28 week bumpdate!

How far along: 28 weeks!

Total weight gain: scale is telling me 20 pounds this morning

Sleep: sleeping as well as I can with a basketball under my shirt... aka.... not good.
Once I get to sleep it's not terrible. It's getting to sleep that is not good.

Gender: We are Team Green, So we'll find out in September!

Names: I think our baby has a name. Or two actually.
For now we officially have a name for a boy and a girl.
We'll see if they stick around!

Stretch marks: I have a couple of spots at the tops of old stretch marks that look
ready to grow... but we'll see!

Best moment this week: I have been talking to Tyler a lot about what is in Mama's belly.
He will rub my belly and say, "oh baby". It really melts my heart.
Also I have been teaching our two names to Tyler and it's so cute to hear him say them.
When I ask Tyler if he is going to have a brother or a sister, he will say, "sister" every time!
(Maybe he just likes that word better?)

Movement: Lots and lots of somersaults!

Food cravings: corn on the cob, Cesar salad, peanut butter cookies, bananas

Labor signs:
Not even close.

Belly button - innie or outie: in

What are you looking forward to this week: 4th of July!
Hopefully we can find somewhere good to watch fireworks!

Health: Really feeling pretty well over all. This week I had a hard time drinking water because
we have soda in the house! I need to stay away and keep chugging water!
I can still see my ankle bones, but my feet are swelling and I know it has to do with my
water intake this week.

My maternity jeans are getting snug. As in, too tight for comfort.
If summer doesn't kick in so I can wear shorts more,
I'm going to have to start wearing my jeans from Tyler that are too big.


  1. You are glowing!! How much fun to be team green! I'm voting girl :)

  2. I used to struggle sometimes when it came to drinking lots of water. THEN something great happened! I bought some fresh lemons and added the slices to my water and BINGO! I love to drink water now. It's so delicious and refreshing. I do still have a glass of unsweetened iced tea, mostly with dinner just about everyday.

    Have a fab week!

  3. Enjoying reading your updates, thanks for sharing! I'm voting girl, can't wait to hear your names!
