Here we are at 29 weeks! Time is FLYING by. I just can't handle how close we are till baby time. It's freaking me the EFF out. But anyways, let's get on with a bump date.
How far along: 29 weeks!
How big is baby? I just had an ultrasound this past Thursday and they are telling that baby girl weighs around 3 pounds and measuring PERFECTLY! Woop Woop. I technically was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes after failing my 3 hour glucose test, but ever since I have been tracking my food... and I really haven't been following the diet plan... my levels are normal. So they think that my body just reacts way differently to the influx of sugar in so little time that made me fail the test but processing sugar for me during the day is not a problem. But because they slapped the diagnoses on me I get to go again for an ultrasound in 4 weeks so they can keep a closer look on baby girl which is fine with me so we can get some more pictures!
Weight gain: I have gained a total of 6 pounds as of Thursday this whole pregnancy. Woop Woop. And before you jump down my throat, my weight gain is perfectly normal and right on track. I think some people think preggos need to gain 30-40 pounds, but that is NOT the case. I am very content with my weight gain and that baby girl is measuring perfectly. Doctor says I am good so I am good.
Symptoms: Back pain is a killer! I cleaned up yesterday and paid for it big time. I can barely walk my back hurt so much. Heartburn is also back with this third trimester underway. Not pleasant. But so far I have been able to minimize feet and ankle swelling which is a plus!
Sleeping: I only get up usually once to pee in the middle of the night. But besides that, sleep has been good as it's going to get. I think my body got used to the back pain.
Food cravings/aversions: Nothing very specific. Sometimes I can eat a full meal and sometimes, I only have a little bit and lose my appetite thanks to heartburn.
Miss anything?: Coffee! And the other day I wanted a frozen pina colada loaded with rum. womp womp.
Gender: It's a girl, Sohpia!
Wedding rings on or off?: Off.. which makes me super sads since I am obsessed with my wedding rings. I bought a stainless steel wedding ring set to wear in the meantime because I legit have a panic attack everything I felt my fingers naked thinking I lost my rings. LOL. And for those preggos, stainless steel is a great option for hypoallergenic and doesn't irritate your skin and stays shiny. The fake rings look so real it's kind of ridiculous when you think about people spending so much money on real gold. Don't tell hubs I said that though. LOL
Maternity Clothes?: Best thing about being pregnant in the summer = Maxi dresses!
Movement: Baby girl moves around so much! Especially first thing in the morning when I wake up and while I am sitting at work.
What I did/got for baby: The baby's room is painted and we have most of the furniture in. We just have to pick up the crib from my mom's house and put together. My goal is to have the room finished before our baby shower since once that happens, the room is going to be filled with LOTS of stuff from the shower that will need to be organized.
What I'm looking forward to: My surprise baby shower that my mom and sister are throwing me.... and of course when it's baby time so I can give my sweet baby girl kisses on her head and hold her and thank God for his blessing to us.
Best moment of the week: Realizing that we are about 10 weeks away!!!! Holy Moly.
I still can't believe that we are almost near baby time but I am just getting excited... and also having frequent panic attacks. But that comes with being an expectant parent right? LOL.
And baby girl got to attend her first wedding. Here I am at 27 weeks at our dear friends wedding!
The hubs and brother worked hard to paint the baby's room too!
