  • 28 Week Pregnancy Update

    How far along? 28 weeks!

    Total weight gain/measurements: 124 lbs, I am supposed to gain about a pound a week from now on! 

    Maternity clothes: Its getting hard to wear any of my pre-pregnancy clothes. Up until now I have been getting away with stretchy shirts and tank tops, but my belly is so big, it sticks out on the bottom. So I think I am going to buy a belly band because I am not really into spending money on "maternity" tops. With the exception of pants, of course! I have a few pairs of maternity leggings and yoga pants which have been amazing! 

    Stretch marks? Not yet! I have been using sweet almond oil twice a day.

    Sleep: Movement has picked up this past week and I can feel him all at hours, his little squirms don't keep my up yet. BUT my back pains have! 

    Best moment this week:  Getting his closet put together. I am a freak for organization and Phil built the perfect closet system so let the OCD organizing begin!! :)

    We also reserved our "mom and pop" car at the Subaru dealership this week! We had some custom requests (of course) so we should have our new ride mid-Feb! We are SOOOO excited! 

    Miss anything? The 2nd trimester. LOL. It was SUCH an easy 3 months! As soon as I passed over that third trimester mark, it felt like everything changed! I became bigger, more tired, more moody and just NOT comfortable. 

    Movement: I love my little ninja! I just started reading in to baby mapping. I kind of don't get it, but I THINK he might be sideways?!?! I have the bulge on the right side of my belly button or where my belly button USED to be, so either thats his little (or big, like his father hehe) head or his bum. BUT when I went to my 28 week OB appointment, she found his heart at the bottom of my belly. UGH, I don't even know! I am just going to ask her next time. lol 

    Food cravings: slurpee! 

    Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing new. Still can't stand Old Bay or popcorn (barf!!)

    Gender: IT'S A BOY!!!!!!! My Moy Boy <3 

    Symptoms: Now that I am well into the third trimester, things are def different. As mentioned above, I am mad uncomfortable because I am getting so round, and my tiny upper body is having trouble supporting so much extra weight. I am much more tired this week and could literally sleep for days!!!! But I have too much to do for all of that. 

    Up until this week, I have had a pain-free pregnancy. I noticed some cramping and abdomen pains the other day and LOST MY SHIT! I though I may have been going into preterm labor which is my nightmare! My doc office wasn't open so I called the midwives at the hospital who calmed me right down! They told me to take a Tylenol and pop a heating pad only lower tummy for 5 minutes. I did just that and relaxed for the rest of they day, while my amazing baby daddy went out and got my crabby ass a slurpee, a snickers bar and Chinese take out. Everything a pregnant girl could want.  

    Belly button in or out? In, but just barely. Its pretty much flat at this point.. NOT CUTE but whatever. 

    Wedding rings on or off? On!

    Happy or moody most of the time: I've been happy but my tolerance for anything relating to an animal in pain will ruin my entire day. We are talking tears for HOURS. Usually I let it out for a minute and I am done, still sad, but no more tears. Not the case now. I will literally cry for hours if I see an animal in pain or being abused. :(

    Looking forward to: The baby shower, our new car and finishing up a few of my diy projects! 

    We have baby registries at Target and Amazon! (for those of you who have asked)
