I’m officially starting to feel under the gun. We’re at 28 weeks! That’s 7 lunar months and I’m freakin’ out. Actually, I’m now 2 days away from 29 weeks preggo…I’m so late with this post.
It’s the 3rd trimester!!
I’m feeling great. Cramping is there, but I’m not worried about it. When it gets super bad I just lay down. Not much bleeding to speak of so I’m really glad about that. I’m starting to get migraines rather frequently though. Not. Cool. And the round ligament pain and heartburn is extreme at times. Other than THAT…I’m feeling great!
Was your 3rd trimester extra annoying, too?
Went to the doc today and talked my way out of having to do the glucose test. I’ll have to do it on Tuesday and there will be no getting out of it. Thankfully it’s the 1 hour version, and not the 3 hour one. Last time it wasn’t so bad, though.
How did you handle that cloyingly sweet glucose test?
Trying to prepare Rohan for a little sister. Finding books that don’t start with something negative (the older sibling being jealous, then having a change of heart) is hard. I’ll have to search online. There’s no need to introduce bad feelings about having a new baby in the house. He’ll be plenty jealous enough on his own I’m sure.
Any book suggestions for me? Or suggestions in general?
Told doc of my decision to do a repeat c-section instead of trying for a vbac. She said it would be scheduled for 39 weeks. It feels so odd that I’m scheduling a human being’s birth. But outside of the weirdness, there’s something comforting about it.
Did you have a planned c-section? Would you ever?
OK, This week’s survey:
How Far Along? 28 Weeks 5 days! Time is FLYING

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 21 lbs gained so far!!
Maternity Clothes: My maternity clothes are getting used for all their worth.
Stretch Marks: Not sure but I think I may have gotten more on each side I’m still using that Bio Oil though, and praying!
Sleep: I’m not sleeping well at all. Turning over sucks. I can’t get comfy. Turning over takes half an hour, I feel like I’m disturbing John with all my moving and adjusting of my pillow fortress without which I would die.
Food Cravings: Are you ready for this? …. SALAD. WTF?! And hot chocolate all day long.
Best Moment This Week: Best moment this week was not exactly baby related, we found a new place and it’s making everything seem much better!

Labor Signs: none! and I don’t want any at all.
Belly Button In Or Out? Out as ever.
What I Miss: Sleep, glorious sleep! Will I ever have you again?
What I Am Looking Forward To: Our next sonogram (at 32 weeks) Touring the hospital, finding furniture for this little girl and finding a way to make it fit in her and Roey’s new room. Buying everything we need for BabyH2.0 and feeling prepared (well, as prepared as can be) for our new addition.
Milestones: Hitting the 3rd trimester is the biggest milestone. 7 months along and my lil bunny is doing great!
Weekly Wisdom: Do what’s best for YOU.
