28 Week Pregnancy Update

28 Weeks Pregnant

We are officially (by everyone’s count) in the third trimester!! One of my apps says it was last week, but the overall consensus is that 28 weeks pregnant is the magic number. I’m starting to get more organised, buying the few things that I don’t have anymore and just overall trying to get totally ready. I don’t think there’s too much that I really NEED at this point aside from a car seat, but I want to hold off a little bit because last time I went into labour the evening that I bought it.

How far along? 28 weeks 1 day

How big is Baby? 38 cm / 1 kg

Total weight gain/loss? 25 lbs. I’m not terribly out of line here, I’m definitely just on the high end of normal. I just don’t love being on the high end of anything involving weight gain.

Maternity clothes? I don’t think I need to repeat myself anymore. While I don’t always look big, I’m pretty big. I’ve packed a lot of clothes away so that I don’t even have to look at them until they’re closer to fitting me again.

Stretch marks? So far so good. I’ve been loving this coffee body scrub that I picked up from ( sometime last year. My skin has been extra soft and the oils penetrate really well. Plus, this stuff smells so, so good.

Sleep? I’ve been getting up extra early for the past two weeks, and it’s definitely started to take its toll on me. I sleep just fine, but I’m no good without at least 8 hours.

Best moment this week? My other little boy has taken a lot more interest in his baby brother now and likes to talk and sing to him. It’s pretty cute. I’ve never seen someone so excited to be kicked in the face!

Miss Anything? Not being tired, especially when I get more than 7 hours of sleep.

Movement? All the time. It’s become visible from the outside now, too.

Food cravings? Not really, I’ve been eating a lot more fresh fruit, though. Mostly apples.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.

Have you started to show yet? 99% of the time, yes.

Gender? It’s a boy!

Labor Signs? Nothing yet, but I won’t buy the car seat for several more weeks, though.

Belly Button in or out? In, but flattening out.

Rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time? Tired, which makes me a bit grumpy. But things are settling down and I think we’re coming back to a happy Kriss.

Looking forward to? Sleeping in. I know it’s Monday, but can it be the weekend again, yet?
