Welcome to my blog!

28+ weeks

How far along: 28.5 weeks


How much weight gain/loss: 12 lbs. gained! I came home from Tennessee 17 POUNDS above my pre-pregnancy weight but shed 5 lbs. within a few days (and with the help of our no-sugar Daniel Fast). Hehe. Get this though: a week of no meats, sugar and minimal dairy and I haven't thrown up even once or popped a single Zofran or Tums. Hmm...

Maternity clothes: Obviously. 

Sleep: Amazing. I'm transitioning Laura from two naps a day to one and she's been sleeping from 8pm until 8:30 or 9 every morning. Praaaaiiise. 

Best moments of the week: Our lazy Sunday was EVERYTHING.

Miss anything: The beach. This is completely unrelated to pregnancy, but I've been dreaming about the ocean this week. 

Movements: Getting bigger but still mostly gentle and sweet. 

Food cravings: Citrus and chocolate. 

Anything making you sick/queasy: Still pretty sensitive to smells. 

Have you started to show yet: I think the picture at the top answers that question. Hehe.

Gender: Girl. Every time I have an ultrasound I ask them to check. Still girl. 

Labor signs: I'll spare you all the details but yes, my body is clearly prepping to push this baby out. Eeeek. 

Belly button in or out: In 

Wedding rings on or off: On 

Moody or happy: Mostly happy. I'm really enjoying these rainy days at home with my babies. 

Most looking forward to: Meeting with my doula this week aaaand an upcoming hair appointment. Time to chop this mop. 


P.S. Last week's ultrasound showed NO SIGN of placenta previa! :) Baby girl is head down, mostly "engaged" (tech couldn't even get a measurement of the top of her head because she couldn't see it!) and weighed in at 2.5 lbs. which seemed a little large to me but alas, I like to keep in mind the HUGE margin of error that goes along with ultrasounds. After all, babies are "knit together in secret" and that miraculous process is still something even the professionals GUESS about often.
