28 Weeks

How far along: 28 weeks. 12 more weeks to go!

Total weight gain: +7 lbs from my pre pregnancy weight. +5 lbs from last months appointment.  So far so good. I would be lying if I said that I don't have anxiety about blowing up during this last trimester. I'm terrified of the weight gain and how big I will get.

Maternity clothes: Yes, pretty much everything is maternity these days except for my summer dresses and a few looser tops that I have.

Stretch marks: I think I have one. It's a small mark near my belly button. AGH. And yes I have been using the lotion/oil although I really don't think it makes a difference necessarily.

Sleep:  Typically I am sleeping pretty well. I get up once (sometimes twice now) during the night and occasionally I can't fall back asleep for 2-3 hours afterwards. Fendi Foo the howling cat, has calmed down.

Best moment of this week:  Once again, she refused to show her face for the ultrasound. She actually had her hand blocking her face, which was cool because I could tell it was a hand! I am HORRIBLE at deciphering ultrasounds. Anyways, they were able to get the lip/chin shot they needed, but we will be back for another ultrasound to hopefully get a profile pic. Oh and I received an invitation for my first baby shower!

Food cravings: None really. I have been drawn to white rice with butter - weird, right?

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope. I wish it wasn't so hot so I could actually walk outside and get some exercise. Between work and play, I have only been working out twice a week ish. And then I feel like I have hardly worked out since I can barely do anything. 

Have you started to show yet:  Absolutely. I feel huge, but I know I'm not "that" big.  Terrified for what these next 3 months hold. :)

Gender: Baby Britney. Although we won't be sharing her name until delivery. Not that we even have a name now.

Labor signs: No.

Belly button in or out: In.

Wedding rings on or off: On.

Happy or moody most of the time: Excited & scared. I cannot wait to meet her! And at the same time it is so scary that 12 weeks is right around the corner. Our crib, dresser and the pack & play are set up. The nursery should be getting painted sometime in the next month.

Looking forward to: My first shower in a couple of weeks!
