28wks: The View From Here

(bumpin' out)

Keeping it simple this week. I am coming down with a nasty chest cold and OMG being sick while pregnant is just cruel. I never got sick with Logan and all I want to do is sleep.

How far along: 28 weeks

How big is baby: On average, most babies are just over 2 pounds and almost 15" in length. I carry peanuts, though, and we have a growth scan on Monday to see where we are sitting.

Weight gain/loss: 27 pounds

Stretch marks: Just a few from last time on my upper legs/hips.

Sleep: Not great. I keep getting nose bleeds and am up at least once to pee. And I wake up early for work so yeah, not enough sleep going on even when I am in bed at 9pm.

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Well, I WANT to eat burgers and such, but baby does not like it. I tried to have a sloppy joe yesterday and it did not sit well. I'm still craving lobster.

Movement: Lots of strong rolls and movement.

What I'm loving: That I am in the home stretch. 

Symptoms: Heartburn, contractions, achy back, hips and legs, round ligament pains. So fun.

What I'm looking forward to: The ultrasound on Monday, but not the RH shot. Ugh

Best moment of the week: It's kind of a secret. So yeah...

How I'm feeling: Like crap! Happy crap, anyway. I am fighting a chest cold and I am in a lot of third tri uncomfortableness that is just not easy. Lifting Logan has become hard and even walking up stairs makes me winded. 


  1. You look GREAT! Congrats on the third trimester, I always felt like I was "really pregnant" then, haha!
