Pregnancy Highlights-Week 28

I've been feeling really uncomfortable this week. My doctor seems to think I am having Braxton Hicks contractions, and for some reason, that makes me really nervous. I guess I had one while she was trying to measure me at my appointment on Tuesday. I just thought it was the babies stretching out! Tells you how much I know! She said to call her if I have more than 4 an hour, and now I find myself writing the time down everytime I get one. I guess I am just worried that my body is going to go into pre-term labor. It freaks me out!

I have to start going for weekly doctor visits, which actually is quite all right with me. I just want to keep making sure that everything is fine. Yes, I know...I am a worrywart. I just want my babies to be ok!


How Far Along: 28 Weeks

Total Weight Gain: 38 lbs.

Sleep: What's sleep? Seriously, I wake up almost every hour because I am either uncomfortable or I have to pee. Or I'm thirsty. Or I just can't sleep. Thank goodness for the Golf Channel.

Best Moment This Week: Ordered our cribs and carpet for the nursery, got our stroller (it was the last one in the Grand Rapids area!) and one carseat. One more carseat to go.

Gender: Girls

Movement: Yes! They scoot around all the time.
Food Craving: Sonic's Cherry Limeade

What I Miss: Walking at a normal pace. I waddle and it takes me forever to get anywhere.

What I'm Looking Forward To: Finishing the nursery and finally settling on a name for Baby A. Yes, we are still thinking long and hard. We can't decide.

Weekly Wisdom: ?????

Symptoms: Acid reflux in the middle of the night, Braxton Hicks (I think.), hands and feet swelling at the end of the day (I had to finally take off my wedding rings. It may sound silly, but I was a little sad about it).
