::Baby G:: Week 28 is Great!

How far along? 28 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 22 lbs

Maternity clothes? Yes, actually purchased a few dresses for the showers from They have some great, stylish dress options for us pregos.

Stretch marks? No new ones thankfully!

Symptoms: Same as usual--back pain and heartburn but on the flip side, my nails are growing like crazy and I'm not losing hair anymore. Typically when I shower or brush my hair, I lose a ton of hair and now there is none. Weird.

Sleep: I've been so thankful for the Snoogle lately---it really helps me to be comfy!

Best moment this week: We had a Minnie Mouse birthday party for my niece on Saturday, she turned two! 

Later that day, we had a great time at my co-worker's house. She and her husband hosted an Oktoberfest complete with German food and home-brewed beer. There were five pregos there so luckily someone thought to bring prego "beer" for all of us :-)
(the pregos)

Have you told family and friends: Yep

Miss Anything? This week I was missing sushi again, I just love that for a quick, clean tasting meal.

Movement: The last few days have been almost constant. She is moving all of the time and I can even feel her turning or something that feels like turning. I'm starting to feel her in two places at once which means she is getting so big!

Food cravings: Nothing specific

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope (yay!)

Have you started to show yet: Oh yes!

Gender: Girl, Henley Nicole!

Labor Signs: Nope, no braxton hicks yet either but I hear they may start showing their face any day now.

Belly Button in or out? The top is starting to pop out and it shows through most shirts. 

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!

Exercise: None but I need to do more stretching because the back pain is getting worse.

Looking forward to: My first baby shower is this weekend! I'm so excited!!! My best friend from Ft Lauderdale is coming over and I can't wait to celebrate this baby girl with all of my good friends.

  1. When you think you're feeling her in two places at once might actually be braxton hicks. I was at the Dr. for a check up with Peyton, she asked me if I was having any. I'm like, "Nope!" She goes to measure me and says, "You're having one right now." So, I said, "Oh, well in that case, I get those all the time. I thought that was him kicking me and he was out of room." LOL

    1. That's what I was thinking too! Hmm, I wonder :-)

  2. Watch your stomach next time you feel it. You'll actually be able to see it get tighter when it contracts if it's Braxton Hicks.

  3. I usually lose a ton of hair too and thought it was such a nice change while pregnant that I didn't shed so much. I had my hair cut when my daughter was about 6 weeks old and the hair stylist bent down and whispered to ask if I had a disorder or was going through chemo because I was losing so much hair as she washed my hair! I didn't realize that once you actually have the baby your hair starts shedding what it didn't while you were pregnant.

    1. I've heard the same thing----it's crazy! For now I'm enjoying not losing so much :-)
