28 Week Bumpdate: Baby No 2


28 Weeks Pregnant Chalkboard Little Baby Garvin Inspired

How far along: 28 Weeks
Total weight gain: 9 lbs
Stretch marks: Nope. 
Movement: Lots of kicks and punches and moving all around, all the time. 
Mood: Happy and really excited!
Food cravings: Cereal, Sour Candy, Cherry Pepsi, Coffee, Strawberry Kiwi Snapple
Gender: Boy!
Sleep: I miss sleeping on my stomach! And it seems like every night, just as I’m about asleep, he decides it’s time to start kicking and going crazy.
Highlight of the Week: Blaire went with me to my 28 week appointment. I had to do my glucose testing (boo!) which meant I had to get my blood drawn. I told her I had to get a “shot” and she was so sweet! She just kept telling me Just be brave mommy. You be okay, they give you shot real fast and then you get a bandaid and a sticker. It was so adorable and made me want to cry. We celebrated after with Chick-Fil-A and then I got to shop at target, alone.
Miss Anything: Not waking up 100x a night to pee.
Symptoms: Tailbone and rib pain, some pain in the top of my left leg. Also still getting up 100x per night to pee.
Looking forward to: Continuing work on the baby’s nursery. We have the room painted, the crib put together, we’ve purchased some decor and the glider/ottoman are in there. It’s really looking like a nursery these days! We still need random things: a dresser, changing pad, bedding, etc. And we have lots of work to do on the closet. ;)

    You look great! I’m 26 weeks with our 3rd (our 1st girl! Eeek!). I’m right there with you on the peeing a million times a night. And babies always want to have a dance party when it’s bed time! I’m looking forward to your next update!

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
