28 weeks...going on 35

28 weeks, wow, that is 7 months. This pregnancy has flown by. But 2 1/2 months still seems so far away.

I went to the doctor this week and it was by far the worst appointment so far. I got a shot in my butt and had to take the glucose test. YUCK. You have to drink a REALLY REALLY sugary drink and then get your blood drawn. I have horrifically small veins so it is always really painful to get my blood drawn. They took it from my hand, yucky.

Then, the doctor told me that my uterus is measuring at 35 weeks, not 28 weeks. I was shocked and asked what does that mean? He just said it means she is going to be a big baby. Thank goodness I am already planning on a C-section. But he didn't seem worried, there is still time and she might have just gone through a growth spurt.

I went home and looked up what that means, and found this picture that helps explain it.

I am supposed to be at 28 weeks, but am measuring at 35. WOW, he didn't change the due date or anything, so we will see what happens. I am a little nervous that it means I have Gestational diabetes, but we will see. Jared says that I am a hypochondriac.

We are getting close, I am super excited.

PS still no name yet.

Ugh, you just reminded me of so many bad things about pregnancy. I hope you are doing well.

holy growth spurt indeed! and goodness your doc needs to get up on the times... when I did the glucose test they just had to prick my finger, thank goodness. I do NOT do well with the blood drawing! And what's the shot in the butt? I hope that's not coming for me!

Hooray for no shot in the butt for me! (Yet....!) I'm pretty sure I'm good on blood type; thank goodness!!! I'll try to think of something to post besides a belly pic... I am getting bigger; that's kinda all though! I still feel pretty good. I did throw up last week which was a sad moment after 10 weeks of no barfs! But it's all good.... feeling her move makes everything worth it to me! Are you having a baby shower? Are you excited for a little GIRL?! I sure am. Starting to get super nervous though too! Love ya. :)
