28 Weeks - Pregnancy #4
Each Monday, I'd like to do a highlights post, including a picture, summarizing the differences in my pregnancy from week to week. I totally "grabbed" this idea from Kelly. I've done this with my three previous pregnancies (you can go to the search box and type in "pregnancy," or "week #" if you're interested in how my previous pregnancies progressed), as well, and I still think it is a great way to jot down the things that I don't want to forget later on.
How far along: 28 weeks - Third Trimester!
Size of baby: This little one is a little under 15 inches long (head to toe) and about the weight of a large eggplant.
Total weight gain/loss: I'm up 14 pounds total as of my last appointment.
Maternity clothes: spaghetti strap shirts, loose skirts or summery dresses, cute/comfy shorts, flip-flops, long-sleeve soft, fitted shirts
Gender: boy :) 💙
Movement: hiccups and big kicks :)
Sleep: Sleep has been ok; will be glad when this sciatic nerve pain eases some
What I miss: my rear end not cramping with sciatic pain
Cravings: chocolate protein shakes with peanut butter
Symptoms: sciatic nerve (yoga helps a lot) pain
Exercise: walking a couple of times a week; 15-20 minutes of yoga 3-5 times a week
Best moment this week: realizing that this pregnancy has been my best one yet. I am the healthiest (and most mentally/emotionally stable lol) I've been, and my energy level has been far greater than with any other pregnancy. It's kind of incredible what great nutrition will do for one's body. I don't take it lightly or for granted.
