28 Week Bumpdate (Large Eggplant)
how far along: 28 Weeks
size of baby: Large Eggplant 15 in., 2.25 lb
total weight gain: 16 lbs
favorite clothes: Leggings and loose tops is all I’ve been wearing all week.
symptoms: Bathroom breaks are becoming pretty frequent. Also noticing that I am having to take a small rest between my daily cleaning chores and if I pick Tom up and walk around with him I am so out of breath afterward. Other than night pain I haven’t had any pain this week related to pregnancy.
sleep: Much better than last week for sure. Tom was sick for a few days and up a lot, but I still didn’t feel too bad throughout the day and felt well rested. Hip pain from side sleep is really irritating, but it happens every pregnancy so at least I was expecting it.
must-haves: Water of course, all day I am thirsty! Heartburn medicine is definitely needed now. See all my third trimester must-haves here!
cravings: Milkshakes, ice cream, and nachos. I had a blizzard and a frosty this week. Still all I can think about haha!
baby movement: It is actually becoming painful when he moves his entire body around. He has been pretty active this week, probably thanks to the ice cream 😉!
gender: Boy, Alexander James!
husband: I really am so glad he has been understanding. Tom has been fussy, between Zach working constantly because of OT scheduling and being out-of-town for a few days I am exhausted and snippy. Not always, but my frustration seems to come on quicker than usual when Zach is working for longer periods of time than usual. I know this will pass, but my husband has been so understanding of my mood swings and snappiness, I guess it helps that I totally recognize when I’ve been rude and apologize immediately.
best moment this week: my husband coming home from OH and being on days means the kids and I actually get to see him everyday for the next two weeks. I miss him sometimes even though we live in the same house lol, I know I’m ridiculous.
From newborn through the first year. Schedules with each transitional phase in mind.
