28 weeks!!

How far along: 28 weeks

Size of baby: This is according to babycenter - By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She's also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.
 Weight gain/loss: 18 lbs

Maternity Clothes: Mostly all maternity clothes besides some shirts/dresses.

Gender: Girl!

Movement: Yes! This little chicky is a crazy one...I dont know when she sleeps! She especially moves after I eat.

Sleep: I have been getting up about 3-4 times a night to go to the bathroom and then getting back to sleep isnt the easiest because of my shots - but less than 9 weeks to go for the shots! Yeah!

Symptoms: Braxton hicks & regular contractions and some back pain

Cravings: Cold water. I have always usually preferred room temperature water but lately I prefer super cold water. The sweet tooth craving has continued to increase, which I didnt think was possible! I could seriously eat sweets for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I need to get this under control!

Best Moment this week:  Third trimester!!!  So thrilled to make it to this point.  My doctors are encouraged because 28 weeks is a great milestone in the pre-term labor history department...did that make sense?  It was sort of a made up sentence but hopefully you know what I mean  :) 

What i'm looking forward too:  The weekend!  Josh was out of town at training most of this week so I am glad he is home!!  I am looking forward to the weekend with him! 

I know I promised pictures......I had to lend my camera to my mom last weekend and have yet to get it back!  I should have a post filled with pictures sometime this weekend...finally!!  Have a great weekend - I am loving this fall weather!!!


  1. Yeah, Angie!

    Getting to the 3rd trimester is a big one! I'm so glad things continue to go well for you. Thinking of you lots. Let's get together soon.

  2. Every pregnant girl I know right now craves really cold things. So weird but I guess I will have to wait until I'm pregnant someday to understand! =)


Thanks so much for your sweet comments!
