28 Weeks... made it to the 3rd trimester!!! :)

How Far Along: 28 Weeks

Size of baby: An eggplant, about 2.5 pounds and 16 inches long (crazy to think Graham was only 3 inches taller at birth!!)

Total Weight Gain: 138 about 14 pounds

Maternity Clothes: I ended up keeping the size 6 jeans I ordered, even though they are still big. I was hoping they would shrink in the wash, but I will probably grow into them in the next few months anyway.

Movement:  Hiccups, a few painful kicks (like she's hitting some internal organs and some kicks in the bladder- that's always fun)

Sleep: Sleeping good

What I miss: Not having sciatic pain!

Cravings: Oranges

Symptoms: Still having the sciatic pain. Now I feel it even when I'm sitting or laying down. I am hoping and praying she will move off of it, and it doesn't get worse. I am limping a lot of the time and I hate that!!

Best Moment This Week: Chad feeling her have the hiccups.

Best Comment of the Week: Nothing that sticks out.

What I'm looking forward to: Getting maternity pictures taken, really starting on her nursery and doing a few DIY crafts for her room.

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!
