Checking in with my 28 week post 🙂
12 more weeks until we get to meet our little man. This week I was lazy and didn’t get an eggplant from the store.. I know terrible. I’m sure everyone knows what an eggplant looks like but if you don’t 🙂
According to Babycenter.com, “By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She’s also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.”
This week for the first time I felt him hiccup 🙂 It was while I was laying in bed trying to go to sleep one night and I felt this rhythmic movement. It was really cute. I had my 28 week appointment this week which included the lovely glucose test. It honestly was not as bad as people say it is, it literally tasted like flat orange soda.
This past week I have been feeling pretty good. I’ve had some episodes of backaches but nothing a little hubby back rub can’t fix 🙂 Not yet at least. I was thinking of asking for a prenatal massage for Christmas, it might be something worth investing in.
Another awesome thing that I experienced this week was that I could actually see him moving. And by that I mean I was watching TV the other night and all of a sudden my belly was lopsided, and I had a huge bump on my right side. A really hard bump, Erik and my sister felt it, it was weiiirrrd and awesome at the same time. After a few seconds the bump (we think either butt or head) went away, then came back. He did this two more times before be settled into a comfortable position. That night Erik told me he had a dream he could see his hands and face pushing up against my belly. It sounds a bit weird, but I really think it will be a cool thing to see.
