How far along? 28 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +14 Staying steady this week.
Symptoms? No more round ligaments this week! Have had a few mild cases of heartburn, but nothing crazy. And about every 15 minutes or so, my bladder feels like it’s going to explode!
Sleep: Sleeping great, but have woken up sore from sleeping in the same positions all night long. Try sleeping on your right/left arm and shoulder for 8 hours straight.
Best moment this week: Honestly, cleaning out some of our closets this past weekend! I love the clutter-free feeling after a good deep cleaning. We cleaned out both of our closets downstairs, as well as our bedroom closet….getting rid of all of the clothes we don’t wear anymore (or CAN’T wear anymore), old jackets, purses, shoes, you name it. Making room for more stuff when baby girl arrives!
Miss Anything? Anything I can’t have while I’m pregnant. You name it. Wine, beer, sushi, sangria, margaritas!
Movement: Moving quite a bit! Still thinking she is head down by the way she moves…..kicking me in multiple places at the top of my belly and only feeling a few punches at the bottom.
Food cravings: El Porton! Salsa, fajita chicken nachos, and mexican rice.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not lately!
Gender prediction: Bows!
Labor Signs: None so far. I know most people begin to start feeling some braxton hicks contractions during their third trimester, but I haven’t felt any yet.
Belly Button in or out? Shallow, but still in!
Wedding rings on or off? On! Woo hoo!
Mood: Much better mood this week!
Weekly Wisdom: After our huge closet purge this weekend, I would say that it is good to let go of the things that are of no use to you anymore. Obviously we have our keepsakes and boxes full of old pictures, medals, etc…… My favorite thing to say when we were cleaning out the closets was “but those were really expensive!” or “I might be able to fit back into that tiny size 2 dress again” (yeah right) If it hasn’t been touched in 5 years and you don’t plan on using it in the next 2, get rid of it!
Looking forward to: The POOL! We never made it to the pool last weekend due to some stormy weather, but this weekend calls for lots of sunshine and warm temps! Hellllooooo summer!
