28 Weeks Pregnancy Update


The belly is growing! I have definitely noticed a difference the past 2 weeks, crazy!!

Baby’s Size: The baby’s weigh 2 1/4 pounds and are the size of large eggplants. The babies can now blink their eyes, have eye lashes, and might be able to see light that filters through the womb. (weird!!)

Total Weight Gain: Not sure, I go in next week for my glucose test (bleh) and a routine ultrasound so I’ll know where I’m at then!

Stretch Marks: None, thankfully. Still religiously using my belly cream morning and night!

Sleep: On and off. I move around a little more at night to get comfy and the last two nights had to get up and eat a snack…those babies sure are hungry! I’m becoming a good napper though, I guess I’m subconsciously training my body to sleep in shifts already!

Best Moment of the Week: Feeling more movement is fun, even if it is at 4am!

Miss Anything: Bending over comfortably….painting my toe nails is getting a little rough.  And of course wine, but I’m actually getting used to it and don’t miss it as much as a month ago!

Movement: Yep!

Cravings: Sugary cereals……captain crunch with berries has been my go-to. Yum!

Looking Forward To: Getting through the gluclose test next week and getting more organized with the nursery. I’ve ordered some cute pictures and a dresser and can’t wait to get the room set up!!

Workouts: I’ve been taking Paisley on some longer walks (about 30-35 minutes) since it’s been warmer out. The dog is definitely forcing me to keep my legs in shape which I like! I also did one of my Bar Method DVD’s at home and went to a Fit 4 Baby class. It’s nice to be in a class and not be the ONLY pregnant one! I do notice my energy can go up and down depending on the day, so I’m trying to listen to my body and rest when I need to.

I’m so thankful my pregnancy has been pretty great so far especially going into the third trimester. Hubby and I are taking a little “baby preparation” class at our hospital in a couple weeks, which I’m excited about….we both have NO idea how to swaddle a baby! Ha!

Hope everyone has a great Friday! Hooray for the weekend!!

When you were pregnant did you take any childbirth classes? What did you think?

Where did you look for inspiration to decorate your nursery?

    Awww, twins! I took a childbirth class when I was pregnant with my first, i was terrified, but it really did ease a lot of my fears.

    My 4th is now 9 months old, I can’t say enough amazing things about Aden & Anais swaddle blankets, they are the best!!! My daughter isn’t swaddled any longer for sleep, but she carts an A&A blanket with her everywhere, they are so so soft and get softer every time they get washed.

    Looking great as always, Jen! I checked out pinterest for nursery ideas, but ended up just decorating it my own way. I felt a bit overwhelmed after seeing so many different nurseries. Ha!

    I am 19 and don’t think I could ever handle a pregnancy. Not that I want to or anything. It seems hella scary to me. But kudos to you. I highly admire women who go through pregnancy and raise their children. x
