28 Weeks

How far along? 28w1d THIRD TRIMESTER!!
Gender: Girl
Weight Gain? 20+ pounds
Maternity Clothes? Maternity leggings like 99% of the time!  I'm telling you those Blanqi leggings are definitely worth the money, even though I got mine for 50% off, I am now convinced I would pay full price for the, especially the belly support pair.
Stretch Marks? None!
Belly button in or out?  Flattening out more and more.
Sleep:  Sleeping well is becoming a thing of the past.  I still get a pretty decent night of sleep but I've been waking up in the middle of the night wide awake and tossing and turning a lot due to congestion.  I have the humidifier and the oil diffuser going & I think they're doing the best work they can.  
Best moment this week:  I caught baby girl kicking on video which was awesome.  She has been moving around a ton!  I had another prenatal massage and I cannot tell you how beneficial I think those are.  I also had my glucose test Friday and have yet to hear back but I think I passed because those are usually same day results.  My mom and I went out of town Christmas shopping after my test Friday and I got almost all of my Christmas shopping done & everything wrapped/bagged the next day!  Feeling very accomplished as I've never had my shopping done this early!  I also moved into a B cup for the first time ever in my life (yay pregnancy boobs!) which was pretty exciting.  I had to order a new winter coat too because my one from last year was just way too snug in the tummy. 
Worst moment this week:  The general exhaustion & aches and pains that I feel is really the only negative thing I can say right now & even those are tolerable.  I've been so lucky to have such an uneventful pregnancy.
Symptoms:  Fatigue, back pain, weight gain, some restlessness at night, other than that still pretty minimal as far as symptoms are concerned.
Miss Anything?  I'll be honest, lots of people are getting alcohol for Christmas presents this year, I might be subconsciously giving it as gifts since I do miss it a bit!
Movement?  Tons of movement, a lot more during the day than before now too.
Cravings?  All the Christmas sweets are out in full force & you can be I've been indulging.
Queasy or sick?  Noting at all!
Looking forward to?  We have our first Christmas gathering this weekend coming up.  It's about a 3 hour drive south and they're calling for a lot of snow that day so I'm really hoping we can make it as it's been a couple years since I've gone.  Last year I was really down the day of this particular party because we had found out that same day that all of our embryos had arrested,  I had just transferred 2 embryos a few days prior and was really hoping our other 5 would make it to blasts & to be PGS tested but they didn't.  Christmas time last year was so hard, and it was really hard to participate all of the festivities!  Our cycle was awful.  It started off so promising with 16 eggs retrieved, but it turned out to be a complete disaster.  It really amazes me at how much can change in the course of year! Now we have our miracle on the way! I can't wait to really be able to enjoy Christmas this year in a way I have never been able to!


  1. I'm so jealous you caught her moving on video! And going up in cup size(s) is definitely a plus. I went up from a B to a C fairly quickly and now I'm a D but I've been a D for months now and they haven't gotten any bigger. I think bigger boobs is like the one thing I'm going to miss about pregnancy when it is all over in less than 2 1/2 weeks. My mom got lucky and hers stuck around lol. She went from an A cup to a full C/ small D cup.

  2. Your boobs will get even bigger if you nurse, mine went from a DD, to a DDD while pregnant and then while nursing they were an H, as in HOLY CRAP that was a big bra... Afterwards and even with a ton of weight loss they are still at a DDD.... So they might stay that way!

  3. Yay for 3rd trimester!! I did my first bumpdate today too!! So friggin' exciting!

  4. You just look so cute, love reading your updates! Cold deli meat sandwiches are the only thing I miss, bad haha.

  5. Road trips are so hard when you are that pregnant! Hope you are able to stay comfortable!

  6. Your blog was suggested to me from another blogger, I am so happy and encouraged that after all you and husband have been through you are pregnant! My husband and I have been trying for almost 6 years also and have gone through about as many IVFs and treatments as you so the fact that you are pregnant and having a baby are a huge inspiration to us and has helped me stay hopeful. We are trying IVF with my eggs one more time in January and if it doesn't work we are moving on the donor eggs and it's so encouraging to see that's what made the difference for you. Congratulations again and thank you for sharing your journey it's hard to find people with a similarly long and exhausting history to relate to.
