{Pregnancy Diary} 28 Weeks, Third Trimester! 3

Thanks for your comments on yesterday’s post!  I loved hearing your thoughts. How far along? 28 weeks … officially in the third trimester! (Didn’t have a picture for 28 weeks, so I’m just using a picture I took last week.) Baby Size & Stats: Eggplant…between 1.5 and 2.5 pounds! How am I feeling?

{Pregnancy Diary} 26 Weeks 1

How far along? 26 weeks Baby Size & Stats: Eggplant … and maybe over 2 pounds!  Wow!  I have gained the most weight over the past couple weeks, so I think he is having a growth spurt. How am I feeling? Pretty great still, but it’s harder to move around these days.  Moving around in bed is so hard as is getting up to go to the bathroom a gazillion times per night.  And my belly still has so much growing to do!  I’ve had a little more acid reflux lately and my back is starting to hurt sometimes.  But, still, I can’t complain!  Food/Cravings: Bring me all the sweets! Weight: 17 pounds (and now for a headless picture of me working out in our […]
