Bump-date: 28 Weeks

How far along: 28 weeks

Baby’s size: a tropical coconut (are there various types of coconuts? I'm unaware)

Total weight gain / loss: Unsure - have not been weighing myself. Sorry!

Sleep: It comes and goes, mostly related to Toby being a terror in the night, but also due to some tossing and turning. I'm trying really hard to staying laying on my left side ("best for baby!!"...) but I inevitably end up on my back.

Loving: cooler weather that feels like fall, snuggling into sweatshirts that still fit, pumpkin spice coffee (with a LOT of milk to dilute it), apple pie bagels (they put that "limited edition" sticker on them and they suck me in, every time!), Chipotle

Loathing: feeling ill if I eat a normal portion of food, most vegetables, feeling out of breath from going up and down the stairs in my house

Movement: pretty regular - little man is practicing his ninja skills. He definitely makes his presence known.

Labor signs: nadda - hoping to keep it that way for about 10 more weeks!

Symptoms: I have noticed just within the last week or so that the tiredness is back - if I have a particularly busy day, I am wiped by the time dinner rolls around. I am having to make sure I wear shoes with good support, because my feet start to kill me by the end of the day. Yesterday, I realized that this is the epitome of pregnancy: thinking about going to the gym, and deciding instead to vacuum the whole house... then realizing when you're done that you're probably just as worn out and out of breath as you would have been if you'd gone to the gym. Yikes.

Belly button: getting closer and closer to "outtie" status... ick. I am holding out hope!

Husband: insisted we go look at the baby clothes section in JC Penney while we were running errands over the weekend... didn't buy anything, but it sure is cute to see him holding up tiny clothes and getting excited!

Can't wait for: the results of my glucose test from Friday - that was a delightful experience! (In all actuality, I didn't think it was nearly as bad as everyone makes it out to be - people sure do love to whine, I guess.)

Does the kind of coconut determine the kind of swallow that can carry it?
