28 Weeks

UPDATE: I passed my glucose test with flying colors. Not even remotely close the the "cut off." Since sugar is my enemy these past months, I would have been SHOCKED outta my pants if I didn't pass. Also, we met our midwife for the first time, and realized as soon as she walked in, that she is the same woman who taught the Preparing for Birth class we took at Woodwinds prior to Sophia's birth 5 years ago! We enjoyed our visit, and I am glad I made the switch!

Things are getting ever more uncomfortable. My hips ache all the time now. Ache, hmm... not a strong enough word. Shooting burst of radiating pain is a better description. Baby must have had a growth spurt over the past two weeks and gotten huge and... hard. It literally feels like I have a solid basketball in my belly, and I can't bend over anymore without a big struggle. The muscles over my belly are stretching and aching as well. And because of the weight in my belly, my back is perma-sore as well.
My stomach is still as touchy as ever. More often than not, after I eat I feel mildly sick to my stomach. It is the rare (HAPPY) occasion when I feel normal after eating.

Along with baby getting bigger, the kicks and movements are much stronger now. Still the most inactive baby so far, but s/he moves enough now that I don't worry anymore.

I have my first appointment with the midwife on Wednesday, and my glucose test. I keep telling myself that I only have about 10 weeks left... sometimes that's encouraging. Sometimes not.

On a brighter note, I am almost finished with my baby boy and baby girl blankets that I have been working on over the past two months! I will post a pic of each when they are finished.

Do you think it's possible your baby is part vampire?
I'm just putting that out there.

More likely part werewolf... Jared is always burning hot... and hairy.
