28 weeks

Ninja Turtle Peyton and me

How far along: 28 weeks and 4 days
size of baby: an eggplant
Gender: baby boy!
Weight gain: I'm thinking 11 lbs, but will know for sure at my next Dr. appointment on Tuesday.
Maternity clothes: all the time...still trying to wear old t-shirts when I lounge around the house and I look kind of silly.
Stretch marks: staying the same
Belly button in or out: starting to get flat
Sleep: It's ok. Still waking up with P. When I roll from side to side, it's getting more difficult.
Best moment this week: Going to Madison, WI for Josh's STEP 3 exam. P and I got to swim, shop at a nice mall, visit the Children's museum, and try some fun restaurants. It was a fun little family trip...even though Josh had a 2-day test that was 8 hours each day.
Worst moment this week: P had croup that lasted almost 2 weeks. I hated hearing my little man cough and struggle to breathe. He's finally doing better now. The good news is we have a nebulizer now in case any of us needs a breathing treatment.
Miss anything: nothing really at the moment. Warmer weather would be nice.
Movement: He's a ninja! Especially when I'm laying down. I forgot how cool it feels.
Cravings or aversions: Sweet tooth...
Symptoms: still feeling a few Braxton Hicks each day. I've just started having a little sciatic nerve pain, ouch!
Looking forward to: my glucose test next week! (NOT, fingers crossed that I don't have to do the 3-hour test as well) But it will be nice to check on baby. I get to take Peyton to a sibling's class on March 17 which will be fun.
