Starting the 3rd Trimester (28 weeks)

Well, here comes the end, only three months left! Less than three months now!

A few days this week I have actually thought, there is no way my body and I are going to make it 3 months! I am feeling really big and "losing myself in this big ol' belly!" This baby is so low I feel a lot of pressure and achyness very low, not to mention lots of bladder poking! Today I had a pretty good day that made me feel like- sure I can hold out for 3 more months but who knows what tomorrow will bring. Okay, all the complaints aside, I am really getting excited for this "real baby." The boys are too! All three of them have been feeling lots of movements! The little boys and I enjoy watching my belly roll and bump and move as the baby moves. Jett keeps saying, "Yep, there's definitely something alive in there!"

Cory is feeling excited about getting ready but yet I still think he is in for a small shock when the baby comes and time is running out to get ready. I guess, the non-reader that he is, there just isn't much he can do to prepare. He will just have to go through "shock therapy" when the baby comes! He did however, come home from a work trip to MT with 2 newborn outfits, a cute hoodie towel and some receiving blankets! What a thoughtful daddy!

WEEK 26- 6th month Dr. Appt

Last Thursday I had my 6 month Dr. appt with my preferred Dr. I also had to the drink the Glucose drink, for the Gestational diabetes test, wait an hour and get my blood drawn. While waiting for the hour to expire I went to the Dr's appointment. The heartbeat was high 150's, which I was happy about because higher numbers tend to be a girl, but it could have just been high on the sugar I just drank! I was NOT lacking in the weight gain department this month but Doc said that I was average compared to all the other pregnant girls she weighed that same day! Guess we all ate well over the Holidays,,, mine must have been that Fudge from Aunt Christi!!!! (yeah, it was good!)
Anyway, after sharing with the Dr. that my heart is still "freaking out" skipping beats and thumping loudly even when I feel totally calm, she decided to do some extra blood work. I was actually grateful she didn't freak out and want to run $5000 worth of tests! Guess it was a good call on her part because I found out the next day I was pretty low on Potassium. I was already taking one Potassium a day, but have upped it and feel a little better now!
And more good news, I passed the Gestational diabetes test so no need for more torture. Well, at least not torture in the area of 'consuming sugary drinks that give you a headache and the shakes.'
