Well hello there, third trimester!
How Far Along? 28 weeks today!!! I made it through the first 2 trimesters and couldn’t be happier to be in the home stretch!!
Baby is the size of: an eggplant (according to the bump)
Total Weight Gain: 22 pounds. I haven’t gained any weight over the last couple of weeks.
The Bump: Round and low!
Food Cravings: I haven’t been craving anything lately until last night. All of a sudden I am in the mood for Thanksgiving dinner. I’m heading out to look for a turkey breast to throw in the oven (even though it’s going to be close to 90 degrees for the next 3 days). Some roasted brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy. Stay tuned to next week’s weight gain. 🙂
Symptoms: heart burn hasn’t been as bad this week. I’ve actually gained a little bit of my energy back too. I’ve been feeling a little bit more uncomfortable this week. He’s getting bigger and so is my belly!
Sleep: I can’t get comfortable unless I use all 5 of my pillows. Jon was forced out to the couch the other night. ha!
What I miss: I’m not really missing anything right now.
Movement: Still moving all over the place. I can feel little feet sticking out and a little bum on the right side.
Maternity Clothes: Yes! and a regular bikini for the pool when it’s just the 6(7) of us.
Labor Signs: No way!
Best moment of the week: watching the framers drive away yesterday. ha! I want my house back in order.
What I’m excited about and looking forward to: Getting to sleep in next week knowing there won’t be anyone working on the house.
Purchases: YES!! I had so much fun at the Target baby sale!! I’ve been trying to stock up on diapers and some of the other essentials he needs.
This should last me about two weeks. I’m going with mostly organic diapers this time. One of my babies (who shall remain nameless) used to get the worse diaper rashes. I recommended Babyganics to Kirsten who loves them with Gioia so I’ve been trying to get as much as these as I can. I also loved the Seventh Generation with Lucy so I bought a few of those, along with Honest. I bought a couple of Pampers sensitive at the Target sale too. I figured I’d give them another shot.
Just a few more essentials for him. I’m telling you, I haven’t had this much fun shopping at Target in a LONG time!! You should see me at Babies R Us and Buy Buy Baby!! I promised Jon I would cool it for a few months since we’re running out of room.
Baby’s room: I’m going with a woodland theme. Bought the bedding from Pottery Barn Baby. I can’t wait to start his room!! Mostly everything is shoved into the corner of my bathroom (except the car seat and crib)
His stroller is all set up and our diaper bag is waiting to be filled.
Only 12 more weeks until I’m due!!!
