28 Weeks

28 Weeks this week!
Baby girl is the size of a large eggplant. 
This week I went for my glucose test...it actually wasn't bad at all! I liked the flavor surprisingly. Now just praying for good results. 











How far along? 28 Weeks





Total weight gain: +18 lbs...that number is a little shocking to me, but I'm finally at a healthy weight which is good. 



Maternity clothes? I prefer maternity shirts over regular. They just flatter my bump better. Occasionally I'll wear my pair of maternity jeans. But I still will wear regular bottoms. 



Stretch marks? Not yet! Fingers crossed they stay away. 



Sleep: Awful. Terrible. I'd love to have just one decent night sleep. 



Best moment of this week: Hearing our little girl's heartbeat is always the best moment! Also I have been informed of when my baby shower is...I can't wait! This little girl is already so loved, and I can't wait to see how my shower turns out. Everything else besides the date, location, and time is a secret. 



Miss anything? Being able to just do normal activities...like a normal person. I teach dance to little ones and it's getting harder and harder to do certain things. 



Movement: Indeed! I even feel her little hiccups now. So adorable. She gets them a lot...hopefully she doesn't when she's born. 



Food cravings: Not really anything in particular. 



Anything making you queasy or sick: All meat still bothers me. And pretty much everything I eat gives me heartburn. 



Gender: A sweet baby girl! 



Labor signs: I have started to get some cramping, and braxton hicks. I don't think they're really signs. But they get my body ready for the real thing. 



Symptoms: Horrible heartburn. I've been starting to get an achy back and my legs are sore by the end of the day. Oh, and exhaustion. Totally have that. 



Belly button in or out? Uhh..it's like flat. Not completely but I have a feeling it's either going to be flat or pop out. We'll see! 



Wedding rings on or off? On and off. If it's a humid day, there's no way. I think I'm going to get a fake set of rings just so I constantly have something on my finger. I hate not wearing my rings. Especially since I love mine so much. 



Happy or moody most of the time: In between. I have days where I'm in a great mood. Than other days I'm not. 



Looking forward to: My birthday! It's coming up soon.
