28 Weeks

OH.MY.WORD! I am officially huge!

How far along? 28 weeks and 7 months!
How big is Baby? 16 inches, 3 pounds (according to my OB), and the size of cabbage!
Total weight gain/loss: 20 pounds.
Maternity clothes? 95% of what I wear. I am loving jeans. I am still wearing my regular scrubs though, but I may have to move up to a bigger size soon. :-(
Stretch marks? Not yet
Sleep: I'm sleeping ok, but having a hard time getting comfy, so I wake up a lot on my back. With my hips hurting so much it is hard to lie on my side.
Best moment this week: My 28 week appt and passing the glucose test.
Movement: LOVING it! He is VERY active! In the past two weeks he has taken up residence in my ribs and now he is ALWAYS up there!
Food cravings: I could eat ANYTHING right now. Although I've really wanted some fruit and veggies this week.
Gender: It's A BOY!!!!!! Nicholas Allen Ledford.
Labor Signs: none, thank goodness!
Belly Button in or out? That's another thing. I can tell it is starting to move towards the outside. My laparoscopic scar at the base of my belly button that has always been on the inside is now on the outside (you can see it on my abdomen, not just inside my belly button anymore)! AH! It's getting smaller and flatter.
What I am looking forward to: Meeting a lot of blog friends that have supported me and been there for me along the way this weekend!
Milestones: Third Trimester!!!!!! I can't believe we are 2/3 of the way there. Amazing!
Thanks for all the twitter, facebook, and blog comments, thoughts, and prayers for our family today. We appreciate them so much!
Also, I had a comment about flip flops. I am not wearing them if I am on my feet for any amount of time. I just put that dress on after work to see how it looked (it is a regular dress, not maternity) and slid those on for looks. :-) I am wearing good supportive shoes for work and on my feet.

thinking of your family. Any updates?

Also, my ob would not be happy to see you in those flip flops. Your feet need some more support to help with swelling that could be coming down the road. Unfortunately I know that from experience with my first born (son) so that is the only reason I share that information. I wore heels to work and he wanted me in tennis shoes and shoes with support. I share that because the swelling can be very uncomfortable. If you want to wear flip flops could you get a pair with more support right now?
I hope it doesn't sound preachy. I just want to save you from the feet swelling pain.

I've been wearing flip flops to work instead of dress shoes. I know they don't have much support, but my feet would burn up in tennis shoes!
