28 weeks (& 2 days) Update

How Far Along: 28 weeks & 2 days

Total Weight Gain: 19 lbs

Maternity Clothes?: Some - the weather has been so nice and little cotton dresses how found themselves on the leader board for what I have been wearing lately.

Sleep?: For the most part. I still wake up routinely; literally I wake up the same time each night to use the restroom. Now I wake up sweating...we need to install a fan in our room and we're in the stage to where its cold in the mornings if we turn the air down at night, but its just too hot at night. A lot also has to do with me and my huge mound of pillows.
Best Moment this Month: Easter egg hunt meltdown...

Movement? Yep! Kicks, flips, jabs, punches galore. The only time I will allow my child to beat me up!

Body Changes/Labor signs? Still just getting bigger! I look like I am carrying a basketball under my shirt at times. Contractions come and go. I am a little nervous my water is going to break while on a walk with Hunter....
Belly Button - In/Out: flat
What I Miss: My memory, wine, and cookies...
What I am looking forward to: Bon Jovi next week!!!! .....and BG being here!

Third trimester here we go! Our appointment went well and I checked out well measuring on track, tightly closed cervix and a little girl that is hanging out very low - hence all the pressure I feel constantly! Judy asked us how we were doing - with the approaching 30 week mark being just around the corner. No swelling, no weight issues - everything checked out just great!

I turned my glucose levels in and heard back from Dr. Odom. I will still need to monitor them, even though they have been phenomenal. The further along I get the more that something could spike so this way we will be keeping track!

Our next appointment is on the 20th - time is really going to fly by now!!

My how you have grown!! I wore a belly band thing from babies r us, especially while walking, that kinda lifted the pressure off my bladder especially while walking. don't know if you have tried that! you look great! can't wait to see the room- still praying for you and baby girl!
