28 Weeks Update


28 Weeks Update — A Modern Mrs.
We are officially in the third trimester! As of today the countdown reads 11 weeks and 6 days left to go {give or take, depending on little miss}, and I was telling J he needs to use my camera next time. Clearly these cell phone shots aren't blog-worthy.

I didn't get any feedback from you guys on last week's update, so I'm assuming I satisfied whatever wonderings you may have had, but I feel like I'm probably leaving some things out, no? If you're happy, I'm happy, but if I am leaving something out, let me know in the comments! On with what's happening this week:

Stretch Marks: I feel like I'm looking a little "patchy," but there aren't any that definitely scream "You've got stretch marks, lady!" I guess I should be happy, but I'm a lot older than I was when I was pregnant with L, and I just have this feeling I won't be so lucky this time around....

Belly Button: Mostly flat, but the center has a little tiny point that leads me to believe it may pop out sometime over the next few weeks. We shall see!

Linea Nigra: {That's the dark line down the front of your belly.} Still no, and still thanking God.

Clothes: Some of them are getting a little tight. I'm definitely going to need a new bra soon, and one of the pairs of maternity shorts I have are feeling a little snug in the waist. My shirts are still covering my belly, which is good, but I'm going to be keeping my eyes peeled for sales for skirts, dresses, etc. If you see any maternity sales going down, please let me know! {Tweet me // Facebook me}

Heartburn: I'm typing this and hoping it doesn't jinx me, but the heartburn has been on the DL lately. I'm enjoying the break, because c'mon, raging heartburn is loved by no one.

Do we have a middle name? Still nope. I brought it up again last night, but J seems to think he might find a name he likes better between now and then, so we may not have one till she comes out.

This past week: Still trying to take it easy in the sense that I'm not doing a lot of running around or moving of things, but I've been crazy busy with the blog, and that's dandy. I've had some ideas for posts, been playing around with the possibility of adding new code to post footers, the sidebar, etc., but we'll see what happens. I'm leery of adding too much because I don't want to slow down the site, but I feel like there are some things that would be good to have. Any thoughts you have on the matter would be most helpful! /wink.

Nursery Progress: Still at a standstill. Two Saturdays from now is my baby shower, so this section will probably remain unchanged until then.

Overall: I'm still having back pain and hip issues, but they aren't getting worse, so I'm not concerned. We have a new development, though, and that's Sciatica. Yep, little E gets resting on that nerve and my whole right side is off limits. Can't stand on it, sit on it, lay on it, nothing. The best I can do is turn to my left and eventually she moves. I have my next OB appointment on Monday, which is when I'll be having my glucose test, and I'm not looking forward to that. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Coming Up: This is L's last full week of school, and I've got an itch to make some changes in her room. I keep telling myself it can wait, but I guess nesting takes over and I must do it now. I can't and won't because we have E's room to finish, but I'm compiling a list of things I want to do to L's room, and I'll be doing a blog post on that sometime in the near future. {DIY projects are back on my mind!}
