Baby Special: 28 Weeks

Weeks:  28 weeks – only three months til we meet the littlest Maloney/Special!

Baby's Size:  Baby Special is the size of a large eggplant – 2.25 pounds and 14.8 inches from top of the head to the heels. 

Trimester: THIRD!

Cravings: Still no cravings at all.  It’s funny, because this is one of the questions I am asked most often… and I don’t really have anything to report!  Maybe these will come in the later months of pregnancy.  I’ll keep you posted J

How I'm Feeling: Still feeling dang good.  I am focused on staying fit and active as long as possible, and I think it’s a bit cyclical – staying active helps me to be ABLE to stay active.  Eating healthily makes me want to eat healthily, etc. 

Movement: Baby is moving and shaking!  I thoroughly enjoy feeling him/her moving throughout the day.  It’s fun – and a bit daunting – to know that I’m never truly alone.  On a larger scale, it makes me question every bite of food I put in my mouth, every step I take, and everything I breathe in to my lungs.  Baby is truly loved, and I refuse  to knowingly do anything to harm him or her! 

My thoughts:  My family was here for much of the past two weeks, and it was just a wonderful time.  Long, laborious days (mostly for my parents and Scott – I did a lot of chatting) but also lot of laughs and bonding and just… needed.  Being pregnant and away from them has been so difficult (much as I expect parenting away from them will be)… and I’m grateful for the holidays to allow us to spend extra time together.   This time has made me wish – more than ever! - that we lived closer to each other!
