How far along: 28 weeks - Hello 3rd Trimester
I’m feeling: pretty good still - finding it a little harder to get up off the couch but other than that still feeling good!
Total weight gain: 18 lbs
Baby Rote’s size: 2 1/4 lbs and almost 15in about the size of a tropical coconut or a large eggplant
This week: We had a busy week. Saturday 7th we had our baby prep class from 8:30am - 5pm ... it was a long day but since we live an hour from the hospital we didn't want to sign up for the weekly classes. Feels good to get that class out of the way but all that talk about labor makes me really want to get our house ready for a new little one!
Steve and I both thought we noticed my belly was lower this week, and that was confirmed on Thursday when our midwife felt my stomach and thought the baby was head down already - he or she can stay that way for at least another 10 weeks!! I was relived to hear this though, since I was a breech baby I really didn't want that and have to be signed up for a c-section!
Sleep: still getting lots of it but I have noticed my hips have been hurting more and more, making it a little harder to fall asleep and get comfortable
Best moment this week: Passing my glucose test and getting a healthy baby report - Heartbeat was 140 again
Movement: the little one is still swimming around in there, a few times this week I noticed I had a lopsided belly due to how it was laying. Also I do notice more movement and jabs lower so I think it is safe to say, baby is venturing down!
Food cravings: Wednesday all I wanted was cookies and ice cream, mainly because Steve's grandma sent him home with a fresh plate of cookies and those are something you can't pass up!!
Food aversions: nothing!
Belly button in or out: still in/flat
Looking forward to: getting the nursery done - the end is in sight of our mini remodel and I have to say Steve has been amazing doing it all so far!
