Another week down. And we’ve officially entered the third trimester! The nursery is coming along (slowly) and I still feel pretty good. People ask me on a daily basis how I’m feeling, and I almost feel bad for always saying “good.” This week, I’ve been more sore than usual, but I think that can be attributed to last Thursday’s fall. Other than that, I just feel like a girl who has put on some weight. Only when this weight comes off, we’re going to be parents.
How far along am I: 28 Weeks
Size of baby: McLittle weighs about two and a half pounds. He’s roughly 15 inches long and is being compared to the size of a bag of flour.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I’m up 24 pounds.
Clothes: I did not find great clothes at the outlets last week, but I did find a cute bathing suit (that will hopefully last me through the summer.) I’m loving the capris that I have bought over the past couple of months. So much better than jeans or shorts.
Gender: He’s a boy, unless something’s changed in recent weeks!
Movement: I feel him more and more every week. He’s pretty calm in the afternoons, but his movements have started picking up in the mornings.
Sleep: I’d be great if my husband would sleep in on the weekends. For some reason, he’s been waking up early and starts talking to me. It isn’t fun. I also have to fight for a spot in the bed with him and Chloe taking up the majority of the space.
What I miss: This is definitely my summer drinks. Especially after Memorial Day weekend. Everyone around me is having margaritas, and I’m downing the lemonade.
Cravings: No real cravings this week (again.) About two weeks ago, a friend told me that we needed to pair Kenny with “a real pregnant woman.” She meant a pregnant woman who had the weird cravings you always hear about.
Symptoms: I’m sleepy. And heartburn has returned with a vengeance.
Best moment this week: Found out that I passed my glucose test (it was 85 – and I think they make you retake it when you’re in the 130s.) The nurse sounded excited, so that made me excited. Bring on the ice cream!
This photo worries me. I still have 12 weeks. I am going to need a new wardrobe just for the third trimester.
