28 Weeks

Found these questions in a post by Laura this week on Cameron Crazy blog and thought they would be a good way to document how my pregnancy is going at this point.

How far along? 28 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: One pound gain. I weigh myself at home each Wednesday morning and lost weight the entire first trimester. It wasn't something I was trying to do. I suppose it was caused by my loss of appetite. The OB assured me in January that it was nothing to worry about. As of last week, I was back to my pre-pregnancy weight and this Wednesday found I'm one pound up.

Maternity clothes? About 90% of the pants & tops I wear are now maternity. I can still use a few regular items such as printed t-shirts for working out (although I've warned Trent that I may soon raid his drawers since mine are starting to get snug on the belly).

Stretch marks? Not that I'm aware of.

Sleep: Fairly well. I have nights were I feel as though I'm up every hour and others where I only wake a couple of times. I'm adapting better to sleeping on my side, but still dislike it. I miss back sleeping.

Best moment this week: Any time the little guy is active - especially when he moves around for Trent. I really believe he knows when his dad's hand is on my belly. Either that or hears me mentally saying, "kick for him," over and over again.

Movement: A lot. He used to follow a schedule (morning, after lunch and bedtime). I still feel him those times of day, but now there are a lot of inbetween "play times" as well. :)

Food cravings: Still enjoying the "3 C's" - cantaloupe, chocolate & Cheetos - although I am not noticing the strong "must have" desire for these that I've had in the past.

Labor Signs: None.

Belly Button in or out? In. But definitely much more shallow and rounder than pre-pregnancy.

What I miss: Sleeping on my back. Being able to tie my shoes from a seated position without feeling as though I can't breathe.

What I am looking forward to: Meeting the little guy. Holding him. Watching Trent with him. :)

Weekly Wisdom: Don't believe every pregnancy horror story you read online.

Milestones: I now have to lean forward a little to see my feet. I think I first noticed this last week, but it is pretty funny how one day you can look straight down and there they are. The next day it's "where'd my feet go?"
