or studying. I enjoyed these last weeks, even though it was a little difficult sometimes with all these small aches and pains.
During the third trimester, we also bought lots of stuff for the baby, we bought a beautiful prams, my husband made a baby changer, we bought lots of small things, such as woolen blankets, a lambskin to sleep on during the day and things for the bathroom. We changed around in the appartment and slowly everything got ready for the arrival of our little girl. Since we prepared the apartment step by step, our baby became more and more present step by step.
In the end we felt sooooo ready for her to arrive and it was difficult to wait :)
