baby #4, 28 weeks


I just came across this post from when I was 28 weeks pregnant with baby S. I thought it would be fun to do a post for this pregnancy at 28 weeks too. :)

How far along: 28 weeks!

Due date: Nov 14th 2015. (Hoping baby will arrive 2 weeks early like my other three!)


Total weight gain/loss:
Way too much! I've never weighed this much before. Just get me through this pregnancy and I SWEAR I will start loosing like crazy!!!


Maternity clothes: I've been wearing them since early in my first trimester

Stretch marks: I have a few. Nothing too noticeable.... pretty good for my fourth pregnancy I think.

Sleep: Sleeping great!

Symptoms: Exhausted ALL the time, hormonal, moody, crying at everything ha!

Food cravings: Nothing much really

Food aversions: Nothing much

Labor signs: None

What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach, walking normally, having more energy, not being moody. But also just trying to enjoy and the last several weeks of what is probably my last pregnancy.

What I'm looking forward to: Meeting my sweet baby!! Having my body back to normal! Eating raw cookie dough haha!

Movement: I feel the baby move several times a day.

Milestones: Reaching my 3rd trimester. Appointments are every 2 weeks now!

How big is baby: According to BabyCenter: By this week, your baby weighs 2 1/4 pounds

(about the size of a large eggplant.)
She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She's also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.
and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels.

Gender: A girl!

Names: Pretty sure we'll be using the girl name we chose right after I found out I was pregnant! Ha! Such a change from last pregnancy.. we weren't sure what we were going to name our third until after she was born.

Best moment(s) last week: Feeling baby move every day and hearing her heartbeat on Friday! Doing great getting through my glucose test appointment (hoping I passed) but at least I was able to lay down and didn't really feel sick at all... that's definitely a first for me!
