At 28 weeks, I'm now in my third trimester. And whoa boy is it starting to feel like it. Though I've gained less weight than last time (can I get a woot woot) & my belly is smaller, I am starting to feel BIG. I had a doctor appointment and ultrasound this morning. I won't be posting any pictures this time because the baby just wasn't cooperating. They pictures I brought home are mostly shapeless black and white blotches. The most exciting news is that I passed my 1-hour glucose test with flying colors. When I was pregnant with Harper, my 1-hour test came back as "borderline", though my fasting 4-hour test was normal. This time my levels were great. What a relief... it's just one less thing for us to worry about, and we'll take everything we can get.
Baby actual: 28 weeks
Head: 29 weeks (no surprise... we are a big-headed family!)
Abdomen: 26-27 weeks
Long Bones: 19-20 weeks
Estimated weight: 1lb 4oz +/-4oz (average at this age would be 2.2 lbs)
The numbers speak for themselves. The stress and worries are definitely up a notch, but I am still so excited for this baby. I suppose life isn't supposed to be easy, right?
