Baby Bump Friday: 28 Weeks

Thanks for loving me even though I post iPhone-mirror pictures.

The other night while I was sleeping, Mr. A had his hand on my belly and was feeling our son move around.  He said it was a really surreal moment because it was the first time he and Baby M were hanging out “Just the Two of Them”.  With such sweet moments happening all the time, it’s no wonder I have been all teary and emotional.

Size of baby: 14.8 inches.  Chinese. Cabbage.
Bite me.

Total Weight Gain: 20 lbs I think.  I am really trying to not get too worked up about weight gain.  I am going to eat well can keep moving… and then worry about the “getting in shape” thing for after.

Maternity Clothes: Today I am wearing a shirt AND sweater that are not maternity.  WINNING.
Gender: Little Man Baby
Movement: His movement this week has prompted his very first nickname… I call him a Wiggle Monster.  He’s CONSTANTLY either kicking or wiggling around.  I love it.
Sleep: Why is it that I find the SWEET SPOT of comfort every.single.morning about 20 minutes before the alarm goes off?  It’s torture.
What I miss: I miss sleeping on my stomach.  Or being able to switch I am sleeping on without needing a crane to aid in the process.
Cravings: Right now I am really looking forward to pizza night with my husband AND fruit from the farmers market AND hashbrowns from our breakfast place.  Basically I’m craving the weekend with my husband it seems.  :)
Symptoms: The tears are here ya’ll.  Oh, and KILLER heartburn that necessitates my carrying around a jumbo size thing of TUMS at all times.
What I’m looking forward to: I am SO looking forward to my baby shower in a month, and going on maternity leave in 49 working days.
