I look a little more tired this time around too. HA. I have also started to wash newborn clothes and reorganize baby clothes into the correct bins. I want to get everything organized before Trav goes back to work. We have Kenna and Emmy’s room ready with two bed’s and we will switch Emmy into her big girl bed in September. I am not super excited about switching Emmy. Right now it is nice to keep her contained in her crib. She likes to move and I am afraid she won’t stay in her bed. Today I had my 28 week appointment and my 1 hour glucose test. I failed my 1 hour test terribly:( I failed my other 1 hour glucose test with both Kenna and Emmy, but only by small margins. This time I wasn’t even close. I pray that my 3 hour test goes well.
How far along: 28 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 15 pounds
Maternity clothes: Yes, normal clothes have no chance.
Stretch Marks: No new ones yet. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Symptoms: Perioiral dermatitis (rash on my face), peeing frequently, pelvic pain, appetite increase, very tired
Best Moment: Seeing our friends and making it to the third trimester
Miss Anything:Energy and an ice cold beverage on a hot day
Movement: Yes, with my placenta on the back of my uterus I feel a lot more jabs and kicks on the front of my tummy. With my last two pregnancies my placenta was on the front of my uterus so right behind my tummy and it acted like a cushion. It is fun to experience the full effect of the baby moving and grooving this time around.
Food cravings: Chipolte and bagels
Anything making you queasy or sick: Being in the sun for too long. Not eating every couple of hours.
Have you started to show yet? Yes, quite a bit! I am defiantly bigger this time around. It is funny because I have only gained one more pound than I did with Emmy’s pregnancy, but my belly is showing quite a bit more.
Labor Signs: no
Belly button in or out: Still half popped
Gender: No idea- But we officially have a girl’s name picked out. It is not 100 percent set in stone, but pretty close. Trav has had a boy named picked out for the last 4 years lol, so we are set there.
Wedding ring on or off? Still on.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Pretty good, just moody when I am over tired.
Baby’s Heart Rate: 156 at the last appointment
Looking forward to: My cousin’s wedding, being home this weekend, and enjoying the last month of summer. Also dare I say white pumpkin mocha’s from Caribou (I know still a long ways away, but gosh I love pumpkin everything).
