How far along? 28 weeks and 0 days
Baby’s Size: 15 inches (about the length of a churro!)
Baby’s Weight: 2-3 pounds
Development: Baby's eyes now have color, although the color may change until 9 months after birth. He now has eyelashes, his brain is developing rapidly, and he's putting on fat.
Weight gain/loss: This morning, my scale told me I gained 4 pounds this week, but it's showing that I'm 2 pounds heavier than yesterday at the doctor. I'm not sure I believe that. I've gained just over 20 pounds total.
Best moment this week? Today was my baby shower! I got tons of clothes, a travel system, play mat, hamper, mobile, receiving blankets, baby monitor, and other various goodies!
Symptoms: Stuffy nose, sneezing (terrible allergies), back pain, back spasms, leg cramps, dry skin, daily baby kicks, and ugly swollen ankles
Food cravings/aversions: I made some delicious mint chocolate chip cookies and now that's all I want to eat.
What I'm looking forward to: Spring Break! One more week to go!
Milestones: I'm turning in my maternity leave request this week. I can't believe how fast this is all going!
What my baby and I look like this week:
