Wednesday, October 3, 2012


This little girl was sick yesterday, but you’d never know it today.  She woke up around 4 am complaining of a sore throat and had a 101.8 fever.  By 4:30 am, she was throwing up every 10 minutes for 5 HOURS!  It was awful.  The first 10+ times, she threw up into a bowl.  Then, she became so tired and so weak, that she couldn’t even sit up and would just throw up laying down.  By 10 am, it had finally stopped and she slept until noon.  When I went in at noon she exclaimed, “I feel better!  Can you take a video of me?” (She loves to have videos taken of her on her ipod.") She’s gone nonstop since then and bounced back in pure Olivia style.  Crazy.  Ryan is sick with an awful sore throat, but I’m still feeling fine.  Hoping and praying it spares me!  But, at least Olivia is back to normal.

28 Weeks


Current size of baby: 2 lbs

How far along? 28 Weeks

Total weight gain 25 lbs

Inches Gained: 5.5 inches

Maternity clothes? YES

Sleep: Not good at all. The restlessness is horrible. I’ve dealt with it for years, but it has intensified in pregnancy and lasts until about 4 am.  Then, I sleep good for about 3-4 hours until Olivia wakes up. 

How I'm feeling: Very optimistic about having a full term baby. Frustrated with my blood sugars.

Best moment this week: Spending time with my family this past weekend.

Movement: Yes

Food cravings: Anything and everything, unfortunately.

Food aversions: None

Gender: Girl named Abigail

Labor Signs: NO

Belly Button in or out? out

What I miss: Carbs.

What I am looking forward to: Maternity pictures that a friend of mine is taking next weekend. She is starting her own photography business. She is doing the pictures for free so that she can use them in her portfolio.
