28 week Bump Update!

...a look at how the bump has progressed.

...Hello 28 weeks and Third Trimester
How Far Along? 28 weeks 2 days
Size of Baby? About 14.8 inches and weighing about 2 and 1/4 lbs 
Maternity Clothes? them... 
Stretch Marks? nope...nadda... nothin'! 
Sleep? So much better!!  Matt helped me research the best positions to make sure my hips are supported.  Basically on my side with a folded body pillow between my knees to keep my legs parallel.  I sleep like a log now. :)  I wake up a little stiff, but nothing I can't stretch out.
Food Cravings? Nothing really this week...that helped the grocery shopping trip. :)
What I Miss: Moving around faster.  I feel so slow.
What I'm Looking Forward To:  My glucose test this Wednesday... I just hope I pass the first time through!  But I'll be able to hear Cricket's heartbeat. :)
Symptoms? I'm seriously cold all the time now!  I thought I was supposed to feel hot! haha... weirdness.  My weight gain has plateaued for the last few weeks... not complaining. 
Movement? What a joke!  My child apparently has nothing better to do than drop kick everything that touches my belly.  (ex: the counter, my desk, a book... and Matt's cheek). 
Belly Button In or Out? Now I know why they call it a belly "button"
Labor Signs? Nope!
Best Moment of the Week? Matt's nesting phase went to a whole new level.  He scrubbed every inch of the kitchen including behind the oven!  Then he proceeded to get a start on the rest of the house.  I'm just trying to keep up and stay out of his way.
