28 Weeks

Update on Friday's ultrasound:
Sadie's left kidney is still dilated, and getting bigger. 4 weeks ago her left kidney was measuring at 8mm and on Friday it measured at 13mm. Under 7 is "normal" so, in my eyes, we're well out of the normal range, but Dr. S says this is still moderately dilated. While this isn't good news, our doctor still isn't very concerned about this. We will continue to monitor through ultrasounds until birth and will probably meet with a urologist before Sadie is born, but once she's here they'll be able to do better ultrasounds on her directly and know what will need to be done to correct the problem after birth (if it doesn't correct itself on its own). This little lady is measuring a week ahead at 29 weeks and weighs about 2lbs 13oz! Our ultrasound techs are still commenting on her looong legs! Our tech on Friday even switched over to 3d for a bit (I think she felt bad that we had a long 45 minute wait in the waiting room before being seen). I asked if they'd be able to tell if our girl has hair yet and they said that it does look like she has at least a little bit of hair! :)

How far along? 28w1d
 How big is baby? This week the bump says my little girl is the size of an eggplant!
Total weigh gain? I keep forgetting to weigh myself at home and still don't agree with the doctor's scales. I'll be sure to weigh myself before my next check in next week!
Maternity clothes? Always. I do have to say, I'm pretty disappointed in the maternity clothes sold at stores here (Target, Kohl's, Destination Maternity). I went to look for a dress I could wear to a bacherlorette party and was disappointed that I couldn't find anything. I guess I should have planned for it better and found something online. My favorite online store to shop right now is Pink Blush Maternity. It's not the best quality or maybe I should just read the care instructions better, but their clothes are really cute and really reasonably priced.
Stretch marks? Nope. Still piling on the cocoa butter. Maybe I should buy stock?
Sleep? Although I'm not waking up a ton to go to the bathroom, sleep is becoming more uncomfortable. It's a bummer that I can't just get out of bed anymore and literally have to roll out :) leg cramps wake me up in the morning and my hips "falling asleep" is painful. Ugh.
Best moment this week? Being able to see my little cutie was awesome. I'm still worried about her kidneys, but just trying to take cues from the doctor and she tells me not to be worried about it so that's what I'm trying to do (not worry). Also, Matthew has taken to talking to Sadie a little bit at night and it's really sweet. Those moments have been pretty amazing too.
Miss anything? Nope, not right now!!
Movement? I love feeling her moving around.
Food cravings? Back to beer :)
Anything making you queasy or sick? No!
Gender? Baby girl!
Labor signs? Nope.
Symptoms? Weird dreams still!
Belly button in, or out? Still just barely in.
Wedding rings on or off? On!!
Happy or moody most of the time? Happy!!
Looking forward to? Meeting this little girl in 12 weeks (or 10 if we're going by my schedule...haha I kid, I kid, kinda)!!

  1. I adore your bump pictures with the chalkboard, so cute! When I look back at mine I laugh bc I must have been going through an intense "headband phase".

    I think that is so sweet that Matt talks to Sadie =)
