28 Weeks!!!

Your Baby:

  • Continues to get a longer and fatter by the day. Shocking, I know. His or her weight has actually doubled in the past month alone, which is why you’ve probably gotten comments about “popping” recently.
  • Weight is around 2.5 pounds right now, which (if you’re like me, gazing in horror and your inside-out belly button and spidery stretch marks) might sound a little frightening, since the baby clearly needs to gain a LOT MORE WEIGHT before he or she is fully cooked, and oh my God, how in the world is anything bigger going to fit in there?


  • Are either feeling like this pregnancy will NEVER end, or that 12 more weeks is simply not nearly enough time to prepare. Or you might feel both ways, changing your mind one minute to the next.
  • Must move furniture and fold clothes and organize the linen closet and replace the bathroom vanity and finally get rid of that sooty stain on the marble fireplace and yes, DARLING, these are all essential tasks that MUST be completed before the baby gets here, DO NOT ARGUE WITH ME, NOW GO HANG UP SOME SHELVES.


Third trimester!  So excited!  Definitely nesting.  Big time.  I’m trying to get rid of a bunch of junk that has accumulated in the spare bedroom, which is soon to be Luke’s new room.  It’s kind of a catch all of all of those things that I don’t want to throw away but don’t have a need for right now.  But, this stuff is going to have to go one way or another.  I’m feeling good most of the time, just pretty exhausted by the time I get home from work and I get out of breath SO easily.  Just walking up the basement steps at my parent’s house, which I do about 10 times a day when I’m at work, or walking through the grocery store and I’m huffing and puffing!

That’s Luke on the left at 28 weeks and Dylan on the right at 28 weeks… way different!
