Hi everyone! We are at the 28 week mark and he is punching and kicking like never before! At least he is getting in his exercise.
Soooo many doctor apps coming up, after the app I had on Monday they are scheduling the regular belly checks every 2 weeks!
This week we had another ultrasound because the radiologist didn’t like the plane he was on before, but this one was in 3-D! So cool to see his beautiful face.

Then I had a glucose test to check for gestational diabetes, I had 5 minutes to drink some orange flavored drink then wait 1 hour and they take your blood sugar, I passed with a sugar level of 100. With my sweet tooth some people I know, not saying any names thought I may fail hehe. But nope, I am in the clear for the gestational diabetes.

Then tomorrow I have to go get some blood work done which is always horrible since I have no veins and then get a shot called Rhogam which from my understanding gives my A- blood type positive antibodies, its function is to prevent the mother’s immune system from recognizing and forming antibodies against itself??? If you’re a negative blood type, there’s a good chance that your blood is incompatible with your baby’s blood, which is could be positive. There’s no way to know what type the baby’s blood is so it’s good to just get the shot. If someone can explain this better to me please do!
My energy has been super low and I have trouble getting up the stairs because I get so breathless. It’s crazy how this baby has made me HATE exercise and moving around. I really thought I could be one of these super pregnant people that do it all, but guess what? I am OK with just being lazy for a couple more months!
Being pregnant is such a blessing and I am soooo excited to meet our little man. But just speaking from my personal experiences of being sick, these hormones don’t agree with my body. Sometimes these women that love being pregnant make me crazy!
That brings me to my poll question of the day: Would you rather be pregnant for 10 months or do 200 burpess in 10 minutes to produce a baby? Comment below.
