So I PROMISE the Denver recap will be up by the end of the day, but for now let's back track. I completely forgot to do a little recap on my Little Man's 28th week! Pretend it's last Friday and I was a good blogger and posted this :)

How far along? 28 weeks=7 months=3rd trimester bay bay! This adventure train is movin right along

Baby's size? According to babycenter.com, my baby bean is just over 2 and a quarter pounds and about the size of a Chinese cabbage. The doctor told me he was measuring about 5 days behind (According to my 20 week u/s), so maybe he has caught up?

Weight Gain? Get ready for this....23 lbs, eeek!!! Mama has been cutting out unnecessary snacking and empty calorie beverages, so let's hope in 2 weeks they don't tell me I've gained another 7.5 lbs. I'm looking for a nice 5 please. According to the nurse, 7.5 lbs isn't what they wanna see in between visits? Puh-lease lady, I work out twice a day, I'm allotted some extra snacks. If Little T is fine, then what's the issue (hehe)

Stretch marks? Nada, and let's hope it stays that way. Mama wants to be able to wear those bikini's next summer w/out having some battle scars.

Belly button in or out? half of it is popped out and the other half is hanging in there

Sleep? Psh. Sleep? It's a total hit and miss, but mostly a miss. I can't seem to sleep more than 5-6 hours before waking up. I just get uncomfortable, I am very much looking forward to sleeping on my stomach again :)

Foods I am loving? Still my sweets. Actually in Denver while walking around, I'm pretty sure I was having those braxton hicks, so I wanted to go back to the hotel and rest....until I saw Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory :) Then everything was golden!

Foods I am hating? Nothing really I'm hating. I don't seem to turn my nose up at much these days

Best moment this week? As funny as it sounds, his stronger kicks are making my day! The other day he kicked me to where it actually hurt. I know I'll hate it soon, but for now, this is the only time in his life I give him permission to kick his mama

Movement? Like a champ! I am doing those 'kick counts' the doctors tell us pregnant women to do. I'm supposed to feel 10 kicks in an hour. I do them maybe twice a week because when I do count them, it's when I'm about to fall asleep and I fall asleep in the process hehe

Symptoms? Hunger and sleepiness. I give myself about 4 more weeks till I get that 'I'm done being pregnant' feeling

Gender? A rough n tough little man

What I miss? I still miss having an adult beverage when we go out to dinner and such. Oh and I miss running :( But I'd give it all up to have my healthy happy baby boy

What I'm looking forward to? Well since Denver has already happened, I'd have to say my baby classes and going on the stork tour of the maternity suites <--- that's right, they are called suites!! From pics and word of mouth, I've heard they are so nice, almost like a hotel! Weekly Wisdom: No matter what flavor they offer you for the 1 hour glucose test, it's gonna taste horrible. Milestone: 3rd trimester!! Emotions: I'm getting anxious! While in Denver, I started thinking about how I need to get little man's pediatrician and get him enrolled. Also need to get the decals I bought up on those walls. This weekend is supposed to be raining, so I'm thinking its a perfect time :) with the holidays coming, I know time is just going to fly so I need to make sure everything is in order. I'm also wanting to construct a 'get back into my bikini by Mexico' plan so I have one written out. I find the best way to stick to a consistent workout plan is to write it out on a calendar. Not only that, but I also want to start thinking about meals I can cook and freeze & then just bake once T man gets here. AHH, so much to do! Did I mention I need to get on my Christmas shopping ASAP as well?!

Oh you poor thing! That last month is tough. If you need anything, let me know. I'm always an open ear.

Sleeping through the night is hard for me, too. Once I wake up, it's usually hard for me to go back to sleep. I too am a stomach sleeper, so I feel ya on that. But it's worth it for our little ones! :)
