Bumps & Braids: Weeks 28 & 29
How far along? 28 Weeks officially in the 3rd trimester! Woohoo! The end is drawing near. I’m getting excited, but also a little sad, and a lot overwhelmed! I’m going to miss having baby inside me and being able to protect him so much.
How Big is baby? As big as an eggplant! Every week it seems so crazy how big he is! It just doesn’t seem like he can get any bigger!
Weight Gained? Haven’t gained since last week!
Maternity clothes? Still going strong in all my normal clothes!
Stretch marks? None
Sleep? SO uncomfortable!! I’m just uncomfortable now. I need a thousand pillows just to even get a little comfy!
Best moment this week? The best moment this week goes with this weeks picture of my cousin and me! We got engaged a week apart, married a week apart, and now we are having babies a week apart! It is seriously so fun and I’m so excited that she’s having a boy as well so they can be friends! I’m really close to my cousin so it makes it even better!
Miss Anything? Sleeping on my tummy! I just can’t get comfortable anymore!
Movement? So much movement!! He goes crazy sometimes and it’s SO weird to watch!
Anything making you queasy or sick? I’ve felt pretty good this week which is a nice relief!
Cravings? I crave ice cream all day long! Good thing frozen yogurt is fat free and is a close second to ice cream!
Gender? Baby boy!
Labor Signs? None!
Symptoms? Back aches, Braxton hicks, leg aches, and exhaustion!
Belly Button in or out? It’s not quite out, but still kind of just flat. It looks so weird!!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or Moody most of the time? Depends on the day! Some days are happy…some days just don’t ask 🙈
Looking forward to? Finishing baby’s room!
This weeks braid? Maybe I should change this to this weeks hairstyle! 🙈 but really you can never go wrong with a messy side bun and hat! Hats are my go to when I don’t have time to do my hair! They look so cute and take no effort!
My sweet sister left on her mission this week! So many bitter/sweet feelings! I am SO sad she won’t be here when baby is born, but I know she is needed more in Scotland and Ireland!
How far along? 29 weeks!! I can’t believe how fast the weeks are flying by!
How Big is baby? As big as a Hawaiian pineapple! Yum I love pineapple and I love baby!
Weight Gained? Stayed the same
Maternity clothes? Still fitting in all my normal clothes!
Stretch marks? Not yet, but I feel that my belly might have hit its limit! There’s no way it can get bigger!! (But everyone assures me it can! 😳😩)
Sleep? Not so great. I’m just uncomfortable!
Best moment this week? I’m not sure if this should be best or worst moment of the week! Haha but sending my sister off on her mission was like I said earlier, so bitter/sweet!
Miss Anything? My sister! (Does that count??) haha
Movement? Lots! He has these moments where he goes CRAZY and I swear he’s going crazy fists in there haha
Anything making you queasy or sick? Not so much this week!
Cravings? Fruit!! Since I can’t have many treats, fruit is sometimes the closest thing I can get to a treat!
Gender? Baby boy!
Labor Signs? None
Symptoms? Heartburn 😩 and leg aches. Probably the worst combo for sleeping ever!
Belly Button in or out? Still at that weird middle stage!
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time? This week has been so emotional! I’m not even sure how to explain the emotions!
Looking forward to? Meeting sweet baby boy!
This weeks braid? I’m pregnant and sad my sister is gone so I have an excuse to be lazy and not do my hair 🙈
Thanks for reading beauties!
