Baby M 2.0 Update: Week 28

How am I this far in my pregnancy? 
I feel like time is flying and I am prefectly fine with that, but then I freak myself out knowing how much time is left and knowing I haven’t done ANYTHING to prepare for Baby 2. 

How far along? 28 weeks
Total weight gain: I think I am about 17 or 18 lbs.
Maternity clothes?
I’ve been in pretty much all maternity pants now but I can still wear plenty of my regular shirts.
Stretch marks?
Not new ones… just the ones from Miss P. 😛
Sleep: Since we’ve been home, I had a few nights of congestion so I have had to get up more than once at night to try to clear up my nose but other than that, I am sleeping well still.

Best moment this week: Few moments this week… Everything went well at my 28 wk appt. Hated that I had to take my gluclose test but thrilled I PASSED! And we got brand new countertops installed and today are cabinets are being painted! 🙂

Miss Anything? Breathing normally and not needing to eat something every 2 stinkin’ hours! I am getting to the point of my hips hurting, especially in the mornings, so waking up and walking normally- not like a 98 yr old who needs a walker would be great! lol

Movement: I
definitely feel baby girl much more these days. She is pretty laid back
and chill but she is starting to move more and I definitely can expect
to feel her around certain times now.
Food cravings: Nope which isn’t surprising because I didn’t crave anything with Miss P.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still

when I get really congested and can’t breathe it makes me sick. Other
than that, it is when I let too much time pass between snacks or meals.
Gender: GIRL!!!
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly Button (in or out): It is still in but rather shallow these days.

Wedding Rings (on or off): On
Symptoms: Congestion!

BLAH! A little round ligament pain and I am starting to get the hip pain when sleeping on one side for too long. I think I need to go to a chiropractor and get my hips realigned. Pretty sure one good push would do it for me!
Happy or Moody most of the time: I have been happy but I have had quite a few moody moments as well. I think with the house being a wreck from the kitchen renovation is driving me nuts and my patience has been short.
Looking forward to: Our kitchen being complete! Well, the cabinets painted at least. We will still need to pick out and install a backsplash.
And I am HOPING and PRAYING to be able to find some crafting time this week too!
