28 Weeks!

Milestone! I am happy today.

Now that we've hit 28 weeks, I so glad BUT I've also decided that 28 weeeks won't cut it for our Finley. I'm reaching for the next small step, 30 weeks! Wishing my pregnancy away? Yes. I am. I guess you can say I never imagined it to be like this. I fully planned on enjoying pregnancy, glow and all, but that wasn't in the books for us. As long as we get our healthy baby thats all that matters. I love feeling her kick in there but the faster the time goes by, the better she will be prepared for life as an outside baby.


By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. 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.


In other news...
-My shower is a week away! I'm excited. It's about five minutes from our house and I plan to stay put and propped up the whole time.

-The corner shelf for Finley's room came in yesterday. I bet Joe ends up putting it up tonight or tomorrow. We will do our normal "nursery work" routine. I lay on the floor on my side and watch while he assembles. It's one of those easel shaped ones with shelves. Perfect for her piggy banks, pictures etc.

-Not sure if I mentioned already but he's already put everything else up in her room. Crib, dresser and glider. The hamper even came in and her crib bedding is on. The shelf is the last piece of furniture. Now we're just down to details and paint. My Mom is going to paint for me in three weeks. I just need the swatches to pick out the exact shades. I've been temped to take a picture of her room because it really looks nice already but vowed not to until the painting is done. I want to get a nice mirror too but that's hard with on-line shopping :/ I need to see it personally for size..

28 week survey


How far along? 28 weeks

Weight gain? 8 lbs

How big is baby? It's been three weeks since the last scan. We will find out on Monday. I'm guessing over 2lbs for sure though.

Maternity clothes? I obviously don't get dressed much but was lucky enough to get a bunch of cute stuff from a great friend of ours. I have leggings and maternity pants too and regular shirts are still fine. Doctor appt days are my only get dressed days.

Food cravings: not as bad actually. I love me some Chocolate and sweets still.

Labor Signs: Nope!

Belly Button in or out? Same as last week, in. I thought it may pop but maybe not? We'll see.

Stretch marks? Not yet

How are you feeling? Good. Other than the ankle aches from bed rest.

What I'm looking forward to: Seeing Finley (ultrasound) on Monday. My shower next weekend.

What I miss: Cleaning house...

Sleep: Really good lately. Loving the Snoogle.

Best moment this week: Getting good results on my liver enzymes and platelets at the hospital the other night. I was really worried with the elevated blood pressure and the results were a relief. I feel like I can breathe again now, for a while at least.

More updates coming on Tuesday, following Monday's MFM appointment.
