How Far Along? 28 weeks, 5 days…79 days to go!
Size of Caroline? She is 14.8 inches long and weighs about 2.25 pounds- this week’s produce is a chinese cabbage.
Maternity Clothes? The dress I wore for Christmas Eve festivities was maternity and I have to admit, I loved it…flowy and simple, yet still fun for the holidays. I think I am finally figuring out the proper way to dress for the bump! And P.S. Old Navy has adorable maternity PJ pants that I sported Christmas morning, too–way comfy!
Weight Gain? 22 pounds…my 28-week doctor’s appointment was today, complete with my glucose test. And for all the other pregnant ladies out there that are soon to take this test, don’t sweat it–it’s not nearly as bad as everyone claims
Stretch Marks? Still rubbing that lotion on morning, noon, and night–I should become an investor in the Palmer’s brand.
Sleep? I officially hate having to sleep on my side each and every night. If I could have one wish granted, it would be for someone to cut out a hole in our bed so I could find a way to sleep on my tummy again.
Food Cravings? Fruits, more with the apple cider, and salty snacks like chips. Sometimes the thought of protein makes me nauseous though I am having to try my best to get it down because I know I need it.
What I Miss? Running on the treadmill at a fast pace–someday soon!
Symptoms? Puffy face syndrome, restless nights where all I can think about is what all needs to be done, crazy hormones, and I have officially started nesting…be gone with all the junk in my house! I can’t stand anything out that is not in its “proper place”.
Best Moment of the Week? Reaching the third trimester and my thoughtful family thinking of Caroline and showering her with gifts for Christmas…she got a baby handprint ornament kit for next year, Classical Baby dvds to soothe her to sleep and teach her fun art and dance once she makes her debut, a Precious Moments bible, and some adorable embroidered burp cloths!
