28 Weeks

We are officially in the home stretch–3rd trimester! Less than 100 days away…83 days to be exact.

This week, baby is about 14 inches long, and ways a little over 2lbs. According to The Bump:

  • He’s starting to develop more fat, so his wrinkly skin will start to get smoother.
  • His lungs are mature enough that he’d probably survive if he was born now. Wow!

Now that we’re in the 3rd trimester, doctor visits are twice a month. They’re pretty uneventful these days, as they usually weigh me, take my blood pressure, and check the baby’s heartbeat. I’m contemplating getting a 4D ultrasound. I’m anxious to see what my pumpkin looks like! There is a myth that little girls look like their daddies, and little boys look like their mommies : )

Baby is moving like a champ! Sometimes it’s a bit unbearable lol. Trips to the bathroom have gone from once every hour, to about 3 times every hour. Night time is more eventful than day these days, as I wake up at least 5 times a night to go to the bathroom! I can’t image how it’s going to be when baby starts packing on more pounds.

Heartburn was ruining my meals. I checked with my doctor, and she suggested eating small meals throughout the day instead of 3 big meals. It has helped a lot now that snack throughout the day. Heartburn is no fun, especially when you’re trying to sleep!

Well, that’s all for now. Not much to tell here. I am super excited about the baby shower next month, and getting started on decorating the baby room!

Until next time.

xoxo, Christina
