28 weeks~ baby i2

DATE:  July 25, 2013

How far along: 28 weeks = THIRD trimester yipppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Total Weight Gained:
  At my last appointment on July 9th, I'd gained 3lbs more pounds of my original 8 lost, so still down 2lbs from the beginning.

How big is baby?  "your baby's the size of an eggplant!"
"Putting on layers of fat, your baby now weighs in around 1.5 to 2.5 pounds and measures about 13.6 to 14.8 inches. . "

How baby is growing:
  • "She's starting to develop more fat, so her wrinkly skin will start to get smoother."
  • "Her lungs are mature enough that she'd probably survive if she was born now."
  •  "She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes."
  •  "With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb."

    Maternity Clothes:  I can still wearing regular comfy pants (read: no buttons/zippers) and big shirts for the most part. If I put on real pants/shorts, then they are most definitely maternity!  A lot of dresses and skirts oh and pajammies of course.

    Sleep: I'm still worn out all the time.  The aches and pains at the end of the day make getting to sleep difficult and bedtime is usually when my heartburn kicks in.

    Best Pregnancy Moment of the Week:     Hitting the 3rd trimester!

    Movement: She's a mover! She doesn't really kick me though, she jumps and tumbles.

    Food Cravings:  frozen coke, Lucky Charms, chocolate cheesecake, cherries, Chic-Fil-A. Apparently, we're representing the letter C these last few weeks.

    Food Aversions:
    A lot of nights absolutely nothing sounds good for supper, so Lucky Charms it is.

    Gender:  our second precious baby girl

    Symptoms:  irritability still, exhaustion, lots of low pressure especially at the end of the day when I'm trying to go to bed. It's super painful. :(   I failed my 1 hour glucose screen with a big score of 156 (135 was passing).  So last Friday, I did the 3 hour test and passed it! yay! That makes all 3 kids that I didn't pass the 1 hour and did the 3 hour.

    What I miss: not feeling exhausted all the time...although I know this isn't going to go away for many, many years to come haha

    What I'm looking forward to: Being settled in our new house, getting the girls' room situated and furniture painted, finally picking a middle name for this girl!  Also, I go back to the dr. next week, then start my bi-weekly visits!

    27 weeks, 2 days
    28weeks 1 day
