Bumpdate: 28 Weeks


Due Date: August 5, 2015

How far along?: 28 weeks, 5 days

Gender: It's a BOY!

Total weight gain:  I'll know after tomorrow's OB appointment...hoping the weight gain this past month has been manageable.

Stretch marks?: I've spied slight hints of stretch marks on my sides, but I haven't seen any on my belly yet. I'm still using a mixture of Bio-Oil and St. Ives lotion every night.

Symptoms: No new symptoms that I can think of...once again, I just want to make it known how incredibly thankful I am that this pregnancy has been so easy/enjoyable thus far. It's definitely not something I take for granted because I know several girls who've been sick the entire time or just had challenging pregnancies in general. 

Maternity clothes?:  All day, every day. Current goal is to find cute outfits for my upcoming baby showers!  

Sleep:  I've felt more tired recently than I did during the second trimester, but apparently that is to be expected...I've also been travelling + really busy, so I'm sure that has played a role in the semi-exhaustion. I've actually been sleeping pretty well...as long as I'm not hot! It seems like the temperature in our bedroom spikes around the time I'm ready to go to bed, so poor Ryan gets to listen to a good 10 minutes of me whining about being hot. {I've nagged so much that we finally have someone coming to check out our AC units this week...because I know I'm not losing my mind...it really is HOT in our house at night!} I think I better start saving my pennies {or Ben Franklins} to cover the electric bill for these last couple of months of pregnancy. Hello, Texas summer! :)

Cravings:  Grilled cheese, please! 

Best Moment of the Week: Although I initially wasn't very excited about it, attending the Jason Aldean/Kenny Chesney concert turned out to be fabulous fun! I owe these girls at least a few dozen nights of being their designated driver, so it felt pretty good to pay back a fraction of my debt! More details to come on the concert in a later post!




Worst Moment of the Week: I learned that this little midget man doesn't really like to fly...as in I puked on the airplane last week en route to Las Vegas for a work conference. Granted, it was a pretty rough flight, but I think being pregnant factored in because I've never in my life had to use one of those little puke bags before...thank goodness it was there! I was absolutely mortified, but the lady sitting next to me was soooooo incredibly kind and understanding! I didn't get sick on the return flight to Dallas, but he was fidgeting around the entire flight just enough to make sure I knew he was unhappy! With all that said, I'm really looking forward to my upcoming flight this Friday...

Workouts: Just leisurely little strolls with Lily. Oh, and trekking up a million ramps to get to our seats for the concert at Cowboys Stadium...don't worry, we found the escalator for the trip down! 

Mood: I'm starting to feel a little overwhelmed with all that we have to do before our little guy arrives, so sometimes I might be just a little anxious/on edge. Nothing too crazy, though...right, Husband?!!?  

Nursery: Progress is being made! We're going to hang a peg board with baskets/shelves above the changing table, so that's our next major project. I think I've decided to go with the dark brown glider/recliner, so we need to get that purchased soon. We've received a few gifts in the mail {so exciting!}, so his room is actually starting to be filled with "baby stuff!"  

Movement: He's getting big enough/strong enough that I can feel him moving around no matter how active/busy I am. Prior to the last week, I had to be sitting/lying pretty still to notice his movements, but not anymore! I still get excited every time I feel him wiggling.

Wedding Rings:  On.

Belly Button: In.

Looking Forward To: Our first baby shower is this coming weekend in Medicine Lodge...can't wait to catch up with friends/family from "home."
