28 Weeks: Hello Third Trimester!


How far along? 28 Weeks...and I'm in the final stretch!
Baby Size: rutabaga or Chinese cabbage?!  Not too sure what either of those are, but baby is plumping up and weighs around 2 pounds. 
Total weight gain: 17+ pounds  I'm inching to the 20 pound mark!
Maternity clothes? All maternity bottoms and still able to wear pre-preggo tops.
Stretch marks? No...fingers crossed I can keep this answer the same over the next 12 weeks!
Sleep: Still sleeping well, just harder to switch from side to side.
Best moment this week: Let's see...SO excited to be in the final trimester and we finally got our rocker in this past week.  The nursery is really coming along!
Miss Anything? Being able to cross my legs in order to put my shoes on.  Impossible now.
Movement: Yep, he' still wriggling around a ton.
Food cravings: Nothing out of the ordinary...still sweets for the most part!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Again, nothing out of the ordinary.  It's hard to eat big meals...I get really full, which makes me queasy!
Gender: All boy and we've just about narrowed down the name!  EEE!!
Labor Signs: No...can't believe in the next 12 weeks or so that this answer could change!
Symptoms: I got some sort of stomach flu this past week, which was miserable...not being able to take medicine to relieve the pain might be one of the worst parts about being preggo.  Also some tailbone pain.
Belly Button in or out? Still in...but very funny looking.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: Still happy...and emotional at times.  Ryan and I are starting to talk more and more about this little guy's arrival and how profoundly he'll change our lives.  Definitely gets me teary eyed thinking of this huge blessing that's about to enter our lives.  :)
Looking forward to: Due to my stomach flu, I had to postpone my glucose test...so I'll be doing that today and then looking forward to my 29 week appointment this week!  Oh also getting the bedding for the crib this week...I'll have to share another update soon!

And I just want to say THANK YOU for all the sweeter than sweet comments on my baby shower last week!  If you missed it, you can catch it here.

  20. You look great! I remember being disappointed when putting my shoes became difficult. There also came a point when balancing myself while shaving in the shower was a challenge. It's all part of the experience though.
