How many weeks? I am 28 weeks! I’ve surpassed my second goal and am now looking on to being 30 weeks, then 32, and then on to FULL TERM! The end is insight and it’s so surreal!
How am I feeling? I’ve made it to my THIRD TRIMESTER now! I am feeling heavier by the day. Overall, I am a little less comfortable than I was, but still no real complaints.
I am so thankful to be this far along in my pregnancy, but its still impossible for me not to worry and constantly think about what she’d be like if she were born this week or next. I try my best to keep a positive attitude about my pregnancy, but the second I feel a pain or cramp my mind starts racing and wondering if this is the start of labor. Its getting easier now that I am 28.5 weeks, but it is still a fear that I battle with daily. I can’t help it.
Maternity: The weather is perfect this time of year, so I got to break out my maternity shorts that I haven’t worn in a few months. They were a little tighter than they were before :) Lo and I ventured out to the beach this weekend to get a little sun. I had some major anxiety over wearing a baiting suit, but I found a cute, non-maternity tankini at Target that worked out really well. I would have just worn one of my normal bikinis but neither the tops OR the bottoms are fitting currently!
Doctor’s Appointment? Yes, this week I go to my regular OB for a check up and to do my glucose test.
Last week at my Peri appointment, things went really well. My Peri told me he only needs to see me ONE MORE TIME! That last appointment will be in a month, and then I graduate! Can you believe it?? After that, I will just be monitored (like normal) by the OB.
Weight Gain? 16 pounds.
Baby Preparation? More baby preparations are underway. We have a few more things to finish in the nursery, and then I will definitely be posting pictures.
