As of this past Thursday, I am in the third and final trimester! Goodness.. it's going fast! This week, I'm going to answer questions from a little survey.. just to be able to document how things are right now.
How Far Along: These pictures are from 28 weeks exactly. But today, I am 28 weeks and 2 days ;)
Baby Size: A rutabaga! :) ...apx 15 inches and 2-3 lbs.
Total Weight Gain: I think around 18 pounds.
Maternity Clothes? I have a pair of maternity jeans.. which I wear all the time. I also got a couple maternity tops.. but as of now, I mostly wear my normal shirts.
Stretch Marks? Nope!
Sleep: A few nights ago I had a pretty bad night of sleep. He was moving allll over the place :) but really, I can't complain. I definitely don't mind having sleepless nights for this little boy!
Best moment this week: I love laying in bed with Lee and watching our little boy squirm around together. :) Also, sometimes baby does this thing where it feels like he's moving really quickly for a few seconds (kinda weird!!) .. and I always try to rub my belly and tell him it's okay and momma's here. It's so cute, because he always stops whenever I do that.
Miss Anything? Nope! I love being pregnant. I mean, of course there's little things I could complain about... but growing this beautiful boy in my belly totally outweighs any little annoying things!
Movement: So much movement from this little man! I love it so much.
Food Cravings: Mmm... it's weird, before I was pregnant I would always choose salty foods over sweets.. but now, bring on the sweets!!
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing really!
Gender: It's a baby boy! :)
Labor Signs: No
Belly button in or out? I've always had a flatty belly button. But when I'm in certain positions it does pop out a little.. so weird! Also, when he moves around my belly button it feels so sore! It's like a bruised feeling or something. I've read that your belly button gets sensitive.. because the skin is thinner there or something??
Wedding rings on or off? On
Looking forward to: I've been trying to just really enjoy every week of this pregnancy. I know that I will definitely miss feeling his kicks every day. There so special.. my boy and I already have such a special bond :)
But, it is hard not to think ahead to the day that we'll meet our sweet boy!!! :) So exciting.
