27 + 28 week bump

I can’t believe I’m in my THIRD TRIMESTER already! Where does time go? And speaking of time flying by … I can NOT believe today is the first of November. Things are getting down to the wire with baby planning and preparing so I want need to make sure I have a goals list these next few months!

We’re to that point where I go to the doctors every other week which is also insane. I just want all this to slow down. I actually enjoy going to the doctors, maybe its because he has a special place in my heart. His dad actually delivered me and he has delivered many babies in my family as well. And married my aunt’s sister … so we’re tight. Next week is my glucose test, heard that stuff tastes awesome! I’ll have to resort back to my shot taking days … which seems like ages ago.

27+28weekbumpblog1Absolutely loving this fall weather though. I’m pretty sure my wardrobe is going to be resorting to sweaters and tank tops. Which is awesome. Because it is getting harder and harder to find things that work. I literally am down to like 4 options. I’m not stress’n about the weight gain though and just enjoy being pregnant, and worry about that after this babe is out. That is what we all should do. I mean, I never was a bikini model, lets be honest … I’m just trying to make good decisions and definitely am not resorting to the whole ‘eating for two’ thing, but sometimes I will find myself with a bad choice in hand … almost gone. Whoops. S*** happens right?! Gotta live.

I made sure to fill out the questions below last week when I was actually 27 weeks and 5 days haha, so pretty far into my 27th week …

Putting our crib together and of course more and more people feeling this crazy kicking baby! Been feeling some hiccups here and there and my grandma feeling the baby kick of course made my heart so happy.
Movement:
Seriously insane amounts of movements … I loooooove the kicks and rolls but getting a little concerned my baby is super hyper already … rut ro
Miss anything:
We went golf-carting this past weekend and it was so much fun. I did miss my ‘toughness’ and the fact that I have to take it somewhat easy. So not me.
Food cravings:
Well pumpkin pie of course … but that happens pregnant or not this time of year
Maternity Clothes: uhhhh yeah … with the bella band and having some longer tops to begin with I haven’t purchased a ton of maternity clothes, more so making mine work. Or trying to.

Nope

Yes

Third Trimester!!! So exciting!!! I can’t believe I’m to this point in my pregnancy. If anyone has any book recommendations, I would love for you to comment below with them. I really want to start reading up on some baby info while I’m in nesting mode FULL SWING. It has already begun!

How far along: 28 weeks, 1 day [today]
Sleep:
crazy dreams and potty breaks
Best moment this week:
We actually just picked up our dresser/changing table and put it in the nursery! It is all becoming so real and I’m so thankful to have that part done and moving onto the next thing on the to do list. It was so much harder than what I that it would be to find that perfect dresser that will grow with baby!
Movement:
Insane amount of movements, like this baby has a serious case of ADHD! And I love it … might be a different story once he or she is out!
Miss anything:
Riding horse
Food cravings:
No specific cravings … I just really enjoy food a lot more these days, hence the rounder face!
Maternity Clothes: Yes, and making some of my non-maternity clothes work. Mixing and matching. Excited for sweater weather to be here! I think tight tanks and sweaters are going to be my THANG.
Anything making you queasy or sick:
Nope!
Have you started to show yet:
Yes!
Gender prediction: Thinking baby M is a boy!
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: Out
Wedding rings on or off: On [I just forgot to put my rings on for the photos, whoops!]
Happy or Moody most of the time:
Happy
Looking forward to:
Again my first shower coming up on Sunday!!! Eeekkk!!!
How is Zoey handling the news:
She is one needy and loved dog. I tell Matthew all the time they are going to be joined at the hip when this babe comes because I’ll have to re-focus my attention on baby and Zoey will need lots of loving from dad for the first few weeks while we get settled.
