28 Weeks with Kellan

 
How far along:  28 weeks 5 days (in the picture)
 
Total Weight Gain/Loss
: 15 lbs

Maternity clothes: Maternity leggings and lots of over-sized t-shirts.
 
Stretch marks: No, but I can tell they're trying their hardest to form.  I slab on tubs and tubs of tummy butter and pray it continues to work!

Sleep: Still pretty good, although I really missed having Josh home two nights this week while he was away for work.  I just don't sleep as well when he's not home.  
 
Best moment last week: My mom was able to come to my doctor appointment this week since Josh was out of town and she got to see Little Man in a sonogram for the first time.  He's measuring at 2.2 lbs and even has a little chub on his cheeks!  Still too little to enter this world, but I'm thankful he's growing well. 
 
 
Movement: Oh yes, yes, and yes.  The hiccups are in full force.  He gets them at least 3 times a day, always when I'm trying to rest or go to sleep!  Little booger.
 
 Food cravings: I wish something sounded good... Mostly I hate eating these days.  I get full after a few bites because my stomach is officially shoved up into my ribs and then the food just keeps coming up for two or three hours after I've eaten.
 
Gender: BOY!!!  

Labor signs: This week contractions got a lot worse.  I am not sure if it's because my body is getting used to the medications, or what... But they caused some more cervical change, so much so that my doctor had to send me to maternal observations straight after my appointment to have a specialist take a look.  There is really nothing else we can do that we aren't already doing, so it's still all about prayer! 

Belly button - in or out? It's teetering on flat still.  If I'm really full the top part will stick out a little :)

What I miss:  This week I missed my hubby!  He takes such wonderful care of me and Callie and his company makes me happy, happy, happy... so when he's gone it's definitely a struggle for me. 

What I am looking forward to: My baby shower this month!
 
 Milestones:  HELLLLLLLO third and FINAL trimester!  WOO HOO!!!!!

Hi! I know you don't know who I am but we are in the same birth month group on the BabyBump app. I saw your picture on pinterest and that's how I found out about your blog. (Sorry if that sounds weird!) I just wanted to let you know that you are a huge inspiration to me! And if it weren't for your blog, I wouldn't have started mine. So, thank you. And congratulations on your little one on the way! :)

Aw, I am so glad that you've decided to start blogging! It is such a wonderful way to pass time and document memories. One of my favorite things to do is to go back and read posts from years ago. It's amazing to see your life and how much it changes/grows. And it totally doesn't sound weird, I am just happy you found it! Good luck with your new blog and that little growing baby!
