Hello 3rd Trimester!
How far along? 28 Weeks
Size? Large Eggplant
Weight gain/loss? +15 lbs
Stretch Marks? Just 2 tiny ones from prior pregnancies
Sleep? Visiting the bathroom about 3 times/night which is making me crazy, but sleeping great in between.
Best Moment of the Week? My 28 week appointment was pretty amazing. I was preparing for the worst, given this is when things started going south (for the second time) with my last pregnancy. I was hopeful since I'm on the 17P injections this time around, but my contractions are crazy all the time, so I can't help but worry. My prayers were answered when I heard my doc say, "thick and closed". Best moment of the week, hands down.
Miss anything? Sleeping all night. It's on ongoing joke every night before bed when I ask Andy if he thinks maybe THIS will be the night I sleep all the way through just one more time. It never is and we just laugh that it will never be for quite some time!!
Movement? His favorite times to wiggle around are right before I go to sleep for the night and the minute I wake up each morning. The other night I woke up to a crazy man literally having a dance party in there...never in my life have I felt a baby moving that crazy!
Food Cravings? Clementines cold out of the fridge...all day long!
Anything make you queasy or sick? Hunks of meat.
Labor signs? I'm not fairly certain anymore...it's a fact. My uterus hates me. Constant contractions mainly in the evenings. Just a couple of nights ago they were every 4-5 minutes for over an hour before I finally just hoped for the best and went to bed. Definitely a huge reassurance at my appointment though that they don't seem to be causing any cervical change!
Symptoms? HEARTBURN. HEARTBURN. HEARTBURN. I'm seriously on a steady diet of Tums, which only helps very temporarily. I started Nexium yesterday and am hoping that works better than the Prilosec, and if not I may have to move onto the prescription stuff.
Belly button in or out? In...it's like a cave, so it won't be coming out anytime soon!
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood? Good most of the time!
Looking forward to? A continued healthy and normal pregnancy.
