28 week update!

No comments

We have entered our third trimester now and can’t believe it! It feels like just yesterday we found out we were expecting and managed to keep it a secret for more than a month before telling our families. And here we are… less than 3 months out from meeting our little man. And plenty to do before he arrives!


Baby size: A tropical coconut (like the one LW is carrying in this photo from when we went to St. Martin a few years back!)

Stretch marks: by some miracle, I still do not have any! (I am loving this Mama Bee Belly Butter!)

Sleep: My wedge pillow is the greatest thing ever invented… unless you ask Landon and he’d like to know how many pillows a pregnant woman needs exactly. If you’re me, it’s somewhere between 5 and 18. I mean, you need one for your head, maybe two. Then you need one to prop your feet up and another to go between your legs. You need the wedge and then I like one behind the wedge and one in front of me, too (especially when I don’t have Landon to cuddle with).

Maternity clothes: Let’s be honest… most days I do well to get out of my PJs. Work has been crazy so I’m basically up and on my computer before 8 AM. I do change before taking the dogs for a walk but it’s all lounge wear.

Gender:  BOY!

Weight Gain: 26 lbs

Movement: Lots of kicking this week and big ones, too. He’s definitely figuring out how little space he has in there as he continues to grow.

Best moment this week: getting a new car! It’s time to retire the Jeep and get something that actually has some side airbags to protect my little guy (and my sweet pups!).

Food cravings: PICKLES. I ate two entire jars of pickles this week and they were delicious.

Food Aversions:  nothing really at this point

Anything making you queasy or sick: the smell of tuna from a can (vom!)

Missing anything: Running and working out in general. Had another working out dream… did a lot of ab work and then put the treadmill on the highest incline at the fastest speed and was running so fast that the treadmill flipped over. I woke up and was still very pregnant and had clearly not been running on an incline (or anything flat either).

Symptoms: Had some hip/back pain this week and my feet are always sore in the mornings.


We have a couple baby showers happening this month so I am super excited for those (but mostly to see my family and Charlotte friends). And we’re headed to a Virginia Tech football game this month which will be nice. Probably our only one at Lane Stadium this year… maybe Baby W can go with us next year!
