Officially in the third trimester. The thing I have learned about pregnancy is that it goes so slow, yet it goes so fast! Dealing with all the sickness, I thought it would never end. But now, we are in the third trimester. The holidays are coming, which always come and go so fast, then poof! our little girl will be here.
Here is an update on my pregnancy at 28 weeks.
How Far Along: 28 weeks
Weight Gain Total: 11 lbs
Sleep: Nothing has changed with my sleep. Maybe it is preparing me for getting up multiple times in the night. Acid reflux is not my friend. It wakes me up a few times a night. I also feel some aches in my hips. I have recently been using a pillow in between my legs. That has helped. Not sure if/when I will get a pregnancy pillow.
Gender: Girl! In case you missed our gender reveal, you can check that out here.
Feeling: So much better. I didn’t think I would ever get through morning sickness. I am tired a lot, but I assume that is normal. I am able to function and go out. Just the acid reflux is what is killing me at this time. Trying to eat bland foods and not too late.
Movement: She moves a lot. The movements are getting stronger and more often.
Baby size: Size of an eggplant. The websites say she should be around 14 1/2 inches long! I can’t believe that!
Mood: As far as I’m concerned, I think my mood is just fine. Other’s may have a different opinion? Lol.
Food cravings: I keep waiting for them. Not really any. Not sure why? In fact, not much ever really sounds good to eat. Maybe because I know that whatever I eat will just come back to bite me.
Food aversions: This is a lot better. In fact, I had my first egg in months just a couple days ago, and it was delicious in a sandwich.
This week: Still working away and blogging up a storm. I am just feeling happy that I can go out and not feel sick. Second half of the second trimester was as good as they say it can be. Looking forward to a good third trimester.
Looking forward to: Babymoon! It is definitely time to spend time with just the hubs before our lives are completely changed. Not sure where, but we will be planning something soon and I can’t wait!
