Bump Update: 28 Weeks - 3rd Trimester!!!

Can I just say that there are a million things to consider when having a baby??  lol.  Seriously though.  And what is super frustrating is that the more educated I become, the more choices and decisions present themselves.  I don't feel like I can make so many decisions in just the 3 months that we have left (less than that really).  But I am confident that all will work out well.  God is watching over all 3 of us and has our best interest at heart.  He is all we need.


Can't believe how much she is growing!
Growing, growing, growing!  Just 4 weeks ago I was NOT this big.  hehe.  Can't wait to see 4 more weeks.....

This week, baby is the size of a: Either one of my apps is ahead or the other is behind because one said cauliflower last week and the other said cauliflower this week.  Hmmmm....

Next appointment: Just had an appointment today.  Now that we are in our 3rd trimester, we go every two weeks instead of four.  So only two more weeks until I hear the pitter-patter of that precious little heart!

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  Slowly but surely.  No concerns from the doc so all is good!

Exercise: Walking and painting for the most part.  And we've started my Bradley Method exercises...which are basically just tailoring things I already do, like sitting or bending over.  Hoping to have a post all about this soon so I won't go into too much detail here.  :)

Maternity Clothes:  I still have those lucky couple pair of shorts (stretch material) that fit.  But other than that - maternity it is.  I've even started wearing maternity tops just so they aren't too short.  :P  

Sleep: Going well.  The only thing I can complain about is that if I wake up, even for a half of a second, I have to go to the bathroom.  There is no "holding it" until I fall back asleep these days.  If I have to go, I have to go.  This makes for about 4 or 5 trips to the bathroom every night (if not more).  Fun!  But the good news is I don't seem to have any trouble falling back asleep so that's nice.

Food Cravings/Aversions: Nope.

Movement: Oh boy!  Depends on the day but yesterday was insane!  Pretty sure it was because of the sugar drink for my glucose test...but wow!  If I was sitting, she was moving...everywhere!

What I Miss: Being able to fall back asleep without having to get up and go.  ;)

What I'm Loving: Preparing Sprout's room. Now that the paint is on the walls I feel like it is her room now.  And I just got a few bags of clothes from a friend and LOVED going through all those little outfits.  Can't wait to get them taken care of in their proper spots.  :)      

What I'm Looking Forward To: Being able to share this little one's name with the world...which won't be until her Birthday, but I am so in love with our name choice.  It is beautiful - meaning and all!    

Best Moment This Week: Sitting and feeling her move during lunch yesterday.  It was so unreal how much she was moving and how much I could feel.  What a miracle!

Milestones: THIRD TRIMESTER!!!!  Need I say more??

Goals: Get caught up in our garden with weeding and fertilizing (organically of course).  Finish painting boards for the ceiling in our room and Baby Girl's room.  Touch up nursery trim.


  1. The fun stage where you "go" all the time! And possible brace yourself every time a sneeze is coming on! ;)
