Belly bump week #28

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart...
Jeremiah 1:5

Ootd: old navy maternity tunic. Nonmaternity tights from the Philippines (my grandma got me this pair). Belt: old navy. Capiz shell earrings also from the Philippines.

How far along are you?
Finished 28 weeks gestation. Started my third trimester
Best Moment this week?
--5:30p June 28th when I said goodbye to inpatient work until 2014!
--My weekend off spent with my hubs and kids
Prayer requests?
Healthy kids and healthy pregnancy
Baby's growth?
Baby D3 weighs 2 1/4 pounds and measures 14 inches from the top of the head to the heels (babycenter)
Sleep is disrupted... I have frequent awakenings and it takes me a long time now to go back to sleep which was not a problem for me before.
And the usual: tiredness, reflux.
Amazing enough no constipation.
Medical Stuff?
I passed my glucose test. My level was 124 with cut off at 140.
I'm on the every 2-week OB visit now.
Weight gain (or loss)?
+29 at my OB visit. Up 2 from 4 weeks ago
Walked a lot at the hospital
And over the weekend, I started a new nonpregnant exercise dvd by reebok and Gaiam using my soft weighted ball.
Cravings? Food Aversions?
White chocolate mocha (1/2 caff to reduce palpitations and increased heart rate)
Not so good :(
Maternity Clothes?
Yup, yup, yup
Surprise! We don't know.
Kicks, nudges, hiccups
I let the kids feel the belly but they still haven't felt the kicks or movements.
What I miss....
Steady weight (ha!)
What I'm looking forward to....
Better sleep
About the rest of the family...
--I blogged about my pregnancies during residency.
-- Isabel is out of the crib and sleeping on her big girl twin bed
-- Daniel got his first library card

Linking up: babies and beyond at proverbs and pacifiers and beauty in the mess.


  1. The sleep disruption is so hard! I'm sorry. I had that with babies #2 and #3. I don't know why it didn't happen with #4. I kept waiting for it and it never came! Do you have names picked out for either gender?

  2. Thanks for stopping my my blog through MM. Great to have found yours!
