28 Weeks

28 WeeksHow far along: 28 weeks & 2 days
Baby updates: Baby Harper is weighing about 2.5 lbs and is around 16 inches long! He’s very active and I have come to love feeling him wiggle around through the day — especially because it is such a good sign of his health & well-being!
Mamma updates: I’m generally feeling pretty well, although this was kind of a tough week with more aches & pains.  My normal 20 minute walk home from work is taking me more like 30 minutes and I am getting more cramps when I do too much, so I’m trying to take it easy.  I’m also having a harder time getting comfortable and sleeping.  Thankfully my doctor said everything looks good and normal, so nothing to worry about, and I would definitely take these third trimester discomforts over those of the first trimester any day.
Things I miss: Caipirinhas and feeling normal!
Cravings: Nothing really.
Weight: +17
Best moments of the week:  Lots of fun over the past week!  Celebrating birthdays (Jeff Jones & Joe Harper in São Paulo, Mama and Bradley Zais from a distance), spending time with friends, helping Joe move to a new apartment one block down the street from us, AND our dear friends, the Hudsons, were so kind to let us send some of our big baby-items in their crate-shipment which arrived this week, so it has been really fun to do some rearranging and get a little more ready for baby Harper to arrive.  We’re so excited to meet you, little guy!

  1. Hey Ashley,

    If u can stomach bananas have a half one or a whole one about 15-30 minutes before you start your walk home and the pain should lessen. Also everyone says it and I am now a true believer you have to drink ALOT of water everyday ;). Just some 2 cents from lil ole me.

  2. The third trimester is when you pamper pamper pamper! If you can or feel up to it, get a massage, a pedicure, a manicure…the works! It’s what kept me going!
