28 weeks


 
How far along: 28 weeks, 4 days

Weight gain/loss: +18 lbs. to 154

Maternity clothes: Gap maternity tanks are my new thing, along with all my dresses still. I can't beat the dresses, they are the best!

Sleep: Sleep got rough again. With having to get up a few times during the night to pee, its hard to get back into a comfortable position each time, which is hard.

Best moment this week: The boys have started moving around a lot more than usual and both get the hiccups on the regular. I love watching my belly when they get super crazy.

Food cravings: fruit, Publix chocolate chip muffins, frozen Greek Yogurt bars

Food aversions: no real aversions, still can't eat normal portions. Just have to keep eating little a few times a day.

Movement: lots and lots! I love feeling them move. I am going to miss this the most about pregnancy. Sometimes its actually soothing to me.

Gender: BOYS!
 
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks, and a few more meltdowns, mostly about not being able to get comfortable. It seems no matter what I do (sitting, standing, laying down, walking) I can't get comfortable, and this gets frustrating. BUT its all worth it!

Miss anything: Being able to go out of the house without feeling like I am going to keel over.

Looking forward to: Hubbs and I are going to try and attempt a little time at the beach on Sunday. My OB says the best position for me to be in right now is the "reclining" position. Both of our beach chairs recline and we have a pretty big umbrella for shade, so we'll see how it goes. I just need a little time out of the house. Sunday also marks a year since our miscarriage. I figured the beach would be a great place to reflect on how lucky we are and how things have changed in a year. I don't think we ever would have imagined a year ago, that we would be where we are today. We are so blessed and have learned to trust God's timing and plans.

Monday we have another Peri appointment! Excited to see the littles and hear the report on them! We also have a C-section class that night to learn exactly what to expect the day of our surgery.
 

Baby/Momma Update:

  Baby update

 I had a OB appointment on Tuesday and both babies heart rates were great! That's about the only report I get on them at the OB, more info on the babes next week.

 
Momma update

 As for me, the OB did another Fetal Fibronectin (I learned the name this time, thanks Brother). Still waiting for the results, but hopefully no news is good news and it will come back negative and let me know my body has no plans of going into labor in the next 2 weeks.
 
My belly measured at 34 weeks, so I am still 6 weeks ahead according to my body:)

I also asked about this burning/stinging pain right at the top of my belly on the right side. I've had this since my belly has started growing, but it got really bad this week (actually waking me up in the middle of the night) so I asked about it. My OB pressed on to make sure it wasn't painful to the touch (it wasn't).  But she did say it could be my gall bladder, since that's where it gets shoved during pregnancy. So we just need to keep an eye on it.

Have a great weekend!
