28 Weeks | Baby #2

How far along?: 28 weeks! Woohoo 3rd Trimester! Here I am at 28 weeks with Ralphie. Feeling about the same size-wise.
Total Weight Gain: Prenatal appointment tomorrow. I think about +18.
Maternity clothes? Nearly always.
Stretch marks? No.
Sleep: Getting better. Re-teaching myself to sleep on my side. 
Best moment this week: I loved the relaxing visit we had to the beach. Digging a hole for my belly in the sand was great.
Movement: Now in more than one place at once. Generally still just bumps and kicks, but occasionally he really goes at it. He also likes to curl up right on my bladder.
Cravings: Strawberries and dark chocolate. Mmm.
Gender: Sweet, darling baby boy.
Labor Signs: Nothing lately.
Wedding rings on or off: On. So thankful for zero swelling. Hopefully that will last through the hot summer days that are coming.
Happy or Moody most days: This past month started with nightmarish moodiness, and ended with mountain-top happiness.
Belly Button in or out? Half out! 
What I miss: Sleeping on my back. And I really wanted to drink a big margarita last week at the beach.
Starting to show yet: Everyone says so! My midwife told me, "Well, you finally did it! He's just popped right out." :)
Anything causing sickness or nausea: No.
What I am looking forward to: soaking up every minute of this coming summer!
Milestones: 3rd and final trimester!
