28 week update

How far along? 27 Weeks, 6 Days (1.5 hours till 28 weeks)

How is Mommy Feeling? 
- Home sick with a bad cold...still...bleh.  Feeling like a can't breathe right between the stuffy nose and my bras getting too tight again. 
 - Lots of heart burn/reflux, and definitely feeling tired pretty easily these days.  
 - Excited to meet my little girl in 12 weeks.  I can't believe we're so close.

How is Daddy Feeling? 
- Tired...he started a new job here in Boston, and he's traveling each week and working long, long hours.  We started using Facetime to a couple of nights a week to make sure we're talking more, and so the baby can hear his voice.

Total weight gain? 
- approx. 20 lbs...give or take a little weight loss since being sick.

- Sleeplessness, mainly from hourly trips to the bathroom and occasionally from sharp kicks to my organs
- Constantly hungry, though this has lessened since being sick
- Tired easily and often
- Did I mention I have heartburn, like all the time

The Belly? 
- Quite big already.  I met a girl the other day who is four weeks ahead of me, and I swear my bump is about the same size or bigger.  
 - My belly also occasionally dances on its own. Some of the kicks are so strong these days that my whole belly bounces around or waves.  It is great fun to watch.

- See above

What I miss? 
- Exercise, really not getting much these days...and I haven't even been able to return to the new yoga class I joined since I got sick
- My husband, though that isn't pregnancy related
- My shoes and rings...I've been wearing my wedding ring around my neck for a while though, and I just gave up on any other rings (including my beautiful engagement ring).  Also, my feet are a half size larger than they used to be and I can only wear the one new pair of sneakers I bought.  Everything else is in storage.

What I'm looking forward to?
 - Setting up all the baby stuff we've received so far.  I promised myself I would wait another month at least.
 - Seeing my girl for the first time and showering her in kisses. 


  1. Whoop whoop...your baby girl will be in your arms in 12 wks! Old wives tales say heart burn = baby has loadsa hair :)

  2. I'm right here with you on the 12 week countdown, our pregnancies have been so similar! I can't wait till we hold these little miracle babies, woo hoo!

  3.'re so close! Can't wait to see pics of the little one.
