How far along are you?
I'm in my 28th week and in my third trimester...just a couple days from week 29! Cannot believe it's 11ish weeks until I see my sweet baby.
How big is baby?
Baby is about 15 inches long and weighs 2.5 lbs. At 29 weeks he's the size of a pineapple!
I'm still feeling pretty good! My energy levels aren't as high as the second trimester but I found out my iron is low so I'm going to start on some iron supplements and I'm sure I'll notice my energy levels going up.
I don't have gestational diabetes PTL! I tried doing the two hour test but ended up puking the drink up after 15 minutes lols! So my doctor let me do the 1 hour one and I passed..yaaaay!
If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen this post from last night. I had my ultrasound on Monday and am happy to report that my placenta has moved waaaay up!! Praise God! No bed rest or pelvic rest and no forced c-section! And it was sooo sweet to see my little man. They doubled check he was indeed a he and oh boy, yes he is...lols. We also got the sweetest shot of his face and found out he has a ton of hair already! The technician even told us he is going to be crazy cute when he comes out #proudmom... but seriously how cute is this photo of his face..those lips and cheeks...my goodness #heartmelting
My appetite has defs increased! I'm finishing full meals now and constantly crave sweets. Still haven't had any weird cravings though!
I've still been walking to work about 3x a week. It takes me about 35 minutes (instead of my usual 30!) but I always feel better! I've still been going to the gym about 2x per week, if my weeks aren't too crazy. Still trying to get my squats and lunges on!! I had a massage the other week and my goodness, that was the best decision. My hips and back hurt so much before and since then, they haven't hurt at all! Can't wait for my next one :)
I'm wearing a mix of tight shirts and loose shirts. Honestly, it depends on my mood and whether I'm up for people commenting on my bump. It's so funny, I don't feel that large and some people make comments like "Are you sure there aren't two in there?" and "You still have how long to go!!?" It makes me wonder if people have ever seen a pregnant person before...lol. I'm okay with it, and know they're not trying to be rude but sometimes it gets annoying so I opt for looser shirts if I'm tired and know I don't have a lot of patience that day ha!
What I'm looking forward to:
Starting our birthing classes in two weeks! We've signed up for classes at the hospital and I'm so looking forward to learning and meeting other parents to be! I'm also looking forward to spending more time with James as this month has been insane! Mind you, next month is going to be crazy as we are planning on reno-ing our bathroom and setting up the nursery (weeeeee!!!)
Thank you again for all your prayers and your encouragement!
