28 weeks

Isn't that a movie?  Anyway, not for this post.  That's how far along I am.  I know...I haven't even really "announced" here that I'm expecting again.  And did I mention it's a girl?!?  After 2 boys, everyone asks me ALL the time, "Aren't you excited?"  And I am...but honestly, after a miscarriage, the last thing I was concerned about was the sex of the baby.  AT ALL.  People who have never experienced infertility or miscarriage have the luxury of caring about that trivial stuff.  God bless them, they have no idea.  But the question gets a little infuriating after awhile.

The first trimester lasted an eternity (in my head), and every tiny little movement, lack thereof, symptom, etc, I over-analyzed to the point of psychosis.  But alas, we are now in the third trimester (!!!) and everything has gone absolutely smoothly so far.  I've had about 5 ultrasounds, and they've all been perfect, thank you GOD!!!  I even had some bleeding around 9 weeks and was sure it was over.  But we went in for an emergency ultrasound and the little pistol was in there moving around.  She's gonna give me a stroke one day, I'm sure.

At my last ultrasound, which was at 26 weeks, they noticed that her stomach was measuring bigger than the rest of her body (29 weeks!!!).  They were concerned about my glucose, but I just got the results of my last one-hour glucose test, and it wasn't even remotely near the danger zone.  My OB isn't concerned, she said we'll just keep an eye on her overall size, so she doesn't get too big.  But I'm wondering if anyone else has ever had this issue and what the result was.  DON'T TELL ME if it's a horror story.  Please - I DO NOT need unnecessary worry right now!!!  Haha!  But if you have any insight, let me know.

Eventually I'll post an ultrasound pic.  But today is a snow day and I just don't have it in me to walk upstairs to the scanner right now!  :)


  1. Congratulations! Grow, baby, grow. I am totally with you about the gender of the baby. After multiple miscarriages, I would be happy with holding a live baby in my arms, no matter what the gender.

  2. I'm so glad things are going well! Girls are great (though I'm biased), but Marie is right, the best blessing is a healthy baby!

  3. oh congrats! I thought I read something about a pregnancy and was like, huh?! glad to hear about the little one :)
