Baby Cameron: Bump Update

I really have to apologize, I have been a very bad mommy and only have this week's bump photos to show for the last four weeks! =( My lovely co-worker went on vacation and I suck a selfies, so thus...no bump photos. Not to worry, we are back on track!!




How far along? 28 weeks 1 day

Total weight gain/loss: Around 15 pounds.

Maternity clothes? Yes. Pants and tops, although I was able to find quite a few tops from Walmart that will do. Loose fitting, and lots of long camis!

Stretch marks? The beginnings, but I don't mind so much. I am pretty sure my days of bikini wear is over, but I'm still putting cocoa butter lotion on them....when I can remember.

Symptoms: HEARTBURN. Seriously. If the wives tales are right, this kid will have four TIMES the hair his sister did! Acne....I feel like I'm 15 again. Oh how I hate those little bumps, and I can't EVER leave them alone!! Oh, and leg cramps/restless legs. Ugh, I hate it.

Sleep: Sleep is still good most nights. I'm starting to get used to not sleeping on my belly, although I REALLY miss it.

Best moment this week: Seeing the baby again, and knowing that he is TWO POUNDS already!

Have you told family and friends? Yes, everyone knows! It would be a little hard to keep it a secret at this point!

Miss anything? Sleeping on my tummy, not feeling tired all the time. Stretching, and being able to walk around without feeling pain/pressure.

Movement: Tons. Mostly after I eat!

Food Cravings: Ice cream (chocolate marshmallow), Chocolate milk, chocolate candy, Starbursts, Wheat thins, Fruit, pickles, (Yes I'm a stereotypical preggo!) Thin Mints, and also an adversion to red meat. I'd much rather have salad, seafood (no sushi or salmon though - I'm talkin crabmeat YUM) or chicken lately. Also spicy food: buffalo chicken, salsa, hot sauce on tacos, etc.

NEW: White cheddar popcorn, regular popcorn, pb&j sandwiches, Mt. Dew. and Starbucks hot chocolate.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Not really, I just stay away from anything that looks like it might make me icky.

Have you started to show yet? Oh yes. It has been obvious for weeks now!

Baby is a: Bouncing baby boy!! Cameron Glenn =)

Belly Button in or out: It's really starting to thin out. I'm thinking there won't be much left here soon!

Wedding rings on or off? Still on. I kept them on all the way through delivery with Natalie so hopefully I will be able to do that with this one as well. I don't know how I would feel if I couldn't wear them!!

Happy or Moody most of the time: Ask my hubby and he would probably say moody, but other than having no sleep and being cranky I think I'm still a pretty happy camper. My Natalie keeps me smiling!

Looking forward to: Finding out whether or not I have Gestational Diabetes again ( I'm PRAYING for a big ol' NOPE!) and just getting through the next few weeks!

NOT looking forward to: Having to change my eating if I do have GD, and having to prick my fingers four times a day. I just did my three hour glucose test today, so I should know for sure soon.




That's all for now! Look for another update soon!


See you later lovebugs,



Rachael

You look great! Self pics are tough, especially when you're pregnant.
