Sharing a bumpdate for Caitlin Houston at 28 weeks pregnant. Here is a summary of my symptoms, cravings, weight gain, and more!
Hello Third Trimester!
How far along: 28 weeks 4 days pregnant
Total weight gain: Probably somewhere around 23lbs
Baby Size: A large eggplant
Baby Facts: She can now blink her eyes – which may have the same beautiful lashes as her big sister. It’s possible she is able to see light from inside the womb.
Movement: Still thinking she is transverse because I can feel her move at the same time from both sides of my belly. Movements are sometimes slow, but mostly quick, and very strong!
Sleep: My Mom bought Annabelle a toddler bed and she has slept better here the last two weeks than she has in the last few months. That means – I’ve slept better here than I have in the last few months.
Cravings/Aversions: Nothing special lately.
Symptoms: Veins – If I don’t wear Spanx during the day, then I can’t walk by the evening because everything is so swollen. When I get back to Georgia I am going on a hunt for some other kinds of compression underwear or shorts that I can wear under my clothing. The Spanx can be seen through my pants as they squeeze my thighs – but a bigger size would only defeat the compression purposes of wearing them.
Hair – FINALLY it looks like the stuff all pregnant woman rave about. Shiny, thick, easy to work with.
Randoms: Last week someone told me I looked big… this week it’s been a lot of “Wow! There’s no way you’re 7 months pregnant!” I like those kind of people better.
Favorites: The way Annabelle pulls up my shirt and says, “Hello Baby Sister.”
Wondering? Here is my 28 week bump update with Annabelle.
