Maternity Mondays: 28 Weeks
How Far Along: 28 weeks and 3 days. Hellooo Third Trimester! We are in the home stretch, folks. It's also worth noting that if baby were born now (God forbid as he would have no clothes, diapers, or a properly designed nursery), his chances of survival would be excellent - pretty amazing!
Size of Baby: An Eggplant.
Total Weight Gain / Loss: At my last doctor's appointment I was down .6 pounds for a total gain of 14.4 pounds thus far. Don't ask me how that happened. I am pretty sure the scale was broken (in my favor for once)!
What I am wearing: I finally broke down and purchased a few tops from the H&M Mama line. It was high time to bring a few new items into the maternity wardrobe. Below I am wearing my black velvet-y demi panel pants from Gap and an H&M maternity top in M.
Movement: Lots! We have come a long way since I couldn't feel a thing from this little guy.
Sleep: Great since receiving my cortisone shot and since Logan has decided to return to waking up at 7 rather than 6 - wahoo! I have also been feeling tired again in the afternoons (much like the first trimester) and am trying to nap if possible.
What I miss: Feeling good - not missing much.
Cravings: Nothing notable.
Symptoms: Heartburn. I think it's time for something industrial strength as Tums are just laughing in my face these days.
Best moments this week: Hosting our annual girls' holiday party this past weekend.
*Bonus* LMK Happenings:
We toured our first pre-school this morning!! It's hard to believe but applications are due in February for the Fall school year! Lo is totally ready, however, and I think that we could have left her there today, ha. She was loving all of the classroom activities, paints, story corners, etc. I think the plan will be to put her in 2-3 half days per week which seems just about perfect to me. I am looking forward to the learning opportunity for Logan as well as some solo time with baby #2. We have two more to look at before making a decision, but all are less than a mile from our house which is such a bonus!
28 Week Photos: (We have some new background scenery this week. Chris' bikes were driving me up the wall in every photo so I moved the mirror to a new door.)
