28 weeks along

We had our 28 week appointment yesterday.  I got my rhogam shot with a giant needle, but nothing else too exciting happened.  My gestational diabetes test came back fine, but my blood work showed anemia, so I'm on iron supplements, same as I was with Joshua.

Though you might be entertained by a pregnancy survey:
How far along: 28 weeks
How big is baby:  Should be about 3 lbs and 17 inches long
Total Weight Gain: 2 lbs
Stretchmarks: Not really
Sleep: Waking every couple hours either because Joshua has called for me or because I have to pee
Maternity clothes:  Mostly, but today I'm wearing regular pants (my favorite work pants that fasten under my belly) and regular shirt (long enough to cover the belly)
Best Moment This Week: Having that scale tip to the positive
Movement: A lot. More shimmers and shakes and rolls than punches though.
Gender: Boy
Labor Signs: None
Belly Button: Kinda even
Food cravings:  fruity carbonated beverages
Food aversions:  The only thing that I really have an aversion for right now is unagi.  That texture just didn't sit well.  Mostly I just don't feel like eating anything.
Symptoms:  Some heartburn, anemia
What I Miss: champagne and fruity cocktails
What I am Looking Forward to: Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas
Next appt:  November 1 - we're now going every two weeks!

And if I could find the USB for my phone, I'd post a 28 week picture (the same one as on fb).

  1. Yum! Fruity carbonated beverages! (Make that fruity ice cream beverages and you'll be doing better on that high-cal business.)
