28 Weeks

28 weeks is this week! Woohoo! And I'm in Alabama right now!
These weeks are flying by and I'm starting to get stressed that I don't have things ready, or close to being ready, and have like barely anything for our boy haha. Things will come together...but still I'm starting to get stressed.
28 weeks, 3 days.

How Far Along: 28 weeks, 4 days. 3rd trimester! So apparently I've been in my 3rd trimester since May 27! Awesome!
Size of the Baby: Small cabbage, 2.9 lbs, 17 inches long! Baby is growing!
Maternity Clothes: It rocks.
Stretch marks: No...
Weight gain/loss: 20 lbs.
Sleep: Just a very sore back and going to the bathroom a couple of times in the middle of the night. It is alright.
Best Moment of the Week: Well, yesterday, I swear my son worked out like crazy in my belly because I counted over 100 MOVES!!! ONE HUNDRED kicks/punches/moves within like 20 minutes! I got an active boy haha. But it was awesome and I was like oh my gosh what is he doing? Maybe he had the hiccups? I don't really know. But it felt like he was punching me in the same place for at least 70 of those movements.
Movement: See above and YES I feel like I've never felt him more often. He is getting stronger too! It is so funny to watch your belly move on its own!
Symptoms: Leg cramps, right leg numbness after I've been sitting for a bit (better be sciatica), back pain, heartburn...think that is basically it.
Food Cravings: Hmmm...Milky Ways...and it doesn't help Omi bought me a whole bag of them. Way to tempt me! Also, cherry tomatoes are amazing and egg salad on 'Everything' bagels...
Gender: BOY!!!
Belly Button in or out: So last week I said I guess my belly button will stick out within a month. Well it looks the same as last week so I'm guessing it will stay in for awhile and maybe come out later on? I think I just didn't notice that it was a little shallower. Anyways, if this is weirding out, I'm sorry, no wait I'm not haha.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope...
Labor Signs: Nope thank goodness!
Wedding ring on or off: On.
What I miss: No back pain!! If I didn't have back pain that would be AWESOME!!! Life would be much easier.
What I am looking forward to: Being ready to meet our son and meeting him!
Nursery: We got our crib bedding but I'm in Alabama so I can't check it out. When I get back I'll see what it looks like with our white crib furniture. If it is good to go, hopefully I'll pick out a paint color next week and then start painting! I really need to find a rocking chair soon and then can work on the little things for the room... diaper pail, things to hang on the wall, maybe a basket to hold books, that kind of thing.
Emotions: Pretty good I'd say?
Stupid things I have done: Can't think of anything now.

And say hello to the view I've been seeing for the past couple months! Yep, he always, always chooses the right side! He's so funny. When I went for my 28 week appointment last week the doctor said his bum and back was there where you see it sticking out and his head was down. So his bum and back love my right side ha.

Happy weekend! 
What are you up to?
