Hi friends. I’ve completely dropped the ball on blogging the past few weeks but I didn’t want to go too long without an update on Baby Zin. Things have been a bit crazy around here. We painted our entire apartment within the past three weeks and this week I caught a cold. Womp. But Tommy and I have a nice little weekend getaway planned for this weekend (last before baby!) so that should be a nice relaxing treat after being so incredibly busy for the last month or so. Let’s see how things have been going with the pregnancy though shall we?
Size of the Baby: At 28 weeks baby was the size of an eggplant – 14.8 inches and 2.2 pounds!
Total Weight Gain: I am officially up 20 pounds but honestly I’m still feeling pretty good about it. The weight gain has been about a pound a week and has seemed to gone mostly just to my belly. I do get more tired more easily with the extra weight but that’s to be expected.
Gender: A baby boy! I’m still debating on sharing his name or not but we definitely have one picked!
Symptoms: Heel and foot pain has got to be the most prominent symptom so far. My heels actually go numb a lot of the time if I’m on them too much. Tommy gave me the best foot massage though which helped A LOT.
I haven’t been sleeping that well. I wake up 2-3 times a night to pee and sometimes don’t go back to sleep for about an hour. It isn’t too bad though. I have a little bit of calf cramping in the middle of the night if I’m on my feet a lot, but that isn’t too bad either. Nothing to complain about and for that I am so thankful!
I also have definitely been getting a lot more emotional lately. I know that the 3rd trimester brings with it more hormonal changes and I think that’s what is to blame. I was also very stressed these past two weeks because I really wanted to get all the painting done and it was a lot of work.
Oh and I’ve also been having braxton hicks contractions every once in a while. I definitely get them more if I’m too active and don’t rest enough so I’ve been trying to be more careful about that.
Workouts: Nope but honestly I don’t really feel bad because I’ve been pretty decently active throughout the day.
Cravings: Still having chocolate every single night after dinner and still loving it.
Doctor’s Appointments: I’m officially in the part of pregnancy where I’m going to the doctor every two weeks. I did my gestational diabetes test at my last appointment and passed! Woohoo!
Nursery: We have gotten a ton of stuff done in the nursery and I’m so happy about it. I can’t wait to show you guys but I decided to wait until it’s all setup and just do a nursery tour rather than include anymore pictures in the bumpdates.
Tommy is: working up a storm to help get the house in order for baby and getting so excited to meet our little babe.
Looking forward to: our little getaway this weekend!
Best Moments: Finishing painting finally and getting some things for the nursery!
