Happy New Year!
Today I am 28 weeks pregnant and officially in the third trimester! I can't believe we're here already...this is the home stretch!
How far along? 28 weeks!
Total weight gain/measurements: Oh, Christmas weight gain is never good...as of this morning I have now gained a total of 23lbs - that's almost the whole amount of weight I gained with Emilia!! I also took measurements this week - my waist is 31" and my belly is 38". I definitely think I am carrying lower this time!
Maternity clothes: My top in this outfit is not maternity but was always way too big for me, so it works! It's from GAP. The jeans are from ASOS Maternity though and I love the full panel bump band. These are the most comfortable to wear!
Stretch marks? Still no new ones. Recently I've been using ESPA Nourishing Body Oil which I'm loving!
Sleep: I have been waking up in the night with awful heartburn, almost gasping for breath and having to sit up and breathe. It's horrible! :( Aside from that I would say my sleep is going well though.
Best moment this week: It was my sister's 16th birthday on Wednesday - we had a yummy lunch in Electric & spent some quality time with family!
Miss anything? Being able to eat/drink whatever I want without worrying about hearburn or how my stomach will react :(
Movement: Tons - he is getting big!
Food cravings: This week it was grapes!
Anything making you queasy or sick? A lot of things, unfortunately! This pregnancy has made my stomach very sensitive and I had a few stomach pains/cramps this week which initially had me feeling a bit nervous. But baby is moving lots & normally and the cramping has since stopped so I think it must have been something I ate.
Labour signs: Nope!
Symptoms: Lots of heartburn, possible Braxton Hicks (I'm not sure if it was that or just cramps!).
Belly button in or out? I finally have an outie!! I was so excited when this happened, last pregnancy I waited & waited but it never popped - this time it did! I feel so special, ha ha.
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time? A mixture of both!
Looking forward to: A healthy & happy 2014! :)
