This is a day late but I just got back from my weekend in Pittsburgh. We had my baby shower on Sunday afternoon and all I can say is that Baby S is the most loved little guy out there. Our friends and family really outdid themselves and were more than generous. Here is this week's survey and I will include some bump pictures and some shower pics at the end!
How Far Along: 28 weeks
Gender: still a boy!
Size of baby: 17 in 2.9 lbs.
Total Weight Gained: no weigh in for the 28 week. will have to catch everyone up as soon as I get the doctor's word.
Maternity Clothes: this week I wore a ton of my sundresses from last year which was nice. Now that the cold front/rain has moved in I have been having to wear Tom's sweats!
Movement: Much more consistent. I was driving back from Pittsburgh and he was kicking the crap out of me. Today he has decided to wedge himself up under my ribs so I am totally uncomfortable. It's all worth it though.
Sleep: I didn't get nearly enough sleep in Pittsburgh. The first night I just couldn't get comfortable. The next night my mom's idiot neighbors decided to have a party at 3 am that woke me up until I had to call the cops to come break it up. Just a lot of running around all weekend without sleep caught up. Today I crashed hard and slept for 2 hours. Now I feel out of it and hope to get a good nights sleep tonight.
What I miss: People not looking at me trying to decide if I am pregnant or just fat. When I have form fitting shirts on it it's pretty obvious there is a baby in there but at the gym I have worn looser tees and I swear I get strange looks but soon enough the belly will be too big even for tees!
Cravings: Still fruit which is really good I guess but I also have been craving Minutemaid Light lemonade which is a lot harder to come by than one would think. Luckily I had my fix and found a place to get it so I should be okay for awhile.
Aversions: Currently I have no need or want for meat in my life. That sounds weird but it just grosses me out, espcially having to cook it. I would rather just eat pasta or something quick and easy. Even when we have gone out I have pretty much avoided meat entries, I'm sure the doctor will give me an earful about my protein intake.
Symptoms: Lots of movement, a few contractions and a few other things that are probably TMI to share on the internet, haha!
Best Moment this Week: Having my shower with my wonderful friends and family.
