28 week pregnant update

Published June 8, 2014 by ivfdream

How far along? Week 28-7 months! Crazy!

Total weight gain: 22 pounds or 1 stone, 8lbs.

Started at 143 lbs. Am now 165 lbs and am 1 lb over recommended weight gain.

Really funny. I spent last Thursday complaining that my bump was not bump enough. The day after, it just grew! On Friday and in fact, all weekend, people have started to ask me about it. Saying things like “Do you have news?” or “When is it due?” or “Can I touch?”

At last, at 28 weeks, I look pregnant!

28 week bump

Maternity clothes? Yes. Was out on Friday night and many tops I had wore a few weeks before were looking not right. I am holding out. Trying not to buy new clothes till I have to!

Stretch marks?

Yes! Loads. Movements are getting bigger and stronger. DH and me watched a little performance last night. Really sticking my belly out! It moves a lot!

Best moment this week:
People starting to comment and ask me about it so I feel it is real! Though, these are wonderful moments,I am also getting anxious as it really is becoming real! 11 weeks or so left..

Miss anything? Running and wine. Still. 1

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off: On. No bloating of feet or swollen ankles.

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy this week. 🙂

Looking forward: Scan with consultant next week. Love seeing and hearing the updates and seeing hos baby has grown! Moving to a new house in a few weeks so cannot wait to be in!

Food cravings: No.

Anything making you queasy or sick? No sickness. Got a common cold today. Sniffle.

Gender: not finding out.

Symptoms: movements, tightening of vagina, heartburn, veins on chest to my breast darkening this week.

Labour signs: no! Far too soon.
