28 Week Bumpdate and a couple Sneak Peeks.

How Far Along: 28 Weeks: The start of the Third Trimester!
(You can check out my 28 week post from when I was pregnant with Jackson here.)


 Size of Baby: (According to babycenter.com) 28 weeks: By this week, your baby weighs 2 1/4 pounds (about the size of a large eggplant) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes.
 

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I had a dr. appt. at 25 weeks and was up 19 pounds then. She was measuring 1 week ahead as she has been for a majority of this pregnancy. I go to the Dr. again next Monday, so I'll have a better idea of my weight gain then.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity clothes.


Gender: Its a GIRL!!! I think we're really close to a name! I hope to share it soon.


Movement: Yes, she's moving around quite a bit now, and I love it.


Food Cravings: I did have a craving for Mexican yesterday, so we had it for lunch and it was very yummy. :-)


What I miss: Just being able to do normal things without feeling tired or out of breath. I also miss being able to wear my wedding rings, which I haven't been able to wear for quite some time now. :-(


Sleep: Having to get up at least once a night to use the restroom and just can't seem to get comfortable sometimes.


Symptoms: A growing belly, and some sciatic nerve pain that has actually felt a little better this past weekend. I'm also having a few Braxton Hicks contractions here and there and some pain under my right ribs, which I had with Jackson as well. I've also had a little bit of heartburn that comes and goes.


Best Moment this week: Picking out the fabric for Baby Girl's nursery bedding. My sister is making the bedding, curtains and recovering a chair for the nursery! I'm so excited and can't wait to see it all done.

Here's a little sneak peek of the fabric we got. I really love it!

We also got fabric to recover Jackson's infant car-seat rather than buying a new one. She was able to work on that yesterday and got a majority of it done!! It turned out so super cute!! I just love it.

What I am looking forward to: Deciding on a definite name for baby girl and getting her nursery ready. I'm also looking forward to my next Dr. appt. where we'll get to schedule my c-section and have a date to look forward to meeting our sweet Baby Girl! My baby shower is also something I'm looking forward to which will be next month! I can't believe we're already in the third trimester!!

Now that you've been way pregnant in summer and winter, which do you prefer?

Can't wait to hear her name! Girl names are so tough...it will probably take us the next 19 weeks to decide!

I stumbled upon your blog through "This Wonderful Life." And I love it. These types of blogs are always my favourite …. such great stories to read.

Also, I must say … those fabrics are awesome. I love bright pinks - never can go wrong in my opinion!

LOVE the fabric for the nursery! So bold & colorful. And recovering the carseat cover. Adore! I would have never thought of that!
