I don't have a bump picture for ya'll today...I am on vacation afterall :) So for today, you just get a picture of the beautiful sunset over the bay we saw on our anniversary night!!
How far along: 28 weeks. 7 months. WOW!
Baby Size: eggplant!!!
Maternity clothes: nope, not yet, though I probably should. I feel like maybe I'm in the denial stage and am just stuffing myself into my regular clothes when I shouldn't be!! The hubs says he promises to tell me when I start looking like a stuffed sausage in my clothes ha-ha he's so kind <3
Stretch marks: I still say I see the VERY, VERY beginnings of some on my belly but the hubs still denies it....we'll see. I'm definitely still slathering on my Mama Bee Belly Butter though!!
Sleep: It hasn't been horrible...especially since I haven't been sleeping in my own bed. I sleep fairly well from about 11-5 then wake up and toss and turn, trying to get comfortable.
Gender: got me a lil' momma's boy growin' in my belly!!
Movement: Oh yeah!! I'm nervous though - at my last doctor's appointment they said starting at 28 weeks you have to be more aware of movements, etc. and if you notice no movement for a while it could be a problem. I feel like he doesn't move a ton so I'm nervous I might miss that I haven't felt movement for a bit and therefore, I'd miss that something was wrong. I'll definitely ask my doctor about this next week.
Looking forward to: not pregnancy related...but just enjoying the rest of our vacation the best we can!!!
Food cravings: still banana bread - seriously, I'm addicted (I even made a loaf before we left so I'd have some for this week!!!)
Anything making you queasy or sick: No, thank heavens!!!!!
Labor Signs: Zip. Zero. Zilch.
What I miss: running...putting on sneakers easily...not being sore 24/7
Symptoms: still sore, lower back achiness, oh and a new one...come 5am my butt/hips area sorta like falls asleep/cramps up - it's hard to explain. But it's super uncomfortable and painful!!
Nursery: nothing new since last week. Working on this more is definitely on our to-do list once we get home though.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Workouts: Luckily, we got free gym passes to a local gym with our condo rental so we've been hitting the gym in the mornings which has been so great!! I miss my gym but it's great to be able to continue working out even on vacation (especially since we've been splurging BIG time in the food department...I mean who can resist donuts, and ice cream, and French fries?!?!)
Things that suck: not being able to lay on my stomach to tan my back! ha-ha
Things that don't suck: being on vacation even if it's not the vacation of our dreams!
