28 Weeks Pregnant

We are officially in our 3rd trimester! That's right-- we are 28 weeks pregnant today 8/6/2014.

Baby Bump says the baby is the size of a chinese cabbage (whatever that is LOL) They estimate he is about 14.8" long and about 2.25lb. I believe this child is a tank-- he is very active-- always on the go!

We have our glucose test today at 4pm. I am SO EXCITED. (Sarcasm implied!) I am just praying that we pass. These things make me so darn nervous because I do not want to do that darn 3 hour!

We have 9-12 weeks left until we get to meet Mr. Lucas Grady. That's only 63-84 days. It's getting close, folks! 

I washed all of his clothes, socks, bibs, and blankets yesterday and got them all put away in his room... not that his room is close to being done... at all, haha! But his clothes are put away :)

Now, for the weekly questions:

How far along? 28 weeks.
Total Weight Gain? 10 pounds so far :)
Maternity Clothes? Not really. Maxi dresses and maxi skirts :)
Stretch Marks? I have some from both pregnancies already!
Sleep:  I'm starting to get really uncomfortable while sleeping. I'm having to move from one side to the other constantly because it starts hurting really bad if I sleep too long on one side.
Best Moment of This Week: Just knowing he's getting bigger and that we hit the 3rd trimester! It's a good feeling!
Miss Anything? I have been wanting to move a lot of things around lately since we are doing construction in our house and I can't. It's frustrating at times, but worth it!
Movement: Yes! Tons.
Food Cravings: Crenos salads with ranch and lots of crackers!
Anything Make You Queasy or Sick? Just certain smells-- can't handle it!
Gender: BOY!!
Labor Signs: I'd sure hope not! :)
Symptoms: Peeing constantly, feeling movement, back pain :)
Belly Button In or Out? She's in between anymore LOL
Wedding rings on or off? Mostly off, sadly!
Happy or Moody this Week?  I have been very happy this week!! :)
Looking Forward To: Ready to get this glucose test over with and PASS IT IN JESUS NAME!! 

Cheers to 28 weeks.. on to 29 weeks!!

I’m so excited for you, Alyssa! I can only imagine how pressured you were while taking the glucose exam. How was it, by the way? I hope everything's doing fine. Anyway, with regard to your back pain, I suggest you consult a chiropractor. Chiropractic therapy won’t just help relieve your pain, it will also help adjust your body for your coming delivery. Take care! :)
