Pregnancy Week 28
I've had a busy few weeks trying to get Tinkerbell's room organised! It's now painted, and the feature wall is done, so just have to get the furniture painted and moved in, and a few accessories for the room (curtains & a rug still to find). I'm so happy with how it is coming together, I will do a nursery room tour once it is all finished!
I had to have my lovely glucose test this fornight - It made me feel so sick, I ended up getting the last two blood tests lying down as I started to get hot flushes, dizzy and feel sick. But, I'm happy to say the results came back all good, however I was very low on Iron so am now taking Iron supplements for the rest of my pregnancy and possibly afterwards.
I also feel like I've suddenly popped quite a bit, which is making things much harder to do around the house! This has encouraged me to make sure all my cupboards and things are cleaned out before I get much bigger and it becomes to awkward and uncomfortable. I'm not sure if it's nesting, panic at the idea it may not be done in time, or I'm just going stir crazy from being home more.
How Far Along? 28 Weeks - Yay for third trimester!
Baby's Size? Eggplant
Gender? It's a Girl!
Weight? 71kgs, It seems like my weight gain is starting to slow down now, but I've hit the 10kg gain which seems pretty huge to me!
Stretch Marks? Still none, I have been pretty slack about using anything, so beginning to massage in cocoa butter every night, and some bio oil around my belly piercing as I've heard they are prone to stretching.
Maternity Clothes? I now actually own a pair of maternity pants! Not going to lie, they scare me a little, but are so much more comfortable than jeans! When I'm at home I usually wear yoga pants or tights.
Wedding Rings on or off? On
Belly Ring In or Out? Out! It was starting to get a little sore as it was getting knocked as it angled out more, so decided to take it out and cross my fingers that the hole stays open for the next 12 weeks.
Sleep? Still quite good, although I'm finding I'm not sleeping as long - only 6 or 7 hours.
Cravings? Lots of fresh fruit and veg!
Labour Signs? No
Symptoms? My energy levels are very up and down - probally due to lack of iron, but I'm also starting to feel more limited in what I can get done - this is the first I've started to really feel pregnant.
Mood? A little stressed recently, I'm really looking forward to all of my to do lists being finished.
Movement? All the time now, although not big kicks like she was doing before, so can't really feel from the outside.
Moment of the Week: Having the nursery painted!
Driving Me Crazy: Still being limited - it makes it difficult to not be able to do as much as I'm used to in a day.
Freak Outs: None, starting to hang out for her to arrive.
Looking Forward To: My baby shower, and having the nursery finished.
It was freezing today trying to take these bump update photos - It was so windy and there was NO way I was getting out of my oversized jumper. I'm pretty sure you can tell just by looking that I wanted to hurry up and get back inside where it was warm!
