28 Weeks ~ 3rd Trimester!!

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 28 Weeks. I start the 3rd trimester today! Time is flying by!

Size of Baby: The baby weighs 2 1/4 pounds now (like a chinese cabbage) and is about 14.8 inches from head to heal.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: At my 24 week Dr. appt. I had gained 18 pounds total. The baby was also measuring 2 weeks ahead. I have my 28 week appt. on Friday, so I'll find out my actual weight gain then.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity clothes.

Gender: Its a BOY!! Jackson Thomas Smith

Movement: Yes, he's moving around A LOT now, and I love it.

Food Cravings: Pasta and sweets.

What I miss: Sleeping well.

Sleep: Still not sleeping very well these days. Just can't seem to get comfortable. Tossing and turning a lot.

Symptoms: I'm still having this pain under my right ribs and around to my back. The chiropractor seems to think its the ligaments pulling, due to my ever expanding uterus or I guess it could be the baby on a nerve.

Best Moment this week: Ordering all the furniture for Jackson's nursery! I can't wait to get it all put together in his room.

What I am looking forward to: Getting Jackson's room ready, my baby shower on Sept. 10th and getting to meet Jackson in Oct.

Thanks Holly. I have a friend who passed along a lot of her maternity clothes. Tons of Motherhood stuff. Love that she saved it all because they have really come in handy. According to my pregnancy ticker, I have 84 more days. Thats til 40 weeks, so he could always come a little earlier than that! ;-)
