28 Week Update

I'm now 28 weeks along & Reese weighs about two & a quarter pounds & is 14.8 inches long at the size of a Chinese cabbage.

How am I feeling? This has been a very uncomfortable week for me; sometimes mentally & sometimes physically. For one, I've been super short-tempered & impatient. Since Cameron was out of daycare last week with Grammy & Auntie Erika, he had a couple of issues transitioning back to his usual routine like he normally does when Grammy's visit ends. Nothing big, just putting up a fight with things that we ask of him & acting tired & cranky. And a cranky child & an impatient, hormonal Mommy does not make a very good combination!

Physically I've been having a lot of pelvic pain & pressure when I walk & it has not been fun. We ordered a belly brace that had good ratings & it'll be coming this week so we'll see if that helps. I'm keeping my fingers crossed though!

Any new changes this week? Just the fact that I'm getting bigger & very quickly! I cannot tell you just how many people have commented at work this week that I'm suddenly "popping out." Since I wear scrubs it's harder to tell, but I guess not any more!!

Weight gain? 9.5 pounds.

But through all the discomforts, I'm thankful everyday to have a healthy pregnancy thus far! I already love my baby girl so much & I feel absolutely blessed to be carrying her... it's such a miracle!
