Welcome Tri Three {28 Weeks}

28 weeks, 5 days
Baby Bunny is the size of a Cabbage
Just realized I'm wearing the same shirt in this picture and the 25 week picture... 

  • I am officially in trimester THREE! :)
  • I'm starting to get out of breath really easily.  Whew.  I never thought that two flights of stairs could leave me so winded.  I am SO grateful that I am healthy though and lost so much weight before because I have no idea how I would survive the stairs with Baby Bunny and extra padding.
  • The car seat cover I decided to make is officially taking way longer than I thought.  I should have estimated better but oh well.  I already cut everything out and am making progress on it (slowly...).  I sure hope I love it when it is finished though because I am not making another! :)
  • Yesterday my big sewing project was fixing my Easter dress.  It is brand new and really cute but was too short.  It was close to being modest but I would not have felt comfortable.  So I added a ruffle to the bottom.  Stay tuned for our Easter picture!
  • I was working on making a baby registry.  Please don't go search for it yet online because it is still under major construction.  I need to go through and edit it.  I was making it online and had no idea which thing I would want so I just added everything to the list.  Pretty sure we don't need 4 pack and plays (or the like)... LoL!
  • My back has started hurting rather frequently.  I do back exercises every morning and am trying to walk regularly (seriously who knew walking could be so exhausting!).  And I love our heat pad.  That, my friends, equals back saver!
  • This probably sounds strange but I don't feel like I'm starving to death as often anymore.  I'm still eating/ snacking on a lot but I just don't feel hungry constantly.
  • We are still waiting to hear back from my glucose test results.  We are thinking everything went well--at least we are hoping!
  • {Knock on Wood} but my wedding ring and CTR ring still fit perfect.  Possibly have a little more room to spare.  And my feet seem to still be the same size.  I really don't think I have swollen very much.
  • I can now watch Baby Bunny move from the outside.  He moves, jabs, kicks, etc hard enough that I can watch it happen.  Casey has felt him karate chop me before and he was surprised at how hard and strong our little Baby Bunny is.  I'm not sure that I would say I'm used to it but kind of.

What back exercises do you do? My husband is 6' 6" and has back issues that run in the family. He's often sore and I tell him that he needs to strengthen the back muscles, but neither of us know how...

the swollen feet will come the last month, true to the fact that the last month has to be the most nasty to make labor worth the pain to want us to get that thing outta there.

As for the back aches - put three tennis balls in a sock and sleep on it. Does miracles.

Jonessa-- it is a list that my doctor gave me. I will have to see if it came from online and send you the link or type it up for you.

Brown eyed girl-- how do you sleep on tennis balls?? I didn't think I was supposed to sleep on my back?
