How far along: 28 weeks and 2 days (Third trimester!!!!!!!!)
How big is Baby-A: Weighs about 2 and 1/4 pounds.
Total weight gain: 150 lbs. Total prego weight gain of 13 lbs at this point.
Sleep: I've resorted to benadryl when needed to get some sleep.
Best moment of the week: Hubby was looking at pictures from our vacation in Hawaii from three years ago, and he pointed out that I was currently wearing the same shorts from the picture. How I love my hubby!!! He sure knows how to lift the spirit of his bloated/fat feeling prego wife.
Food cravings: ANYTHING chocolate.
Nausea - Pretty much gone this week. Yeah!
Hunger - Hungry all the time. I eat more than hubby! It's kind of scary.
Heartburn - Whew...it's getting rough.
Nosebleeds - Calming down...but it's been really humid here with the rain so that might be helping.
Chest Pain - The midwife said it's just muscular but boy does it hurt. Laying flat on my back helps to relieve the pain, but since that is discouraged in the 3rd trimester, I shove a little pillow under one side so I'm not interfering with the flow of blood and nutrients to Baby-A.
Braxton Hicks - Mostly when I'm moving around or doing something like dishes. Once I hit full term at 37 weeks, I'm thinking about going around to everyone's house to do dishes just to kickstart my labor.
Clothes: most of my normal clothes don't fit and a few of my prego clothes got stained with ink when I washed Hubby's uniforms and didn't see the pen in one of the pockets. Boo.
Exercise: Walking mostly and doing a few "active" things like organizing the apartment and cleaning.
Movement: I'm starting to come to the conclusion that Baby-A kicks and moves just to get attention from her daddy. Once Hubby puts his hand on my belly, she calms down. It's the funniest thing.
