Bump Watch :: 28 Weeks

Merry Christmas!
In my Christmas pajama pants but you can't really tell in this picture.

How far along: 28 weeks

Size of Baby: 15 in & 2.25 lb

Fruit/vegetable comparison: Chinese cabbage (If you don't know what that is like I didn't click here.)
Total weight gain: 17 pounds 

Sleep: Definitely a lot better since I started taking Maalox before I fall asleep. My night time staples are that and tums.  With those I'm able to get a pretty normal nights sleep!

Movement: Maggie's actually a pretty mellow baby.  She really doesn't kick/punch that much and it's usually pretty light, just enough to let me know she's there!  I'll feel my bellow get really tight in certain areas some times.  I'm guessing that's some part of her pushing out but still not sure what it is!  She does bounce my belly a lot so Ryan can just watch her kick instead of having his hand on my belly.

Unglamorous body changes: Still just mainly heartburn but I think I'm getting that under control.  Other then that I really can't complain!  So far so good.  :)

Showing: My belly button is starting to get pretty flat.  I think I have a few more weeks before it's completely level with my stomach.

Food cravings: I really wanted some peanut butter blossom cookies for awhile, and I finally made them for Christmas.  Mmmm so good!  I also can't eat Chinese food anymore.  Blah!

What I miss: Not being so emotional all the time!  I think Ryan would say the same thing. Ha!

Milestones: She's starting to develop more fat, so her wrinkly skin will start to get smoother.  Her lungs are mature enough that she'd probably survive if she was born now. Wow!  (

Best moment this week: Everything checked out at the doctors appointment.  I forgot to mention that I had my glucose test last month and I past!  It really wasn't all that bad.  I did have to have a Rhogam shot because my blood is RH negative and Ryan is RH positive.  That HURT!  So glad that's over with.  Click here to learn more about why I had to have the shot.  I also had a 3D ultrasound that I'll post the pictures of soon!  She's so cute and totally looks like her daddy.

Looking forward to: Spending Christmas with the family.  They are all coming to Oklahoma and having them all  at our house.  This will be our last Christmas before little Maggie rocks our world.  :)  It's so surreal to think that we will have a 9 month old this time next year.  I can't wait!

We're almost ready for you little Maggie!

  1. You look so great! I hope you had a very Merry Christmas!
    PS- I have hardly worked out during my pregnancy- just walking mostly...I started doing light weights and leg workouts the last few weeks (once a week or so), but I honestly don't want to overdo it! : )


I'd love to hear from you!
