28 Weeks

HELLO Third Trimester!  Please be as kind to me as the second one was. :)

Size of Baby: According to Baby Center, about the size of a Chinese cabbage...around 14.8 inches long and 2 1/4 pounds...but she's measuring a week ahead on the ultrasounds!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: As of Tuesday, I was up 11 pounds from pre-pregnancy

Maternity Clothes: Oh yeah, full-time...pajama pants and Noah's t-shirts around the house, but maternity besides that.  I'm loving the jeans still!

Gender: It's a GIRL!  Emma Ramey

Belly Button In/Out: Still almost flat, but still in.  And let me tell you (this is a little gross), if you've never seen the very inside of your belly button, it's WEIRD!

Stretch Marks: None still!  But my stomach has gotten a little "veiny" this week...once again, kind of gross, but they're all over!

Movement: Lots of flips, rolls, and kicks, especially in the afternoon and evening.  She has one particular spot towards the top of my stomach that she loves to can almost get sore at some points!  A fun game at our house has become "guess which body part is sticking out of my stomach." :)

Sleep: Needing more lately - I am loving an afternoon nap.  My dreams have been INCREDIBLY weird this week, which isn't letting me sleep very well.

What I miss: For a day or two I was missing the sweets, but I passed my glucose test with flying colors, so that's gone!

What I am looking forward to: Seeing what this sweet girl got for Christmas!

Cravings/Aversions: I prefer sweet over anything.  The meat aversion is the past couple of days, I've picked over the meat on my plate.

Symptoms: Braxton Hicks (maybe once every couple of hours, especially if I haven't had a lot of water that day), sleepy, waddling...I'm loving it! :)

Best Moment This Week: Spending the first part of Christmas with family!
