Hello 3rd Trimester!!!!
How far along: 28 weeks
Baby’s size: Baby is the size of a head of cauliflower. 16 inches and weighing in at 2.5 pounds!
Baby developments: Baby is now developing “white fat” which actually serves as an energy source and explains why he’s moving around like a crazy person.
My bump: is slowly growing again. I actually outgrew one of my maternity shirts already. sheesh.
Maternity clothes: My wardrobe is now 1/2 maternity clothes 1/2 husbands T shirts and sweat pants.
Sleep: although I was still able to get a full nights rest most nights this week I wake up frequently and am terribly uncomfortable. Uh oh.
Food cravings: Nothing specific, we’ll see if the cravings come back!
Food aversions: Also nothing specific, hopefully I’m done with the food aversions.
Symptoms I have: I’m calling the chiropractor this week, hopefully I can get an appointment before we leave for vacation on Wednesday!
Movement: Still one of the best feelings ever! The books say around this time I should start to feel more “forceful” kicks. I hope so!
Maternity/baby purchases: Nothing new. Saving up for the big stuff!
What I’m looking forward to: Going to California in 3 days!
What I miss: Being able to sit up and stand up without someone (Kyle) lending me a hand.
Emotions: Still feeling good. I had a little emotional meltdown this week while Kyle was out of town. Luckily my best friend Dawn lives right down the road and is always ready to come over (with a frosty, which helps all problems). She’s the best!
Best moment of the week: Started to paint the nursery! It’s not done yet but so far I love it! I can’t wait to post before and after pictures of the room.
Next doctor’s appointment: Tomorrow morning. Since I’m in my 3rd trimester I have an appointment every 2 weeks instead of 4.
