BUMPdate: 28 Weeks

Size of the baby?
The size of a butternut squash (about 17 inches, 3.1lbs.)
Total Weight Gain/Loss?
19 lbs. I actually lost a few pounds as a result of my new meal plan.
Maternity Clothes?
It's still a mix. I'm amazed at how many non-maternity clothes I'm still able to wear.
P.S Not to brag or anything, but the sweater I'm wearing here is a H&M XS!
Stretch marks?
None, thanks to Palmer's Cocoa Butter and Lush's Charity Pot (cocoa butter & almond oil)
Best Moments?
The room is painted, the crib is assembled, and the dresser just came yesterday. The nursery is coming together and nesting is in full effect.
Lots. The other day she was kicking so hard that I thought she was going to bust right through my skin and jump out and then she was kind of quiet the next day- she must have tired herself out.
Food Cravings?
Chocolate. Of course I'm supposed to stay away from the sweets and oh my goodness am I struggling! I feel like I'm on a reality show sometimes, it's probably called something like Extreme Pregnancy Challenge. I've been watching what I eat, planning out meal times, exercising, and obsessing over my diet and my readings. The prize at the end is meeting my beautiful baby girl but oh my is this a challenge!
Anything making you queasy or sick?
What I miss?
Chocolate. Being able to bend like I used to.
I feel great! The only symptoms are the occassional hip and lower back pains but that only happens after a long day with a lot of standing/activity.
Labor signs?
No. 10 weeks and 6 days to go!
Belly Button In or Out?
It's officially flat but still an innie.
Wedding rings On or Off?
Still on! I've been fortunate enough to not have any swelling...yet.
Well, by the end of the day I am exhausted and I fall asleep right away. My husband thinks I'm becoming narcoleptic at night. On the flip side, I wake up early every morning on my own ready to start the day. Strange. Oh and can I just tell you how hard it is to switch positions?! Simply turning from one side to another is such a task that it wakes me up.
What I'm looking forward to?
Ultrasound on the 28th!
