Baby Bump Update

I have been so bad about posting my belly updates! So here is one from 26 weeks, when we officially announced the gender, and my most recent one is 28 weeks. I missed taking a photo of 27 weeks sorry!

How far along? 28 weeks, 1 day
Maternity clothes? Yes, mainly just maternity pants and bigger shirts. Al you women out there….maternity pants are SO comfortable, I may even wear them after baby is here. 😉
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: some nights are great, others not so much
Best moment this week: Since I am so far behind on my updates….we have had a lot great moments. We shared the gender with family and friends, had wonderful Thanksgivings, and officially began the 3rd trimester
Miss anything? Still missing gluten
Movement: Yep! I think it’s the best feeling in the world!
Food cravings: Steak, fish, and lots and lots of sweets!
Anything making you queasy or sick: The only thing that comes to mind right now is cottage cheese.
Have you started to show yet: Yes!
Gender: BOY! Little Man, as I like to call him. 🙂
Labor Signs: No thank goodness,
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On except at night I’ve been taking off all my rings.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Both.
Looking forward to: I start going to the midwife every two weeks now, so that means more times to listen to little man’s heartbeat! And I have my glucose challenge test….REALLY hoping that turns out ok.

Oh and one other thing that has happened that we are so excited for. Our basement is finished! Carpet was installed last week and we can officially hang out in there. The tv is mounted, we have slowly started to decorate, it is amazing to have the extra living space! Props to my amazing husband as its all his hard work. Blood, sweat, no tears but maybe tears of happiness when it was done! Here is a sneak peak of it! I will show you more photos later!
