baby no. 2 {28 weeks}

**Pardon the funny color in the picture. I am without a camera this week so I had to use my iPhone!
how far along? 28 weeks
how are you measuring? measuring right on track
size of baby? size of a eggplant
heartbeat? 148bpm (at our 25 week appointment) 
total weight gain/loss? I didn't weigh this morning because we weren't home, but it can't be good.  I'm feeling huge!! I was hoping to gain less that 40 pounds this go round but I feel like I'm on track to gain 40 again.  Oh well......I lost 45 pounds after Pearson so I know I can do it again if I have to. 
maternity clothes? Yep!
stretch marks? No new stretch marks and no line on the belly.  I wonder if I will escape that dark ugly line that I got on top and bottom of my belly button.  It was so awful looking so I would love to escape it. 
sleep? Pretty good this week. I can't complain. Pearson has been sleeping in until 8:30 or 9 this past week so I have been "sleeping in" until 7:30 or so and then just relaxing in the mornings before he wakes up.
best moment this week? A wonderful Thanksgiving with my family and a fun Saturday in Sherman with Matt's family. 
movement? Yes! Lots of movement in the evenings.  
food cravings? Chai Tea Lattes.  I still can't get enough of them. 
gender predictions? BOY!!!! Nash Matthew Link
what i miss? Just feeling comfortable and being able to move and bend as I please.  
what i'm looking forward to? Our kid-free weekend away (Babymoon #2) to San Antonio and seeing some friends we haven't seen in a really long time!!
how are you feeling? Feeling pretty good this week.  My only complaint is that my body is just plum tired in the evenings.  I start having lots of Braxton Hicks contractions in the evening, my back starts to ache and I just don't feel comfortable.  
comparisons to last pregnancy? I feel smaller in the belly this go round, but I feel like all of my weight gain is going straight to my butt boobs.  I also feel like I haven't done much in preparation for Nash lately.  With Pearson I feel like I was constantly doing something to get ready for him.  Ever since we got most of Nash's room finished I haven't done much.  I guess there isn't really much else to do since we have most everything we need and we are having another boy. 

Here I am 28 weeks with Pearson and 28 weeks with Nash.

You look like a radiant pg woman! Can't wait to see Nash and hold that new little grandson in my arms.
