28 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 28 weeks~ yay for the 3rd trimester!

Size of Baby: About 15 inches long and 2-3 pounds. He is growing and I can tell (along with everyone else)! He's still about the size of an eggplant. =)
Total Weight Gained/Lost: Now I'm at 16 lbs total because I went down a pound at my appointment. My guess is that it's because all I could have for breakfast was dry toast and water (for my glucose test). I was starving by the time I left the doctor's office!

Maternity Clothes: A must!

Gender: A little brother for Garrison!

Movement: Baby boy is moving a lot. His favorite times of the day to be active are first thing in the morning, mid to late afternoon, and once I'm finally sitting still and relaxing after Garrison goes to bed.

Food Cravings: Popsicles and ice cream

What I Miss: Being able to do normal things around the house like vacuuming or dusting or taking care of Garrison without it wearing me out or feeling out of breath!

Sleep: I've now gone from sleeping good, to just okay. Terrell had to find my boppy cuddle pillow for me to sleep with this week because I've just been uncomfortable and tossing and turning a lot. The pillow helped with my pregnancy with Garrison and it's helping with this pregnancy too, thank goodness!

Symptons: Feeling tired and sleepy, being hot, and making lots of trips to the bathroom

Best Moment This Week: Garrison placing his little hands on my bare belly and saying, "move around Ausin, move around" and him giving my belly kisses. So sweet. I have tried my hardest to get Garrison to feel Austin move, but so far it hasn't worked out. Hopefully one day soon. I can just imagine the precious look on his face!

What I'm Looking Forward To: The beach, pool, Disney World, family time, and new memories

The big brother who now pretty much requests to have his picture made by the door just like mama
