I’m officially 28 weeks today (7 months)!!! Woo! So I thought I’d give you an update on Larke from my What to Expect app…


"Are you dreaming about your baby? This week, your baby may be dreaming about you, too. Brain wave activity measured in a developing fetus shows different sleep cycles, including the rapid eye movement phase, the stage when dreaming occurs.



By now, your baby, who weighs in at about two and a half pounds and stands — or rather lies — at almost 16 inches (measured head to toe) has added blinking to his or her growing bag of tricks. (Outside in the real world, blinking is necessary to help keep foreign objects out of the eyes.) Other impressive new talents being added to your baby’s roster in the womb include coughing, more intense sucking, and, perhaps most important, better breathing. The good news is that babies born this week, though premature, have an excellent prognosis because their lungs have reached the point (for the most part) of maturity — so you too can breathe a little easier now. Of course, it’s still best if a baby doesn’t check out of that uterine hotel just yet — there’s still a lot of growing and maturing to do over the next 12 weeks.”

And here’s an update on my symptoms/how I’ve been feeling lately…
Tired/exhausted during the day. I usually need to take a nap after I eat in the morning or sometime during the day, but once it’s time for bed, I am  w i d e  awake. I’m talking owl eyes until 1-3am. Every. Single. Night.
I’ve started getting nauseous most nights, but I think it’s getting better. Just depends on what I eat I think.
More thirsty all the time. This is one GOOD symptom that I’m very proud of. I’m not as dehydrated as I was for the first and second trimester, and I’m drinking lots of water. :]

______________________________________________________________________
Also, I had my GD (gestational diabetes) test last week and I passed! No diabetes. Just need more iron in my diet. And here’s an interesting fact - during my whole pregnancy, my body would not keep down any pills. Prenatals, nausea meds, or iron supplements. So I’m trying my best to eat the best I can. I guess it’s working!

I’m just so ready for March to be here. I want to see my little girl.

WELL ANYWAYS. Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas this year! Enjoy time with family and friends, remembering the birth of the Father. ♥
