After doing this post on the first trimester in GIFs, I was going to write a post with the second trimester in GIFs, but once I started thinking about it, it really boiled down to this:
Because, really, in the second tri, you feel pretty good, you can move around as you’d like, you get to rock cute maternity clothes with a bump that shows but doesn’t, like, attract signs of pity from others, and you’re going in for appointments for fun stuff — like possibly your first detailed sonogram and gender reveal — and you’re starting to set up the baby’s room.
It is a fun and exciting and cute time.
And then the third trimester comes … and things get more — ahem — real. The timeline on your to-dos get closer. Your bump gets harder to maneuver around. You get closer and closer to experiencing labor and delivery.
It’s exciting — and it’s something. Here are 14 GIFs that sum up the special time that is the third tri.
The Third Trimester in GIFs
Dropping things is the worst — because you know you have to bend down to pick them up.
Ironically, you’re also clumsy AF.
The bump makes it hard to drive.
As you go to all of the appointments.
Two words: Heart. Burn.
Unsolicited comments from EVERYONE.
Swelling. OMG, the swelling.
Finding clothes that fit.
The uncomfortableness that is sleep.
It’s fine; I’ll just pee again. For the 114th time.
So hungry. And yet you fill up so fast.
The need to get off your feet. NOW.
All the naps.
Wondering if today will be THE DAY?
What GIF would you use to sum up your third trimester? Hang in there, mamas! –Jenn
