Week 28 Bumpdate

 Thank you all so much for your sweet comments last week about my glucose test! We passed! And I have to say, this appointment was by far our favorite yet. While waiting the hour to have my blood drawn, we got the best ultrasound ever {can I just say again how much I love my new doctor and all the staff at our practice?!}. The ultrasound tech spent so much time with us and was so happy and excited to show us every little detail of our little girl. She gave us tons of pictures and was even able to snap a shot of Caroline smiling!!!! It was probably one of the coolest moments to date for us, watching her play with her feet, suck her thumb, open her eyes and SMILE. She has so much personality now and I can’t wait to get her on the other side of my belly! We are so grateful for her health, a smooth pregnancy and our doctor!

How far along: 28 weeks! We are officially in our THIRD TRIMESTER! Has the time flown by or what? I have to say, I fall more and more in love with this baby girl each day so I can’t wait for these last few months to hurry up and pass!

Baby Size: An eggplant! Baby weighs 2.25 pounds and measures 14.8 inches from head to heel!

Weight gain: 21 pounds.

Maternity clothes: Just ordered two new spring dresses – one for my baby shower and another
for my maternity shoot next month! I had to order them in several sizes because who knows what my belly will look like by then and how things will fit.

Stretch marks: Still no sign! I think, anyway.

Sleep: Same. I have good nights and bad. Recently the leg cramps have gotten out of control, so I sleep so lightly in fear of overstretching my leg and bringing on a serious charlie horse. Poor Matt, he wakes up to me screaming and immediately starts trying to massage my leg while I laugh and cry in pain all at once.


And I also have to mention that Charlie has become so concerned with getting his quality time with his baby sister lately. When he isn’t camped out in her nursery, patrolling the fabric swatches, he sits next to the bed waiting for me to get in so he can jump up and lay his head on my belly and hug Caroline. I can not make this stuff up. He is the best big brother ever.

Gender: Girl!

Movement: We learned why my ligament along my right side is always hurting when I walk – Caroline is sitting on it so every time I walk she just bounces up and down on it – super ouch. 


We also learned she is still breech, which the doctor told us not to worry about yet {we just need her to flip by 35 weeks to avoid c-section} but we are definitely trying out old wives tales to get her moving. I’ve moved my headphones to the lower part of my belly in hopes her little ears will want to get closer to the music. Any other ideas for getting a baby to move out of the breech position?

Best moment this week: Gosh, so many! Date night with friends, having Matt’s parents in town for the day and shopping for nursery furniture!

Looking forward to: Valentine’s Day!

Food cravings:  My candy intake has slightly increased recently. I feel like I have little stashes of bite sized Reese cups and Twix bars everywhere – my jacket pockets, purse, desk drawer, car, etc.


Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing.


Labor Signs: Nope!


What I miss: Sleep!


Symptoms: Leg cramps, pregnancy insomnia and round ligament pains.

Nursery: This week we finished up a few small projects. I am hoping to have a post up soon on our progress.


Belly Button in or out? In, but getting more shallow each day.

Wedding rings on or off? On!

Mood: Unbelievably anxious to meet our girl.

Workouts: Only made it to the gym twice this week. Eek!


Prayer for Caroline: 


Lord Jesus, Thank You for helping me make it this far in my pregnancy, and for the way You will help me through these final months. Continue to teach me to be open to You and to trust in You. Protect me from complications and safeguard my health and Caroline’s health during this final trimester. Lead me and guide me as I prepare my birth plan. I praise Your holy name! Amen.


“Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:6-7
