28 weeks, aka the 3rd trimester!
We are in the third trimester! Weight gained: 10.5 lbs Symptoms: The belly button pain has taken some time off and been replaced by a couple of those terrible leg cramps I had read about. Charlie horse in the middle of the night where you have to jump out of bed to flex your foot. Ouch! Still waking up once a night to pee. And several mini times a night I partially wake up to roll over, it's not so automatic anymore to heave yourself from side to side! And of course baby kicks, can see my stomach moving now. I heard someone can press their ear to the belly now and hear the heartbeat, but so not true, I can't even hear it with my stethoscope. Cravings: Still fruit. Probably ate a whole watermelon myself and several cartons of blueberries. Also burgers and icecream. We made one trip to Culvers and one to Smashburger. Mmmm. Baby needs that iron and calcium! ;) Birth prep: Just a couple more classes of our hypnobirthing class, it's been pretty good. And we are trying to make a decision about hiring a doula. Purchases: A shower dress for me and coming home outfit for baby boy Days left till my sister arrives: 2 Days left till our baby shower: 3 Days left till babymoon: 29 Days left till due date: 80 (give or take!) :)
