28 Week Update

How Far Along:
  28 Weeks

Size of the Baby:
She is now the size of an Eggplant!

Maternity Clothes:
After having an incredibly uncomfortable day yesterday in my clothing,
I spent quite a bit of time at TJ Max and Target today
buying some MUCH NEEDED bigger clothing
that will hopefully stretch with me throughout the remainder of the pregnancy.
I also bought some stretchy fabric at JoAnn's to make a Maxi Skirt...
because Maxi Skirts and my yoga pants are pretty much the only bottoms I can wear now.

Weight gain:
Yeah... I've gained a total of 21 pounds now.

There has definitely been a turn of events with sleep.
I'm feeling the weight of this baby much more this week,
which means my comfort level throughout the day has drastically decreased.
By 2pm everyday I longingly look at the clock and say to myself:
"Is it bedtime yet?"
All I want to do is put on my PJ's, curl up into bed, and sleep.
Because at least when I'm sleeping,
I'm not feeling the discomfort as much as when I am awake.

Best Moment of the Week:
Nothing too special this week...
Does sleep count?

Yep, she's moving alright.
The other night it felt like baby girl decided to shift all of her weight
to one side of my belly and press really hard.
That was a crazy feeling.

Food Cravings:
Iced Decaf Vanilla Lattes are a bit like heaven right now.

Baby Girl.

Belly Button in or out:

Wedding ring on or off:
  It still fits (even though it is off in this picture).

Anything making you queasy or sick:
Eggs are starting to be unappetizing again
(unless I scramble them with lots of seasoning).

What I miss:
I miss my belly not CONSTANTLY itching!

What I am looking forward to:
My baby shower!!!!
It's in 5 days.

Nothing new since last week.

Ways to Relax:
I am almost done with the book Les Miserables!
I am seriously going to be so proud of myself
when I finish that monster of a book.
