28 weeks

28 weeks
How far along?ย 28 weeks – officially in the 3rd trimester!
Babyโ€™s size:ย around 14.8 inches long (compared to a chinese cabbage) and about 2.25 pounds. Apparently I had the wrong week’s info last week. I’ll get a better idea of the babies actual size when I have my ultrasound Monday the 11th!
Total weight gain:ย 20 pounds
Clothes: Long jersey maxi dress from Noah and Bowie. My sleeveless denim jacket is from Target.
Workouts โ€“ย Last week (April 28 โ€“ May 4):
  • 1 hour Barre class
  • 1 hour spin class
  • 30 minute spin class
  • 1 hour prenatal yoga
  • 1 hour spin class
Symptoms:ย I have new pain this week…pain in my low tailbone. I can’t sit straight it’s so bad. I have to sit sideways. Spinning is uncomfortable unless I lean forward and that’s getting harder because of my belly. I don’t want to give it up! I think I’m also getting the “pregnancy mask”. I have multiple dark spots on my cheeks that we’re there before and that’s a classic area to be affected during pregnancy. In other news, don’t have the linea nigra yet. According to this article, not having it may mean that I have plenty of folic acid!
Movement:ย Almost got my moving belly on video the other day but the baby stopped moving by the time I reached for my phone and started the video.
What Iโ€™m eating: Craving shrimp, crab cakes and calamari like crazy. Coconut on everything. Fruit: this week it was navel oranges, cherries, banana and blueberries. I made chicken enchiladas with black beans and served them up with lots of avocado that had lime juiced squeezed all over it and salsa of course…so yummy!
Drinking:ย Milk. Kombucha. Water.ย Unsweetened iced tea with lemon.ย Nepresso decaf coffee.
Looking forward to: My appointment for ultrasound, glucose and regular check up on Monday the 11th feels like it will never get here!!
