How many weeks? 28 weeks. Hello third trimester! Counting down... 12 more weeks (or less)!
Baby's size? Baby is the size of an eggplant weighing in between 1.5 to 2.5 pounds and measuring somewhere between 13.6 and 14.8 inches.
Cool baby fact? My little lady is packing on the fat smoothing out her wrinkly skin and creating those lovely pinchable cheeks. She can also blink her pretty little eyes and bat beautiful eyelashes as well as see the light that filters through from the outside world into my womb.
Pink or blue? Team Pink!
Symptoms? Shortness of breath and trouble sleeping are the devilish duo in my life right now. The sleep part is really difficult considering I'm in training classes for 2 weeks... so my concentration is well below par and I've had many "Mom-nesia" moments already. Thankfully, everyone is willing to give the pregnant lady some slack!
The best thing? Most of my aches and pains have subsided which makes day to day activities easier. But that may be partly due to a doting husband who is helping pick up a needy toddler more as well as donate the use of his recliner and heating pad! True love, amiright?!
The most difficult thing? Ugh... I am slightly anemic which in the grand scheme of things isn't the worst thing just annoying. I have to take an iron supplement every day until delivery and make sure I take some Vitamin C too. The problem is that the iron makes me feel funny and icky... because I TOTALLY needed more uncomfortableness in my life right now.
Looking forward to? Nesting. I already love organizing and getting stuff clean (though it doesn't happen often with a toddler around), but there is something special about getting your home ready for a new baby. Plus purging all the unnecessary junk is cathartic... lugging it to Goodwill is another matter.
