Pregnancy | Week 28

Size of Baby: Baby M is the size of a coconut. She is 16 inches long and weighs 2.5 pounds.  We have made it to the third trimester! Can't believe that we will be meeting her in just 12 weeks. 

Gender: Sweet, sweet baby girl! 

Weight Gain: Total gain of 20 pounds so far. 

Maternity Clothes: I am currently repeating the same 2 pairs of dress pants and 4 dresses for work. I have a bit more flexibility on weekends thanks to jeans and leggings. Thanks to donations and friends lending me items, I have spent very little on my maternity wardrobe. Hoping I can make most of these pieces last until February! 

Nursery: Purchased paint and scheduled the painter for this week. Looking forward to start work on decor.

Movement: All the time! I will never get used to her sudden jabs during the day. I love it and am weirded out at the same time. 

Symptoms: Heartburn and digestion issues are becoming a daily struggle. I have started feeling quite lethargic and achey after my long walks around the neighborhood. Hot flashes are no joke and I am considering a portable fan for work. (Put that under things I never thought I would say.)

Sleep: Regularly getting around 8-9 hours of sleep a night with one bathroom break. 

Cravings: Still loving carbs in almost any form. Bagels, pancakes, oatmeal, potatoes you name it. 

What I Miss: Sleeping on my stomach or being able to lay on my stomach in any way whatsoever. 

Exercise: Three Pure Barre classes and one long walk. 

Best Moments: Every second of knowing I am going to be this little one's mother.
