Pregnancy Highlights

How far along? 28 weeks 5 days

Size of Baby? A little over 15 inches and almost 3 pounds. The size of a chinese cabbage

Gender? A boy! Hayes Lucas Olson

Movement? Quite a bit, he hardly ever punches or kicks me, but I can feel his whole body moving, like he is snuggling in.

Sleep? Still awesome

Symptoms? Still just the occasional upset stomach. It was pretty bad for 2 days after taking the glucose tolerance test.

Cravings? Nothing really. It is harder to find something that sounds good to eat.

Best Moment of the Week? Finding out the I passed the glucose screening with flying colors! An hour after you drink the glucose, your blood sugar is supposed to be below 140, and mine was 77. YEAH! The drink itself wasn't bad going down, but it made me sick about an hour afterwards, I though for sure I had failed, because of how horrible I felt.
I had my 28 week check up yesterday, and everything looks great, I am measuring 29cm which is a week ahead but that is totally normal, and Hayes's heartbeat was in the 130-140 range. Dr Mallory told me that I was having a remarkably unremarkable pregnancy, and he wishes everyone had such an easy time! Go me! haha
Haha don't mind my scary huge eyes, I couldn't take a good picture of myself for the life of me. Half of them were blurry. I still can't find my camera cord, so this one was taken with Chris's (my old) camera, and the button is really hard to push when you are holding your arm out. Oh well, at least you get to see the tummy.

Wow, awesome! Sounds like this might be a breeze. You might want to stop there though, the next one might not be so easy... LOL :)
