28 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along
: 28 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby is the size of a Small Cabbage! 17 in, 2.9 lbs estimate
Maternity Clothes: Oh of course. I'm a little peeved that when I wasn't pregnant stores were coming out with all sorts of cute maternity clothes and now--not so much. I really only wear maternity jeans with regular, long shirts.
Gender: It's a BOY! Bennett Robert
Movement: He's getting stronger! (Must be my new Iron supplements I've been prescribed!) His movements are starting to get painful. Bennett is located a lot higher up in my belly than Dominic ever was so I never really got to experience rib roundhouse kicks like I do with B.
Sleep: Not sleeping too well--if I lay in one position too long it really hurts my back and hips so I toss and turn all night.
What I miss: Being able to bend over!!! With Bennett so high up, it's getting really hard to bend over and do simple things like put socks on hah!
Cravings: I reallllllllly want Nachos with cheese and jalapenos but I the thought of the heartburn that would give me is enough to kill the craving.
Symptoms: heartburn
Best Moment this week: Dominic told me that he "loves baby Bennett" and he wants to "share his toys" with him. I get emotional excited when I think of the two boys playing and growing up together! :)
Next Appointment: October 26th
