I’ll do a weekly bump update so I can look back and see how things progress and what was happening at various points along the way.
Ummm, we have reached the Third Trimester people. Holy Crap!!!!
So far things have been going smoothly- never been sick, haven’t gained much weight, sleeping pretty well still (sometimes with the help with unisom), no crazy cravings, and I don’t think I’ve been an insufferable bitch with mood swings. (Feel free to ask Price about that.) The only big complaint I have is that my right hip hurts, but it has hurt on and off over the past few years and I think it really has to do with wearing flip flops all summer. Can’t expect to not have an issues when I have shitty arches and wear shows with no support. Also, my nose has decided to bleed anytime I blow my nose this weekend. Not really a big deal but annoying since I’m mainly afraid of having blood on my face and not knowing it. Lovely.
Football has started again and I’m really excited to lounge around when we watch the games. Lazy Sundays are just the best. The Giants are playing tonight, hence my super awesome shirt above.
We’re picking up the crib tomorrow night. The room needs a lot of room before we assemble it but I’m still really excited about it.
And then I get my sugar test on Tuesday. I’m not exited about that.
28 Week Bump Update
Current Due Date: 12/1/13- BUT I’ll get the date of my scheduled C-section at this week’s appointment, which will occur the week of Thanksgiving at 39 weeks **UPDATE: scheduled for 11/25!**
Weight Gain: 8lbs I think… my scale and the dr’s scale are way off so I’m waiting for my appointment on Tuesday morning for their reading ***UPDATE: at my Tuesday appointment it showed I was up +6 total***
Stretch Marks: none
Belly Button: still glad there has been no change
Clothing: regular pants when I use the belly bands and still in some regular tops but adding in more of the new maternity clothes I got with my mom last weekend
Cravings/Aversions: Still no aversions but A.D.ID.A.S= All Day I Dream About Sugar! Peaches, Twizzlers, gummy bears, and piles of cookies.
Sleep: having some trouble sleeping so i’m taking Unisom again
Mood: had a lovely cry fest Friday night before Price left to go back home for the weekend with the pup. It stresses me out when Price drives so far (5.5+ hrs) in the dark and I hate sleeping alone so I mucked up his shirt with sob tears. Then basically passed out on the sofa from a long week and wrecked nerves.
Movement: lots more is noticeable now. The Bean seems to like settling in on my left side
Milestones: now into the 3rd trimester!!
What I miss: wine! bought a bottle of white wine to use while making dinner on Friday night and it took all my strength not to guzzle the whole thing directly from the bottle
What I am looking forward to: only 11 more days until we are on our ‘babymoon’
