Pregnancy Update: 28 Weeks

Baby Stubbe - 28 weeks

How far along: 28 weeks... except maybe not! I had a sonogram done yesterday and tiny baby is not so tiny. I'm measuring at 30 weeks and 5 days... the baby should be about 2.5 pounds but is already 3.5 pounds. The technician said it could mean my due date is wrong or it could just mean that I have big babies. I guess we'll talk about it more at my next appointment. With Janie, I was pushing for the latest possible due date so I could wait as long as I wanted, but this time, knowing I have to have a c-section and knowing how large Janie was, makes me think that going early would be okay.

Total weight gain/loss: I only weigh myself at doctor's appointments, so my total loss is still 13 pounds.

Maternity clothes: I'm really loving dresses these days so I don't have to deal with a  waistband.

Stretch marks: Just old ones.

Sleep: Much much better since last week. In fact, I just woke up from a nap! 

Best moment this week: Seeing my big baby on screen yesterday - it is truly a miracle :)

Miss anything: Being able to turn over in bed easily.

Movement: This baby is a mover. The ultrasound technician even commented on it.

Food cravings: Fruit, popsicles, ice cold water, milk, cold and sweet things. I was also craving a Publix sub after talking to my sister today. No Publix around here!

Anything making you queasy or sick: I've been feeling pretty good this week :)

Have you started to show yet: Oh yes!

Gender: I still think it's a boy. I've been thinking about it so much since yesterday. The technician said she could tell what it was and it was so weird knowing that she KNEW but we still didn't ask. 

Labor signs: Nope.

Belly button in or out: Still working its way out... still weird!

Wedding rings on or off: On.

Happy or moody: Happy. Moody. I'm pregnant :/

Other weird and random pregnancy related things: Can't think of anything right now. Oh there's one. I forget everything, all the time. This is not so unusual from my normal state but it is rather annoying.

Looking forward to: Now that we've seen pictures and watched sweet baby moving all around, I just can't WAIT to be holding him/her in my arms. It is sooo exciting!

Milestones: I'm now in my 3rd trimester! After this next visit, I'll started seeing the doctor every 2 weeks. BabyCenter says that I should have gained 11 pounds by now... I'm just 24 pound behind that. What to Expect says that the baby is about 16 inches by now. I bet this baby is 18 or 19 already.

From Janie's perspective: Janie was a little bit confused by the ultrasound pictures. She recognized right away it was a baby in the pictures, but didn't seem interested in looking at them/talking about them. Today when I showed her again, she thought that it was a dog in the pictures. I guess it does looks a little strange. She still continues to be very interested in her baby dolls. The other day I went to pick her up from Mamie and Papa's house after school, and she was still napping. When I peeked in on her, she had both of her baby dolls laying facedown on her chest, like you would hold a real baby if you were taking a snooze with them. It was so so sweet :)
