28 Weeks

July 26, 2012

Pregnancy Stats:

How Far Along: 28 weeks

Size of baby: 2 1/4 lbs, 14. 8 inches long, size of a Chinese cabbage

Total Weight Gain: 10 pounds so far, as of 2 weeks ago, definately more by now.  I go to the doctor next week, so we shall see!  I hear you are supposed to put on a pound a week from this point out and that the baby doubles in size in a month...yikes!

Gender: It's a GIRL!!!

Movement:  She has been so active this week, its crazy!  As she has gotten bigger I can definately tell that her little arms and legs are all over my belly.  I think she is having a dance party in there!  I wish I could see in side there at times when she is so active.  Feeling her move never gets old.  Definately the best part about being pregnant is feeling this little girl go crazy in there!

Sleep: I sleep ok. Wake up a few times and I still have to get up to go to the bathroom at least once, sometimes three times a night. But I am exhausted!!! Work is wearing me out. I so look forward to the weekends when I can semi-sleep in.

What I miss: A good nights sleep, running & enjoying coffee in the morning, dang coffee aversion. I still can't even stand the smell of it right now.

Cravings: Chocolate and more chocolate.

Symptoms:  Horrible neck pain (thank you work chair), back pain, a touch of sciatica, braxton hicks contractions, and I still get mild pressure feelings when I exercise and the occassional heart burn,you know, the usual "pregnancy pains." but I can't really complain about anything major right now. Praise God for that!

Maternity Clothes: I need some....desperately!!!

Best Moment this week: The baby furniture finally came in and we spent our friday night putting it together Andrew put it together Friday night while I watched.  I cannot wait to put the rest of the nursery together!!! 

My doctor said my blood sugars look "beautiful."  Soooo I only have to check a fasting blood sugar once a week!  Thank goodness!
