Bumpdate {28 weeks}

November 24, 2014

how far along: 28 weeks, 2 days {hello, third trimester!}

Bumpdate {28 weeks}    Bumpdate - 28 weeks

size of baby: an eggplant {13.6-14.8 inches, 1.5-2.5 pounds}

gender: baby girl!

weight gain: I’m pretty sure I was a little off with my starting weight the past couple weeks! I realized this morning on the scale I’m up 21 pounds to 147! {for the first time I wished my starting weight was 128 like I was thinking, not 126}

maternity clothes: yes! I’ve been loving these maternity jeans I got from the Destination Maternity corner in Macys! the full panel actually goes all the way past my bump and doesn’t cut in like my Gap pair started to do…and they’re super stretchy! good one J. Simp!

stretch marks: keeping them away with my Mustela cream!

rings: on, but feeling a bit tighter these days…

nursery: since this little update at 26 weeks, the crib arrived {the hubby & I set it up that night} and I found a canvas print at Kohl’s that I just love!

movement: still moving all over the place! especially in the early morning and after I lay down after work or dinner!

symptoms: some back pain still, but nothing that I can’t handle with some rest and good posture! at the beginning of last week I was feeling a cold coming on, but I fought it off with vitamins, chamomile tea and sleeping with the humidifier every night! I’ve still got a bit of a cough, but I feel way better!

sleep: sleeping well, besides getting up for the bathroom 3 times a night!

cravings: would love some coffee still! I actually bought a mini Keurig for our trailer which was on major sale at Kohl’s and I was able to use some coupons and Kohl’s Cash! I’m dreaming of cozy mornings camping with coffee and/or hot chocolate!

aversions: nothing in particular…

what I miss: being able to walk, get out of bed or do anything physical without feeling winded! it’s going to be a long 12 weeks…but I wouldn’t trade it!

best moment this week: setting up little miss’ crib and seeing all the progress for the baby shower! my sister, SIL and I worked for like 8 hours on Saturday and got so much done! we also got our maternity pics back and holiday cards ordered!

looking forward to: so much this week! a short work week, Thanksgiving dinners with family {next weeks weight gain is already not looking so good} and going wedding dress shopping with my SIL {and hopefully getting in some r&r at some point}!
