Cameron Bump Date: 28 weeks!

How far along: 28 weeks - Officially in the 3rd trimester now - 12 weeks to go!

Baby is the size of a: Tropical coconut, rollerblade (according to my Ovia Pregnancy app)
Eggplant according to the typical fruit comparisons. Went to the doctor yesterday and he is still measuring a little over a week ahead of his due date. I think it's starting to feel cramped in there for my big boy!

Pink shirt is 27 weeks vs. black shirt is 28 weeks
(even though he looks bigger in the pink because I think that color just highlights the bump!)
Sleep: About the same - still getting enough most nights, but I am starting to feel more sluggish in general from carrying around some extra weight.

Total Weight Gain: 16 lbs total at 7 months pregnant. Within the "normal" range, but definitely feeling the extra weight I'm carrying around. Still thinking it's mostly belly/boobs weight gain though. (maybe wishful thinking!)

Stretch Marks:  None yet.

Innie or Outie:  I check my belly button every morning and night - still an innie!

Symptoms:  OH THE HEARTBURN!!!!!!!! Take it away, Jesus!

Luckily, no swelling yet. My back and tummy are just a little stiff/sore on a more regular basis now, but still nothing awful. I probably complain more than I should, because I have been really blessed with a healthy pregnancy. So thankful for that!

Movement: All the time. Makes me happy that he's so active. He's getting so big and running out of room that the elbow jabs are starting to get uncomfortable at times though. We are on the verge of it feeling alien-like.

Miss anything?:  I have totally slacked on working out since I've been farther along in my pregnancy. I do miss a good gym session! I'm sure it would make me feel better too if I could make it to the gym.

Maternity Clothes: Still rocking all my regular clothes. The need for maternity pants is REAL though! Even the hairband trick for my pants is wearing out it's welcome right now. Most of my bras are extremely uncomfortable at this point too. My favorite part of the day is coming home, taking my bra off and putting on my husband's t-shirts.

Go-to eats: I am really focused on trying to eat healthier this last leg of the pregnancy. 2nd trimester, I kinda  just ate whatever I wanted. I want to do better for both myself and Cameron here at the end - and for the sake of my growing waist line!

Best moment of the week: Well I had my glucose test this week so I was a nervous wreck! And I had to get my first Rhogam shot for my negative blood type... neither one of those were the best moments haha!

The best moment of the week is probably scheduling all of my doctor's appointments through my due date. Every two weeks for the next month, then every week until he gets here. It absolutely is blowing my mind that he will be here SO SOON! But it's wonderful and so exciting to think about him being here!

Gender: BOY!!!

What I’m looking forward to: Seeing my baby boy again in a couple weeks at my next ultrasound at my 32 week doctor visit. My shower is this Friday, 9/9 so I'm excited to finish the little touches in his room after that's over with.

Milestones: We put his crib and changing table in his room last weekend. Hitting the 3rd trimester is a HUGE milestone. It almost makes me sad that it's gone by so fast! But then again that means he will be here SOON!
