Baby O’s Size: Eggplant – about 14.4”, 2.4 lb
Baby O’s developments: He is gaining fat and filling out that wrinkly skin. Lungs are almost fully mature!
Currently Craving: Cold fruity drinks and chocolate chip cookies
Weight gain this week: 1.6 lb (19.4 lb total)
Sleep & Dreams: Sleep has been pretty good lately! No complaints.
How I am feeling: As soon as I hit week 28, I got a headache that lasted for a day. My belly seems to be getting bigger every day, and I find myself adjusting positions on the couch to keep comfortable. My appetite is still about the same as it ever was, even though I keep gaining weight. Maybe eating cookies at night doesn’t help, but I NEED them! Hehe. I don’t feel prepared at all for Wyatt to be here, we still need to set up his room, yikes.
Evidence of Pregnancy Brain: I actually got the calculator out to do 850 minus 2. I saw the answer (848, DUH) and then realized what I had done. That is bad!
Movement: I’m starting to feel more squirming movements. I guess he is running out of room in there.
Appointments: Had my 28 week appointment yesterday! I gained 9 lbs on their scale since the last visit, ugh. The nurse at the doctor’s office said “I think you hit your growth spurt”. She assured me it was normal so that made me feel a tad bit better. I got my Rhogam shot, which was not bad. It felt like a sharp pinch for a few seconds and that’s it. I passed my Glucose Test! But my iron is slightly low so I will start taking an iron supplement. Wyatt’s heartbeat was a strong 153. I come back in 3 weeks for my next appointment.
Exercise: I worked out 2 times (ish). I did Tracy Anderson Pregnancy Project Month 5, and walked almost 2 miles around San Fran on Saturday. I’ll talk about my San Fran overnight trip tomorrow!
Innie or outie: Innie
Stretch marks: None yet, woohoo!
Rings on or off: On
Maternity wear: The Gap at Union Square in San Francisco had a decent maternity section. I bought a sweater, t-shirt, and pair of jeans.
Baby related purchases: Started his book collection! My fave is Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site, especially since Jay is in the industry.
