Twenty Eight Weeks :)

I was Twenty Eight weeks yesterday! Here is what is going on this week:

Welcome to the third trimester! Moms-to-be who are at 28 weeks and beyond are known for their lack of sleep. Remember if you find yourself up in the middle of the night, do something relaxing. This is not the time to vacuum the house from top to bottom -- even though you might feel the urge to do that at some point. Read a book, drink chamomile tea, listen to soothing music. Then try to get back to bed and get some rest! Being in the third trimester also means much of your and baby’s anatomy are ready to go -- she's prepping for breathing, and your breasts already have colostrum, which is what baby will eat the first few days until your milk comes in. You’ll also start feeling more Braxton Hicks contractions as your body gets ready for labor. Baby will keep getting bigger -- and smarter -- after week 28, and other than that, she just needs a few more finishing touches.

Your baby's the size of an eggplant!
Putting on layers of fat, your baby now weighs in around 1.5 to 2.5 pounds and measures about 13.6 to 14.8 inches.

Your baby at 28 weeks
She's starting to develop more fat, so her wrinkly skin will start to get smoother.
Her lungs are mature enough that she'd probably survive if she was born now. Wow!

The baby shower was last Saturday! I had a lot of fun. We didn't have as many people show up as we thought but we got more than we expected! We now have almost everything we need! And we still have the baby shower in Tennessee to go! 
Tommy is gone all week (for the next four!) for work! :( I am really sad that he will miss so many doctor's appointments and things. He calls every day to check on us though! :)
I am hoping to get the room completely done by the end of the month! In all actuality it needs to be done before we leave for Tennessee!
We finally have internet at the house!!! :) That will make blogging and school work MUCH easier! I am so ready to get back into the blogging world!

Have a Happy Thursday! :)
