Pregnancy Update: Week 28!

Hi guys!

Can you believe that October is already here? I just can’t believe how quickly this year (and pregnancy) have flown! I’m totally not complaining though – bring on sweater weather, hot tea sippin’, changing leaves and pumpkin everything! Especially sweater weather, that’s definitely #1 on my list. 

I went to the doctor this morning for my monthly checkup, RhoGAM shot and my dreaded 3 hour glucose test. I woke up feeling really awful so the nurse and doctor were nice enough to not torture me with the glucose test today; I’ll go back later this week for that fun appointment! Turns out that I have an upper respiratory infection so I’m taking the next few days to just hang out, relax and try to kick this crud! Poor Charlee was diagnosed with pneumonia over the weekend so if you were interested in paying us a visit, I suggest you wait until the germs leave our home! 😉

So week 28 is here and I think reality has set in. I’ll now be going to the doctor every 2 weeks for checkups and I believe we will be scheduling my c-section at my next visit. I’m so incredibly nervous about having a c-section so if any of you who are reading this and have had one – please tell me it’s not that bad! I felt SO good after having Charlee (no c-section) and I’m just really worried about the crappy recovery this time around. Send me good vibes, y’all! <3

Pregnancy Updates:

How far along? 28 weeks 3 days
Total weight gain/loss: I’ve gained right around 10lbs
Maternity clothes? Still wearing mostly non maternity but am loving the two pairs of maternity jeans I purchased from Target (these and these). I probably should start buying a couple maternity shirts because I have noticed my tops are becoming a little short! 
Sleep: Ugh. I’m not sure that I even know what sleep is anymore 🙁 I fall asleep fine initially when I get into bed, but then I wake up about every 1.5 hours and CANNOT get back to sleep. My brain won’t turn off. I think I’m averaging anywhere from 3 – 5 hours (5 hours on a good night!). And this is coming from a person who NEEDS a solid 8+ hours. 
Best moment this week: Hitting the third trimester – I see the light at the end of the tunnel! 
Have you told family and friends: Yup!
Movement: He’s a mover and a shaker 🙂
Food cravings: Still no true cravings – just pretty much food in general, haha! Trying to make good decisions but I do occasionally splurge. We had pizza last night and I indulged in a cajun filet biscuit from Bojangles this morning!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really, thank goodness. 
Have you started to show yet: Oh yes! 
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: I feel like my crankiness has subsided a little bit lately. (Is that accurate, Justin??)
Weekly Wisdom:  Live in the moment and enjoy the ride.

xoxo, 

Ashleigh

      Thank you so much! Hopefully this crud is on it’s way out! Then we can spend our days prepping for baby boy and cherishing our time as a family of 3 before he makes his arrival 🙂
