How far along? 28 weeks and 8 days — Welcome to the third trimester! Here goes nothing. 😉
Baby is the size of an … Eggplant! Baby is somewhere between 13.6 inches to 14.8 inches and around 2 to 2.5 pounds.
How has (s)he changed this week? Baby’s lungs are mature enough that he or she could probably breathe on her own if born prematurely. Plus, its eyes, which can open and close now, can sense changes to light as well.
So far, I’ve gained … 27 pounds total. I actually lost half a pound this week.
Sleep has been … Okay. Been getting about 7 hours a night with lots of bathroom breaks in between. It’s starting to get hard to get comfortable.
I feel … Sweaty. Another heat wave has begun in Boston!
I miss … Nothing at the moment
Craving … Chocolate =)
Keep me away from … Nothing at the moment
Symptoms? Back pain, frequent bathroom breaks, mild hearburn
Gender? Boy! Or girl. Who knows!
Maternity clothes? Most clothes at this point except for a few pre-prego tops
Movement? It’s pretty constant at this point. =)
Exercise? Nightly stretching and some walking
Healthy eats? Pineapple, watermelon, bananas, coconut water, and salad
Splurges? Fourth of July feast: Steak, potato and macaroni salad, and chicken wings!
Wedding rings on or off? I’m single wedding banding during the heat wave.
My best moment was … Just getting to spend time with Rich while he’s home this week!
Looking forward to … A bit over a week in Orlando, FL! I’m going for a work conference and Rich will be visiting some offices while we’re there, so we’re extending the trip for our last babymoon before the little one comes. =)
