28 Weeks Pregnancy Update
Baby boy weighs 2 1/4 pounds, about the size of a large eggplant, and measures 14.8 inches from the top of his head to his heels.
He can open and close his eyes, which now sport lashes. This movement is more of a reflexive blink than a deliberate opening and closing.
My weight gain:
Anxious and nervous for his arrival.
Pretty much buckled down with scheduled snacks and knowing when nausea would strike otherwise.
Cheese. I especially love string cheese and keep it stocked in the fridge.
Things of Note:
I visited the doctor and am measuring at 29 inches. At 28 weeks they said I should be somewhere around that number so it looks like everything is going well. Right now this little guy is head up and in two weeks when I go back, if he’s still head up then I’ll have to do some exercises to flip him so he’s head down from 30 weeks until he’s due. I already did some research online about forward leaning inversion to get them to flip. I tried it and lasted about 10 seconds but if I can get up to 30 seconds then I’ll be good to go!
Sleeping with a body pillow has helped immensely. It makes a kind of cocoon in the bed and when I crawl in, it just feels so safe and soft. I’m working on the review but so far double-thumbs up for that!
I bought a dress that I think will be perfect for the maternity shoot. I am going to wait and reveal it with the photos which I am super hoping turn out well! Anybody else take maternity pictures before their bun was born? I’ve love to hear any tips for keeping it modest and flattering!
