|Bump Update 28 Weeks
So I go back to do the blood work and I explain to the nurse/needle lady that I was in the hospital on Sunday and it may be easier to use my left arm instead of my right since I was still bruised on the right from the hospital. She takes a look at both and says that the vein on the right is better so she is going to use that one. Well, she sticks me and then can't get the needle into the vein so eventually agrees that yes, the left would have been better. She then does my left arm but instead of just sticking the vein she rolls the needle into it, which FYI, does not feel good at all. Hopefully, this is the last time until I go into labor that I will have to be stuck with needles.
On a lighter note, I registered for the "Prepared Birthing Class" at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center that starts next Wednesday. The class lasts for 6 weeks and is every Wednesday from 7pm-9:30pm (I hope they do a snack break, LOL). I am sure I will have some funny and interesting things to post after these classes. I also have a doctor's appointment next Wednesday so hopefully only good news after that.
How your baby's growing:
By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of his head to his heels. He can blink his eyes, which now sport lashes. With his eyesight developing, he may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. He's also developing billions of neurons in his brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.
