Pregnancy Update: 28 Weeks

28w 3d

How far along? 28 weeks (I do these a week behind as a recap of the previous week, so I'm actually 29 weeks today.)

Total weight gain/loss: 139.8 lbs! Definitely gaining faster than anticipated... but I've had a few ultrasounds over the last two weeks and baby is growing very well.

Maternity clothes: Yes! But I haven't worn any this week. I've been living out of PJs, shorts and my Lululemon Wunder Unders.

Stretch marks? YES! They appeared on Thursday- and they're right on my breasts underneath my nipples between 4-8! I always thought I'd feel them before they came in, but I guess that's just not the case. Now I'm anticipating the stretch marks on my belly and body ANY time now.

Sleep: Sleep has been fine! I'm wicked surprised. Other women I've spoken with, who are also due in March, complain that they average 2-5 hours per night...

Best moment this week: Our baby shower was this past weekend! It was SO much fun! We also had our 4D ultrasound this past Tuesday, 1/6.

Worst moment of the week: Finding out I had stretch marks was a total bummer... plus I've been dealing with a swollen face, sans drugs, because of the tooth I had removed.

Miss anything? Sleeping on my stomach and back!

Movement: LOTS! Lamby is such an extremely active baby. It's incredible.

Food cravings: Nothing! BUT, I do like Crunch bars/bites when I watch movies at the theatre.

Anything making you queasy or sick: No, siree, bob!

28w 3d

Have you started to show yet: Ohhh, yes! But I guess it's hard to tell from angles other than the side. That's a good thing, I hear.

Gender Prediciton: I'm having a GIRL!

Labor signs: None yet!

Symptoms: Stretch marks underneath my nipples, sciatica and an enlarged belly!

Belly button in or out? In... slightly out. It's weird...

Wedding rings on or off? On!

Happy or moody most of the time? Neutral!

Looking forward to: Biweekly appointments!

    YAY! You're having a girl. I have 2 girls and they're so much fun. I was lucky that I didn't have any stretchmarks but I'd be totally fine if I did. They're a part of the pregnancy journey. Have a great week ahead, Jenny!

  2. I know stretch marks are just part of the journey (and my mom has so many)... It's just different! Thanks, Syd!
