28w5 days a.k.a. When Things Get Good

I've been in third trimester for over a week now. I feel Bea moving everyday. I can even watch my stomach bumping up and down while I'm working. Despite the fact that I'm getting bigger and more uncomfortable I have never felt better.

THIS is what I was waiting for. Some sense of calm. Not questioning every weird CM. Ever minute without movement. Every new ache or pain. The JOY of pregnancy.

Is it any wonder my Blood Pressure has gone way down recently?

The nursery is in progress. We have a crib, dresser and glider. Every night I go in there, sit on my glider and just rock for a little bit. I really love that room.

I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. (I'm obese and there is a history on both sides of the not really a shocker). I've been on the diet for about 3 weeks. My sugars are great. I don't have that many cravings. And my OB is cool letting Bea stay put (if she wants) til at least my due date if not longer.

Speaking of long I'm growing one heck of a kid in here. At my last ultrasound roughly 2.5 weeks ago she was already weighing in at close to 3 pounds. Her legs are in the 97th percentile! She as a whole is in the 96th. Her stomach (a better indicator of GD related growth) is only in the mid-80s so this is not a crazy overfed sugar baby. This is a long legged (like her mother) big headed (like her father) chunky monkey.

And I can't wait to meet her.


  1. I found your blog while scouring infertility sites (i'm new at this, first IUI 2 days ago). Let me tell you i have read the entire thing and couldn't put computer down to go to bed!

    What a great story you have. Can't wait to hear about Bea when you finally get to see her!
