I can't imagine how huge I'm going to look and feel considering I have 12 more weeks to grow. The dog food is right through this door, that's why they're looking at me like this, they think it's breakfast time. I'm loving my new maternity clothes because they're super comfy.
How far along: 28 weeks and 1 day (yes, every day counts!)
Total weight gain: Ugh, up 26lbs this morning. How did I gain 3 lbs in the last week????
Maternity clothes: The pants I bought a couple months ago to last the rest of the pregnancy no longer fit. Well they fit, but they dig into my belly so uncomfortably that I can't stand to wear them anymore. Yesterday I hit up Motherhood Maternity for a few new pairs of pants, some tees and tanks, and a nice dress for my shower this weekend. Hopefully I'm done buying maternity clothes. I need to plan the next pregnancy for the same season due date so I can reuse all these clothes.
Stretch marks: They each found a friend, now there's 2 per boob...but the tummy is still stretch-mark free so far.
Sleep: I had a really rough couple nights with excruciating hip pain that felt like my hip socket was dislocated. Some extra stretching before bed and a new body pillow seem to have fixed it thankfully.
Best moment this week: When Rich puts his head on my belly to talk to her and she starts moving and kicking him.
Movement: gentle movements very frequently, though she's still not much of a hard kicker/puncher. I love feeling her and knowing she's doing well in there.
Food cravings: nothing really this week, let's hope it's cottage cheese and broccoli soon so I don't continue to gain 3lbs per week.
Labor Signs: nope
Belly Button in or out: In but getting shallower
What I miss: sleeping on my back
What I am looking forward to: the weekend!!
Weekly Wisdom: What Rich said to me the other night, guys...never say this to a pregnant woman:
Rich: Babe I can tell you're pregnant from the back now.
Me: dirty look, Ummm...
Rich: I just mean your pants are fitting tighter.
Me: dirtier look, So my ass is getting big?
Rich: That's not what I said.
Me: Well, that's what's in my pants that are getting tighter.
Rich: I mean, it's cute that you look pregnant.
Me: I'm getting some ice cream.
Milestones: She now weighs between 2-3 lbs and is about 15 inches long. 12 weeks to go!
