Today we went for our 28 week appointment. Excuse me, 28 weeks?! We have tipped over into the third trimester already and I absolutely can't believe it. Over the past three weeks, my tummy has hit a bit of a growth spurt, but after a pretty good weight gain at my 26 week appointment, I found out today that I actually lost a pound from my last visit! I'm hovering around 13 total weight gain since the beginning, and I'm hoping not to exceed 20. All those experienced mommies, is this reasonable at this point with about 12 weeks left? Today I got my Rogan shot because of my Rh negative blood. It was probably one of the most painful shots I've had because of the sheer volume of medicine going inside. Luckily, it was inserted in my very well-padded bum. Today, we also scheduled a 4-D ultrasound for mid-January. We were back and forth about whether we wanted to have this. I was indifferent, but today Justin mentioned that he thought it would be cool, so we scheduled it for the 14th of Jan. I am excited to see what this little booger looks like now! We will be 32 weeks by that point!
A week or so ago, I ordered the crib set from a lady here in Birmingham who makes baby bedding. I hope it looks good when she completes it! I patterned it from this photo:
The colors are pretty much the same, but I wanted a gathered skirt instead. She is also making the skirt a little longer, and I didn't order a toy bag. The back of the bumber is going to have the letter "H" monogrammed... same with the pillow and blanket!
Why just the letter H? THE BABY HAS NO NAME! Although we have a short list, we haven't nailed down exactly what we're going to call this little guy yet. I'm ready to commit, but Justin is wanting to see what he looks like first. Maybe the 4-D ultrasound will help!
Well, by this point in my pregnancy, the baby should be around 14 inches long and a little over 2 pounds. He can blink, hear, suck his thumb, and do all sorts of other things I never would have thought a baby could do in utero.
In just a few short months, we'll be able to meet our little guy. I can't wait!
