How Far Along: 28 weeks, 12 weeks to go! (Hello Third Trimester!)
Size of baby: Baby S is about 15 inches long, the size of an eggplant or Chinese cabbage, and weighs just over 2 pounds.
Weight Gain/Loss: Started at 141.6 and today I measured at 153.4. I recently hit a growth spurt, which apparently is common around this time. I'm still on the small side on the growth chart.
Body Changes: My legs are getting stronger thanks to yoga and my Bradley exercises.
Gender: It's a GIRL!
Movement: She's moving every day, usually right when I wake up (and especially after I eat breakfast) and nighttime before bed. The other day I was taking a bath to soothe my aching back and my stomach jumped a couple times from some forceful kicks. I think it's just so cool!
Sleep: I usually fall asleep between 9 and 9:30, and wake up at 6ish. I also wake up once during the night to go pee. Yay.
What I'm looking forward to: My doctor's appointment tomorrow! I love getting updates and hearing the heartbeat. It's a special time for Brandon and I. :)
Cravings: Nothing in particular. Maybe chocolate!
Symptoms: Ligament pains, sciatic nerve pain, aching back... same as last week. Owie!
