Weeks 26-28

How Far Along? 26, 27, and 28 (wow - I'm really behind!)

Maternity Clothes?  All the time on the bottom and most of the time on the top.  It's finally cooling off some which is good since most of the tops I have are long sleeved. 

Weight Gain? 25 pounds, I think.  They didn't tell me my official weight gain at my last appointment, just that I was on track. 

Stretch Marks? I think I noticed one of these on the side of my belly last week.  I haven't really been able to see it since then.  I'm shocked that more of these haven't popped up yet, since my mom had a lot from her pregnancies. 

Sleep? Pretty good lately, I usually just wake up once a night to use the bathroom.  I'm sleeping on my side with a pillow under my belly which really helps.  The cooler temps have been great too. 

Best Moment of the Week: Celebrating turning 30 with my parents, sister, and brother in law.  Having a long weekend off from work :) 

Weirdest Comment: Ah, this really comes and goes.  It's mainly stuff from people at my office, like commenting about my size, either saying that I'm getting big or still really small.  It's funny how differently people seem to view the size of my belly :)  When I went to the HR department to get my FM.LA paperwork, our HR person did ask how much weight I had gained, which I thought was rather odd.  I think she was assuming I hadn't gained hardly any at all, but still, what kind of a question is that?     
Movement?  Yes, all the time.  I still only feel it when I'm sitting down though.  Honestly, this was one thing I thought I wouldn't really like about pregnancy, but I love it! 

Gender?  It's a boy! 

What I miss? Being able to take full breaths - I think I'm starting to run out of room in there. 

Symptoms: Getting full really quickly after eating, quite a bit of gas the past few days, things are really starting to feel full in my abdomen area. 

Milestones: The nursery is pretty close to being finished.  All of the furniture is set up, I just need to do the decorating part :)  Some of that I'll be waiting and doing after he's born too since I want the room to really fit him. 

Our first baby shower (the triple one) is this weekend.  I don't know if I'm looking forward to it or just dreading it.  The responses I've gotten when I've told people about it are really funny.  Seriously, everyone I've talked to thinks it's totally bizarre to make 3 people have a baby shower all together.  I'm wondering how long it will last.  If everyone opens their gifts up it could take hours. 

Emotions:  They have been up and down lately.  I'm really excited about this pregnancy and being a mom, but I'm also starting to get more emotional about things.  The other day I spent a lot of time feeling worried and nervous about my job, which is crazy.  I just need to focus on this baby and not worry about things I can't control.
