YAY 3rd trimester!!!

Week of JULY 19th  Happy Birthday Alley!!

28 weeks 1 day
after a LONG day at work :(
How Far Along? 28 weeks, YAY 3rd Trimester (sorry for the day late post, it was a long day yesterday)

Due Date:  October 11th

Total weight gain/loss: not quite sure but I'm betting between 24-30

Maternity Clothes? yup and I love them. I love the spandex I got and tank tops. They are a life saver in this heat!!

Stretch Marks? Yup and I hate them more than anything. And I swear I get more each week. It's uber depressing

Sleep?  What a funny joke!

Best Moment of this Week?  My baby shower this weekend. I have the best and most generous family ever! We got all sorts of goodies for baby, it is becoming more and more real as we look at all the fun stuff we got. Also not baby related, we got a new (to us) grill from my parents friends, and I passed my first exam in my leadership clinical. 
I have a worst moment of the week too: Finding out I failed my 1 hour glucose tolerance test. You have to be under 140, I was 142 and I SWEAR she drew it early!!! UGGG now I have to go get the 3 hr one! I'm so bummed, but please pray I DON'T have Gestational Diabetes!!!

Movement? Still moving but I swear I freak myself out over it. I have several friends who are preggo and they say they feel their babies move all the time. Either I'm too busy to notice or my baby is just not as active. It really makes me worried sometimes. I still feel little one at least 10 times a day, but I heard you're supposed to feel them like 5x an hour. and I know there are times where I'll go several hours without feeling him/her. I freak myself out so much over it that I'm convinced my baby is handicaped. How retarded am I?? I guess it's just my worst fears coming to play. 

Food cravings? The only thing I craved was white bean hummus from Houlihans

Food aversions? nope

Gender? I'm still keeping you guessing, today I'm indifferent on the sex. I don't know

Labor Signs?  Contractions still happening daily. but at less frequent intervals, they are getting more intense though. 

There is definitely a baby bump there

Belly Button In or Out? Still in and I really don't think it's going to pop out, but I think I found a stretch mark on it...dang it!

What I miss? no stretch marks

What I am looking forward to: My final weekend off before graduation!!!!!! HOLY COW! Plus I have a dear friend getting married and my cousins little girls 2nd birthday party. it's going to be a busy weekend, if I make it out of these next 2 days of work alive. 

What I'm NOT looking forward to is the 3 hour glucose test on Saturday morning. I have to do it then because its the only day I have off until Aug 6th! and so I have to get up super early on my only day to sleep in to go get it because I have to leave around 1 to go to my friends wedding. BLAHHHHHHHHHH

Size of the Baby:

Baby's now the size of an eggplant!
Baby's lungs are mature enough that, if born right now, she has a pretty good chance of surviving (with help from medical technology). Her skin is still pretty wrinkly (one byproduct of living in amniotic fluid) but will smoothen as fat continues to deposit.

  1. I failed the 1 hour test (just barely like you) with both boys. Somehow I passed it this time around. But I have always passed the 3 hour test. I think you'll be fine. :) But it does suck!
