Week 28

Tomorrow I hit week 29 so this Week 28 post is sliding in just under the deadline. ;-) This has been one of the most incredible weeks ever and there will be many more posts to come celebrating all the wonderful things we've done (babymoon in Mexico, baby showers in Houston, and revealing Baby Girl's name to our family just to name a few). But for now, here's the rough and quick Week 28 update.

How far along: 28 weeks, 6 days

Size of Baby S: 2 lbs, 4 oz

Fruit/vegetable comparison (according to Baby Center): Chinese cabbage (yes, I know my drawing looks nothing like this, but bear in mind I am an engineer with minimal no artistic talents)

Sleep: Good.

Movement: Yes, but mostly when I am laying down. She's very inconsistent with movement throughout the day which made it hard for any family to feel her kick this last week.

Unglamorous body changes: Starting to go to the bathroom even more often. For those of you that know me this means I am spending a significant amount of time each day either needing to pee or peeing, haha.

I also am having a lot of restless leg syndrom. I was experiencing some before we left, but I think the plane rides exaggerated it. Fortunately it's slowed down a lot and not too bad.

Maternity Clothes? Yep. :-)

Showing: Yes! Although the airlines still didn't seem to care on any of the three flights we've had the past week and a half how far along I am. I brought a doctor's note authorizing me to fly just in case so we will see if I use it next week on the return trip to Stavanger...

Food cravings: Nope. We are getting our fill of Mexican food, Texas bbq, and sweets (hello delicious shower cakes and cookies!)

What I miss: Still lunch meat. I *almost* ordered a club sandwich yesterday, but then maintained my self-control after the thought of listeria crept into my mind.

Anything making you queasy: Nope. Maybe I should remove this question since the answer is always no. :-/

Strange experiences: Not strange, but having more people touch my stomach since that hasn't happened in Norway. I don't mind, but a couple times I was taken aback when a touch came unexpectedly.

Milestones: Baby Girl can blink and is now sporting eye lashes. She may be able to see light through the womb and is continuing to develop billions of neurons in her brain and adding fat to her little body in preparation for being outside the womb.

Best moment this week: Really?! After that list above of things we did this week there is no way I can pick a best moment! There are just too many. :-)

Looking forward to: Slowing down a bit now that the majority of activities have taken place and we've gotten almost everything done that we need to in preparation for our air shipment of baby stuff.
