Welcome 3rd Trimester!

Yes, it's here. Two-thirds down, one to go!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along: 28 weeks, exactly

Size of baby: 2 1/4 lbs. about the weight of a Chinese cabbage

Total weight gain: Not really sure, I don't trust the scale at home anymore!

Maternity clothes: Mostly all maternity clothes now. I'm beginning to get a little tired of them, but I know I have a little more time of wearing them ahead of me.

Gender: girl

Food Cravings: Not really any, thankfully. I think I've had a pretty even keeled pregnancy so far.

What I miss: my range of motion

Sleep: I still need more, some nights are better than other. I've never been one to wake up in the middle of the night, but know a do sometimes. I judge a good night of sleep on whether or not I woke up in the middle of it.

Symptoms: oohhh... heart burn at night, but I just take a tums and that seems to help stabilize things

Best moment of the week: more and more movement all the time, she's getting pretty strong these days

What I'm looking forward to: Seeing her beautiful face. A friend of ours just had her baby girl a couple weeks ago and seeing her has gotten me really excited about seeing our own little one.

Additional information: She has eye lashes now, but I'm sure they are see-through like mine and she's opening and closing her eyes. We started a child birth class a couple weeks ago. So now this whole labor thing is on the brain. This week we have our 28 week appt. Pray that I don't have gestational diabetes.

OH! I love that little girl already! I hope she has see-through eyelashes like you! Glad you're feeling good, keep growing!

So glad you are feeling well! You look fantastic! I just had my gestational diabetes test wasn't as bad as everyone made it out to be; but of course, I don't have my results yet;)I'm sure you'll be fine!

Bad Breath Cures said...

hope this helps you, I had acid reflux and awful painful heartburn. My friend told me to check as it helped him get rid of acid reflux and his post nasal drip. I've been following advice for about 4 months now and I feel much better, also at work people are not avoiding me anymore so it seems to have cured my bad breath as well.

You are so CUTE!!!!!!! The test isn't too bad...gross but definitely not the worst thing. Praying for good results.

Oh, and I found these papaya tablets at the health food store that worked really well for heartburn, which I had constantly for the last 2 months.
