How far along: 28 1/2 Weeks
How I feel: I still feel pretty good. I have lots of frustrating or annoying symptoms, but I know what is to come, so I'm choosing to save most of my complaints for later.
Maternity clothes: I'm tired of them. That's all.
Sleep: If it weren't for Cora having strep throat and waking every 1 - 3 hours every night (for a week!) and now Brennan being sick and waking throughout the night, I'd be sleeping pretty well.
Best moment this week: Seeing the baby on an ultrasound! (I am starting my rounds of periodic ultrasounds for thrombophilia this week, and I will now get to see him grow little by little until I meet him face-to-face!!)
Movement: The little stinker knows when someone wants to feel him move. As soon as Jim or Brennan puts a hand on my belly to feel him, he stops moving. Every. Single. Time. Brennan has yet to feel him move.
Labor Signs: I can't tell if I was experiencing Braxton Hicks or just pressure yesterday. I am still not positive if I've ever experienced Braxton Hicks. I think I have, and I think that's what is happening.
Belly button in or out? Out
What I miss: I miss feeling close to Jim. I can't even hug him without bending at a weird angle to wrap my arms around his neck.
What I am looking forward to: I'm looking forward to having the nursery done and choosing a name for this little guy. And I am very much looking forward to seeing my three kids meet for the first time.
What I am NOT looking forward to: Getting even bigger than I am now.
