Pregnancy Update: 28 weeks

So if you've paying very close attention to my pregnancy updates, you might notice something a bit off about this update. My last update was July 25th and I was 25 weeks along, it is now August 6th and I am 28 weeks! How did that happen? Well, I'll tell you. My wonderful, amazing OB moved my due date up 6 days.

I was in a bad mood at my last appointment because I had to wait over an hour to be seen for what should have been a 5 minute check up. Come to find out, almost all of the staff had called in sick that day and the doctor, who I had never seen before, was doing everything without a nurse. Oh and he was the only doctor in the office when they normally have at least 2. So when he finally called me back, he had to do my weight and blood pressure checks himself. I have never seen a doctor do that before and he obviously doesn't get much practice because it took him a bit longer than it would have taken any nurse! So even though I was being a little sympathetic to him, I was still grumpy from having to wait so long.

We discussed how I've been feeling and I then confirmed with him that I wanted to schedule my c-section and would love to know the date as soon as possible so Mike and my parents could get it on their work schedules. After talking with him for a few minutes about the fact that Connor has been measuring over a week and a half big at each one of my growth ultrasounds and my desire to not be in the hospital on my birthday, he decided to reevaluate my due date which had previously been November 3rd and move it up to October 29th. He certainly made up for making me wait an hour to see him!

I am thrilled and terrified at the same time! In one day, I lost an entire week that I thought I had to prepare for Connor's arrival! But at the same time, I will get to meet him one week sooner and will be home and settled with him by my birthday.

This pregnancy has really flown by and it's crazy to think that in just 11 short weeks, we will be a family of 4!

I didn't get the energy today to take a new picture so here's one from this past Wednesday.
27 weeks 2 days

How far along? 28 weeks

Weight gain/loss: 14 lbs. So much better than where I was with Grace at this point and right on track with where I wanted to be.

Feeling:  Okay overall. I have horrible heartburn and indegestion if I forget to take my daily Zantac dosage and occasionally I'll have a day or two of nauseau. I am burning up all of the time and my emotions are still all over the place.

Maternity clothes? Yes.

Sleep: Not great. It's hard to get comfortable and I wake up sore from any position I try to lay in. I'm having the weirdest dreams!

Food cravings: Pizza Hut, Coke (the soft drink!) and club sandwiches

Gender: Boy!
Movement? Non stop. He's scaring me a little bit. If this amount of activity is what I can expect after he's born, we're in trouble!

What I miss? Being able to sleep comfortably and turkey sandwiches!

Best moment this week: Getting my due date moved up!

What I'm looking forward to: Having a relaxing week with Grace. And another growth ultrasound in a few weeks

Next Appointment: August 16th. I've moved up to every 2 week appointments now! Not looking forward to my gestational diabetes screening at this next appointment.
