Pregnancy Wrap Up: 23-28 weeks

Well the time is just flying, I honestly don't know what happened to the month of February so we've catapulted up to 28 weeks pregnant already!

How far along? 28 weeks 4 days as of this morning

Total Weight Gain? I have technically gained 2 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight

How big is baby? We're still at an eggplant, and as of the growth ultrasound he's measuring 2 lbs 12 oz already. He's also measuring about a week ahead right now which is partly due to his larger noggin measurement... just like his brother ;)

Gender: Baby D is a boy

Maternity Clothes? I wear maternity pants mostly although my regular jeans are just fine... only uncomfortable while sitting down. And I live in stretchy camis and henleys and an occasional maternity top.

Morning Sickness? Just a touch of it coming back in the past couple of days but nothing bad at all

Mood Swings? I'll admit I kind of fly off the handle at the littlest things but I really don't attribute it to the pregnancy but moreso to the stress of life right now... we're busy... we're tired... and we're stressed so that leaves very little patience for things and I've never been good in the patience department anyway ;)

Buy anything for baby this week? I bought the paint for his room finally! It isn't on the wall yet but it's a start! It is a nice cool grey called "Seattle"

Stretch Marks? No new ones but I'm getting a little nervous about the ones from my bellybutton ring hole, just hoping they don't get any bigger... but whatchagonnado

Sleep? Awful. I itch all night, I pee all night, and the upper back pain I have is horrendous... even taking Benadryl every night is doing nothing and I pretty much lay awake all night long and wake up at the crack of dawn. Sucky!

Best Moment This Week: Hearing that my cervical length is waay back up to 44mm, the longest it's been the whole pregnancy, and that Baby D is measuring right on track, great news!

Worst Moment This Week: Pukey baby, diarrhea dogs, and fatigue

Movement: HAH! This kid is a maniac... I didn't think it was possible for a baby to be more active than HL was but D puts him to shame! I kid you not, this kid is kicking, thumping, rolling, and whatever literally 24 hours a day... it's non stop.

Cravings: Still liking the sweeets... mostly baked things like cake, brownies, cookies... that's about it.

Labor Signs: None recently thankfully

Belly Button In or Out? It's still&nb;in, but it's definitely flattening out...

What I miss? energy, the third trimester fatigue has hit hard recently, I literally feel like I have the flu half the time I'm so tired.

What I am looking forward to? Getting the nursery put together finally! Waiting til the 11th hour as usual, so it will be nice to finally start getting stuff organized and ready to go.

Weekly Wisdom: Stop trying to live for others, instead worry about YOU and your family. My little family is all that I need to feel safe, secure, happy, and important and we are my number one priority above all else. With the stress of life lately this has been important for me to focus on because I tend to worry and cater to everyone I can with everything I have and I need to be saving that energy for myself, my husband, and my sons.

Milestones: We made it to third tri and everything is smooth sailing right now, that is HUGE!
