Pregnancy Update | 28 Weeks

Tuesday, July 9, 2019

How many weeks: 28 weeks! Hello third trimester!

How big is the baby: Babe is the size of a large eggplant, about 2.25 pounds.

Total weight gain: 9 or 10 pounds

Maternity clothes: Of course! Sometimes I can still squeeze into non-maternity dresses, depending on the style. Love this one (which I'm wearing in the photo above!) and this one!

How is sleeping going: It's ok. I ended up getting a full length, $10 body pillow from Target to replace my old, flattened maternity pillow and it does the trick. I find myself switching sides a lot, but overall I can't complain!

Symptoms: I feel really good most of the time, but I've had some recent sciatica (ouch!), which I've never experienced before. It must just be the way baby girl sits sometimes. Also a touch of restless leg syndrome is coming back at nights, which I experienced with Hadley's pregnancy.

Best moment this week: A healthy 28 week doctor appointment, hearing her heartbeat, feeling and seeing her move a ton!

Cravings: Not craving anything too strongly right now. Just lots of sparkling water to keep hydrated in this July heat!

Aversions: Still some meat. Not really in the mood for chicken. 

Gender: Another girlfriend! <3 

What I miss: This might sound cliche, but this is probably my last pregnancy so I'm just trying to soak it all in... even the sometimes uncomfortable parts. 

What I'm looking forward to: Scheduling my c-section and knowing her birthday (ahhh!) in the next week or so, finishing the nursery, nesting, even more movement. :)
