28 Weeks

Sunday, October 28, 2012

My baby bump at 28 weeks from the side:

And from the front:

Total Weight Gain: I gained about 2 1/2 lbs this week.  I think I ate too much cake.

Movement:  Cullen is one active little guy. His kicks are super strong and all over the place.

Boy or Girl? Boy!

Food Cravings: Nothing in particular.  I'm just hungry all the time now.

How I'm Feeling: Still good overall.  I have found that my back and hips are hurting more lately.  My afternoon commute is no fun at all...sitting in one spot in bumper to bumper traffic is killer on my hips.  And I am hungry all the time now.  I definitely feel like I am trying to eat for two, or three or four.  I have gotten some looks from Corey this week when I keep going to the fridge and pantry before dinner.  (This new habit probably explains my sudden weight gain.)

And in case you haven't done the math, I only have about 12 weeks left before our little boy gets here.  That is crazy!  Time is flying by.  And we still have a ton to do!

Size of Baby: Head of Cauliflower (16 in, 2.5 lbs) 

Baby's Development:  By now, baby has added blinking to his growing bag of tricks.  Other impressive new talents include coughing, more intense sucking, and perhaps most important, better breathing.

Best Part of this Week: Mom and I went apple picking again this week.  It was fun to get out in the orchard again and pick the few apples left.  And we, of course, got to enjoy some yummy apple cider doughnuts!

What I'm Looking Forward To: My first shower is next Sunday!  I am so excited!
