Pregnancy #2 Update 28 Weeks

Tuesday, February 23, 2016

How far along? 28 weeks (as of Saturday) 
Total weight gain: 6-7 pounds
Maternity clothes? No
Stretch marks? I don't see any, but Chanse informed me that I have one on the side of my stomach. I still can't see it though, so I think it's just a vein but who knows ha!
Sleep: Not the best, but I blame my brain that won't shut down.
Best moment this week: Listening to our little guy's strong and steady heartbeat. To me it is the most comforting sound in the world. :) 
Miss anything? I miss not having so many Braxton Hicks contractions. They are really starting to happen a lot. 
Movement:  Yep! I've said this a lot, but he moves quite a bit more than Rose did and I really love it!
Food cravings: Chips and salsa, as well as my regular cravings for salads and chocolate ha. Oh and I was really wanting a donut and had never tried an apple fritter. I got one from the Provo Bakery and it was divine! SO good!
Anything making you queasy or sick: This week my Cafe Rio made me sick and it made me so sad! I am trying to figure out what it was. Oh and popcorn, it makes me sick too. :( All the good stuff, darn it!
Gender: BOY!
Labor signs: Nope
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks contractions, pelvic floor pain, some pressure and tightness in my groin and leg. All fun pregnancy things. ;) I actually went into have my groin and leg looked at because of my sister's situation with her blood clot. I was told that blood flow was slow in my leg and to watch it closely, but that there was no clot. :) 
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: Super happy that I am due in 3 months! Moody when I am tired ha!
Looking forward to: Meeting this little guy and seeing what he looks like! I am convinced he will look just like his daddy too, but I am still holding out for hope that he will look like me. I'd love to claim at least one of my children. ;) 
Exercise: Still chugging along. ;) I actually had a doctor this week tell me that you should never run during pregnant and I almost had to laugh at him. It is so funny how every other doctor I have ever visited has told me that running is great to continue if you did it before pregnancy and that the main thing is to listen to your body. Guess there will always be a differing of opinions.
