28 Weeks

How Far Along: 28 weeks
Size of baby:   baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of his head to his heels
Gender: IT'S A BOY!! We finally agreed on a name... and that we want to keep it a secret! Okay, we've told a few people but are trying to keep it a surprise for the most part!
Maternity Clothes: See week 26. I despise maternity clothes
Movement: This little guy is moving all the time! I'm starting to feel a few soft rib kicks... right now they don't hurt but I had forgotten how uncomfortable rib kicks are when you start to run out of belly room! Also, I've noticed he is sitting much lower than Avery so I'm already starting to feel pressure and making lots of trips to the bathroom!
Sleep: Starting to wake up once in a while to go to the bathroom.  I've been drinking a ton of water which I know I need but doesn't help at night!
Weight Gain: 20 pounds. yikes.

Symptoms: My ankles are still a little swollen at the end of the day but are back to normal in the morning so I'm trying to keep my feet elevated as often as possible. I've started having a few contractions in the evenings.  I told my doctor at the last appt. and she wasn't concerned as long as they are irregular and only a few a night.  Just trying to drink a ton of water and take it easy so that they don't get any more frequent!
Cravings: Sweets
Best moment this week: I can't choose just one... our trip to Colorado, starting the third trimester, monthly checkup confirming everything still looks good (and I passed my glucose test!), starting to decorate the nursery! It has been a great week :)
