Pregnancy Update – Week 28

Happy Sunday lovely people! There has been a lot of brunching, baking and sweet treating making in the BBB household today, which I can’t wait to share with you throughout the week. But Sunday means – time for another pregnancy update! How far along? 28 weeks 4 days. Farewell to the second trimester, and hello to the third Trimester! I thought it would be the opportune time to see just how much has changed over the last trimester. secondtrimester And when you put the photos together side by side, well the changes really do speak for themselves! How big is baby? This week baby BBB has grown to the size of a Chinese Cabbage. week28chinesecabbage How I’m feeling? Sore. I  really overdid it when volunteering at the Half Ironman last week, and my back and shoulders ached terribly for the first half of the week. I felt like an old lady every time I got up from sitting down, and even needed Mr BBB to give me a little ‘boost’ to get up a few times lol. Weight? About the same as last week.  IMG_3912 How I’m changing? Mentally, I am learning to go easy on myself and accept that it is ok to have quiet days! I think the physical tiredness and soreness after overdoing it last week was a big wake up call, and from now on this gal is taking it easy whenever she can! What I miss? Sleeping on my tummy. While I have been fortunate enough to continue to have relatively great sleep, I do miss being able to sleep on my tummy, and generally be able to roll over without it being a big deal to do so Winking smile  Symptoms? I don’t know whether it is heartburn, or reflux, but I have had some interesting "moments" this week after eating relatively simple meals. The GF toast I routinely have for breakfast sat in my upper tummy / chest terribly for hours on end the other morning, making me think that the quite common pregnancy heartburn may have finally arrived? IMG_3913 So white….so very white! Cravings? Nothing springs to mind. Although the freshly squeezed orange, apple and pineapple juice I had at brunch really hit the spot. Highlights this week? Reaching the third trimester, and continuing to feel so blessed for a happy and healthy pregnancy thus far.

  1. You look amazing! As for the heartburn: Tums were my saviour! Towards the end I found that I couldn't eat any tomato based dishes as it really bothered me…
