28 Weeks

I am now 28 weeks pregnant. It's hard to believe that in just two short weeks I'll be in the 30's already. These last several weeks have been flying by! Rumor has it that the last month slows WAY down, but for now, these next couple of months are so busy. By the time my calendar clears up, I'll be on maternity leave, so life will be good!
The little bean is not so little anymore - she is now about the size of a Chinese cabbage. She's about 15 inches long, and weighs somewhere around 2 1/4 pounds. It's pretty crazy to think that in just a few months she will probably triple her weight. I have a feeling that I will be feeling that weight increase quite a bit!

She's continuing to put on fat, and she's giving her eyelids a workout. She's becoming more and more sensitive to light and dark, so she is doing a lot of blinking. I tried putting a flashlight up to my belly, but I didn't get any reaction out of her. She now has eyelashes on those pretty little lids of hers.
28 Weeks
I'm still feeling pretty good these days. I'm just a little more tired than I have been so I've taken a couple of lunchtime naps, but I'm still not feeling anywhere near as tired as I was in the first trimester. I don't feel like there's been any major belly growth this week, but I'm sure it's happening little by little!

On the medical side of things, everything is going well. I got a phone call on Friday that my tests came back normal, and I passed my glucose test! I don't know why I was so worried about it, but I am glad to know I don't have to worry about it. I go for my 28 week checkup tomorrow, so I'll update more about things then.


And now for some more picture fun!
My Valentine roses and cakes. :)

And some nursery progress:
Mike finishing up the painting of the stripes.

Blue paint done!

Dexter inspecting the chair rail installation.

The chair rail is up, and I look like Tweedledee (or Tweedledum...)

Dexter is convinced that this new room is for him - he's enjoying the Co-Sleeper.

And here's the nursery with most of the furniture in place. I'll post more once we get the crib put in and some things on the walls! So far I think it's looking great. :)

Hey Alanna! Can't wait to catch up on your blog and your journey through pregnancy! Your belly is still so tiny! I'm 2 weeks behind you and feel like a blimp compared to you haha. Good job on the nursery!!!!

The nursery looks amazing. I love the yellow stripes and the blue and the chair rail. You and Mike did a great job!
