HELLO 3rd Trimester!- 28 Week Pregnancy Update

Hello 3rd trimester! Seriously this has gone extremely fast! Jayce will be here before we know it.....that gives me a slight panic attack thinking about it!

Loving maxi skirts right now, makes me feel less like a beached whale! 


Weight Gain/Loss: Let's not currently discuss this, may have shed a tear at the doctor's today........
How Far Along: 28 Weeks
Fruit of the Week: Baby is the size of a head of cauliflower and weighing around 2 1/2 pounds!
Baby Buys: Nothing.......sort of pathetic, but I'm having a hard time justifying buying anything at this point.
Movement: Kicks directly aimed to the right side of my back, yes my back! At the doctor's appointment today he told me how he was kicking like crazy, and all I felt were rumbles and shooting pains in my back. Thanks little guy for being difficult!
Dreams: I'm slightly paranoid that I'm going to pee the bed, because I'm dreaming of peeing ALL THE TIME!
Position: No clue, I forgot to ask today and the doctor didn't mention it.
Cravings: Salad, garlic and ice cream....not all together though!
Shit that Sucks: I officially said good-bye to my lady garden today. I've been getting by with leaning one way or another to make sure she's still there and intact.....today there was no angle to which she was visible! See ya in a few months lady parts!
Struggles: Yes I know I talk about my sweater puppets a lot, but they have a complete mind of their own. I'm pretty sure that when my stomach is no longer holding them up I will have to get my nips pierced in order to attach straps to them so they aren't constantly looking at the ground. I fear that I will have to tuck them into my pants if I don't.......Turns out implants are powerless against pregnancy hormones and gravity.
Successes: Choked down my glucose drink today! Woot woot! I'm celebrating by having ice cream before I find out my result tomorrow. I passed the first time last time, so I'm hopeful that I will again.
Mood Swings: I don't know if it's the weather or what, but I feel AMAZING! It's like I've taken some sort of happy/calming pill, not much gets me worked up lately. I think my husband is quite thrilled about this!
Milestones: Third trimester, glucose testing, going to appointments every two weeks from here on out...... all sorts of things to celebrate!
Funny: Let me preface this by saying that my husband is a very loving man, he just tends to forget to turn on his filter from time to time. With that being said, while getting ready to get into the hot tub I was complaining about my swimsuit bottoms "cutting into my love handles." Without even blinking, my husband asked, "At this point aren't they more like oh shit handles?"..........he back peddled quickly from this.
Inside the Hormonal Brain: I'm trying to not get caught up on this whole pregnancy weight gain thing....but seeing numbers on a scale that I would rather not see is slightly depressing. And then on top of it, today I was told that I'm measuring (belly size) on the large side of normal. With Layne I was always right on or small. So either I have a huge baby or a shit ton of amniotic fluid, I'm going with the first one. Especially since the doctor then said that he wouldn't be surprise if I go into labor on my own before my due date because of the size........yay for hopes of a successful VBAC, but boo for a huge ass baby wrecking my vagina!
