28 Weeks Update

Holy smokes I am now in the third trimester! According to thebump.com Baby B us the size of an eggplant (13.6 – 14.8 inches) and weighs anywhere from 1.5 – 2.2 lbs!

Weeks: 28

Total Weight Gain: About 15 pounds.

My Body: Feeling good but noticeably larger. I notice this the most when I bend down to pick something up or put on my shoes. I am experiencing acne for the first time in my life and it kind of freaks me out! I know it is all hormones because my diet hasn’t changed drastically, but I am kind of self conscious about it.

Also, my feet swelled up for the first time last night! I spent too much time prepping food in the kitchen and next thing I know I have my feet above me head on the couch because my toes were all red and puffy. You always hear about it, but it’s so crazy when it actually happens to you!

Maternity Clothes: Almost exclusively. Still a few items still hanging by a thread.

Cravings: I wasn’t craving anything until my Mom brought me some kettlecorn and now I cannot stop eating it! #pregnantladycrack

Sleep: Awful. In all fairness though it is due to a combination of pregnancy (can’t get comfortable, pee breaks, weird dreams, etc) and Mika being so sick still. We are trying to even out her insulin levels and she still can’t walk properly by herself. She has improved significantly from two weeks ago, but we both need pee breaks in the middle of the night and this results in me helping her get down the stairs and go outside to pee at 2 am. She also has started panting heavily at night too so that’s fun.

Baby Items Bought/Received: Still trying to figure out decor for Baby B’s room. It’s a lot harder than I expected and I have asked for reinforcements to come in (my sister) who has an eye for this kind of thing.

Best Baby Moment: Brian listening to Baby B and leaving a perfect ear imprint on my stomach.

Bump_EarCrazy how my the bottom of my belly button ring hole is now on the top of my belly button!

Goals: Getting the nursery done! Or at least some photos put into all the empty frames on the wall…

Worries: None.

Looking Forward To: He still has to cook for a bit longer but already he has such a personality in there and I just can’t wait to meet him 🙂
