28 Weeks

How far along? Some days I can't believe I've gotten through 28 whole weeks, other days I feel as though I've been pregnant for 3 years.

Size of baby? Baby is almost 17 inches tall and close to 3 pounds

How I'm changing? Officially 20 pounds gained according to my doc appointment this morning. Honestly, it feels like 55.  Sciatica continues... feeling uncomfortable and not sleeping that great at night now.... is it December? Ha. 

Doctor visits? I had the glucose test this morning and I didn't think it was bad at all. Tastes like hi-c fruit punch to me. Maybe my lifelong addiction to sweet tea prepped me for it, but I easily downed it in 3 minutes. I would have been shocked if I didn't like something MADE OF SUGAR. Ha! I should get results back tomorrow.... fingers crossed I passed. I also had to get vaccines today... so not the most fun doctor visit ever. But, it's over at least. I now start going every two weeks for check-ups. 

Movement? Often, and the kicks just get harder and harder. Baby girl has officially discovered my rib cage... Not sure what to think of that! :)

Best moment of the week? I got an invite to my first shower! Soooooo excited! My best friends Ashley and Melissa and my "second mom" Bonnie are throwing it for me. I can't wait to see everyone! I have to admit, receiving this invitation, seeing her name in print, and knowing it's fast approaching made it all SO REAL. I may have gotten slightly teary eyed. There's no hope for me. :)

So, not a whole lot changed this week. Getting bigger and bigger... seriously ready for December!

You look great and my oh my the doctor visits sure have changed. No glucose tests or vaccines when I was pregnant. You will have so much fun at your shower.
