28 Weeks

10 Jun

My LORDY, the time is just flying by.  It seems like just yesterday I was peeing on a stick, thinking there was no way I was pregnant.  Not only was I pregnant, I was REALLY pregnant.  Whoops.  Thanks, alcohol!  And now here we are, in the third trimester.  If bambino were born today, she would have a >85% chance of surviving.  That’s not an invitation, little one.  You stay in there until you’re good and done.

It’s kind of hard to believe that my insides look like this, but they do:

Baby A:  Weighing in at 2 pounds, 4 ounces, and measuring 14.8 inches in height, she’s well on her way to being a giant!  She has eyelashes now and has started to blink her eyes.  Her eyesight is developing, which means she can see light that filters in through the womb.  Time to start shining flashlights on my belly!

Momma:  Having the second three day diet monitor placed this week, and not looking forward to the process at all.  Mostly because the diet is so restricted – I can’t just satisfy a craving, because I can only eat the food they provide.  It’s only 3 days, though, and we can definitely use the cash!  Feeling movements much more these days.  Sometimes it feels like baby is doing backflips in there.  Move around all you want, babe, just make sure you’re head down at the end!

Dad:  Is doing better at relinquishing control of projects over to Mom.  This came after he told Mom how “terrible” something would look if she did it a certain way, and Mom cried for an hour while cleaning the house top to bottom.  Hey, I never said pregnancy was rational.
