6 down, 3 to go!

(Click the pictures to enlarge)

What I know now at 28 weeks:
  1. Officially in third trimester. It's going so fast! I was sooo looking forward to this week, but it feels pretty much the same.
  2. Not much is new. I thought a lot would change in 4 weeks, but not really. I bet that changes though from here on out!
  3. I have gained 21 pounds so far. My feet are feeling it.
  4. Crocs rock.
  5. My bum is bigger. I wouldn't have noticed except that yesterday I decided to try on some capri's that used to fit, hoping I could still wear them with the button and zipper undone... but I'll never know since they wouldn't even make it over the rump.
  6. My skin is getting ugly. I've noticed lots more dry spots, bumps, and red spots. Even a few on my arms = Weirdness.
  7. I have to officially roll out of bed now. Can no longer use my abs to sit straight up. If I try, Ben helps.
  8. Our little girl is shy. Either that or rude. When she's going CRAZY kicking and moving, she immediately stops the second I decide to let someone else try to feel her.It's embarrassing.
  9. I've received my share of swift kicks in the ribs. I've scared my students while tutoring from jumping and crying out when she does it. She only does it to my right ones though.
  10. She also likes to stretch. She'll stretch her feet against my ribs and push, making my stomach contort in all sorts of shapes.
  11. We get a good laugh at how funny my stomach looks when I flex it while laying down. It turns into this long triangle shaped thing.
  12. We also laugh at how it looks when I'm laughing (while laying down). I've had a few unstoppable laughing attacks lately.
  13. Sometimes when I'm trying to pass through small spaces, I still suck in thinking it will help. It doesn't.
  14. Invested in a little belly pillow for when I'm laying on my sides. Definitely a necessity.
  15. And that's about all we've invested in. We still have nothing. I just can't bring myself to buy anything yet (besides clothes.... that I can always get). I'm preparing myself (and Ben) for June after my showers, when I'll let loose and go crazy.
  16. I feel great and am still loving every minute of it!
  17. She doesn't have a name yet. We have a couple favorites, but we just can't decide.

You look amazing!
Our word verification is Maryn. I think it's a sign. That is what you should name her.
