Bumpdate 2.0: 28 Weeks



Due Date: December 1, 2017

How far along?: 28 weeks

Gender: It's a BOY!

Total weight gain:  Too much! Way too much for this point in the game. At yesterday's doctor appointment, the scale indicated I'd gained 27 pounds. Surely I was wearing heavy shoes..or maybe holding my purse???

Stretch marks?: Don't think so! At least none that I've seen...but, then again, I haven't exactly had the time {or desire!} to spend searching for unwanted marks on my skin!

Symptoms: The killer charlie horse cramps in my calves continue to plague my sleep...but they've decreased to just a few times per week rather than every.single.night! No new pregnancy-related symptoms I can think of.

Maternity clothes?:  All day, every day. I'm starting to worry about what I'm going to wear this fall when it cools down. With Huston being born in August, I don't have any maternity clothes for cooler temps!

Sleep:  It's getting harder and harder to find comfortable positions for sleep with this big 'ole belly. I'm definitely using the pregnancy snoogle pillow much more than I did with Huston's pregnancy...in fact, I'm not sure I'd be able to fall asleep without the support of it taking some of the pressure off my back/belly.

Cravings:  Still loving ALL.THE.FRUIT...but I've especially been craving apple wedges with fruit dip {cream cheese and marshmallow cream} or caramel. It's probably a miracle I passed my glucose test at yesterday's OB appointment!

Best Moment of the Week: Of course the very best moment of the week was hearing the strong, healthy heart beat of our baby boy at yesterday's OB appointment.  BUT...we also enjoyed spending the long Labor Day weekend with our fabulous friends, Lindsay and Travis. The drove down to from Kansas to spend the weekend with us, and we had a fabulous time...really doing nothing at all!

Date night for the grown ups!

Sooo grateful for this girl!

Worst Moment of the Week:
H has had a terrible cough...but only at night. We finally decided that it wasn't going away and got him in to see Dr. Diana yesterday. Turns out, our poor little guy has an ear infection...and all the drainage that goes along with that is causing the coughing.  To look at him, you'd never know he's under the weather...



Workouts: Zip.Zero.Zilch...unless you count chasing a VERY ACTIVE toddler around {which is more activity than anything I did during my pregnancy with Huston!}.

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: We've narrowed down a few options for crib bedding! 

Movement: I think this lil' midget man is practicing kick-boxing in there. He's moving ALL.THE.TIME...and his movements are now strong enough that they wake me up if I'm sleeping. It seems like he's responsive when his daddy talks to him each night before we go to sleep. It melts my heart to feel him {and see the surface of my skin move} when Ryan is chatting with him.

Wedding Rings:  On.

Belly Button: In.

Looking Forward To: A low-key weekend at home...and hopefully picking out crib bedding for our baby boy!
