Baby No. 3 :: 28 Week Bump Update

5:00:00 AM

28 weeks! 7 months!

Time is passing by so quickly this pregnancy. I'm feeling the pressure of getting the nursery ready, but we have been a little preoccupied here in the "Sunshine State" lately as we brace for Hurricane Irma. Even though we are safe and sound in our home at the moment, we will most likely soon be without power and who knows the devastation that we will wake up to after the storm has passed. Our city has been booming and thriving lately so it is going to be a bit sad to see what will become of our hometown in the aftermath, but we have survived other storms and we will pull together and recover as always.

It is sad that it takes tragedy and catastrophe to bring us all together as human beings, because mother nature sees no color of skin or political party. She will take out whoever stands in her way, rich or poor, black or white, Democrat or Republican. If only we could always put aside our differences to take care of one another...

Getting off of that soap box, here is how mommy + baby girl have been doing lately:

How far along? 28 weeks
Total weight gain: +18 pounds
Maternity clothes? Yes (for the most part)
Stretch marks? none
Sleep: Trying...could always use more.
Best moment of this weekThis little lady is so active and I absolutely love feeling her dance in my belly. 
Miss Anything? Sleep; however I know it will be a good while before I get good sleep again.
Movement: Yes, it's the best!
Food cravings: sweets. I could really go for a Reece's peanut butter cup right about now.
Anything making you queasy or sick? This morning, cooking bacon was not pleasant.
Have you started to show yet? Definitely
Gender: girl
Labor Signs? no. Thank goodness, she needs quite a bit more time to cook.
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time? Happy, but a little stressed this week with work + kids out of school + hurricane preparations.
Looking forward to? Starting to put together the nursery after this hurricane passes. I have been gathering a few items here and there, so I cannot wait to start putting it all together!

Clinging to these verses the next few days as we continue to make our way through hurricane Irma, but very relevant for all of life's storms that may come your way (physical or not) :

"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with surging."
Psalm 46:1-3
