Bumpdates: Week 27-28

If you missed my previous bumpdates, you can check out weeks 5-12 hereweeks 13-14 hereweeks 15-16 hereweeks 17-18 hereweeks 19-20 hereweeks 21-22 hereweeks 23-24 here, and weeks 25-26 here! I've decided that at the very end of this, I'm going to make a book out of all of my weeks so Baby Cookie can look back and read through them someday. I also hope to make one giant blog post compiling all of my weeks together to see the progress.
How far along? 28 weeks

Size of baby?
27 weeks: cauliflower
28 weeks: eggplant

Total weight gain? One pound! Finally! Let's see if it stays there... I feel like it should now that Baby Cookie weighs over two pounds...

Gender? GIRL! You can read about it here

Maternity clothes? Yes - always! I ave a few of Dan's shirts that still fit me for sleeping, thank goodness, because I cannot stand tight fitting clothes when I'm in bed. Air Force PT shirts - Whatever works, right? 

Sleep? Dan was out of town for a couple nights at Boy Scout Camp last week, and I slept SO WELL then... I think it's because I had the entire king size bed to myself. I'm still having trouble falling asleep and staying asleep most nights, but I've been able to nap a little bit, which is helpful.

Work outs? At this point, I consider walking from one room to another or trying to blow dry my hair a workout. Painting my toenails leaves me completely out of breath.

Cravings? Nothing new here this time around!

Aversions? All the same. Heartburn is crazy when I eat tomatoes, but I did have spaghetti AND pizza over the weekend, and I didn't die.

Best moment of this week? We're heading to Missouri to see family and friends and have a baby shower for our little girl! We're actually already there...

Worst moment of this week? I went to the ER once again (well, I really go to Labor and Delivery every time now since I'm past 24 weeks) for fluids and kidney pain. They sent me home with a diagnosis of another kidney stone, so I took Flomax and Vicodin for a couple days... I slept well then.

Looking forward to? Our baby shower this weekend! :)



  1. I hope you have an awesome time at your baby shower!

  2. Oh, I SO remember the days when blow drying my hair was a workout, I think most of the time I would quit halfway through and go with "beach waves" instead... ;) You're getting so close!!

  3. I hope your baby shower is amazing!!! :)

  4. I think blow drying my hair is a workout and I'm NOT pregnant! Seriously though, my bathroom is SO hot and I sweat every time I dry my hair. (Or at least that's the excuse I use for air drying it these days.)

  5. Yay baby shower! Does it feel like your pregnancy is flying by? I feel like it has gone by so quickly, but you may feel differently considering you're the one housing a baby!

  6. Tomato products gave me the worst heart burn with my first! Luckily, it went away as soon as she was born! Hope you enjoy your baby shower!

  7. you are in the home stretch!

  8. Yay! I hope you have so much fun at your shower!

  9. Sorry about the kidney stone. Ouch!

  10. I mean seriously growing a baby should be considered a workout.
