Week 28

Week 27 baby bump.

Added baby weight is taking its toll on your body. Chances are you're feeling aches and pains all over! Your feet, ankles, and hands may be swollen. Cramps may cause intense pain in your legs, especially at night, and it may be hard to find a comfortable sleeping position. You may also be experiencing false contractions (called Braxton Hicks) where your abdomen tightens, then relaxes. Hang in there—you're getting closer to your due date!
Your uterus is around three inches above your navel. If you are Rh negative, you'll be getting a RhoGam injection right around now. And those tightening sensations? Braxton Hicks "practice" contractions.
***So far, I haven't felt any Braxton Hicks that I can tell. I don't have any swelling, but after the concert last night my legs and ankles were killing me. I am Rh negative, so I have that RhoGam shot to look forward to. :)
