bump update - 28 weeks - round 2

Ultrasound: I had an ultrasound on January 23rd and baby weighs 3 lbs 1 oz

Due Date: April 13, 2015 (I'll have a scheduled c-section sometime between April 6th-10th)

Gender: Boy!

Movement: Lots of swirling around, kicks and punches after I eat, if I sit down to relax and right before bed

Feeling: Great! I feel so full of life, appreciation and am dreaming big for my little guy! Heartburn can kick it to the curb any day now though...

Food Cravings: No true cravings, but cold snacks always sound good - apple juice, cuties, popsicles

Food Aversions: Fish, Asian food, pickles, chicken

Clothes: I'm in practically all maternity clothes now. My pre-maternity shirts fit, but they're all getting too short, so I can only wear them around the house. I'm mostly rocking maternity shirts/tanks with pre-maternity sweaters. All jeans and leggings are maternity, but my pre-maternity compression workout pants and all sweatpants fit. 

Stretch Marks: Nope, but I am carrying much more in my stomach this time and am more concerned about stretch marks than ever before

Sleep: Sleep has been wonderful! A couple weeks ago I woke up from a nap, stretched my legs straight out and my back immediately cracked. It was a glorious feeling, as it relieved all back and hip stress/tension that had built up. I've felt amazing while sleeping ever since!

Symptoms: My big belly is making it harder and harder to bend over, get up off of the couch/floor and play with Trace. I can't believe how round and hard my stomach is!

What I Miss: More than anything I really miss Trace being able to sit on my lap and snuggle with me comfortably. He tries so hard, but my belly is just too big.

Best Moment: Cleaning out our "storage room" to turn into a baby nursery.... finally

Memorable Moment: Ringing in, what we plan to be, my last New Years sans champagne toast! I just love my bump and this baby I'm growing and am really soaking in every little moment. 


  1. Loving that blue color on you! You look great, Mama! And I know what you mean - at almost 26 weeks now, the bump has definitely become harder and more "ball-like" to where I can't easily bend right over it like I used to, lol. Sometimes I forget that it's there and try to bend over, and then end up like "Ooops" and have to try again. Ha!

  2. Last? Come on...3 is all the rage ;) Joking it's a circus, enjoy that sweet family of boys you will have :) I totally miss being pregnant when I read these posts but then I totally don't miss it either...I think you only remember the good parts, life's way of messing with you - lol! You look beautiful Mama!

  3. I adore these pregnancy updates & pictures of you! Such wonderful memories for you to have! :)

  4. Ryan's due date was April 13th!!! He was born March 24th though.


I love hearing from you and always try to respond to your comments!
