28 weeks!!!!!! Officially 12 more weeks to go!!!

28 week belly pictures are here :D

a few pictures taken before and after church on Sunday

My little monkey is growing!!!!

This past weekend was amazing!! I was just so tickled to get out of the house that I was on cloud nine the entire time. And it seems that another week has passed and now we are 28 weeks along! I cannot believe how time is just flying by. It is a little scary b/c I want to soak in as much of this pregnancy as possible! Plus, I start to freak out a bit when I realize there isn't much time left til Noah arrives. It makes me want to go out and buy tons of stuff to be prepared. However, even when I go out and shop I end up buying nothing!!!! Monday I went with my sis shopping and I just browsed some of the clothing sale items for Noah. And even though most of the clothes were on sale I just couldn't buy them. I kept second guessing the size and season fit and would end up talking myself out of the purchase. I envy those of you that have been able to jump on all the sale items for your babies for this fall. I just don't have the gumption to buy anything. I am also thinking that I should wait til my showers are done. I did get a taste for shopping for Noah though, there were so many cute things, so Todd is in for it when I do know the season and size!!! And shopping at regular stores was so hard b/c here I am all pg and there were so many cute new things in regular sizes!!! I am sure though that b/c I couldn't buy any of those clothes then that made them look more appealing. Any other time I would not have seen a thing I wanted to try on!!! And they already have bathing suits out!!!! I couldn't even fathom getting into a bathing suit!!!! SCARY!!!
I haven't done this in a while, so here is this week's round up!!

How far along: 28 weeks 2 days!

Total weight gain/loss: 28 lbs!!! UGGGG

Maternity clothes: They are a must!!

Stretch marks: None so far, crossing my fingers, toes and eyes that I don't get any...I already have enough!!!

Sleep: I get up atleast twice a night to tinkle so that makes sleeping all night hard. Also, I have good nights and bad nights of sleeping. Thankfully I am a stay at home wifey so I can nap during the day.

Best moment this week: Today was amazing, I sat and watched Noah moving all around in my belly! I was so happy I cried!

Movement: He moves so much at night, so we are in for it when he gets here!

Food cravings: Still chicken and fries...and now Lindor chocolate..YUM!!

Gender: Beautiful bouncing BOY!!!!!

Labor signs: None since the BH contractions from a few weeks ago.

Belly button in or out: Still in and I can't seem to picture it ever being out..but who knows!!

What I miss: Nothing really, I am enjoying all of this pregnancy even the not so fun parts. But a turkey sandwich would be soo good right now :D

What I am looking forward to: Getting my results from my Gestational diabetes test and hopefully passing it!!!

Weekly wisdom: I recently read online that when you first bring baby home that putting updates on the answering machine helps out alot. Basically, you update everyone on the machine and then if you lower the ringer and can't get EVERY call then they will know how Noah is doing. And if you are like me, sometimes you just don't feel like chatting on the I plan on doing just this!!!

Wow! Noah will be here soon! 12 weeks doesn't sound like long at all. Just try not to stress about the delivery, you'll be fine and I learned all the things I stressed about didn't even happen. Buying clothes can be tricky. Jakob is such a big boy that he is in 9 month stuff right now and headed to 12 month, so alot of clothes he got were not the right season. It is good to kinda wait till after your shower to buy stuff anyways, because you will get so much. I'm sure all your friends and family have been waiting a long time to buy baby gifts for you. How exciting!!!

It will go by so fast now! It seems like just yesterday I had 12 weeks left too! :) I got my dress at Belk's in the Jr. department. It was on clearance so I'm not sure if they would still have it. :)

I couldn't buy clothes for my baby either! What am I talking about? I still don't buy much. :-) We have been so blessed and gotten so many clothes since Drake has been born and I'm sure you will, too.
