A little part of me can't believe I've made it this far. The last few weeks has been turbulent to say the least and it looks like there may be more to come.
Bump at 28 weeks pregnant
Bump Very little, if any, change in bump size for the past 4 weeks.
Scans The consultant told me I was measuring small - I had figured that out having looked around the Glucose testing waiting room where everyone was 28 weeks. He also wasn't happy about baby's abdominal circumference but was reassured that there had been at least some growth between that scan and the previous. He did an ultrasound but the important one is in the Fetal Diagnostic Clinic tomorrow. Nervous. Nervous. Nervous.
Glucose Tolerance Testing Fasting from the night before - boo hoo. Multiple blood tests - good look finding a vein even for the first one. The lucozade they make you drink - bleuch!! I'm not concerned about gestational diabetes. It's just a formality because of PCOS. In fact, I left the clinic and had a big slice of carrot cake :) After a many failed attempts to get any blood from my veins and going into the same veins twice I deserved it!
Maternity clothes I'm so small this time that there is no need. I took down my maternity clothes last week and tried them on but they're all too big. If this bump doesn't get bigger there will be no need for them at all. Fingers crossed there is some growth soon.
Appetite/Weight My appetite is normal and I'm eating well. I'm addicted to crisp red grapes, Pink Lady apples and the pink French Fancies. No cravings though. Weight has stayed the same for the 4th week in a row despite eating what I want. Not good.
All in all things aren't looking great are they?! At least baby is moving well and I'm 28 weeks so if I need to be delivered soon it's not the end of the world. I'm hoping that the scan shows some growth has occurred tomorrow. Otherwise I fear I may not be pregnant for very much longer!
I hope all of you pregnant ladies are relaxed and getting spoiled whilst raiding the fridge!
My fingers and toes are crossed.
