How far along? 28 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 21 lbs.
Maternity clothes? I wish I could find some maternity jeans that don't slip down.
Stretch marks? still none. I've been lathering on the cocoa butter in hopes that I get lucky and don't have stretch marks. But I don't think I'll be so lucky.
Sleep: I've been sleeping great until I have to wake up to go pee and then my mind wonders and then I can't fall back asleep.
Best moment this week: Well I have a few funny stories for this week...this little girl is already stealing my jewelry. I noticed Thursday at about 9:00am that I'd lost an earring. I thought it might have fallen in my shirt or bra so I went to the restroom and looked and it was nowhere to be found. I looked in my office and couldn't find it so I figured, "oh well, it's gone." Well I got home and changed out of my jeans and my earring was stuck between my belly and the stretch band on my jeans. She wanted to wear my earrings!
Another story that is funny to me now that I look back on it. Last week I was sitting in my office and the cleaning lady came in to clean out my trash can. I recently changed offices so she seemed a little confused that I was in this new office. She walks in and asked me if I switched offices and then proceeds to ask, "You look different. Did you get fat or something?" I know my jaw hit the floor. Now you would have to see this lady to understand her tact. She has tattoos up and down her arms and a mouth full of gold teeth. But anyway, I just told her that I was pregnant so that explains the weight gain. I was floored....I couldn't believe she asked me that. Once she walked out of my office I just started laughing.
Movement: Yep, she rolls around in there a few times a day. I was at a Mardi Gras parade Saturday afternoon and a float came by with really loud music and I she just kept punching and kicking until they got farther away. I guess she didn't like the loud music.
Food cravings: Sweets, chocolate...thank goodness for Valentines candy!
Gender: a little miss priss (that apparently likes to wear earrings). We finally decided on a name. Abigail Marie. I never realized how difficult it was to name your kid. We went through hundreds of names and finally decided on Abigail.
Labor Signs: Still way to early for that...she still needs to grow a little.
Belly Button in or out? Very shallow. It's only a matter of time before it will be poking out!
What I miss: going a hours without having to pee.
What I am looking forward to: Doctor's appt next Thursday. We get another ultrasound to make sure the cyst is completely gone! I can't wait to see her again. And my mom is coming this time so I'm excited for her to get to see.
Weekly Wisdom: Life is great. I have a wonderful husband is doing so much more than I ever imagined for me and the baby during this pregnancy. He is just great.
Milestones: This is final stretch...in only a few months we will parents!
