28 Weeks!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 28 weeks

Size of baby: She is the size of a Chinese Cabbage (about 14.8 inches and 2 1/4 lbs.)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 16 lbs

Maternity Clothes: Still having to wear maternity jeans, and although I can still wear non-maternity tops it is definitely more comfortable to wear maternity tops!

Gender: It's a GIRL! Lucy Pearl Giles

Movement: All the time! :) It can get pretty exhausting sometimes...

Sleep: Sleep is so miserable right now... :( I can't seem to get comfortable and wake up at least 4 times to pee during the night now.

What I miss: Being able to bend over and not have to struggle to stand back up -- haha!

Cravings: Peaches! :)

Symptoms: hearburn/acid reflux still.

Baby Milestones: She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She's also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.

Best Moment this week: Entering the Third Trimester! :) And your daddy has started reading "I love you, Goodnight" to you every night before I go to sleep - so sweet!
