Bumpdate 28 weeks


How Far Along: 28 weeks. I think I am now in my 3rd trimester! How did that happen so fast??? If I wasn’t documenting, I swear I would have to go back and double check!

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I swear I have “skinny” days and days where I wonder how big I will be when she is born. Ha!

Gender: It’s a girl!

Movement: Some days she is really moving and some days are more chill. She likes to move the most at night.

Sleep: Pretty good this week.

Maternity Clothes: I ordered several maternity tops from the Gap. Still wearing mainly normal dresses and I haven’t even bothered with pants.

Symptoms: I have now moved to all proteins first thing in the morning and more mini meals to combat any faint feelings. Last week that was successful.

I am now also getting swollen ankles if I am outside in the heat after walking the dog. Not too bad, but meh.

Aversions: Fried food still and yesterday I was at a baby shower for a friend and we were talking about how the thought of alcohol repulses me. Ha!

Cravings: I am currently craving smores. (Random!) I want one so badly. I saw this recipe today for smores bars and must have them asap. Then I will follow that up with a real one.

Also, I have been making the lazy man’s version of “puppy chow.” I get my honey nut chex mix and dip it peanut butter and add a chocolate chip. Perfect.

Best Moment this week: I got my invitation in the mail for my first shower! Aren’t they adorable??!


How cute is the back?

Also, Tommy’s uncle has gone missing. If you happen to know anyone in the IL/KY/OH area, please pass this link on to them:
