Week 28 Recap: Just Chillin'

Thursday, September 18, 2014

Week twenty eight was fairly uneventful, minus a glucose test, which I was so freaked out about giving blood for that I forgot to be worried about the actual results. But, we passed so...yay!!

The belly button has officially popped! (That took longer than I thought.)

My back pain has pretty much disappeared, thank goodness. She must have outgrown the spot that was causing major nerve pain but fingers crossed it's gone for good.

Acid reflux is creeping up sometimes. Usually if I lie down too soon after eating dinner.

Oh, and the best part of this week? Seeing our girl on a 3D ultrasound! I'm keeping the image to ourselves (wouldn't want to ruin the surprise!) but if you've ever seen my husband sleeping, let's just say she's nailed it.

I'm feeling so grateful for having an enjoyable pregnancy thus far. My "symptoms" are mostly things I can somewhat control, like eating dinner early enough, or drinking tons of water to keep the swelling to a minimum. I know not every mom is so lucky and I really sympathize. Someone must be looking out for me because Heaven knows I'm too consumed with freaking out mentally preparing for our time in the hospital to worry with other things. (I'm not scared of the birth, more like loss of control with doctors, needles, or possible interventions. These issues run deep and long and that's other story for another day.) But I'm convincing myself that this baby "gets me" and we'll be partners in this to create a positive experience.

Hope you've all had a happy week. We're headed to TN to visit with family and friends and celebrate the wee one's first shower - yippee!
