28 Weeks Pregnant

How far along: 27 weeks + 5 days (you are the size of an eggplant) – Wednesday marks the start of the third trimester already- how is time flying by so fast?!?!

Total weight gain: +23.4 lbs (but feeling great!)

Maternity clothes: Yep! And I love them- they are super comfortable and make getting through my work days a bit easier.

Mood: Excited.  I finished our registry and I’m feeling much more prepared now that I have a list of items we will need.

Sleep: 8 hours a night- I’ve been sleeping great which makes things so much easier.

Best moment of this week: We started our birthing classes.  It’s fun to hear about all the exciting moments we have coming up in our life.

Miss anything: Nope- I’ve just been enjoying every day.

Movement: All the time.  The doctor said I should start kick counts and feel 8 movements in an hour.  When I sit down to do it, I feel Evi 10-15 times in the first 10 minutes!  It’s insane- he loves to move around.  I’ve gotten to the point where you can see him moving- it’s so fun 🙂

Food cravings: Nothing in particular.  I’ve been trying my best to make healthy choices every chance I get.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, not at all!

Have you started to show yet: For sure!  Here are some pics:

Gender: a BOY!!!

Labor signs: nope.

Belly button in or out: in.

Wedding rings on or off: on.

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy!  I’ve been feeling great!

Looking forward to: Setting up the nursery.  I have so many fun ideas and I can’t wait to make a space that just for Everett.

Other news/stories:  Life has been crazy.  With Aaron’s school, birthing classes, doctor’s appointments, vet appointments and hang outs with friends we have been on the move everyday.  I’m so proud of the way Aaron and I work in a team to keep our life in order and stay on track.  Our schedule slows down once February hits so I’m looking forward to relaxing a bit more- but things have been really busy and fun lately.  I’ve been feeling so lucky and grateful for the people in my life- makes all the busy days worth it 😉
