26 & 27 week belly pics & about baby

I am now 28 weeks as of yesterday (just haven't taken the pic yet). Here is what Baby Z is up to these days in her days of growing!

How your baby's growing:

By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She's also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.

Her movement is never consistent...she will go full blast for a few days & then she will have a few days where she sleeps a lot & only moves here & there (I guess when she turns over to get more comfortable lol). I love feeling my baby move & I know she has to have her rest too, but I wish she moved ALL of the time!!! Maybe I'm crazy!

Food is sooooo good right now....I'm hungry all the time & since I passed my glucose test, it's like all I crave is sweets & carbs:) Not good lol!

I sleep pretty well through the night other than switching from side to side all night long to stay comfortable. I have began to have to literally jump out of bed when I get a leg cramp because there is no trying to get it to go away laying down. I get up about once a night to go to the bathroom. I'm back to being exhausted by the end of the day & lower back pain...but hey it's to be expected & we have now ventured into the last trimester:) Exciting & scary all at the same time! Last Drs. visit I had gained 4.4 lbs; I go back again on the 27th for a check up & 4d ultrasound - so with all of these sweets I have been eating, we shall see how much I weigh now:)

This weekend we will complete all of the painting in her room & start putting the furniture together!!! I'm so excited - pictures will come soon!

Girl, I can relate to those leg cramps! OUCH... I have them especially after I've worked a couple days on my feet at the nursing home. Your pregnancy is moving right along and I can't wait to see pic's of the nursery! Love you!

Looking good! I get random cramps in my right leg, and sometimes my calves tighten up. It sucks!
