28 Weeks today! Blair is the size of a Chinese Cabbage, (whatever that is!) And should be weighing close to 2.5 pounds!
And we are at the beginning of 7 months!!
We had our 28 week appointment today and let me tell you, it was a doozy! We were there for over 2 hours! It started off with me drinking the nasty Glucose Test drink, which tasted a lot like the Orange drink you can get a McDonalds. (Yuck! That can't be good for your kiddos!). So if you like that drink then kudos to you if you ever have to take the test! Also, I didn't know you had to drink it within 5 minutes....but I was a champ and downed that liquid in 1.5 minutes. I just wanted to be done!
Then we had to wait an hour.....and then I got my blood drawn (ouch!). After that we finally got to see the doctor and hear my precious baby's strong heartbeat and was told that I'm measuring perfect! After that I got a shot in my arm for Pertussis (Ouch times 100!) (It still hurts!). Then they informed me that they needed more blood to be able to give me my Rhogam shot. UGHH! So I had to go give another tube of blood (that makes for 3 today!) And then I got to go and get the Rhogam shot in my booty. So I was poked and prodded all day by needles. It was no fun.
I'm just glad it's over with! This week is the mark of us starting to have doctor's appointments every 2 weeks! So I will get to go back on the 30th (the day after my birthday!) and hear my precious baby's heartbeat again. Maybe even talk the doctor into an ultrasound as birthday present? That would be the best!
We have started to get Blair's room all set up, and it's looking so gorgeous and fun. I love it so! I can't wait to be done with it. Only a few more things to go and voila! Our baby's room is complete!
Also, now that the weather has been getting cooler (well it's fluctuating between hot and cold), I've had to be more creative with my outfits. Especially since I can't stand looking frumpy everyday! Thank the Lord for J Crew who has shown me that you can dress up sweatpants and look like the most fashionable person in the room! I'm living in these ones from Forever 21! I love dressing them up with a button-down or my military vest with a big statement necklace!
