Pregnancy: Week 28

DATE: September 30, 2010

How far along: 28 weeks

Total Weight Gained: 25 pounds…..yup, not kidding!!

How big is Your developing baby, who this week weighs in at about two and a half pounds and stands — or rather lies — at almost 16 inches (measured head to toe) has added blinking, coughing, and more intense sucking to his or her growing bag of tricks.

Maternity Clothes: Pants….still wearing regular shirts….just big ones and long ones!

Sleep: this week it has taken a dramatic turn for the worst. I am up ALL of the time to go to the bathroom and every little sound wakes me up!!

Best Moment of the Week: Doctor apt. on Wednesday. Heard the heart beat…at a solid 153 BPM. Had the glucose test, no results back yet….but I am sure that we are fine!

Movement: oh yes….always!

Food Craving: Fruit and Yogurt Parfaits from McD’s…..delish!! And soda pop :(….sad.

Food Aversions: not really any

Morning Sickness: nada

Gender: GIRL!!

Symptoms: heartburn. Tums are my new best friend! And my hips are getting sore….too much extra weight maybe?

What I miss: being slim and sleeping through the night!

What I'm looking forward to: Just counting down the days now!

** No pictures this week, b/c I forgot to take them and upload them!! BUT, I assure you that I look similar to last week...just a teensy bit bigger...and with shorter hair :)

I craved soda pop when I was pregnant with my second too! Coke was a daily thing! No wonder I had heartburn all the time ;)

I'm so behind! My hips were HORRIBLE when I was pregnant - it got really bad with my last two. As much as I'd like to have another baby I don't think my body could handle it again. They'd hurt so bad at times that I'd be in tears just sitting down and getting up again.

Can't wait to see that little princess!

I know she's gonna be gorgeous, just like her momma! I haven't tried those yogurt parfaits but they can't be that bad for you, right?!

Wow! 28 weeks already. Time is flying by for us bloggy watching friends.
I'm glad your good minus the up all night constant bathroom breaks.
I hope that gets better.

The only craving I had with Lexie was pop! I *had* to have one mountain dew a day!
I do not miss that not sleeping aspect near the end!
I can't believe you're already 28 weeks!
