28 Week Pregnancy Update

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!

When a friend of mine was pregnant, her husband (who's french) said to her, "You don't even look pregnant - just like any other chubby American." I think he meant it as a compliment...

i really love these q+a check in posts! i think it's a great idea to track everything you have listed that you fill in. 12 weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you look so great :)

Oh I know that feeling. How could I possibly get any bigger? But you do. For my 2nd daughter I had to have help buckling shoes at about 7mo.

I think you look all belly. As in you don't look like you put on weight anywhere but the belly.


Marlene said...

You look wonderful! Thanks for the update.

Jen Feeny said...

I love your pregnancy updates! You are too cute and I can't wait to meet her!!! :)

Alisa said...

LOL! I really love this picture and the outfit, I'd wear it if the weather was nice enough.

I know a lot of people that plan their pregnancies at the same time for that exact reason---to reuse clothes =).

Brandi said...

You look absolutely adorable! Men never know how to say things and it always comes out wrong. I wouldn't think anything more about it!

Jess said...

You look great!

And now you're in the final trimester: It's like hitting mile 20 of a marathon! Actually not. I think week 36 is more like that, but somewhere in there is the appropriate analogy.

You look beyond beautiful!

And men just don't realize what's coming out of their mouths sometimes ;)

RobinLK said...

Ha Ha! Guys just have this uncanny way of getting the whole "you look so beautiful" thing a little mixed up, don't they? I could hear the love in his comment, for what it's worth. :-) You look beautiful and she's doing well... wonderful news!

Kim said...

Oh, Rich - think before you talk! LOL. My husband would probably say the same thing.

I love that Lucy is reacting to you talking to her.

And I think it is hilarious that all of the dogs are looking at you in the pic!

You look great!

When I was pregnant, it was a contest between my belly, my boobs, and my a$$ to see which could get the biggest. For a long time, I thought my a$$ was going to win...

Good think you know a good Physical Therapist! Can't wait to see ya'll this weekend

Lindsay said...

Carolina John said...

tell rich he can wear the maternity pants after you're done with them. just call them "buffet pants" and he can take you out to eat. i still wear them to thanksgiving dinner.
