28 weeks

How Far along: 28 weeks. Hello 3rd Trimester!!!

Size of Baby: A Chinese Cabbage (according to baby center) weird.

Total Weight Gain: 12 lbs. so far...

Gender: ??? I kinda think it's a boy and Paul kinda thinks it's a girl haha.

Movement: Tons of movement! Sometimes it's so strong it shakes my whole body.

Sleep: Sleep is ok. Not bad, not great. I'm having really vivid, strange dreams. I had my first dream about the baby this week and it was a stressful one! I dreamt the baby was born and it was a boy, but he was Asian and he was 2 years old. Strange! Also, he was so heavy I couldn't even hold him and I kept leaving him in his carrier and forgetting about him for hours!!! I woke up in a sweat haha.

Maternity Clothes: All pants are maternity, and I'm in mostly all maternity tops too. I basically wear the same five things over and over, but I don't want to keep spending money on maternity clothes. Boo. 

Symptoms: BAD SI joint pain! My class had a field trip to the pumpkin patch on Thursday and I think I lifted too many pumpkins because my back was killing me when I woke up on Friday. By the end of the day I could not even stand up straight. Yucky.

Aversions: No aversions. 

Cravings: Honey Baked Ham! I haven't had any, but it sounds so good!

What I Miss: This week, I'm changing this to What I Don't Miss: Our friends Bert & Lyndsay came down for the game on Saturday and Paul enjoyed a little too much Whiskey. He was feeling a bit hungover yesterday and that is something I do not miss one bit!

Best Moment of the Week: I had my 28 week appointment and glucose test this week. I passed my glucose test (yay!) and got to hear baby Creighton's heartbeat. My doctor said I'm  measuring right on track and everything is looking great! That is always just the best news :)
