Today marks 28 weeks according to the start of my week long “due date” beginning on June 30th and running until July 5th. HA! Whoever heard of a due week?!? It’s really fine by me, as long as she is here by July 5th and no later! HA! I guess we will see about that! Bets anyone?
Well, I figured since a month has gone by since my last pregnancy update, it’s time for another one! I can’t believe it’s been 7 months already! Only 3 more to go!!
How Far Along: 28 Weeks
Size of baby: Finley is 2.5 lbs. according to my “Week by Week” pregnancy book (the BEST pregnancy book out there in my opinion!!) and is the size of a head of cabbage!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 17 lbs – man, that feels like a lot!
Maternity Clothes: I can still wear my regular pants with the help of a hair tie or belly-band! However, maternity pants are MUCH more comfortable! Everything else is still the same. Although I am hoping to do some maternity shopping in the near future. Ahem!!
Gender: It's a girl!!! Finley Grace Smith
Movement: She loves to move when I’m sitting down. She moves A LOT!! In fact, Tuesday at our OB check-up, as we were listening to her heartbeat, she decided to kick at the probe. Soccer Player?
Sleep: Wish I was sleeping a little better. I wake up at least 3 times a night to pee. I get the best sleep in the early hours of the morning, but Cori must think that’s funny because she always wants to get up and play when all I want to do is SLEEP!!
What I miss: Nothing really - maybe sleeping on my stomach?
Cravings: Nothing in particular at the moment.
Symptoms: Pressure in my pelvic area! They say it’s worse the second time around and I sure can attest to that! After being on my feet for a long period of time, I literally feel like she might fall out!
Best Moment this week: Hearing my sweet girl’s heartbeat on Tuesday!
I think I look about the same, don’t you? Maybe a little bit bigger this time, but I’m starting to even out. I’ve felt SO MUCH BIGGER this time for a long time, but maybe it’s slowing down. :)
This is one of my FAVORITE pics of our belly photo session. Cori has been sitting on our bed each week and watching daddy take pictures of my growing belly. This time, she wanted in on the fun!
I LOVE my girl!! :)
PS – I have been SEARCHING for smocked dresses for my girls. I LOVE them, but they are so expensive!! We found a super cute one while in Savannah, but it was $98 on sale for $49 and David said that was NOT a good deal. Even though in the whole realm of smocked dresses, it was probably a good deal. Oh well. However, I stopped by The Little Shop yesterday and found a super cute smocked dress for ONLY $8!!! Now, that’s a GREAT DEAL!! SO excited!! :) What do you think?
