28 weeks!

headed out to register!
 How far along: 28 weeks! THIRD trimester! 

Size of baby: According to thebump.com Jaqs is the size of an eggplant! She's around 15 inches long and weighing in somewhere around 2-2.5 pounds.

Total weight gain: Up 15ish pounds. I don't have a doctor appointment until 30 weeks, so I'm not exactly sure.

Gender: Baby girl!

Movement: Yes...now we're sometimes able to tell where she is by a bulging head or hiney sticking out one side! I think she must not be able to do her gymnastics as easily now because my whole belly shakes when she turns.

Sleep: Sleep's still good, thankfully. I'm using a body pillow now, so that makes getting comfy easier! I'm usually up at least once to use the bathroom but have no problem falling right back to sleep.

What I miss: Nothing!

ready to tackle the list
Cravings: I've been on a fruit and cottage cheese kick lately...so yummy! But before you roll your eyes at that, please know that Rob & I ate his entire birthday cake between us this week. Whoops. Couldn't help it...Bob's Red Mill GF chocolate cake is delish! And most of our friends are cleansing...WHATEVER! ;)

Symptoms: Shortness of breath at times and foot cramps. I hate the way those things sneak up on ya!

Maternity clothes: Still working with both.

Best moments this week: 
--Knowing we've arrived in the 3rd & final trimester...WOW.
--Building our baby registry. So much fun, but also scary. Little people are veeeerrrry expensive.
--Jaqs' nursery is finally underway! I'm SO excited to see how it'll all turn out. Her bedding may even be done by the end of the month :)

 THE list. Yes, I'm old school and prefer a hand-written list over a typed one. Anyway, this baby registry has been kind of overwhelming me, but I think we've mostly got it knocked out now! I still need to make a few adjustments to it, but I'm glad to have that checked off our to-dos. It's hard to know what your baby will like and what's necessary, but we will learn as we go, I'm sure.

And one more little tid-bit...these beauties arrived today:
I've been going back and forth on cloth diapering since before I was even pregnant, so when Cotton Babies was having a clearance sale on the all-in-ones last week, I took it as my sign to go for it. There are many benefits to cloth diapering, so I'm really hoping that Jaqs and I will both embrace and love it. If you have any advice on the matter, please do share!!

Hey KT! I'm looking into cloth diapers also, and I was wondering whether you plan to wash at home or hire a service for it (?). So far, the cost advantage has me leaning toward cloth :-)

I can't believe your 28 weeks already! Jaqs will be here so soon!!! Can't wait to see her sweet face :)

Woo-hoo for 3rd trimester!!! You look adorable! And HOORAY for bum genius cloth diapers!!!! We use them and love them. We use the 4.0 one size pockets. I have been planning on writing a post about cloth diapering...so hopefully I'll get to that soon and perhaps it will help you a bit. It was all VERY overwhelming to me at first. Let me know if you have any questions!

The shortness of breath is getting me too!! I can only imagine how much worse it is for you.

You look adorable in that hat!! YAY for third trimester!!!! You're gettin' there. :)

(P.S. I am going to try apple cider vinegar on my face...I've read a lot about it and I already believe in ACV and natural stuff for sure. Maybe ask your doctor, but I bet they'd approve that. Beware, it stinks!)

Hi there! Just wanted to tell you that I tagged you in an "11 Random Things" post if you want to do it sometime! If not, no worries, I know you're busy growing a human and all. ;)
