28 Weeks

March 12, 2009

So, it turns out that my rib cage pain isn’t just the result of growing pains — Biskit has given me gallstones. Yay! So I’m on a strict low-fat, bland diet from now until she’s born. No more cheese/pizza/cookies/spicy food. I bet you can imagine how I feel about THAT.


The good news is that, thus far, the new diet does seem to be helping the pain. I also feel less miserable in general (see: A Whiny Post).

Aside from the gallstones, I’ve been having SO much fun lately convincing my hipbones to work together. Every morning, it takes me a few minutes to get out of bed because apparently my hipbones fight overnight and are no longer speaking to each other by morning. Come on, guys! WORK with me here. I can’t make emergency runs to the bathroom without you.

Speaking of bathroom runs, I believe Biskit is finally messing with my bladder. I’ve been carrying so high that my pregnancy related issues tend to be more in the upper end of my torso than the lower, but she’s decided that sitting on my bladder is FUN. So much fun! Also fun — kicking my cervix (as she is doing right this second). What a delight you are, little baby!


At my doctor’s appointment yesterday, I was told I am measuring two weeks ahead of schedule, so 30 weeks instead of 28. This revelation shocks exactly NO ONE who has seen me lately.


As we were watching TV last night, Matt turned to me and said, “I just want you to know that I’m not letting Biskit out of my sight from the minute she’s born until we leave the hospital. I’ve heard all about those stories of hospitals switching babies, and there’s NO WAY that we’re gonna get someone else’s troglodyte baby while someone else gets our AWESOME baby with our AMAZING genes!”

Heh. Troglodyte babies.


Lamaze starts next week. Holy crap! We’re really having a baby up in this piece!

    next ultrasound = twins!

    Yay twins!

  5. Phil — Seriously, one more comment like that, and I will come and hurt you.

    I hope the hospital doesn’t switch our babies…I guess I should mark them with a Sharpie when they come out.
