28 Weeks




How far along? 28 Weeks 2 days
Total weight gain: 25 pounds 
Maternity clothes?  All maternity clothes...my new favorite thing to wear are maxi dresses.  Thank goodness for this beautiful spring weather we've been having!  
Stretch marks?  No...and I hope it stays that way!
Sleep: Sleeping well, but it takes so much energy to turn over now at night.
Best moment this week:  I had an associate at work, who I don't even know very well, tell me that I am the happiest pregnant woman she has ever been around.  She said she is amazed by the fact that I'm constantly smiling and that I don't complain like other pregnant women she has known.  I guess I just feel so incredibly blessed to finally be pregnant that it doesn't seem right to act miserable all the time...even though I'm totally exhausted with sore ankles/feet struggling to make it through a 9 hour work day.  :) 
Miss Anything?  Same as always...cold turkey sandwiches, my pre-pregnancy wardrobe, wine, and sleeping through the night without having to get up to go to the bathroom.
Movement:  Oh yeah!  She had some serious hiccups a few times this week!
Food cravings:   Brad picked up some Orange Dreamsicle bars at the grocery store this week, and ever since I ate one they are all I can think about!
Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nope!
Gender:  It's a GIRL...McKinley Kate 
Labor Signs:   No...thank goodness!
Symptoms:  Sore/swollen ankles and feet, heartburn all day every day, and peeing like crazy!!!
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy 
Looking forward to:  Our 3D/4D Ultrasound on Tuesday!
