Baby Nolan: Week 28

Baby V: Week 28!

How far along?: 28 weeks only 10 to go!!! Holy cow!

Maternity clothes?: Yup

Weight gain?: +8 total

Sleep: Still enjoying.. I know everyone says it gets rough this trimester, but I'm going to get in as much as I can!

Best moment this week: Last Sunday we celebrated Father's Day which was a lot of fun for Poppy, Dad, and Stephen. Then this week we had two doctor's appointments. One included another detailed ultrasound. It was fun to see how big our little peanut is getting! I think he's looking squished in there. They figure he's weighing about 3.15 lbs now which is in the 66% for this week. I keep telling everyone he's going to be a big one!

Miss Anything?: Being able to clean my whole house without needing to stop for breaks!

Movement: Lots of it. It still amuses me how much you can actually see him moving around. My belly is constantly jerking around.

Food cravings: marinara sauce, spaghetti, and a peanut butter & jelly sandwich yesterday

Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really.. I've been feeling really good lately. I still don't want mac n cheese and I'm iffy about stuff on the grill, but otherwise pretty good!

Gender: still a baby BOY!!!(Yes, I asked the ultrasound tech to check at the scan!)

Labor Signs: nope.. hopefully not for at least 10 more weeks

Belly Button in or out?: Still in

Weddding rings on or off?: Still on.. as long as I'm not outside for long periods of time they're plenty comfortable.

Mood: Typical ups and downs, but that's to be expected right?

Daddy update: Stephen enjoyed his "first" Father's Day with a present from me, Nolan, and Natty. We went to brunch with my family and enjoyed a relaxing, much needed quiet day. He's been busy working and helping me knock out the to do lists around the house and nursery. He starts his online class soon to get ready to rank up this fall. We're very proud of him!

Natty update: I've seen a big change in him the last couple weeks. He's mellowed a lot and he's gotten a lot better about jumping on us when we come in the house. We haven't been brave enough yet to subject house guests to this, so we will see.

Looking forward to: life to slow down a bit and enjoy some summer time fun for a while before really getting into full on baby mode


  1. That pic of you and Natty seriously made me laugh out loud!! I love that!!

  2. Hi Lauren! I had a question for you about possibly collaborating on something and was hoping you could email me back to discuss? Thanks so much!
