28 week bumpdate

How far along
28 weeks!!!
How did 7 months come so quickly?

Best moment this week?
I'm going to go with this month since it's been 4 weeks since the last update:

Baby's movements are so much stronger and you can finally feel most of those movements on the outside. It's pretty fun to let Kev and others feel a good kick or head butt. 

Had my glucose test and everything is all good to go. I wasn't to nervous about it but I guess you never really know.

We got our bumper & bedskirt in the mail yesterday and it's so cute!!!

Maternity Clothes?
Yes, very much so!

Stretch Marks?
No not yet. I hope with all the growing I've done already that they would have showed up by now if I was going to get any.

 Yep! Although there really hasn't been much of a schedule established. Baby is moving whenever he/she wanted to and I haven't really seemed to eat, drink, or do anything to initiate movement.
Kev talking to BabyO seems to help at times! Guess baby know daddy already :)

 Food cravings?
Nothing in particular.

What I miss:
I've actually been craving beer last few days.
Mainly because it's been a bit stressful at work and an ice cold beer just sounds so good.
Also, sushi but I think I can manage refrain for another 3 months.

Lack of sleep for the most part.
Had some random break outs which has been oh so fun to deal with.

 Been going to yoga once a week still and I love it!
Seriously pregnant or not I suggest you try out yoga.
If you are pregnant it helps in so many ways: gets the blood flowing, relaxes you, creates some space as things get a bit more crowded, and helps tones muscles to help prepare you for child birth!

Gender Prediction?
 Honestly, lately I've been feeling like "BabyO" is a boy but I wonder if that is because we've had more people telling us they think it's a boy.  That feeling will probably change though since I've been going back and forh this whole time.

 Has not been great.
Trying to get comfy has been a challenge, but even then there are times I just can't stay asleep.

What I'm looking forward to?
 I'm ready for our vacation we are taking next week! It'll be nice to get away for a little bit and it'll probably be the last vacation for a little bit.

I'm SO excited for our baby showers to happen. We have two in the first couple weeks of December.

As weird as it might sound I am kind of excited for our child birth classes. I think it's mainly because it means we are so close to actually meeting our little bugger.

I'm not sure if we get another ultra sound or not but I hope so! I would love to see BabyO again :)

Wisdom or other thoughts?
 Honestly I don't have much overall. The experience of pregnancy just brings a plethora of thoughts and feelings.
It's been a very exciting process but I realized I've been very blessed to have a very easy pregnancy and I can only wish that others are as blessed/lucky.
However, whether you experience a lot of negative symptoms (nausea, heartburn, etc) or not pregnancy is a lot changes to get use to and experience in what feels like a very short amount of time.
I'm blessed to experience the miracle of bearing a child but there are moments when the changes become overwhelming and I'm ready to physically feel like my old self. I know emotionally I've never go back to how I used to feel about things because I love BabyO more than anything! 

Happy Friday!
