28 Weeks - Hello, Third Trimester?!?

Date is supposed to be Oct. 25 - and we took that on the 21st... 2nd kid problems... :) 

How Far Along: 28 Weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Last time I was at the dr, the nurse said I had gained 7 lbs. Which is great because I had not gained any weight. Little Brother is growing!

Maternity Clothes: Why in the world would I wear anything different?

Best Moment This Week: Ummm, this past week has been a doozy... On the 23rd, Lucy was accidentally locked, not forgotten, in Mom's truck while we were at the beach. Thankfully she was calm and the police were able to get there fairly quickly to get her out. But we were ready to bust the window! Then, on the 25th, on the way to school Lucy and I hit a deer in my little honda and totaled it. :( Everybody has said, "Well, y'all are ok and that's all that matters." And yes, we are ok. Lucy was totally fine, I was totally fine, but was made to go to L&D to be monitored (Jack, you checked out perfectly! It was fun hearing your little heart beat for two hours). But the thing is, yes, we are fine - but our car was completely paid for and we weren't getting another for another year or so. So now, payments. Blah... So, best moment? Hanging with Lucy Wednesday and Sunday (today) afternoons. We had a mini photoshoot in downtown Montevallo today. And Halloween Fun! :)

Gender: Boy! We are thrilled to add this sweet, little boy to our family!

Movement: All the time... A sign for what's to come, I'm sure!

Food Cravings: Smaller meals more frequently and WATER!

Aversions: The brushing of the teeth - again. I can't take it. Also, some smells are getting to me. ugh...

What I Miss: Laying on my stomach. Not having heartburn. Not having sciatic nerve pain allllllllllllllllllll day.

Sleep: Propped up on lots of pillows and multiple potty breaks during the night.

What I'm Looking Forward To: We have another drs appointment next Monday for an ultrasound. Excited to see Jack and his growth! :) 

Baby's Jack's size: About the length of a kabocha squash
