28 Weeks 4 Days Update/Quiz

How far along: 28 weeks 4 days
Symptoms: Heartburn, frequent potty trips, stretch marks, tiredness

Total weight gain: 15 lbs as of my last OB appointment. We'll see how that changes after tomorrow's appointment.

Maternity clothes: I'm loving my dresses.
Half of them are not maternity but I can still wear them. My pants and shorts are all maternity. Only half the shirts I wear are maternity. Pretty impressive, since I'm over 6 months pregnant.

Stretch marks: My stretch marks are having babies of their own. They multiply like bunnies. But it's only below my belly button and all in a line. I use my cocoa butter, but those darn stretch marks have no shame.

Sleep: I've been sleeping fairly well most of the night. Although, I am SOOOO hot. I wake up realizing that I must have been sweating. I don't wake up in the middle of the night hot, I just wake up to the realization that I had been sweating.
Best moment this week: Baby Girl doesn't like to kick when anyone's hand is on my belly, not even mine. So I decided that Hubby needed to lay his head on my belly to see what she would do. She kicked him twice...in the head. Love this baby so much!

Movement: Tons. I think she's running a gym out of my womb. She's got some Zumba classes going on, aerobics, soccer practice, and kick boxing. Too bad I can't collect on the membership fees.

Food cravings: Salads, fruit, and cereal (not just any cereal. Multigrain Cheerios!). Yum!

Belly Button in or out: It's still an inny, but it's getting more and more shallow. I think it will eventually just be flat like a pancake.

What I miss: Being able to see my feet when I stand. Don't get me wrong, I have a big chest, so it's always been a little tough to see my feet. But now, I have to hunch over to look at my feet if I need to. Plus, I miss the simplicity of shaving my legs. My belly has it's own zip code now, so it's difficult to shave my legs.

What I am looking forward to: Hopefully passing the glucose screening tomorrow. I'm also looking forward to the hospital tour in a few weeks. Oh, and I scheduled my 3D/4D ultrasound for June 12th.
Milestones: Entering the 3rd Trimester, scheduling the hospital tour, and finally buying a new crib (the crib we had was used before and apparently doesn't meet safety standards).
How is daddy? I think he's a little nervous. But he's excited, too. He's just realizing all the things we still need to do, like get the nursery ready.

How are the grandparents? They are still so excited. I'm hoping Hubby's mom can make it up here for the 3D/4D ultrasound, but I don't know her schedule yet. My mom and his mom are stocking up on baby clothes and just getting ready for Baby Girl!

Here's the latest pictures. These were taken today.
