28 Weeks...Take 2

08 May 2013

Baby's the size of an eggplant!
He's starting to develop more fat, so his wrinkly skin will start to get smoother. Also, his lungs are mature enough that he'd survive if was born now! 
Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 28 Weeks
Size of baby: Eggplant
Maternity Clothes: Yes. 
Gender: It's a baby BOY!!! Jack Cameron Williamson
Movement: Yes, I feel him everyday...especially first thing in the morning. 
Sleep: About the same...not great, but I'm used to it now. 
What I MissSleeping on my back...and it's becoming more uncomfortable to pick things up off the floor. :)
Cravings: Lately it's been sweets, but I'm trying sort of to hold back. 
Symptoms: I have had horrible back pain lately. I know it's normal and it's my body stretching and adjusting, but I don't really remember it hurting this much with Karis. 
Best Moment This Week: (See below).

People often ask me if Karis understands what's happening and that she's going to have a baby brother. The simple answer is, no. For starters Karis still only has a few words in her vocabulary, so she's not communicating with words what's happening. Furthermore, it's a HUGE concept to grasp. Even at my age, and having had a baby before, it still hurts my brain to truly conceptualize that there is an entire human in my belly. On top of that, we talk about Baby Jack quite a bit, but we aren't constantly telling her that he lives in Mommy's belly...yes, we mention it at times, but weren't not hung up on that part. However, this past week, she has been so sweet and rubbing my belly occasionally. Sometimes she will even lift my shirt and look at my belly for a few minutes then give it a few loving pats. It's so sweet. I know that she knows something's happening and that's enough for now. 

I had my glucose test yesterday, here's to hoping I passed. I did fine and passed with Karis, but I still get nervous for that test. 

We are finally in the 3rd trimester! Woo hoo! It is so nice to know that Baby Jack would be able to survive if anything happened and he made his appearance early. Obviously, I don't want to that to happen, but it does bring about a bit of reassurance. Here's to 12 more weeks! (Although you won't hear any complaints out of me if it's a smidge less than that.)
