28 weeks! Single digits to Full Term!

How Far Along? 28 weeks

Maternity Clothes? Had to give back all of the maternity clothes my friend gave me...she's 10 weeks preg! I'm sporting lots of tights and non-maternity A-line shirts. Current dilema: i'm normally obsessed with lululemon casual pants but my current ones don't fit...i don't want to pay $100 to get a new pair in a HUGE size that (hopefully) won't fit me after the baby! I don't know where to find similar and affordable casual lounge pants that are suitable for a preggo! Any suggestions?

Stretch Marks? No. Still hoping to avoid those! But I have a random spider vein on my thigh now. Hate it.

Sleep? Too many middle of the night mini-bile-barfs are making me crazy. This heartburn is HORRID! I think I will just have to stop eating past 6pm...but them i'm sure I'll wake up with a grumbling tummy in the middle of the night! I think this might be a lose-lose situation at this point!

Best Moment of the Week? Buying paint for the nursery! And NOT getting a call from my OB after my glucose test! Yeah for no diabetes! And.....we bought our stroller! The uppababy vista! Love it! Actually my generous MIL bought it for us!

Movement? Crazy awesome movement! Feeling/seeing the baby move is definitely the best/coolest part of being pregnant!

Food Cravings? Not really.

Gender? Ultrasound next week will hopefully confirm its a girl! I'm really nervous they were wrong the first time and I will be in for a shock at delivery!

What I miss? Sleeping through the night! I think that's gone for a long long long time!

What I'm looking forward to? Ultrasound next Monday to check on placenta and hopefully re-check the gender! And going to register/shop at Babies R Us this weekend with my mom!

Weekly Wisdom: ?

Milestones: Making it to the single-digit-week countdown to full term! 9 weeks to go!

Emotions: I'm cranky when I'm tired. I was super snappy at hubs Friday night. I just can't help it and I don't know what I want from him. Pretty much he is just screwed! Saturday he bought me beautiful flowers and that combined with a good night sleep I was much happier and more pleasant to be around on Saturday.

Here are a few pics of the belly from a wedding we went to on Saturday. It's getting BIG!

Hope you all have a great week! So happy its already Wednesday! I can't wait until the weekend so we can get painting the baby room!!!!

    Glad you are doing awesome. Re: the lululemon pants. I have a gift card to there that I got for Christmas (I know, I've been hoarding it!) and I am planning to buy big-sized loungies when I actually need them. Such a splurge.

    Do you guys have Target? They have cute, cheapo loungies with drawstring waistbands here in the states. xo

    i can't even wear heels on a good day, so i can't believe you're wearing them at 28 weeks!!!

  9. You are too cute! I love that dress!

  10. 7 months and heels!!!! KUDOS TO YOU!! :)

  12. You are Georgous!!! so happy for you :)

  13. You look great!! Congratulations on the 3T and 28 weeks!!! I hope that you have a great time with your mom shopping this weekend!!!

  14. Yay for not having gestational diabetes!!! that is awesome news, take it from me, having GD sucks! Have fun with the nursery, its exciting getting it ready.

    You look wonderful girl, I'm jealous =)

  15. Happy 28 weeks! You are super cute. I live in my lulus and will be so sad when they no longer fit. Old Navy has some decent maternity yoga pants that should do the trick.

  16. Yay for getting your stroller, I can't wait to get mine!! And also yay for no diabetes! For once I was happy not to get a call. You look adorable, is that a maternity dress?? I have two weddings coming up and all the maternity dresses I've found are yucky...I was something cute and tight like yours!!
