Woo hoo! Welcome 3rd trimester! I can't believe it is 8 weeks until I am full term and 12 until she is here!
I simply can not wait to meet her!
How far along? 28 weeks
Baby Bump? Yup!
Maternity clothes? Yes. Still in regular shirts, but there is no chance of any of my regular pants fitting :)
Total weight gain: At last weeks doctors appointment, I had gained 3 pounds. I am thinking between 4 and 5 now, but who knows... we need to invest in a scale battery.
Cravings: Nothing really, but I have been eating a lot of peanut butter lately. If you see a large jar of Jif walking down the street, recognize that it is me, and stop and say hello.
Symptoms: My fingers are pretty swollen so I have retired to a more simple, much larger "wedding band" for the time being. TMI, but my bathroom frequency is increasing as well, though I am still making it through the night... or through most of the night.
Sleep: Sleep has been pretty good. Even though I have slept with two pillows for years, I am finally learning how to use both of them for my comfort :)
Movement: She moves, just not as frequently as I would like. My favorite was when I was sitting at Bible study on Tuesday and she kick/punched my ribs and my bladder at the exact same time. I would love to know her exact measurements right now because that takes some talent and some length!
Gender: We are having a little girl! Emily Ann!
Belly Button in or out? In.
What I miss: I have recently had to limit my sweet intake :( so right now, Coke and sweet tea, though I must admit, Publix brand Splenda tea is pretty good.
Best moment this week: It was probably at my doctors appt last week when she kicked me while we were listening to her heart beat. It was kind of loud and kind of funny. She likes to state her opinion.
Happy Friday my friends!
