28 Weeks!

How big is the baby this week: Baby is the size of a rutabaga.

Due Date:
May 8, 2012

Weight Gain: Up 1 lb this week. Total: 13lbs!

Symptoms: Growing belly, occasional heartburn, and increased nose blowing.

Cravings: Milk, hamburgers, and guacamole. Also, had a REALLY intense craving for Red Lobster this past week- hubby and friends obliged:)

Aversions: Nadda.

Sleep: Seems to be a little better these days- I think I've finally broken in my Snoogle and now I seriously can't imagine sleeping comfortably without it. Funny story- we usually set our alarm for around 15-20 minutes before we actually have to get up, and enjoy hitting the snooze button a couple of times, but I think the alarm wakes up Emersyn, and she does NOT go back to sleep- she starts kicking. So, while hubby catches another few minutes of sleep, I lay there with E kicking away. Not too bad of a way to start the day:)

I am loving: My Snoogle, and food. Nom nom nom.

I miss: Being able to put my socks and shoes on without feeling like I'm about to suffocate, sleeping on my belly and back.

I am looking forward to: Working on the nursery this weekend, and my first baby shower on Feb 25th!

I'm spazzing about: My glucose test this week- I don't think I'll have any major issues passing (fingers crossed), but I've heard the drink is super sugary, and too much sweet stuff makes me nauseous.

Best thing about this week: The foot rub from hubby last night- I worked until 8:45 and my ankles were starting to swell.

Milestones: I'm officially in my third trimester!! Also, pretty sure Emersyn had hiccups Sunday night:)

Movement: She moves the most in the evenings, and around 20 minutes after I eat.

It's a...: Girl!!!


  1. Hooray for the third trimester...that means she's even closer to being here!

  2. I have my shower on the 25th too! I also totally relate about mornings.. If I wake up early and lay there Saylor starts kicking too like she is ready to get started with the day.
