Gender – It’s a girl!
Movement – Either baby girl is a lot more active these days or I’m just starting to feel her more. Either way, it has been wonderful feeling her more!
Maternity clothes – Lots of cotton and clothes that stretch! I’ve been sweating profusely though, so massive pit stains have been my enemy. Just keeping it real folks. Amen for black.
Symptoms – Still dealing with heartburn and carpel tunnel.
Food cravings – I can’t say I was craving anything in particular last week. I ate out a lot due to the 4 day conference I attended, so even if I was craving things I wasn’t really able to pick my eats.
Workouts – Workouts were great last week despite my travel and walked as much as I could while at the conference.
Steps – Friday was a little rough, but I hit about 7,500 steps every other day. Getting 10K steps has been tough for me, but I still shoot for it.
Sleep – Some nights are awesome and other nights are horrible. The key has been having an empty bladder and a cold bedroom!
Thoughts and feelings – Last week was a really great week! The biggest change has been feeling the baby move throughout the day vs just before dinner. It’s fun feeling her kick and move while I’m in meetings during the day. They’re just little reminders that she’s there and growing, which I love!
I’m excited to start working on the nursery more these next few weeks. We actually found out our crib is going to arrive soon, which is incredibly exciting since we were originally told we’d have to wait 12-14 weeks. My mom is sewing all of the nursery bedding, so I can’t wait to be able to put the room together when she visits in July! It’ll just be so fun to see the room come together.
Other than that, Neal and I are just relaxing and enjoying the start of the summer. I have a feeling July will be nuts so it has been nice just taking things week by week for now! Here’s to a happy and healthy 28th week of pregnancy!
