Baby Gardner- 28 weeks

Location change for the board since the nursery walls are painted, may change in the future

How far along? 28 weeks, officially in the third trimester
Total weight gain.  I thought it was 20lbs, but at my doctors appt he has a total of 17 lbs, so i'm going with that
Baby Development. Baby boy is growing rapidly, he's about 15 inches in length and about 2.5 lbs
Maternity Clothes? Mostly my old cloths, with a few maternity tanks and jeans thrown in. Can't wait for nice weather so I can bust out (hopefully not figuratively) my dresses and skirts
Stretch Marks? No signs yet
Sleep? Sleep is good, can't sleep in past 7, but I feel rested. Still wish I could sleep on my back though
Best Moment of the week? Nursery is painted and I love it!!! All the furniture is in, we just need to pick it up!! Also had our 28 week appt and everything is going perfectly. Still haven't heard how my glucose test went, we will see. Oh, and we got registered at Target and Babies R Us (holy overwhelming-why are there so many choices of bottles, seriously). Ross was such a trooper and didn't complain once, as long as he was in charge of the scanner-I am a lucky girl.
Symptoms? Still have the occasional sciatic pain in my butt, but it isn't bad. My tummy is very itchy these days as it is stretching.
Food cravings? Carbs, I can't get enough pita chips. Also sharp cheddar cheese, yummy!! My sister also got me hooked on this delicious planters peanut butter, banana, and granola tortilla wrap.
Miss anything? I was really craving a mojito this weekend, and I would still love to eat a turkey and cheese sandwich the size of my head.
Movement? Yep, lots of moving going on
Gender ? Little baby boy
Belly Button in or out?In, but working its way out, and very itchy
Goals for upcoming week? Getting some small details of the nursery pinned down, looking into pediatricians, and picking up the furniture. Also want to get better about posts, not enough time in the day
Looking Forward to?  Our babymoon!!! We leave in a week and a half for Scottsdale and i am so excited!!!
Thoughts?Feel a little less overwhelmed now that the registry is done and the room is painted. Now i am starting to have second thoughts about daycare. I wish I was in a position to take 6 months off, it just seems too early to take him to daycare at 2 1/2 months. I never thought I could be a stay at home mom, but the closer it gets, the more I question it, At least while he is an infant


  1. Fun, a babymoon!!!

    I'm a stay home working mom. Its fun but hard to work and be mom all day. If you end up having to go back to work while baby is an infant it will be great as long as you find a great daycare that you love! Luckily there is pleanty of time for the search :)

    1. I know it will be fine and a great thing for him, but holy crap, scary.
