Week 28

Spread the love

How far along? 28 weeks 6 days… Did you know 28 weeks starts the 3rd trimester? I didn’t! Learn something new every day!!

Total weight gain/loss: Oddly enough I’ve been ignoring our scales. They upset me 🙂

How big is baby? Your baby is the size of an eggplant. Hmmmm so I have an eggplant in there… lol. Sorry just popped into my head and had to share :). Baby is putting on layers of fat, your baby now weighs in around 1.5 to 2.5 lbs and measures 13.6 to 14.8 inches long.

  • Baby’s starting to develop more fat, so her wrinkly skin will start to get smoother
  • Her lungs are mature enough that she’d probably survive if she was born now. WOW!

Maternity Clothes? Wonder why I still have this as a question….

Stretch Marks? Oh these are sad! I’m predominately seeing them where she kicks me the most… my lower ab.

Best moment this week? I still keep getting sweet little kicks. I think she must be running out of room in there, ya think?

Movement? Yup! The bump.com says I should be counting the kicks. Um…. why?

Food Cravings/Aversions? Oh…. nothing new but lemon brownies have sounded good for a couple weeks. Not a craving I don’t think, they just sound really good. I’ve been to lazy to make them though. 

What I miss: Not waking up all achy. 

What I’m looking forward to: being able to suck my belly back in and look skinny 🙂

Nausea/Vomiting? I have had a couple moments this last week I’ve been iffy but I seriously think it’s my nasal drainage causing this problem.

Labor signs? Well I don’t think so. I’ve not really had these pains before so I really don’t have any comparison.

Gender? We have had them verify it’s a girl 3 different times. Think it’s a girl?!?!

Belly Button in or out? This is a sore subject, literally. Very upsetting. My belly button hurts, I think when she lays against it it really sticks out and other days it’s just flat. It’s really dry and hurts to touch it too. I hate belly buttons.

Wedding rings on or off? Sad subject here but I really think that when we do our maternity photos, if I can get my rings on, I want them on in the pictures. I just don’t want to have to cut them off. I’d really cry then!

Sleep? Um…. yeah so far. I wake up exhausted in the mornings but other wise I wake up to roll over at night because rolling over is difficult.

Weekly Wisdom: Don’t sit to long. That’s where I’ve been having my difficult moments because my feet swell. Otherwise sitting is good, but it’s good to get up and move around some. Also I wore flip flops earlier this weekend just cause I didn’t want to wear shoes and that made my ankles/feet swell really bad. Must not have been enough support? Really they say that flip flops are bad for your feet anyway because there is no support so….

Due Date: Thursday June 26, 2014 was what we originally thought. Then I was told June 30, then July 4th, then June 26, then June 27 and after the 3-D ultra sound June 28. I guess she’ll come when she’s ready, right?
