I made it to the 3rd trimester! Finding out what you’re having at 11 weeks makes for a very long pregnancy. Having two kids that aren’t very patient doesn’t help either but the end is near. We’ll be meeting this little guy soon.
How far along: 28 weeks
Baby size: A large eggplant
Total weight gain: 21 lbs
Sleep: Not so great between bathroom breaks and back pain
Maternity clothes: Yes, I’m huge! I have a number of people ask when I’m due and when I say November, they’re shocked because I look like I’m due next week. I’ve also gotten the “are you sure it’s not twins” comments. Being 5’2, there is no where to go but out.
Food cravings: Carbs and ice cream
Food aversions: Meat. Tomato sauce gives me horrible heartburn so I’m steering clear of that too.
Symptoms: I’m being tested for Cholestasis of Pregnancy. I had this condition with Janie and I’m itching again.
Appointments: I’m seeing the perinatologist in a couple of weeks to discuss the plan. With Janie, I had amniocentesis to make sure her lungs were good and then they induced me at 36 weeks. We’ll see how my bile acids come back and go from there.
Movement: This boy is very active! He is the most active of all 3 pregnancies and favors my right side.
Gender: Boy. His name is Asa Robert.
What I miss: Sushi, wine, and sleep
Nursery progress: It’s complete. I’ve had wonderful friends and neighbors pass all kinds of stuff to us. I think we have all of the necessities covered.
