28 Weeks

Size of Baby: Almost 16 inches tall and about 2.5 pounds.

Home I'm Feeling: My back really hurts me a lot now. I made an appointment to see a chiropractor on Thursday and I'm hoping it will help. I just can't do a ton before my back hurts. This morning I went to Target then Fresh Market with the boys and after lunch I had to lay on my bed with a heating pad because my back was hurting from those two little errands.

Cravings/Appetite: Nothing new. I'm not usually hungry for dinner so sometimes I just skip it.
Clothes: Flowy and loose tend to be my go-to's these days, along with my Lou and Grey sweatpants. After all of the weekend sales, I officially own them in every color and plan on living in them over the next several months.

Movement: This little guy has been moving around a little more. I can tell he's growing and he likes to move at night the most. He woke me up in the middle of the night one night this week because it felt like he was rolling around and doing flips.

Changes in Me: I'm beginning to slow down. I can't go like I usually do because when I do, I start to get contractions and my back really hurts. It's a hard time of the year to try to take it easy since there's always so much to get done.
Baby Purchases: I bought some Kickee Pants coveralls during the sales. Four little preemie solid colored, tiny, soft pj's. I had a few preemie coveralls with Bennett and I loved the coveralls. I kept him in them during the day because they felt like outfits vs the footies which are more pajama-like. I know that probably seems so silly but I just like getting everyone up and dressed for the day, even tiny newborns, and the coveralls seem like a good "outfit" for a newborn to change into for the day.

Favorite Moment This Week: My back really can't handle bending over all day to pick messes off the floor that my boys leave. I have always said that I feel like I am constantly bending over to pick up toys, empty snack wrappers, bowls, cups, etc off the ground but now that I'm 7 months pregnant, I just can't care about my floors being as tidy and picked up as I'd like for them to be. I told Scott over the weekend that I'm just going to have to leave it for him to take care of. While I was crawling in bed last night, I said to Scott "by the way there's a ton of stuff on the floor in our room and the kitchen." He said "I saw it! Don't worry, I was planning to get it all picked up before I go to bed. By the way, it would AMAZE you how much stuff I've already picked up off the floor today." I smiled and laughed and told him it actually wouldn't amaze me since that's what I've been spending my life doing these last 4.5 years. It just really tickled me. I guess he's never noticed the mess since I always pick it up right away but yep, there's a lot of it. A lot.
Looking Forward To: My chiropractor appointment later this week. I'm a little nervous about it too. I know women go to the chiropractor all throughout their pregnancy but I never have so it scares me a tiny bit. I'm in so much pain though and I still have a few months to go so I've got to try to see if this will help since I know it's only going to get worse. Fingers crossed it works and that as soon as I get adjusted my water doesn't break. That's the fear I have! Haha!!
