Pregnancy 2 - Weekly Update: 28

This post should have been published 11/24/17. Still catching up.

How far along? 28 weeks 

How much weight have you gained?  Not sure - No scale on vacation!
Any cravings? No specific cravings, but we had a DELICIOUS Thanksgiving meal (plus a lot of other yummy food all week. Some great ceviche!) and I had no problem eating a LOT! :)

What are you wearing? Got to wear some shorts and beach clothes while by the beach. Decided not to go for the super pregnant bikini look. 

How are you feeling? Symptoms? Pretty good, but doing lots of walking. My feet swelled up a couple evenings this week. Also, feeling tightness in my belly when I overdo it. Thanksgiving evening I was feeling stuffed with food and exhausted from being on my feet a lot that day.

Stretch marks? I can't really tell anymore because I can't even see the lower half of my belly. 

Belly button in or out? Still out. Not flattening out as I was expecting it to though. 

Sleep? Some days good, some days bad. Nice to have the white noise of the ocean though!

Best moment this week:  It's been a fun week in general!

Worst moment this week:  Definitely finding out some very sad news from a friend. They've been on my mind non-stop. Also, the road trip. Although it wasn't horrible, it still was not comfortable. 

Miss anything?  Speed. I felt so slow all week. We mostly walked everywhere and I was definitely the turtle at the end of the pack. 

Movement? A couple days I wasn't noticing much movement, which almost worried us, but I think we were just so active, it was a lot harder to notice them. But some nights they were still moving around like crazy,  so we're good!

Excited for anything? Being a hermit. This vacation was our last major plan before the babies arrive. We get to go home and hopefully just stay home and rest (although that never ends up actually happening). I'm excited to take down our Halloween decorations (never switched them out for Thanksgiving) and put up the Christmas ones. Holiday decorating is a nice nesting outlet. Also, I'm super excited to go pick out our Christmas tree from the forest this year!

How’s dad-to-be? Good. Still trying to feed me. He was also a lot more worried about the days of low movement than I was. He loves to be by the ocean.

How's sister-to-be? LOVING the beach. She calls it the giant sandbox and could stay there all day long. She's having so much fun with her aunts and cousins. Doesn't seem to mind sharing the attention with baby Zach, but I think things might be different when her sisters arrive. Also, she held baby Zach for the first time this trip and did a great job! She asked why his fingernails weren't painted though.
