Bumpdate: 28 weeks

28 weeks pregnantHow Far Along: 28 weeks, I had to schedule out all the rest of my Ob/Gyn appointments!  Only seven more (or less) until she’s here!  Wow, things are rolling along FAST now!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I did pretty good just holding steady this week.  I’m up from 18.5 last week to 19 lbs this week.

Maternity Clothes: Still needing to find a couple pretty dresses for this nice weather, and a super cute special one for my baby shower.  I think it might be time to buy a few new bras too…

Gender: It’s a precious little girl!

Movement: She is moving all the time!  Just when I start to worry that I haven’t felt much movement for a few minutes, she’s kicking and rolling away.  I’m so glad, I absolutely LOVE feeling and seeing her move.  My doctor gave me a print off talking about fetal kick counts. You’re supposed to lay still twice a day and count at least ten movements or kicks within an hour.  Our little baby doll is a champ, she moves that much within twenty minutes!

Sleep: I’m still sleeping pretty great everynight.  I have to get up at least once to go to the restroom, but that’s not too bad.  Kenny bought me an amazing pregnancy pillow for Christmas, Todays Mom Cozy Comfort Pregnancy Pillow, and I know it has helped with my sleeping all this time.  I’ve also been listening to Lisa’s hypnobabies cd’s at night right before I fall asleep in bed. They are so soothing and relaxing, spa like sounds and a reassuring ladies voice helping you get peaceful and relaxed. I love them!

What I miss: I miss traveling a little bit, especially around this time of year.  Ever since Kenny and I first met we’ve made it an annual tradition to take a Spring Break trip somewhere fun, so when the weather starts to warm up and all the trees and flowers start to bud out I tend to get travel fever.  I’m not in a position to do much traveling at the moment and that’s okay, I wouldn’t trade our sweet baby girl for any fancy trip, and I’m sure we’ll be doing some traveling as a family before too long.

Cravings: I have been craving grilled chicken salad and bacon and eggs here lately.  Luckily those are both pretty healthy things.  Plus I’m getting extra protein this way and that’s always a good thing.

Best Moment this week: Finding out two of my closest friends are also pregnant!!
