Bump Day -- 28 Weeks

How far along? 28 weeks

Weight gain/loss: This week: Down 1 pound. Total: Up 12. So apparently when you eat really healthy all week and don't indulge in so much junk, good things happen....imagine that!

Maternity Clothes? Yep! But I need this stupid weather needs to warm up so I can wear most of it!

Sleep: Fantastic!

Stretch marks: Nada.

Best moment this week: Passing my glucose test! Woo hoo!

Movement: During the week he is one active little guy in there! On the weekends however he's a lazy bum...go figure.

Food cravings: Homemade cookies...I even bought chocolate AND white chips yesterday so I could make some...but forgot to get butter. Boo.

Gender: Boy!
Labor Signs: Nada.

Belly Button in or out? Still in. Still rocking the "B" belly.

What I Miss: Nothing! I wouldn't say I love every last stinking moment of being pregnant, but for the most part it's been great! People always ask how I'm doing with this look of concern, like being pregnant is some giant plague or inconvenience and I just smile and say I'm feeling fabulous!

What I'm looking forward to: Getting my first order of "fluffy" mail! We've officially decided to take the plunge with cloth diapering and they were running a buy 5 get 1 free special so I stocked up! Can't wait to get my hands on those cute little fluffy diapers! (And yes I realize they may not seem so cute at 3AM when covered with poo)

Weekly Wisdom: When you get an email coupon from Carter's....immediately hit delete. Do not even open it to see what fabulous things are on sale. Remind yourself your son already has more clothes than you and his closet is overflowing. Step away from the baby stores.

Milestones: I go to the doctor ever 2 weeks now instead of 4. That's crazy! Guess we're in the homestretch!

And last but not is my dad's Birthday! He happened to be in town last night and stayed at our place so I was able to serenade him this morning with a candle lit muffin. I couldn't tell you the last time I was actually with my dad on his special day! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!!!!

Happy birthday to your dad! His boat is amazing!

Yay for cloth diapers. As we're TTC I've convinced myself we will use cloth. Will you email me or do a post about what brand you chose and all that good stuff!? I love reading about what others experiences are. Have a fabulous weekend!

Such a relief to pass that glucose test!
You still look fab and have already learned so much! Always hit delete when those Carter coupons come. lol Love it!

Jen said...

Congrats on the glucose test! You look great, love your hair!

And with the revolution in cloth diapers these days (um, they have prints and velcro now!), I'm thinking I may go that route too. Better for baby, better for the environment, and now better for mom too! Win-win-win!

I’m so glad that things are still going well with you and baby boy! It sounds like it’s been a very good week and homemade chocolate chip cookies sound so good right now. It’s so funny that you mentioned Carter’s, because my pregnant girlfriend just went on a shopping spree there. I can see how it would be tempting. She got the cutest things.

Happy Birthday to your dad! I hope you have a great weekend.

P.S. I left you an award ;)
