    Default 28 Weeks!

    YAY! 28 weeks!!! It feels awfully weird sometimes being all, "Yay! Decreased risks of death or life-altering conditions like cerebral palsy!" But really ... YAY!

    And here's where I start whining...

    Holy cow I guess I didn't fully realize this was going to get more boring and more uncomfortable by the minute. Yesterday I went out to get my flu shot and it was the most excitement I've had all week! Bo-ring. And the heartburn, OH DEAR GOD the HEARTBURN! I feel like the days of non-stop eating are far behind me and I can't consume more than a couple of bites at a time. Even a plum caused me to feel like I just ate two Thanksgiving dinners and required a two-hour digestion nap.

    Congrats...every week is a milestone. I can't relate to the boredom mostly because I worked through (no bed rest, YAY) and we had so much to do before the babies arrived. But, I can completely relate with heartburn/small meals. I went through 4 lg containers of tums with this pregnancy. And I could not eat a full meal, I'd be so hungry but could only eat a small amount....frustrating. Just thinking, you only have 10 weeks left, if that. It goes so fast.

    Congrats on 28 weeks! That is indeed a wonderful milestone.

    I can fully relate on the heartburn and things becoming increasingly uncomfortable. I (literally) have not slept more than 2 straight hours in weeks. I either have to pee, have shoulder/neck pain, back pain or contractions that awaken me every 60-90 minutes. I am usually in tears at some point during the night. I am trying to nap some during the day, but only have limited success there. I am downing the tums but also use Zantac (Category B for pregnancy) for the heartburn which my OB said was fine. It does help some, but not completely.

    Hang in there!! You are indeed in the final stretch now!!!

    Wahooooo!!!! Yay for 28 weeks!

    It was right around then when I realized exactly HOW uncomfortable I was going to feel for the next 8-10 weeks.

    Hope your heartburn let's you sleep some.

    Yay! Congrats on making it to this milestone!

    As for the heartburn and meals, yes, it is going to get uncomfy. I took prescription Zantac and it helped enough, but I was taking it as often as I was allowed. I still had heartburn with it. I also stopped eating a lot, which worried me, but I just could not get much food in there. As for the napping, go for it. All the sleep you are doing helps the little ones grow. I slept a lot the last 8 weeks of the pregnancy.

    I second the zantac. The heartburn was miserable for me toward the end, or half way through. When I finally asked the doc for something he said it was a no brainer, and it helped a ton. It did not eliminate it, but certainly helped. I did not have it with my singleton pregnancies at all.

    That's amazing- major milestone to celebrate!

    I'm sorry about the heartburn! I had severe indigestion from weeks 6-9, but it has subsided mostly. I'm sure it will reappear as my belly grows. I hope you can find relief so the final weeks aren't too uncomfortable.
