As I’m writing this at 28 weeks pregnant, I can’t believe I’m entering in to the 3rd trimester!! It’s been going so fast overall and even with any challenges I’ve faced, it’s been quite an amazing journey! Here’s what’s been happening this month with me and baby girl!
She’s grown from the size of a head of cauliflower to the size of an eggplant. She now weights 2.2-2.5 pounds and is about 14.8 inches long.
I’ve gained about 2.5-3 pounds this month for a total of about 8-9 pounds gained so far this pregnancy.
Same symptoms as last month are still around. I’ve been feeling more ligament pain when I change positions or get up too quickly. My energy is getting lower again and I feel very tired by the end of the day.
I never got the rash-y cheeks again and I’ve eaten bell pepper in the time since. Still not sure what caused that!
Still walking on my lunch breaks at work, walking a lot for my commuting, and stretching when possible.
Potatoes or french fries dipped in mustard, Soft pretzels, spinach, iceberg lettuce, warm cookies, coconut water.
Nothing major. I still don’t really want anything savory in the mornings and have been sticking to oats in different forms or waffles.
Baby Related Purchases:
We moved in to our new two bedroom apartment so I’d count that as a baby related purchase! I also paid for and registered for our upcoming hospital tour and birthing class.
Picking out paint colors for our new home and for her nursery.
Finishing the baby registry!
Feeling her kicks get stronger and learning more about her little personality!
Seeing her for a 28 week ultrasound!
Looking Forward To:

Organizing her things and getting ready for her!
