28 Weeks

Look at that little face! (Had to turn it vertical so everyone could see him straight on). He's looking so much like a chubby little baby instead of one of those little aliens they all start out as! All is well with my cervix--in fact it's longer than ever. That progesterone is definitely doing it's job! I'm doing so well I get to wait two whole weeks before I see the doctor again. Definitely a good sign! He's finally head down again, which is much more comfortable for this momma, since he's been doing his Jazzercises for the last 24 hours it seems.
I'm really starting to feel the pregnancy these days. My hip bones feel like they are going to split apart sometimes and I get heartburn from everything that I eat. I'm also extremely tired--I honestly wish I could just nap all day! And there are some weird things that keep it interesting as well: restless leg syndrome (my right leg jumps around the bed all night!) and major muscle cramps each morning in my legs. And even though I'm not lifting Clayton anymore, just sitting with him on the couch is starting to wear me out--he just seems to wrestle me to death and doesn't realize I can't handle it. Not complaining about any of this since I'm so glad to still be pregnant, but definitely making note of the changes in my body and energy level!

You're definitely still in that extreme exhaustion phase, but you should be out of it soon! Baby looking good!
