Bumpdate :: 28 Weeks 5 Days

I think at this point, I am going to start counting down the weeks until Addison's arrival, instead of counting how many weeks I have been preggo.  SO, only 11 weeks, 2 days to go.  Holy crap!!  We have SO much to do in very little time... we still have to gut clean out our spare room {which is easily a two week project in itself}, paint, assemble furniture, sand and paint the rocker/glider, bust out the rest of our stuff from storage, and disinfect everything.  Boy oh boy, that's one hell of a to-do list.  OH, AND I need to get my Christmas shopping done ASAP because Lord knows I won't want to be out with all the crazies and 9 months preggo... that could be some ugly shit!

I have been feeling good, but very pregnant.  I have reentered that phase where I'd rather leave whatever I dropped on the floor than attempt to bend over and pick it up.  Lol.  Luckily, Jason AND Gwen are very helpful and don't mind doing that for me.  

I never heard back about my Glucose Test, which with my Dr., no news is good news.  Yay!  And I had a growth ultrasound two weeks ago, and baby girl is right on track.  She was 2.4 lbs.  And my fluids and her growth all looked good.  Hallelujah.  This news made Dr. P. happy although she still thinks I am not gaining enough weight and need more rest.  But at least it's an improvement.

How far along?
28 Weeks, 5 days.

Total weight gain?
As of my last appointment I was up to 14lbs.  At this point last pregnancy I had gained even less, so it is confusing that Dr. P. thinks it isn't that much.  But, she's the expert.

Maternity Clothes?
Even though we have had a very unwanted {at least by me} Indian Summer in these parts lately, I have been trying to stock up on a few sweaters and some jeans because I know that I am going to need them sooner than later.  I really am not a huge fan of Maternity clothes, but regular clothes just aren't cutting it anymore.

Sleep?
Still exhausted.  Haven't been making it through many nights without having to use the bathroom.  And Gwen for some reason has been waking up in the middle of the night quite often and ending up in bed with us... which usually doesn't bother me, but with my growing belly, we are certainly running out of room, fast.

Best Moment of the Week?
Best moment(s) of the past few weeks have been seeing Addison again and knowing that she is doing well.  Entering the third trimester, HELL YEAH!  Scoring a deal on a dresser and hutch for Addison's room {I am sucker for deals!}.  

Movement?
All day. Every day.  And night too.  I love it.

Food Cravings?
Pumpkin everything.  Cookie dough ice cream {although I have switched to Frozen Yogurt since I can't seem to live without}.  

Gender?
Girl!

Labor Signs?
A few Braxton Hicks-like feelings, but nothing major.

Belly Button?
Getting closer and closer to being flat again.

What I Miss?
Not having to pee every 5 minutes.  Being able to get comfortable.  After eating dinner, it is almost impossible for me to get comfortable, unless I am stuffing pillows all around myself and not moving once I find that sweet spot.

What I Am Looking Forward To? 
Getting Addison's room going, and done.  Any volunteers to just come and do it for me???  Puh-leeeeeasse?!?  

Milestones?
Hitting the third trimester is a big one for me.  This pregnancy is slowly overstaying it's welcome ;)
