yep, I’m 28 weeks. That means I’m in my 7th month. My last trimester has begun. When I told that to a parent today, her jaw dropped to the ground. She couldn’t believe I was in my third trimester (me either, to be honest). Is that a light I see? Yes, IT IS! It’s the light at the end of the tunnel! Woo hoo.
My visit today with Dr. Behm was short and sweet. He listened to the fetal heartbeat and measured my belly. I’m nearly 29 cm which is perfect! And, believe it or not I only gained 3 pounds this past month. Amazing! Especially since my ice cream consumption has increased ten fold! My night is not complete without a big bowl of Breyers ice cream resting on my belly. Dr. Behm operates a small office and he typically births all his patient’s babies unless its a Wednesday (his day off) or one of his Saturdays off. Therefore, I will have an appointment with his co-worker in the near future so I can meet her. My next appointment is in 4 weeks. After that appointment I will visit Dr. Behm every 2 weeks until the last month. Then I’ll see him weekly. Lamaze begins in middle January and my last day of work is TOMORROW! Hopefully I can now cap this back/hip pain by staying off my feet. (crossing fingers). Nick and I are packed and ready for Florida. We leave tomorrow night, stopping in Nashville for a rest before completing the drive on Thursday. Hope to see everyone soon!
ps: my glucose test came back fine!
