Oh Boy! 28 Weeks


How far along? 28 weeks, 3 days {AKA: 82 days to go. AKA: What the what!?}

Total weight gain/loss: +18 lbs “Right on track” according to my OB, but I think he was just trying to make me feel better.

Stretch marks? I’m working on a pretty awesome Harry Potter style stretch mark right above my belly button where my belly button ring used to be. 

Maternity Clothes: I’d say 80/20. I have GOT to find a pair of maternity shorts because holy cow it’s getting hot!

Sleep: I tend to wake up a lot through the night, but I think it’s mostly because of Rylee & Reese and not pregnancy related. 

Best moment this month: Good question…to be honest there hasn’t been any stand-out awesome moments

Movement: Yep, definitely an active little guy but I’ve noticed he tends to hang out deeper in the belly than the girls did. A funny thing I’ve noticed too is there’s a rounded body part that hangs out in the upper right portion of my torso just like Reese did.

Gender: Pretty sure it’s still a boy.

Labor Signs: Nope

Food Cravings: Nothing.

Belly Button in or out? Out. 

What I miss: A good night of sleep? Sleeping in later than 5:30 am…then again those are not pregnancy related so much as older-sibling related.

What I am looking forward to: Getting his nursery ready. But in order to get that going, we need to move Reese into Ry’s room. But in order to do that we have to move her desk into the office. But in order to do that we have to rearrange/purge a bunch of stuff. But in order to do that…well I think you get the idea. We’ll get there. Pretty sure.

Baby Milestones: Baby is about the size of an eggplant, 2.25 lbs. according to my app.

Other Goodness: I wouldn’t exactly call this “good”, but we discovered recently we’ll need to buy a new car. Womp. We were hoping that just buying 3 new car seats that we’d be ok, but while the 3 new seats technically fit in the car, Rylee won’t be able to buckle herself in…that’s kinda key, right? So, basically if all 3 kids were still in 5-point harnesses it wouldn’t be an issue, but since we have to actually access the seat buckle, it’s a no-go. We’ve got a car picked out, now we’re just waiting for the financing to be right. 

At my appointment yesterday my doctor ended it with, “So, see you in 2 weeks?” And apparently the holy-shit-2weeks-already panic look that shot across my face made him say, “well, since everything is going so well, we can go another 4 but after that it’ll be 2.” I just…I cannot comprehend how we are already at THAT point in this pregnancy.

82 days…Does.Not.Compute.
