28 weeks

*How far along?: 28 weeks

*Weight gain: about 15 pounds. I just read that you gain an average of 11 pounds in your 3rd trimester. Yikes!

*Sleep: 8 hours of pretty broken sleep. I'll take it.

*Stretch marks: A couple of light ones on my sides. No where as bad as the deep 3-D ones from Miles. My belly button looks like it's barely attached. I'm sure it's just a matter of weeks before I'm ripping left and right.

*Best moment of this week: Spending some time Brad on Saturday.

*Worst moment of this week: Brad and I realizing how fast this deployment is approaching. He'll meet/see his new son for a total of 3 weeks of his little life and that's about it for the year 2011. The next time they'll meet is April 2012. It's a hard pill for us both to swallow.

*Movement: All the time! This baby is WAY more active then Miles ever was. I wonder that means? More active baby?

*Food cravings: No, just want food. Realizing that the eating has to slow down. There just isn't any more room.

*What I miss most: taking decongestants. So over all these colds and sinus infections. Oh and being able to flip over in bed without having to stand up and climb back in to my new position. :)

*What I'm looking forward to: Of course I'm ready for the baby to come out... but that also means Brad is leaving too. So my thoughts are to just enjoy the now, uncomfortable as now may be.

*Measuring: unknown but I feel BIG!
