28 Weeks & a B-Day!!

Yesterday was Jess’ Birthday!!  She turned the big 31!!  We both thought we would have long been parents by now, but all I can say is that we are blessed.  Better late than never!!

Last week we had our final (hopefully) appointment with the high risk / super cervix measuring doc.  The measurement remained the same from when the original shortening occurred.  The doc felt comfortable that this would probably be the status quo for the rest of pregnancy.  The only thing that could drastically reduce the size of the cervix quickly, would be labor.  We got a couple more snapshots, and he sent us on our way.  We graduated from another doc!! Woo Hoo!!

 

 

 Now on to Chooch!!

 

How far along? 28 weeks 3 Days!

How Big Is Choochie? Choochie is now about 2.5 pounds and almost 16 inches long, the size of a Chinese Cabbage.  She’s busy adding new skills such as blinking to an already impressive repertoire of tricks like coughing, sucking, hiccuping, and taking practice breaths. Choochies sleep now includes the REM (rapid eye movement) phase — and that means she could be dreaming already.  Though her lungs are nearly fully mature, she still has plenty of growing to do.

Sleep?  Jess dreads the time at night when we go to bed!!

Movement? Sometimes Choochie looks like she’s going to jump right out of Jess’ belly!!

Food cravings?Bar Pie, Chicken Parm, Chicken Fraincaise, Gatorade (red), Pink Lemonade, Water, any type of sweets!!!!

Gender 

Milestones? We are officially in the third trimester!

Emotions: Ups and Downs!!

My husband and I are going to be going through similar treatments for MFI (first S/A= 1 sperm, Second S/A= 0 sperm, Biopsy= Sertoli Cell Only)Your story has really brightened my day and made the little bit of hope that we have a bit more realistic. Thank you again and congratulations on everything you have overcome.
