Survey Says: 28 weeks preggers

Thursday, October 24, 2013

Hi everyone!

I am on a SERIOUS countdown mode.  Tomorrow I am 29 weeks and its an 11 week countdown (whoop whoop)!

This week was crazy busy at work and I must be going through a growth spurt as well because I have been EXHAUSTED, the scale jumped a little too much, and lots of round ligament pain.  Oh and my son is trying to kill me from the inside out.  I went to the doc for my monthly checkup and asked her about my excruciating rib cage pain I have been having for a couple weeks on my right side.  She checked, and since the baby is nestled up there he is also getting stronger kicks and is pushing my rib cage out.  Yep, thats right, becuase I am so short and not a long torso, he is so close to the cage that he is pushing it out.  It completely makes sense since I cannot sit, stand, or walk comfortably anymore. 

I am going to try to go to the chiropractor (per doc's recommendations) to see if an adjustment will work and maybe move him a bit.  I. am. all. for. it. 

Good news of the week is that I am now going to the doc every 2 weeks and I am loving it simply because I am closer to the light at the end of the tunnel. 

Russ and I have made major progress to Ryan's room and I can't wait to share the pics with everyone soon :)

Have a great weekend!
XOXO, Sherri

Written Thursday, Oct. 24

How far along?: 28 weeks and 6 days

Total weight gain/loss: Another 2lb-er this week putting me at 22lb.  Talked to my doc this week at my visit at my 2lb/wk gain lately and I am still on track and just hit another spurt of growth with the nugget.  I am still trying to eat a healthy and balanced diet with exercise so I am not doing anything wrong…not too worried about it since I am still at a average and healthy number for my pre-preg size.

Maternity clothes?:  95% of time.

Sleep: Getting sleep just not lots of quality.  Too many pee breaks.

Best moment of the week:  Monday night I was lying in bed and Ryan starting moving like a maniac…I looked down and saw an outline of a little foot print when he did a huge push.  I was in awe of this little being inside me!

Movement: Constant.  But it is all up under my rib cage which has led to a lot of pain for me.  I talked to the doc about it and she felt around.  Sure enough, he is under my right ribs and because I am so short, he is actually pushing my rib cage out a little which is causing the pain.  I hate to wish the next 12 weeks away but for the sake of this pain….ummmm, yeah.     

Food Cravings: Still have a little sweet tooth but no strong cravings.

Gender: Little king.

Belly Button:  Flattie…still

Stretchmarks?:  None…yet.

What I miss:  My rib cage not in sharp pain??

What I am looking forward to: Meeting this soccer player I have in my belly

Weekly Wisdom: Baby Ryan is the size of an eggplant and at this point everything is just maturing and he is getting more fat on him.

Milestones: Entered the third/FINAL trimester! And now on a every 2 week doc visit.
