3rd Trimester!

How Far Along? 28 weeks

Total Weight Gained/Loss? 18 pounds - WOW! I'm starting to feel this extra weight. I always tell Chris I just don't know how really heavy people do it! The stomach already gets in the way of everything!!

Maternity Clothes: Heck yeah! Don't think my size 1 & 3 jeans are gonna fit for a loooooong time! Unless I get lucky and the baby weight just melts off. *fingers crossed*

Sleep: Some days better than others. Starting to get a little uncomfortable.

Best Moment of the Week: Finally starting to feel better after my nasty cold that lasted 2 weeks! Working on her room yesterday with Lil Pea's Auntie Mel, Auntie Liv and Nana (my mom). Cousin Cody even came. Should have taken a pic of him napping in her flowery crib. lol

Movement: Oh yeah, all the time!! She is such an active strong lil girl!

Food Craving: Nope

Food aversions: Nothing in particular

Morning sickness: Gone since 16 weeks thankfully!!!

Gender: It is a GIRL!

Labor Signs: No

Belly Button: Definitely changing every day but still an innie. And still sporting the belly ring. ;-)

Stretch Marks: none (whispered with fingers crossed)

Wedding rings: still on

Exercise: Ughhhh! None the past two weeks while sick. Even missed yoga! But so excited for yoga again Tuesday! Then the "BIG" birthday Wednesday but maybe a nice walk Thursday and Friday.

What I miss: Oh I know this one! NOT having little "leakages" every time I sneeze or cough. Sooooooooooooo annoying!! Really caught me off guard since I have never even had any bladder problems. And being sick the past 2 weeks I am totally over it! lol

What I'm looking forward to: 3D/4D ultrasound scheduled for February 20th! Also maternity pics scheduled for the 28th! Can't wait!

Weekly Wisdom: Well my weekly "surprise" wisdom has to do with more leakage. Let me explain.
Friday I got my weekly emails of what baby and my body are up to this week. One from Baby Center and another one from The Bump.
This is the one from the Bump -
You're 28 weeks pregnant!
Week 28
Sprung a leak? Those thick, yellow drips (called colostrum), are the precursor to breast milk. Try a pair of cotton breast pads and make sure to change them whenever they get damp to avoid the dreaded chafe. Still milk-free? That's normal too -- some women just don't leak.

I read that this morning thinking, sucks for those women. But would also be a nice reassurance that I won't end up being in the 3% of women who for medical reasons can't breast feed.

So I was about to jump into the shower and was standing in the closet talking to Chris while taking off my top and bra and suddenly did a double take. My bra had two little stains on each cup. LEAKAGE!! I never even felt it!! Of course Chris started laughing & goes now you pee your paints & have leaky boobs!! hahahaha
So I'm now ready to supply baby girl with what she needs when she is ready to arrive! :-)
Guess I better get out those breast pads my friend Katrina gave me already.

Favorite item bought this week: Just bought a few decorative things for her room such as paint for the clouds we sponged and also some butterflies, birds, ladybugs, ect. I still have to put up.

We also have our check up with my OB and the Glucose test this Thursday. *fingers crossed* I pass 1st time! Wednesday is my 30th B-day (yikes) and we are having some close friends and family over Saturday to celebrate. Originally before we got PG we were going to possibly go to Vegas for my 30th but now that will have to wait. Lil Pea is better than any b-day, gift or trip anyways. Plus I've decided I'm gonna stay in my 20's for another year or two so we can go to Vegas next year. ;-)

Saturday my SIL, good friend Olivia and my Mom came over so we could put up the tree and also sponge some clouds onto baby girls walls. I have never done clouds before but my SIL has. The clouds actually weren't as hard as we thought they would be, BUT for anyone who is doing them you do not need to add as much glaze to the white paint as they say. We had to do 5 coats and they still came out really light. But I like them. They look more natural and not bright white and fake. The tree, now that was quite some hard work to get up! But I think we did a great job. Came out perfect! Put a few new pics in her Bedroom Album.

All in all things are still going great and I still can't believe we are in the 3rd and last trimester!! It's crazy how in the beginning it seems like full term is so far away. Yet how quickly the months fly by!! She will be here before we know it!! And NO, we still have not picked out a name. And NO we are NOT just saying that because we really do and are keeping it a secret. We do have 4 names we are considering but we honestly just still aren't sure which we like for her. Like I've said before, I wouldn't be surprised if we don't decide until the moment we meet her. I think then we will know.


  1. I can't even believe you are already in the 3rd trimester! That's funny about the leakage- I picked up my 5 month old nephew once, and my Mom told me "One day you will pick him up, or hear him cry, and you will leak"- Yea, can't wait for that! (Ha) I lOVE the nursery- so the tree is a decal? Where did you get it from?

  2. My DH always tells me stop complaining when I talk about how heavy my belly is. "Some men in my office are 14 months pregnant and they still wear the same pants from high school!"
    Ugh, how do they do it?

  3. WOW!! 3rd trimester already! That's crazy! This is flying by! It's so exciting as I've been following you for a while! I think before you became pregnant! This is awesome! Your the only blog I've been following since before a pregnancy. That's always so neat. To be there with you the entire ride! Sort of! :o)

    The nursery is beautiful! Your doing a great job! Leaking boobs! He's funny! Too bad they can't go through it huh?? In anycase, I agree with you, the leaking would be a comforting thing for me too!

    You had mentioned in your previous post that with your last pregnancy you had the implantation bleeding...Ok, sorry if this is to personal and if it is, I understand you not wanting to post it to me, but, what was that like? Was it all blood or a clearish pinkish stuff? I just experienced something I never had before and am kind of wondering as this is the point in my cycle that implantation would be occuring! :O) How awesome would this be!
    Anyway, any info would be great and LOVING the nursery!

  4. I am in love with your nursery!! Although I do not have the artistic talent it takes to make something like that, I hope ours is even just a fraction as beautiful as yours is!

    Also, yes I saved the pic first for the award and then posted it.

  5. I was waiting for a Birthday post but havent seen one from you yet so, so I don't miss the opportunity,
    Happy Birthday!!!
    I hope you have a wonderful birthday!
