28 weeks

Hi all! No board again for Week 28... but I was featured on Spearmint Baby instead! :) Check it out!

How far along? 28 Weeks
Total weight gain: 26 lbs. 
Maternity clothes? Some- not all. I have bought lots of flowy & stretchy regular tops to go with maternity jeans and leggings. 
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: Iffy. I am very sleepy come morning, and am getting up to use the bathroom more frequently in the middle of the night, and rolling from one side to the other has gotten a little difficult. Can't really find a comfortable position for very long. :(
Best moment this week: Working on Rilynn's nursery- my friend Abbey and I have sewn her curtains, and are in the process of changing her bumpers a bit (I know, I bought them finished on Etsy and am taking them apart- don't ask!) 

Miss Anything? My old energy and being "light on my feet"... I am now the polar opposite. My feet and back kill me every evening.  
Movement: She likes to go crazy all day one day and then rest the next. Some days she jabs and kicks while others it feels more like she is rolling around. 
Food cravings: I cannot get enough ice cream sandwiches right now! Luckily, I just ate the last one. :)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing. Just still can't stand Chris's cologne and yet he STILL continues to spray it in our bedroom.
Have you started to show yet? Oh yea. My belly looks like I swallowed a basketball. 

Belly Button in or out? Almost out!
Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: As I hit the third trimester, I feel that I have a shorter circuit lately. I just can't get comfortable and am a bit irritable because of it. The anxiety is also setting is as I begin to worry about my mothering skills and getting everything done- its about crunch time!
Looking forward to: Our 4D pictures August 1st at Week 30! I just pray she cooperates- if she does, it is more exciting than finding out her gender!!!!

26 weeks

How far along? 26 Weeks
Total weight gain: Went to the doctor Tuesday- I have gained a total of 25 pounds. I will not however, tell you what the scale is reading. I myself could die when I see it. 
Maternity clothes? Maternity jeans, yes. I was so depressed to say that until a friend let me borrow her designer maternity jeans. They are Paige Jeans and quite AMAZING. They are so so comfy and look fabulous! 
Stretch marks? Not that I can tell!
Sleep: Pretty good. Been tired after all the traveling and staying up late lately. I also borrowed a friend's maternity body pillow and that thing has helped tremendously.
Best moment this week: I have been babysitting a 9 month old- working on my mothering skills- and it has been super fun. I will miss seeing her grin when I come it to get her from her naps!

Miss Anything? my old weight- the weight I am now carrying in my belly has caused back pain and some random swelling in my ankles that I am NOT happy about. 
Movement: I have felt Rilynn a great deal more in the past two weeks. Last night, I swear I could almost feel her distinct toes in my side. :)
Food cravings: I think I ate- or wanted to eat- Dippin Dots every day while I was at the beach. Ice cream is still my go to.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing! Except those dirty diapers while babysitting. Wow.
Have you started to show yet? Duh. My bridesmaid's dress for a July 21 wedding has been an interesting fete.

Belly Button in or out? Almost out!
Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! Just a bit restless at times. And starting to get sleepy again. :(
Looking forward to: the nursery chandelier has come in, and so have the crib bumpers and my fabrics for the den. So excited to get it all in- pictures to come!
