baby G2: weeks 23-28


blog land is near non existent. that makes my heart soggy. every day i say "i really need to get a post in", and every day - that action slips past me.



past few weeks with baby girl:

sciatica. bad. mainly in the evenings and at night. when i wake up to pee, i feel like someone has just poured cement around my whole body and i can barely get one leg in front of the other. it actually really hurts my booty and i ask isaiah for a rub down with some icy-hot more often than not. yowza!

glucose test. one hour. i failed!! UGH. i can't believe it. i did NOT fail with C, passed with flying colors actually and a very low number. this time? despite eating a lot less ice cream this time around? fail. so i go back for the 3 hour later this week. gunna rent myself some red box movies and hope i survive. i am blaming PCOS on this one.

i sure wasn't lying when i said that baby girl's pregnancy is complete opposite of C's!

weight gain. i am up 12lbs at 28 weeks. theres one thing to be proud of! at this point with crue, i was up over 20. but even though i am only up 12, i might have gestational diabetes.

baby's position. an elective ultrasound showed us she was breech the day after my 24wk appointment. at 24wks my OB didn't say she was, and at my 28w appointment he couldn't tell. i am just really hoping i don't try for a vbac only to find out she's breech and my OB couldn't tell prior. because if she is breech (and stays breech), i'll consider just scheduling a c-section.

the bump. while some days i feel like its growing, most days i feel like its not. perhaps i was larger with C at this point? i don't know. it does cause me to worry though. OH THE PREGNANCY WORRY. perhaps if i do have GD, ill get another ultrasound to peek in on her and make sure all is well?! the silver linings. (though my OB does *not* hand out ultrasounds easily! boooo)

the nursery. we are finally wrapping up crue's "big boy" room! my mom is no longer staying with us, so last weekend we started painting the nursery. i am much happier with the colors than i was for crue's nursery, so were off to a good start! we just bought the crib (we went with the jenny lind in white) and got that set in. up next, the mattress and ALL THE THINGS. i don't think crue's nursery was ever 100% complete before we even switched to the big boy version so i am determined to get hers done once and for all.

weather. spring has peeked its head a few days here in minnesota! we had two(?) days near 60. oh it was glorious. its back in the 30s, but the snow is gone and i am hoping it does not return. it has been SUCH a blessing to be able to get outside with crue. the fresh air is so good for everyone.

we are officially in the 3rd/last trimester!


  1. Bummer about the one hour - here's hoping you pass the three hour! I had GD with Ollie though and it wasn't so bad - you can even still have ice cream, just have to be careful about it. Good luck!

  2. That is no fun to have to do the 3 hour test...but I hope and pray you pass that one. What did you guys do with the crib you had for Crue? If I remember correctly, you had one but I don't think it was ever used because didn't he sleep with you guys?!?! Yaaaa for last trimester! Can't wait to meet this beauty!!!!
