28 Weeks!

How big is baby? 
He is about the size of an eggplant!

Total weight gain/loss:
I weighed at the doctor, where I'd actually lost a pound since my 24 week appointment. So total gain of 14 pounds so far.

Sleep: 
Waking up A LOT.  Usually to go to the bathroom. And often with a lot of pain in my hip on whichever side I slept on.  I also have trouble getting comfortable to fall asleep, especially after John leaves at 6:00 a.m.  As a result of not sleeping, I'm tired a lot!

Movement:
He moves a lot. Primarily at night and early morning and primarily on my right side.
Symptoms:
Braxton Hicks contractions A LOT. Nausea a lot as well.  Swollen ankles and calves. 

Food cravings: 
I don't think I've craved anything this week.

Food aversions: 
I'm not hungry much, but it's not any one food that I feel "eh" about. It's general food.

Gender: 
BOY

Belly Button in or out?
 In but getting kind of shallow!

What I miss:
Caffeine.  :)  The ability to sit comfortably for hours.  And my pretty, pretty shoes. Swollen ankles don't belong in stilettos!

What I am looking forward to: 
Meeting my little man. :)

Milestones: 
We had another meeting with the specialist this week which meant another ultrasound. He's growing big and strong! And my placenta has moved as we were hoping, so I know longer have an automatic C-section!  Unfortunately, my blood pressure has also been really high, so they're watching that more closely. I have my first non-stress test scheduled.  I also have to start seeing my OB every two weeks.
