28 weeks!

Hello third trimester!! I have been waiting for you!

Total weight gain: 20 lbs! Oh man! It feels like so much and I know I am well on my way to gaining 30-35 lbs by the end of this pregnancy. Let’s just hope it comes off as easy as it went on.
Biggest craving this week: Nothing stands out special this week. Chocolate and dairy I would have to say are my two biggest cravings of the moment.
Baby is now the size of: An eggplant. She’s over 2 1/2 lbs and close to 15 inches long!
How I’m Feeling: Tired. My bed times are starting to get earlier and earlier again as I enter into the third trimester. I’m also feeling extremely happy. With less than 3 months to go I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel! It’s still so surreal, however, that we are actually going to have a baby at the end of all this. I get so used to carrying around my little noodle, feeling her kick and roll inside me all day long, it’s hard to believe that she will soon be kicking and rolling outside in the real world! I’m also feeling a little anxious, like I need to get going on with all things we still need for her. We have done very limited shopping so far (we basically just have the crib and clothes) and I’m starting to realize how soon she will be here and how much more we have to do before the big day!!
How clothes fit: Well it’s like I shoved a basketball under all my shirts; suddenly nothing is fitting right.
Movement: She still moves an incredible amount. Sometimes when I wake up at night to go to the bathroom I feel like I need to tip toe there, moving as little as possible so she doesn’t sense that I’m awake. Because if she does, it’s all over. She pops up with a “Hey mom, you’re awake!!” and immediately begins her morning yoga or whatever it is she does in there. And then I lie there and think about how hungry I am.
Random: My belly button is finally starting to pop all the way!! I’m guessing in 2 more weeks I’ll be a full time “outtie.” We’ll see!
Looking forward to: Labor. As weird or naive as this makes me sound, I am so incredibly excited to experience labor, pain and all!
