Mommy Monday {28 Weeks}

Not only have I hit the third trimester mark, but one of my best friends is currently in labor and will be welcoming her baby boy any time now! I'm so ecstatic for her and her husband and cannot wait to meet their handsome little bundle.

I cannot believe how fast the first two trimester's have gone. Before we know it baby girl is going to be here in our arms. I'm having mixed feelings about this because I just love feeling her kicks, but cannot wait to see her and love on her in person.

Without further ado...

How far along? 28 weeks! Hello Third Trimester!
Total weight gain: Still at 20 lbs and really trying to limit my sweets intake. It's just so hard to resist. 
Maternity clothes: The dress I am wearing this week is non-maternity from Target's clearance rack. I paid a whopping $7.98 and it is sooo comfortable!
Stretch marks: Still loving my Honest Co. Organic Belly Balm! I have started to use it more frequently and will likely buy more of this fantastic stuff when I inevitably run out. 
Sleep: I have come to the conclusion that my left lung pain was not heartburn, but an ill-fitting bra from Motherhood Maternity {don't get me started on how irritated I am with that store, perhaps I will tell that story later}. Since I have stopped wearing that bra, the pain is non-existent. I am now sleeping much better {aside from the charlie horse that I got in my left calf last night}. I purchased the Boppy Pregnancy Wedge last week and it has truly been a lifesaver. 
Best moment this week: Spending some quality time with the Mr. at the Art Festival this past weekend. 
Miss anything? Nothing as of right now. Hopefully it stays this way for a little while. 
Movement: Yes, a ton! Can't get enough. 
Food cravings: I have been dreaming of Chai tea latte's. I will have to indulge one of these days. 
Anything making you queasy or sick? Still nothing in this department!
Gender: Girl!
Labor signs: No and let's keep it that way! Just Braxton Hicks.  
Belly button in or out? In {although, it's sneaking it's way out}. 
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: I've been pretty happy this past week. Thank goodness!
Looking forward to: Our next ultrasound this week! Can't wait to see her again!

Until next time!
