Splodge is approximately the size of a cabbage
which sounds pretty big to me.
And he or she is weighing in at about two and a half pounds.
Splodge is now coughing and sucking
and blinking and maybe even dreaming.
But more exciting,
is the fact his or her lungs have reached maturity;
meaning that if Splodge decided to make an early arrival now
that the prognosis would be good.
Although we'd like a few more weeks of cooking to be on the safe side.
When I went for my 28 week appointment
My waist is still measuring in at 39 inches
so I haven't gain in circumference in the last fortnight.
But then I do feel like my bump is rounder if that makes sense.
My Pregnancy Development:
I reached my third trimester!!!
How did this happen so fast?
This pregnancy is definitely whizzing past
and I can't believe I'm in that final third already.
I'm still doing okay body wise.
No stretch marks and that belly button is still an innie.
I am starting to feel like I'm pretty enormous though
and I do get out of puff quickly now from the extra weight
and the reduced room for my organs.
Splodge was in the breech position
but when I went for blood tests yesterday
they had already moved to transverse,
so hopefully they are headed on their way to head down.
I definitely won't miss the breech kicks.
My appetite feels good,
but my eyes are bigger than my tummy a lot of the time.
Or rather my stomach is getting squashed and I can't get big meals in there anymore.
I tend to eat half my dinner and then the other half an hour later
which is a nuisance but I'll survive.
I've been into avocados and peanut butter in a big way over the last week or so,
which may be cravings,
or may just be me really fancying them;
but they taste so good.
And the dairy obsession continues
which I think is just a me thing when I'm pregnant.
And it was good to finally get to check in with the midwife this week
as I haven't seen them since I was sixteen weeks and that seems like ages ago.
I'm kind of at a point where I feel like I want to start organising things now
like getting a buggy ordered
and digging out the newborn clothes we had for the little guy.
