28 Week Bumpdate

Let's just take a minute and talk about how CRAZY it is that:
1.  I am 28 weeks already!
&
2.  Baby Girl is the size of a small head of cabbage!
Changes I've noticed:  I'm up 22 pounds and my belly is really stretched out.  I'm still fascinated by the fact that my belly button is beginning to turn inside out.  My prediction is that within a month it will be an outtie!  Even though I've still been lubing up with cocoa butter and coconut oil like it's my job, I noticed some more stretch marks on my hips (none on my tummy yet).    

How I've been feeling:  This week I'm feeling pretty good!  Since I've been consistently exercising, I feel like I have much more energy!  Moving around isn't AS bad, either I'm just learning to function with this big belly, or the exercise is helping a little in that department too (probably a little of both).

How I've been sleeping:  I've been sleeping through the night, just getting up REALLY early!  I guess it doesn't matter...as long as I'm waking up feeling well rested!  

Food and exercise:  I'm still going to the gym, and doing intervals at home.  Stephen and I took a walk over the weekend which was nice.  My plan for while I'm in NY is to walk whenever possible in order to stay active.  I think I will be able to convince my mom to come along with me.  I've also been eating well...I'm just trying to compensate because I know this will be my biggest challenge while we are away!

Maternity clothes:  After my doctors appointment on Monday, I went shopping and picked up a plain pink maternity t-shirt for my maternity photo shoot on Monday.  You know how I am a huge fan of leggings?  Well I couldn't hold off any longer, and finally bought a pair of maternity leggings...they basically rock!

Movement:  She kicks me so far off to the side that it tickles!  I didn't even know this was possible, I must be REALLY ticklish!  Baby is so crazy in there, some days are more active than others...but she is still a crazy little lady on an "inactive" day!
   
Best moment this past week:  On Monday we got to see her pretty little face!  Ahhhh, I could just stare at this picture ALL day!!!  We were laughing because her hands were always up by her head...just like Mommy!
I totally forgot to mention this last week, but we found an AMAZING day care option RIGHT by my job, that I feel 100% excited about!  A woman I work with recommended someone who runs a little day care out of her home!  I've been stressing over this, and feel so ridiculously relieved that we could check that off of our "to-do" list!  Everyone kept telling me that it would all come together, and they were right.  We are all registered, and ready to go!  The fact that I am so happy with this scenario, will help ease my mind when it is time to go back to work...but I don't even want to think about that just yet!  :)

Tomorrow morning we leave for our big trip.  Did I mention it is a road trip?  We are taking our time, taking lots of breaks...and yes I will be staying hydrated, I promise!  We have a lot planned...a blog friend sleepover, the baby shower, a christening, a bridal shower, maternity photos, and seeing lots and lots of friends and family!
I'm so excited for ALL of it!  Now it's time to get packing!

Happy "Bump" Day!!!!
