28 Weeks Pregnancy Update

28 Weeks

I'm in my 3rd Trimester! Woot woot!

Weight this week: 127.2 pounds

Measurement around waist: 30.5"

Measurement around belly: 33.5"

How big is baby? Baby weighs about 2.5 pounds and measures about 14-15 inches long.

Maternity Clothes: When my sisters and I took a trip to the cities, I made a stop at Destination Maternity. I got THREE pairs of jeans there (they were having a buy 2 get 1 free deal). They fit me better and are a lot more comfortable than the maternity jeans I got last time. I guess you get what you pay for!

Movement: The baby is moving quite a bit these days, especially when I sit down or go to bed. It can keep me up at night now! The kicks feel a lot more intense than I remember at this stage last time...

Cravings: Chocolate. Deep, dark chocolate. Also, when we were shopping in Home Depot, I got a craving for Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (I saw them at the checkout). I almost NEVER crave candy.

Aversions: Fast food. Once I start eating it it's not so bad, but the thought of it is gross to me.

Aches/Pains: My hips have been hurting so bad lately, especially when I've been working on our tile floor all day. I need to get into the chiropractor. I've had that bad pain in my side off and on as well, so I scheduled a doctor's appointment with the hope that they'll give me an ultrasound and tell me what's going on. If you think of me on December 1, please pray that my appointment goes well and that I get answers!

Sleep: I was just about to spring for a maternity pillow when I decided to just try shoving a pillow under my belly to support it. It really helped to relieve my back pain. So I might just opt for a wedge pillow.

Fitness: It feels really good to exercise/stretch. But if I know that I'm going to be doing a lot in a day I either opt for an easy workout or skip it.

And that's my 28 week pregnancy update!

Weeks 6-28


  1. During my pregnancy, it was very difficult for me to sleep at night. My husband bought me such a pillow http://medinstrum.com/best-pregnancy-pillow/. Only with the help of it, I was able to sleep well. It perfectly supports the tummy and this reduces stress from the back, neck, and even on feet.
