28 Weeks

How Far Along? 28 Weeks

Size of Baby:
Head of cauliflower (16 in, 2.5lbs)

:  Baby girl

Maternity Clothes:
Nothing really new to report here other than I am on the hunt for a couple dresses for some upcoming showers. I was something pretty, but I also don’t want to spend a bunch of money on something I can’t wear on a regular basis. Any great suggestions?

The bedding and curtains have been ordered! Of course everything takes 4-6 weeks to come in so I’ll just have to wait. I’m starting to think about what should go on the walls. I’m thinking a small collage of quotes and pictures, and then maybe a couple floating shelves on a different wall.

Oh yes! She is doing lots of “swimming” as Andy calls it. I had my 28 week appointment yesterday and they had a time trying to find her heartbeat because she was in such a weird position. Every time I think I know what position she is in she kicks me somewhere different and it all chances.

Some part of baby girl is definitely wedged in the right side of my ribs. If I sit too long I get really uncomfortable. Weirdly enough I’m most comfortable arching my back when I sit and sticking out my belly. Super attractive, I know, my husband is a lucky guy. ;) My hair is also growing really fast, which means I’m booking hair appointments way more frequently. Please excuse the gross roots in my picture.

I had a random night this week where I couldn’t shut my brain off, but then I go right back to sleeping through the night. Loving this and fingers are crossed that it lasts as long as possible.

Nothing in particular. I really was expecting to crave all kinds of crazy stuff during pregnancy, but I really haven’t.

What I Miss:
 I’m pretty happy at the moment.

Best Moment This Week:
Definitely my surprise baby shower. I’ll post more about it tomorrow, but my husband and his college roommates/their spouses threw me a surprise baby shower in my own house and I didn’t see it coming at all. So sweet! Probably the only surprise, other than Andy proposing, that I’ve ever liked.

Looking Forward To:
Easter and lots of baby related stuff this month. I have two showers for baby girl this month, a couple showers to attend for other people, and Andy and I will take our first couple baby classes. Parenthood here we come.


  1. How sweet that your husband and his college roommates and their spouses threw you a surprise baby shower!! So exciting that you have more to come, too! :)

  2. Aww that's so sweet they threw you a surprise shower. I can't wait to hear about it!

    Maybe a regular maxi dress for the upcoming showers? That way you can wear it afterwards?

  3. A surprise shower is awesome - I can't wait to read about it! Also, so cute that your hubby was in on it! Yay for all the things to look forward too - that's the best!

  4. Yay, mama! And your surprise shower...what a blessing!!! <3 xx
