Mommy Mondays - Paisley Jean Update

It has been approximately four weeks since I have done a Baby Paisley update!  So I needed to share the latest pregnancy news in today's Mommy Mondays post!

My 25 Weeks Baby Bump!!!  John and I had a wedding to attend that day, and Paisley got to join us! She is as big as an eggplant and was growing hair and nails that week! 

26 Weeks and Paisley is as big as a head of lettuce!  At this point in her development she is able to open her eyes! I cannot wait to see if she will have the same blue eyes as Lacie and Blakely! 

27 Weeks!  Paisley weighs in at 2 pound and is as long as a cucumber at this stage in the pregnancy!  27 weeks also marks the last week of the second trimester! 

28 Weeks Baby Bump!  At 28 weeks you are considered to be officially in the third trimester, which is the final home stretch.  Paisley is the size of a head of cauliflower (and is approximately 2.5 pounds).  I was actually 28 weeks and 2 days in this picture which means only 82 days to go!  Although due to me needing to have a scheduled c-section, it will most likely be 75 days!  Eeek it's really getting super close!  

On Friday, I got this update from my What to Expect app! 

In other baby news, I had a doctor's appointment last Tuesday at 27 1/2 weeks.  During this appointment, I got to do the super fun Glucose test that happens between 24 and 28 weeks of pregnancy.  You drink a terrible drink and wait an hour for them to draw your blood.  It is truly torture, but I can happily report that I PASSED!

They don't do too much at these appointments until you get further along, but I did get to listen to sweet Paisley's heartbeat which sounded just perfect!

They also took my blood pressure...three times...needless to say it was high thanks to that Glucose Test.  I was told that it needs to be lower by my appointment on October 21st!  I am trying my best to lower it naturally because I do not want to have to go on bed rest (I wouldn't be very good at that).  My blood pressure is normally low, so I am hoping that this self corrects in the next two weeks.

I was also informed that my blood work showed I am anemic so I need to take extra iron!  This is something that I have even when I'm not pregnant so it never surprises me that I have even lower iron when I am carrying a baby.

Come back in a few weeks for another Paisley Jean update!
