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!!
