How far along: 28 weeks 6 days
Baby H2.0: Weighs 1kg and is 37.6 cm from crown to rump, and is about the size of a Eggplant. As we learnt from last week she is actually measuring a little bit further along than this and is in the 80th percentile.
Gender: Baby Hunt 2.0 is a GIRL!!!
Weight gain:+ 5 kg since we found out, hating my weight gain but need to stop eating so much ice cream. What do I expect!
Sleep: Another alright week of sleep in the bag, I have developed a slight habit of staying up super late so I need to stop that.
Symptoms: The groin pain isnt too bad this week and my back seems to be doing pretty well. I feel like she may have dropped into a better position.
Cravings / Aversions: I am all about ice cream at the moment even though it doesn’t seem to be agreeing with me, can you develop lactose intolerance during pregnancy?
Maternity Clothes: Still trying to stretch my clothes to their limit, I just cant justify buying new clothes that I will only wear for the next few weeks.
Exercise: We had a heat wave this week so there was barely any moving of any kind.
Mood: Excited and still nesting, I don’t feel prepared even though we have just about everything we need.
Wedding rings: Off – side note my engagement ring broke and I still haven’t fixed it which is why I am not wearing any rings at the moment
Belly Button in or out: It’s currently an innie, was last pregnancy as well so I am assuming it will stay the same.
Movement: She scared me a few times this week with some quiet moments but I have learnt that if she is quiet at night just to jump in the shower and that gets her moving.
What I miss: Feeling like myself!
Preeclampsia: I have been noticing a bit of swelling in my feet each night when I get home from work, I hope that is nothing.
Best moment of the week: Feeling her kick, there is honestly nothing better. We are also officially in the last trimester woo not long to go now!
Worst moment of the week: I walked into the door frame and dislocated and broke my baby toe! I can barely walk and the whole side of my foot is black and blue.
What I am looking forward to: My doctors appointment next Wednesday, I just want to make sure everything is going as planned.
There you have the week 28 recap, it has been a bit of a long week what with the heat wave and my baby toe issue. Glad to see the weekend, thankfully it’s a long weekend this one so I am going to relax and possibly head on up to my father’s house to spend the day in the pool trying to get all this baby weight off my back and hips.
Did you have to suffer through a heat wave whilst pregnant too?
