28 weeks! Happy Third Trimester!!!

Yes! We've made it to the 3rd and last trimester of pregnancy! It's been a rough and bumpy road here and there but the end is in sight and I can almost feel my little girl in my arms now!

The tech/nurse lady we had this time around wasn't near as good at getting awesome pics as the other lady we've always had has been .. but it was a good appointment over all. The kids were able to go and they got to see her on the screen and hear her heartbeat and all of that fun stuff.

We were able to see everything we needed to see and we even got to see both little feet and you could tell by the images that she's got 5 little piggies on each foot! That is always good to know as a momma!

They still don't have any idea why I'm still spotting and having so many BH/contractions but basically she said I probably just have what's called a "friable cervix" which essentially means the more active I am with a little baby pressing against it, the easier it's going to bleed. Joy.

Anyhow, onto the good stuff! In the pic you can see half of her sweet little face. She's so close to my cervix and pressed so far against the placenta you can't see a whole lot, but the half you can see is so precious <3 Ok, ok, I'm probably biased. Based just on the picture she looks to have my eyes and the kids' cheeks and Joe's nose and head shape! (Awwww)

26 Weeks

Well the doctor did it. She threatened me with bed rest. She said if she restricts me to bed rest I'm not going to be allowed to get up and go anywhere except the bathroom, shower, food and dr appointments. No grocery, no school activities, no nothing. Eek!

Haevyn is doing well, and aside from all my discomfort .. I am too. I think. I just did my glucose test today (EW!!) and they'll call me with the results on that in the next day or two.

I do have to go back in 2 weeks rather than 3 or 4 because they're getting concerned with all the symptoms I'm having and wanna keep a closer watch. Woo boy. That's fun.

On another note, I do actually need to go to the grocery store, but I'm not sure just how long is safe to be on my feet :( Dr said if I start having braxton hicks again and especially if I start spotting again I need to get my butt to the Women's Center (L&D) immediately to get checked out. Grr this baby is already a sweet little pain in the butt and she's not even here! lol

The kids got to pick each others Christmas gifts out yesterday, that was fun. I need to get them wrapped and tossed under the tree now so they're not tempted to try hunting them down!

I'm exhausted. I wanna take a nap. Ah well .. guess I'll do without one today.
