28 weeks | Baby Sweets

Wednesday, January 23, 2013


How far along: 28 weeks. [28 with Ezra, 28 with Isaac]

How big is baby: Head of Chinese cabbage 14.8 inches and 2.25 pounds.

Weight gain/loss: For the third week, I’m holding out at 18lbs. 

Stretch marks: After two pregnancies, I somehow still don't have any.

Sleep: Again, the issues are primarily with the boys, opposed to a pregnant mama. Ezra is having a really hard time staying down and we’re having a really hard time getting him down without him coming to bed.

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Over the weekend I made a paleo-ish pizza and I’m mildly obsessed with them right now. I used goat cheese and all purpose gluten free flour, so while it’s friendly enough, it’s barely considered paleo. I’ll still take it though over the pig out and heartburn that would happen with regular pizza.

Movement: I’m feeling hourly movement now.

What I'm loving: That I’m actually starting to wrap my mind around the fact that we’ll be a family of 5, including a daughter.

Symptoms: I developed a linea negra again! So odd. With Isaac it started around 22w, but with Ezra I never got one. It’s faint, but it’s there! It never really bothered me, but I’m wondering with it only showing up later with this pregnancy if it will get as dark as it did with Isaac.

What I'm looking forward to: Gina dropped the M word on me. Maternity session, Saturday. This girl hasn’t even thought about clothes, so we’ll see how this pans out.

Best moment of the week: So far, finding out that I passed my 1 hour glucose test! With Ezra I failed and had to do the 3 hour, which was quite awful.

How I'm feeling: I’m doing a lot better. With a little more conscious thought, I’ve been able to put a lot, and I do mean a lot, of good food in my body. Additionally, I’ve been walking more and doing the stairs at work. Walking has the additional benefit of getting Shopkick points at Target and Macy’s, so it’s really a win/win. I like myself a lot more when I’m taking care of my body, pregnant or not and I just need to remember that.

Obviously those healthy food choices are working out because you look fab. I dropped the ball this pregnancy and strayed so far from my usual diet that I don't know if I'll ever make it back :)
