28 weeks…last trimester baby!

Thinking about the fact that I am now in my last trimester brings me so much joy, but also a little more anxiety than I have had in the first 2 trimesters. So much joy that I get to meet the little guy in just a few months and see whose nose he has and whose eyes he has and compare the pix to our baby pictures. I just can’t wait to meet this little guy who has been playing soccer in my belly for so long now. On the other hand, I have so much to do in preparation for his arrival, or so it seems. Finish the nursery, get my job in a good rhythm that I feel comfortable with it when the he arrives. Also, anxiety over will I be able to sleep at all, will I be a good mom, what is my birthing plan (whatever that means), and  have I done enough research on how to care for this new life. 

Anyway, I know everything will work out and we are just so thankful for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby boy that all of those anxieties are dumb and I get over them quickly.

We went to dinner last night with some of our closest friends, the Hertzbergs, from Moody church at Flemings, which was such a fun celebration for reaching our last trimester. I took this picture when we got home. Emotional day (car breakdown) leaves circles under the eyes, so please excuse them!

How far along: 28 weeks
Total weight gain: gained 17 lbs total (lost a pound in the last 4 weeks, go figure!)
Maternity clothes: oh yes, packed up my regular pants a few weeks ago!

Stretch marks: None and hoping not to get any. Thank you for good genes!

Sleep: Someone told me that you sleep better in your last trimester, true, the last 3 nights I have slept through the night!

Best moment of this week: Having dinner with good friends after a little bit of an emotional roller coaster over my car.

Miss anything: Nothing really

Movement: This baby is a gymnast, doesn’t stop kicking, especially right before bed. So fun to feel him hiccup now too.

Food cravings: tomato, avocado and cucumber salads. Oh and peppermint ice cream for dessert. Obviously not together!

Anything making you queasy or sick: nope- hooray!

Have you started to show yet: Getting bigger every day I feel like! 1 pound at least a week from here on out, crazy!

Gender: BOY!!

Labor signs: none, it will be crazy when I say yes to this.

Belly button in or out: In, but getting shallower (is that a word?), which is crazy because I am known for an oddly deep belly button.

Wedding rings on or off: On

Happy or moody most of the time: Super happy most of the time, but moody this week.

Looking forward to: Our first baby shower next weekend. Thank you wonderful women in my life for blessing us more than we deserve!

We received our first gift in the mail this week, so fun! Thank you John and Monica for this awesome baby rocker! This is me putting it together! Jack is never far off, can you spot him?

There is a reason it is for babies and not for dogs, Jack wasn’t thrilled by the thing 🙂

So long for now, have a wonderful week!
