pardon the picture, that was the day we were drowned rats!
How many weeks pregnant?: 28! Third Tri Baby!
Weight gain?: 20 lbs, exactly.
Cravings?: Apples, still. And coffee, though I rarely let myself have any. Rarely. It just smells soooo good to me! This is funny to be only because when I was pregnant with JJ I could not STAND the smell of coffee...it smelled like butt me me. Not this time, baby girl likes her java!
Food aversions?: This seems to be pretty calm compared to previous weeks.
How are you feeling?: Okay, overall. The exhaustion is coming back full force though.
Best pregnancy moment so far?: Continual good news with our baby girls health!
Baby's name?: Still curious?
Boy or girl?: GIRL!
Baby is: Somewhere between 2lbs and 3 lbs I am guessing, as she was already over 2 lbs 2 weeks ago. She is getting bigger though, and taking up more room. The last few days I have been pretty amazed at how long she is! I can feel things like legs and arms now, giving a new perspective on her size. Shes getting ready!
Wearing maternity clothes?: Yes, and my parents were nice enough to supply me with a few more shirts. I was really relishing in the trailer trash, beer gut sort of look...but I thought it was time to move on:P
Other notes: Our next midwife appointment is tomorrow, and its exciting as always. I am getting very impatient now, wanting to nest and get ready for her arrival ( somewhere around 12 weeks away). Its still a little hard to wrap my head around having a girl pretty soon...such a different world for me. And TWO...I can't believe I have two kids! How'd that happen? (I joke, I jest, I know how it happened....I was there:P)
Our "Baby celebration" is coming up in two weeks. We opted for a co-ed get together instead of a tradition baby shower for a few reasons: 1. I have already had one of those. 2. Half of our friends are boys...so we wanted them there too. 3. A night of dessert and coffee sounded like a lot more fun this time!
