28 Weeks Pregnant
Well I am enjoying the Third Trimester! I cannot believe it has arrived! Holy Smokes! This pregnancy is flying by! You don't even realize how many nights Jayden and I lie and bed and talk about how fast everything is going. We still cannot even wrap our head around the Idea that we almost have a 1.5 Year Old. How does time go so fast? Life with Isaiah has been a complete life change...and we cannot even believe he is ours. We cannot even believe we have been parents for 1.5 Years (on the 1st) Yikes!
And now he is going to have a little brother! Slow down time. Life is amazing and we are so blessed and Thankful to have all that we have! Thank you Jesus!
This pregnancy has been very great so far. Minus the very painful heartburn every now and again. But this last week was when I gave in and went and bought some Zantac (better take some now...now that I got a reminder to take it) But yeah there was a day earlier this Week that I could have died it was so bad. I could hardly breath and it was the sharpest pain to my chest I have experienced in all my life. I have never felt it anything like this when I was prego with Isaiah. So it was a crazy experience. I got a prescription when I was pregnant with Isaiah because I would get heartburn (mild heartburn) every once and a while. The Doctor said that the meds were still fine to take with this pregnancy (because I only used like 1 out of the bottle) So I took 2 the day I had the bad heartburn and I swear it did absolutely nothing for me! My Sister-In-Law who is also pregnant right now (YAY for lil cousins) swears by Zantac....so I thought I would give it a try...and WOW it is way better than the stuff I got from my Doctor! Crazy!
I made little man a newborn hospital hat and some little booties. So I am definitely feeling the early stages of nesting (if that's possible) well nesting by doing crafts and making things for him? haha.
Aren't they so cute? I will definitely have more coming!
How does Mama feel? Well like I said before I feel great. Just heartburn. Also I have noticed I am starting to get really tired again and losing energy to do things (housework mostly) Also when I have to pick Isaiah up I am finding that a hard task as well. My Belly is definitely in the way now. I told Jayden that I should probably give myself a pedi before I cannot reach my toes at all! So I am sure that will happen this Weekend sometime! Get rid of these dry winter feet I have going on. Also my hands need a good pick me up as well. Nighttime is starting to be the time where I am dreading the most...I cannot get comfortable in bed at all! I seriously wake up a million times to roll over to the other side (and am constantly waking up sleeping on my back)
I really want to finish organizing my craft room...because there is a few projects I want to get done before he arrives. A few things I want to make for him (and I will most likely make extra's for the other babies that are going to make an appearance this Year!)
I had a girls day on Wednesday. My good friend Laura and I got our hair done together (one after another) then went out for some lunch. It is seriously the best feeling when you get pampered. We tried out this salon for the first time with a coupon for $10 off your first cut as well as a free hair product. How crazy is that? Plus the girl did an amazing job on my hair. I Love it! A little shorter than I wanted, but mostly because the previous cut was slightly longer towards the front. I want to grow it now, so this will be much better for doing just that!
How Big is Baby for Week 28? Baby is the size of an Eggplant! Lol! Crazy! Weighs around 1.5-2.5lbs
and is about 13.6-14.8 inches in length! The lungs are mature enough that he could probably breath on his own if he were born prematurely. Doesn't this sound insane. He is still so tiny...but he can survive being out in the world! Keep cookin in there baby. We will meet soon enough!
