28 Weeks - 3rd Trimester!

OMG, I'm already in my third trimester, this can't be!

Mia is 2.5 pounds and 16 inches long. I can definitely tell she's getting bigger especially when she moves around! She gets the hiccups a lot! At my last 2 appointments, when my doctor puts the Doppler on her, she has had the hiccups.

All my non-maternity shirts are either too tight around my belly or too short to cover my belly :-(
I had to go get some maternity sweaters to make it through these last few weeks. I've had nasal congestion for the last 3 weeks (apparently its pretty normal). It is making me miserable! I've been waking up for several hours at night because i cant breathe. I guess God is just preparing me for little sleep when Mia gets here :-/. It's all getting very real! I had to answer questions at my last doctors appointment about epidural (YES PLEASE!) and breast feeding or formula feeding, etc. He also said we're on the downhill swing, not much longer, ahhhh! Im so excited to be able to hold this sweet girl, but also nervous about what is all about to happen!

Mia's room is really starting to come together. Her room is painted, a huge thanks to Todd, his dad, and brother! The crib and bookcase are put together. Her clothes are washed and hung up. Now, I'm waiting on the chair, bedding, and curtains to come in. Also, I have to paint the dresser for her room. I'll give you a sneak peek into her room :-)

27 Weeks!

Last week of the second trimester!
Baby is 15 inches long and weighs a little over 2 pounds!!
I've started getting asked a lot this week when my due date is, guess I'm getting a lot bigger!
Also, I got asked if I was sure I wasn't having twins.... Don't ever ask a pregnant lady that!!!

I did my sugar test this week. It really wasn't as bad as everybody makes it out to be! The drink was disgusting, but it wasn't unbearable. I hope I passed, they haven't called me yet, so I'm hoping that's a good sign!

We picked out a paint color and have started painting! Yahoo!! It's a work in progress, but its started and that makes my type A personality very happy!

26 Weeks!

Only 14 weeks left! I don't know whether to freak out or get excited! I'm leaning a little more to freaking out!
Baby Weighs 1 2/3 pounds and is 14 inches long (the length of a burp cloth).

This weekend is going to be Crazy!!! My sister in law is getting married, we have 2 people staying at our house, and my brother is moving out! If I'm still alive after this weekend, I'll be surprised! Im so ready to start working on Mia's nursery next week, it will have me a little less freaked out!

Good news, Prevacid seems to be helping, I just hope it continues to help!
I have another doctor's appointment tomorrow, so I get to hear sweet Mia's heartbeat again!

25 Weeks!

Baby is 13 1/2 inches long and weighs 1 1/2 pounds! A website says she is growing more hair and you should be able to see it now on an ultrasound. I'm quite sure she will come out completely bald! I had no hair until I was around 3 and Molly is just now getting hair. I might pass out if this child comes out with any hair, haha!
I had a checkup last Thursday and baby was doing great! Her heart rate was 154. I've been having some pain in my upper right abdomen after I eat, so we discussed that. He said I was pointing right to my gallbladder :-(. He also said it could be that Mia was just curled up over there or kicking me since I'm shorter. He put me on Prevacid and told me if it gets worse, I'll have a scan of my gallbladder and talk to a surgeon, although they don't want to do anything before I have her. It hasn't gotten any worse and the Prevacid has seemed to help some, so for that I'm very thankful!
Mia is a feisty little thing! She is constantly kicking! Todd had his hand on my belly and she kicked his hand so hard, she moved his hand. You can see her kicking my belly now. I feel like I'm going to freak somebody out soon if I sit in front of them!
I start my 2 week visits now! So crazy, I feel like its definitely getting closer and more real now!
It's definitely getting harder to bend down and put on shoes or squeeze in between small spaces! I'm so ready to hold this little girl and just admire her!
