Pregnancy: Week 28

In case you missed the announcement, read more about my blog name change HERE!
__________________________________________________________________________
HELLO, THIRD TRIMESTER!
Dress: Old Navy (non-maternity) / Cardigan: Old Navy
How far along: 28 weeks. Can you believe there's only 12 weeks left until Kensie's due date?!?!?!

Baby Size: About 2.5 pounds, and 16 inches from head to toe.
 
Gender: A baby girl! 

Movement: Homegirl moves a lot, and I love every split second of it. At 28 weeks, she may start hiccuping, so I can't wait to feel that too.

Best moment this week: Passing my Gestational Diabetes test!!! Thank ya, Jesus! The main reason that I was concerned was because diabetes runs in my family, but my doctor assured me that it has nothing to do with the outcome of my glucose test. He even said that every pregnancy is different, meaning that I could potentially development it in future pregnancies. So interesting. Just glad that I am still processing sugars normally now that I'm pregnant with Kensington. 
 
Looking forward to: Next week because we're having our second anatomy scan! It's been about 2 months since I've seen my baby girl on an ultrasound, so I am just so stinking excited.
 
What I miss: NOTHING. So thrilled to be in my third trimester. Praying for continued comfort and growth for my baby girl. I am willing to take on any discomfort for my princess. 
 
Symptoms: I have been feeling like it's a little tougher to breathe just because she seems to be sitting up so high. But that's about it.
 
Nursery: Thanks to my in-laws, we got the topper to our changing table over the weekend. Hubby assembled that and now all it's missing is the changing pad. Once I get that and hang up the rest of the decorations on the wall, her nursery will be finished!!! Can you believe it?!

Wedding rings on or off? Partially on/partially off. I have three pieces to my rings: an engagement ring, a wedding band, and a guard that goes around my engagement ring. I can no longer wear my guard because it makes the ring too thick. My engagement ring and wedding band are still on, but they're tight!

Daddy-isms: Got up on Sunday morning to go get hubby and I some coffee (mine is always decaf), and as I was leaving, he wants to rub my belly. It' just little moments like that which make me so happy. I am getting more and more excited to see Kensie and daddy fall in love!

Prayer: Thank you so much, Jesus, for getting us to this point in the pregnancy. I couldn't feel more blessed. I am praying for continued growth for my baby girl. As she starts to develop a more consistent sleep cycle, I pray that her dreams are filled with thoughts of her creator. I pray for Kensington's development too - that she will grow to be a healthy little girl upon her due date. Lord, will you please have you hand over Kensington and I? Thank you for your love and mercy. In Jesus' name I pray, amen!

  2. So I've decided for all of our future pregnancies, we are going to just ship each other our maternity clothes to use until the other is pregnant again! Deal, ok good! ;) Loving the new name change! You totally threw me for a loop (i.e. the email I just sent you! haha) I can't believe she will be here in 12 weeks!!! Oh my goodness!!! Can't wait to meet her!

  10. How exciting for another anatomy ultrasound! We had extras too and it's incredible to see baby again. Ask for 4D pic if you haven't gotten one. Our ultrasound tech was so sweet and gave us photos of her face that aren't supposed to be included without paying for the 4d scan! And I hope she starts hiccuping, CHP did and it's so funny to see her hiccup now and remember feeling that when she was inside! Happy third trimester mama!
