28 Weeks

Sorry gang... you get me in my jammies
this time around because I forgot to get
a pic before I changed.  The alternative,
my jogging suit, wasn't much better!  

How far along:  28 weeks

Size of baby:  eggplant
Clothes:  Maternity jeans, workout pants (not because I've been busy working out), regular and maternity shirts.  Let's face it... my wardrobe consists of about 10 things when I'm not pregnant and when I am things are even more limited.  Odds are if you've seen me in person 5 times I've had the same outfit on 4 of those times.  

Gender/Names:  Boy - Knox Haddon (names from John Knox and Charles Haddon Spurgeon)

Sleep:  Still sleeping well!  Yay!  I am starting to have some ligament pain, which makes me feel like I should be carrying my stomach separate from my body somehow.  

Movement:  Loving feeling you move!  I feel you still all around my bladder.  I still don't feel strong kicks very often but more just squirms.  I definitely feel you though and that's all I care about.  

Cravings:  I've been pretty good about keeping things low sodium these past couple weeks but it turns out chocolate is low in sodium so that hasn't changed!  I have been eating more fruit too.  I'm glad more fruit is starting to come into season to make that a little easier.  

Update:  My blood pressure yesterday was 130/80 so we are back to normal!  Yay!  I took my own machine to compare and got a reading higher than I've ever gotten at home so I know there's something to it being situational.  I'm VERY happy about that but I will still try to watch my sodium at least some because I don't want it to get high.  More good news... I passed my diabetes test and my thyroid has stayed in the normal range with my current medication.  Woohoo!  

The nursery decorating has been a little slow lately *cough cough Daddy Cough*.  We've still made a lot of progress though and I'm still loving your nursery.  Hopefully in the next few weeks I will be able to post pictures!
