28 week Bumpdate!

This week: I'm officially in my third and FINAL trimester! Where is the time going?!?   We're starting to get some of the big baby stuff checked off and it feels AH-mazing!! I've been waiting to order the little details from Etsy and now I can start! Summer school also started this week and I'm pretending that it didn't.

How far along? 28 weeks! Officially in the third trimester!

Baby's size: Baby P is the size of a eggplant! Oh, that looks familiar? That's because The Bump repeats fruits and apparently doesn't have any sense of actual fruit comparisons.

Total weight gain: 5 pounds

Maternity clothes? Cotton dresses most of the time and pj pants & big tshirts the second I get home from work.

Stretch marks: Belly is stretch mark free!

Sleep: I'm still sharing the bed with these punks. Although, Jeff offered to set up the guest bed in the other room for him so that I can have more space. It was a nice gesture but I don't think I'm ready for that.  I think if he wasn't letting Rocky have my spot, it might be okay. I do think I have him thisclose to being on board for a king size bed. Until another monkey falls off the bed, this mama won't be getting much sleep.

Best moment this week: The construction of baby girl's room is officially DONE! Jeff did such an amazing job and did all of the work himself. I can't wait to show pictures when the details are finished. As soon as the trim was done, we set up the crib and the bedding, even though it should be washed first, but I just couldn't help it. Here's a teeny sneak peek..

The trim is done and the guard dog is on duty!

What I miss: Sleep. Being able to enjoy the summer heat. Being able to enjoy a summer beverage.

Movement: She seems to have moved down a bit or shifted positions since a lot of the movement I feel is really, really low.

Food cravings: Cold fruit, cold apple juice, slush, ice cream, the usuals.

Food aversions: Nothing new.

Gender: Baby girl!

Belly button - in or out? Still in, still creeping out.

Wedding rings - on or off? On

Symptoms: I'm actually feeling really good. I'm still getting tired much more easily and I think I'm coming down with a cold but really, not much to complain about.

Mood: I am just so in love with my sweet Jeffa and our little family. The best is yet to be. :)

Looking forward to: Getting the pretty little details ordered and organized for the nursery. Also loving that Jeff and I have some time off together this week!

  8. We JUST got a California King bed after sleeping in a Queen since we got married... I have to say it is SO worth it!!! Love the space, love that it's longer for my tall hubby, which means no feet sticking off the bottom. Great decision, just saying! ;)

  15. You look great first off!

    Second yea for third trimester

    Third love baby girls bedding!

  16. You look so amazing! And we are having similar sleep issues. I need more room (I spoon a pillow and um, am wider) and my husband elbows me in the face ALWAYS. His mom keeps saying she's sending us her extra cal king and while I'm not holding my breath (she doesn't typically follow through) I kind of am really hoping this is the one time she does. It's the worst! Oh and I agree on cold foods, it helps with the horrible heat!
