How far along: 28 Weeks
How big is baby: According to babycenter.com she is 2 1/4 lbs and about 15 inches long.
Total weight gain: 15 lbs (as of my appt on Tuesday) - I think this little girl is going to be bigger than Wyatt - she already seems squished to me and kills me with kicks to the rib at the same time she gives my bladder a left hook.
Last Dr's Appt: Tuesday. Now I start going every 2 weeks!
Maternity clothes: Yep, mostly. My running shorts and tees are still my standard uniform, although some days even the elastic waistbands feel a bit too confining.
How am I feeling: Eh..it has been another rough week. I have been having a lot of steady Braxton Hicks contractions, back aches and upper abdominal pain. However, the doc gave me a thorough once-over and ruled that it is just my children giving me hell - toting around Wyatt is to thank for the BH and Baby Girl is just growing quickly and running out of room so she is crowding my abdomen. I am just trying hard to rest when I can, not carry Wyatt as much and make sure to stay well hydrated. Staying hydrated is another issue though, as I literally go the bathroom every 30 minutes. Wyatt has seen the inside of TONS of public restrooms lately.
Mood Swings and Food Cravings: I am ready for remodel to be over (hopefully finished up this week) so I can get started on the baby's room. It is insane that I am already in my last trimester and not at all prepared-although I must admit that quite a few on-sale girlie clothes have been purchased - more on that later :).
Milestones: Is surviving a 100 degree July while going thru a remodel and having to find activities for an 18 month old to do out of the house and being pregnant, count?
What I'm looking forward to: Remodel being done, so I can start on Baby Girl's room. JB and I cancelled our NY trip after all the discomfort I have been having and realizing the travel would be hard on me. But my parents are still coming up in a couple weeks so we can at least get away for an evening to Dallas for dinner at our favorite seafood place. Also, I have decided to hire a cleaning team to come clean all the dust/remodel muck out of my house and can't wait to have a super clean abode. I normally would do this myself but the time and energy is just not there right now.
Preparations and decisions being made: Still no name. JB's vote is still for Annie, but I am just trying to get the remodel finished and then my focus can shift to the baby.
