28 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights
How Far Along: 28 weeks (THIRD trimester--woohoo!)
Size of baby: About 15 inches long and two and a quarter pounds (although he was measuring over a week ahead at my last appointment, and while that doesn't always mean anything, Avery was a pretty big baby, so I'm terrified that he'll be even bigger!)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 17 lbs. 
Maternity Clothes: I'm in mostly maternity clothes because I don't want to stretch out my "real" clothes, but I still wear some regular tops.
Gender: We're having a boy! Introducing.... Landon Matthew. :)
Movement: I feel lots of movement all the time; surely he can't be as active as Avery, right? I think I might be in trouble. You can seriously see my belly moving now, and it still creeps me out!
Sleep: I'm sleeping okay for now once I actually get to sleep. I might be busting out the body pillow soon though!
What I miss: Being skinny :) Okay, so that's a little vain. Sorry.  
Cravings: I have a major sweet tooth these days. And I crave milk. Seriously, I'm drinking more milk than Avery.
Symptoms: I have to pee like all the time. TMI, but annoyingly true.
Best Moment this week: Hitting the third trimester mark. Although I know the time will just crawl toward the end, I like knowing that I'm in the final stretch!

The closer we get to meeting Landon, the more excited I get about Avery having a little brother. I find myself watching little siblings interact (and how excited Avery gets whenever she sees any baby, haha), and I just look forward to seeing them grow up together. I wonder what his little personality will be like, and how having another kid will change our family dynamic. There are lots of unknowns, but it'll be a fun ride.
