Bump Update - 28 Weeks
Hello third trimester!!
Baby boy will now turn his head to follow a bright light shining on my belly. He is also getting used to blinking his eyes and even has eyelashes.
This week I've had a touch of heartburn but not as much as I did with Paige, maybe because I carried her higher.
My wrist no longer hurts and my fingers aren't as swollen.
I had my 28 week midwife appointment this week. I had routine blood work done just to check antibodies and my iron levels. I do think my iron levels will be still low so I'll have to go back on my iron tablets but we will see! My blood pressure was low but my midwife wasn't worried as it's normally quite low anyway. This week was also the first week that she measured my belly. It actually measured 27cm so I'm measuring a little behind (I was 28w+4d at my appointment) but it's nothing to worry about as I measured 2 weeks behind with Paige and we all know how much of a chunk she was! Baby boy also has 12 weeks left to grow so maybe he will have a growth spurt in the next few weeks. My next appointment is at 31 weeks.
I'm feeling pretty good this week. The weight gain isn't playing on my mind as much. Baby boy is still kicking up a storm and I feel him moving all day. I've craved tea and cake this week so I may have made two batches of fairy cakes!
Don't forget to check out my 27 week update and Paige's 28 week update.
