28 Weeks

How far along? 28 Weeks

Total Weight Gain? 15 lbs

Symptoms? Heartburn still tops the list. Are mood swings caused by pregnancy? If not, can I still blame them on it?

Stretch Marks? I have a bunch of small ones starting on my stomach. They're maybe as long as my fingernail is wide. They don't bother me as much though. I just keep telling myself they're signs Cate is growing.

Sleep? Awake constantly. Wake up to turn over. Wake up to pee. Wake up again for no reason. Must be God's way of training.

Best Moment Last Week? Feeling her move. I can't get enough of it!

Movement? Usually when I lay down to sleep, but more during the day when I'm up moving around.

Food Cravings? Just the milk, which I think is more for the heartburn.

What I miss? My balance. Being able to put pants on without falling over. Being able to reach things on the floor. Being able to get off the couch without help. ha ha. Yeah, I'm leaving those, but adding being able to put on my socks without losing my breath.

What I am looking forward to? Our appointment right before Christmas. We should get an ultrasound again!

Milestones? 28 weeks is a milestone. And to think I made it all this way without killing any fourth graders!

How is Daddy? He offered to help me put my socks on this morning, but I'm pretty sure he was laughing at me on the inside.


  1. 28 weeks IS a milestone, congrats on reaching it! And, yes, I would definitely blame mood swings on pregnancy. If you're on Christmas break now, I hope you enjoy your time away from those precious kiddos ;).
