Weekly Update: 28 weeks

Had a little growth spurt this week. Ben and I kept laughing at how my belly rounded a bit and looks like I have a beach ball under my clothes.

How far along: 28 weeks (third trimester!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Total weight gain/loss: 28 lbs which my doctor said was fine because it is all belly

Maternity clothes: I am getting so bored with my same old clothes, but on the other hand, I rarely need anything fancy with my job. Still needing to find things for my showers and maternity pics

Stretch marks: Still no

Sleep: I have been sleeping really hard. I think it has something to do with everyday, working my butt off doing stuff for the nursery and my body hating me for it so it is needing more rest.

Best moment this week: I had my 28 week OB appointment and everything went great. Pumpkin has a strong heartbeat, I am not showing any risk for preterm labor, my weight is fine and the best news, I passed my one hour glucose test. Yay!!!

Movement: My doctor wanted to me start doing kick counts if I have not felt him for a couple of hours Well Wednesday and Thursday it was like he was showing off, then Friday he decided to torture mommy and move just once an hour. He has been back to his normal activity the past few days now.

Food cravings: My iced coffee and milk

Food aversions: Bell peppers still bother me apparently. I had some spaghetti sauce we had frozen months ago and while I just tried to ignore them, I could tell if they were more prominent, I would not be able to eat it.

Gender: BOY (which lately I am getting more and more excited about)

Labor Signs: Nope and that was confirmed by my doctor

Belly Button in or out? It is not going to budge

What I miss: There are a couple of pregnancy side effects that I could really do without right now, but they are totally worth it.

What I am looking forward to: On the baby front, we have our hospital tour and childbirth class this week and I cannot wait to get them over with. Other than that, my mom is coming down in a week and a half and I cannot wait until she sees the nursery and then we are all heading to the beach for the Miller Family vacation.

Weekly Wisdom: I started reading one of my baby books and already in the first chapter it addresses a part of parenting that I feel like is super important to us. It made me feel better.

Milestones: Being in the third trimester is huge! The second trimester flew by, especially compared to the first which was torture. Now just to wait another 10-12 weeks (hopefully) to meet our little guy. I am so excited but trying to enjoy the next few months and all they bring.

Measurements: Chest- +.5, Waist- +1”, Hips- +1.5”, Circumference- +1”

Nursery Progress Update

-All the furniture is built and in place.
-We have a new, neutral cover on the futon and I made a skirt to go along the front so you can not see the stuff we stored underneath it.
-I made the tree wall decal and we put it up. (That took so much longer than I thought it would, and it was too much physical activity for this girl. Lots of moving around on my hands and knees for hours on end).
-We put up his name banner over his bed.
-We got some space saver bags to help us store some things and they are awesome.

We are waiting on few things to be delivered but we should be all done, except for the few things we expect to get from showers, by the end of next week.
