28 weeks


Is it just me, or does anyone else think their belly goes from really big one day to looking "smaller" the next? Look at last week's bumpdate. I swear it's bigger!

How far along are you?
28 weeks! (11.5 to go....ahh!)

How big is Baby?
He is the size of an eggplant - His lungs are mature enough now that if he were to be born early he would be able to survive - He's still working on plumping up with baby fat - He opens and closes his eyes and has eyelashes now

Weight Gain? 
16 lbs.

 Gender?
a boy!

Maternity Clothes?
Yes and I'm still tired of wearing the same thing over and over.

Stretch Marks?
Not on my belly

 Sleep?
Hasn't been great. I wake up a lot more now like I did about 10 weeks ago. I've also been waking up an hour before my alarm goes off. Why?!

Symptoms?
Low back pain, breathlessness, restless legs, some cramping

Movement?
I feel him moving all day long and I love it. Not only do I feel the kicks and punches, but I'm more able to feel his slow movements/stretches now too. I can always seem to find a foot or booty in there somewhere! At work this week I felt him pushing really hard against my belly and I was pushing back with my hand. He's so strong already! 

Food Cravings/Aversions?
not really anything either way

Labor Signs?
No

Belly Button in or out?
Flat

What I miss?
Same as last week - being able to bend over/get up and down easily

What I am looking forward to?
Picking Will up from the airport this weekend
Our appointment next week and ultrasound

Best moment of the week?
Being able to feel Crew all the time and Will coming home from China

I'm feeling?
Still pretty overwhelmed thinking of all we have to do in the next 11.5 weeks. I just found out that the crib we registered for got discontinued so we have to pick out a new one. That's pretty frustrating! I loved that crib! I'm also still on the hunt for some perfect furniture from Craiglist to refurb for the nursery. I thought I had found the perfect piece yesterday, but it had already been sold. Just my luck!

Check out weeks 12-27 bumpdates here!

Haha! I feel the same way about the belly size! I feel like it always changes! We're getting so close! It's crazy to think that the babies will be here soon!

Last week's does look bigger! Maybe it has something to do with how he's positioned?

Aw! According to the doc I should start feeling movement soon, like next week! I'm excited about that!

Woo hoo for the next ultrasound! I know you will be glad to have your husband home! Hope all is well!

I think part of the belly size depends on where baby is hanging out ;) And the time of day and the food you ate that day.
You are look so darn CUTE! And seriously? These next 12 weeks will fly! I'm so excited for you!

I think this week's belly is bigger! It's just in a different position...and it looks more rounded instead of pointy. Still cute! I can't believe you've only gained 16 pounds! Hope all is well :)

Linked up my "what pregnancy has taught my husband" today!
