28 weeks, +1

Yesterday got away from me....  So, here is my weekly post!!  :0)

How many weeks:  28 weeks - 3rd trimester BABY!!

How am I feeling: Hot and tired, but oh, so very excited, blessed, humbled, overwhelmed!!

Doctor’s Appointment:  Yesterday we saw the MFM.  Next Friday, May 20th we see the OB for a check-up.  Then we will see her every week until Noah comes.  We go back to the MFM on June 10th (32 wks) and at that appointment we will set up an appointment to have my cerclage removed.  I cannot believe this is my life.  :0)

Weight Gain:  More than I care to report.  :(

Maternity Clothes:  I wear all maternity clothes these days.  Love it!

Baby Preparation: Nursery is ready, pack-n-play is set up in our room.  Matt hung all the stuff on the walls in the nursery.  :0)  We have a shower next Sunday and then another at the end of June.  So thrilled that this is our life.

Gender: precious baby boy (confirmed on 5 separate u/s - so anything different would totally catch us off guard LOL)

Name:  Noah Reagan McCleskey.  It means Peaceful Little King.  Pretty sweet!

Sleep:  Sleep has never been a problem with any of my pregnancies.  I think it's because of the Prometrium.  :0)  Although Noah likes to wake me up with some kicks/punches around 3 or 4 in the a.m. - I think he just needs some mommy time.  I love it. :0)

Best moment this week:  Feeling him more, with much bigger movements.  And, I just love getting to see him wiggling away on the u/s.  He is so adorable.  I cannot wait to squeeze him!!

Movement: A lot.  I love it.  I love being woken up by it early in the morning.  It's so sweet.

Food cravings: sweet fruits, mango, watermelon, strawberries

What I miss: I think the only thing I really miss is the ease with which I used to be able to get off the couch, our bed, or pretty much any soft, low sitting, seating.

What I am looking forward to: Well, we have made it to the 3rd trimester.  I am very much looking forward to making it to 30 weeks, and then 32 and then 36 and then holding my little boy and loving him up!!

Milestones:  Today!  I'm 28 wks pregnant.  Me, Amanda, 28 weeks pregnant - after years of not knowing if I'd ever get to write something like that....I am so blessed to say that I am 28 weeks pregnant.  My son is big, and healthy.  That is a milestone.  :0)

Picture Time!!

 sweet face!!
