Pregnancy 2.0: 28 Weeks

28 weeks

Size of Baby: About the size of a tropical coconut, according to my pregnancy app! I’m now also officially in the third trimester! Only 12 weeks to go!

Feeling: Not too bad, other than the usual nagging hip pain. I’ve been waking up at least once every night to go to the bathroom, and when I wake up I’m usually sweating to death. I blame the Snoogle, really.

Craving: I satisfied my hankering for a Vietnamese Spring Roll while I was in Vancouver on the weekend, so that was delicious. Now I’m really wanting bacon & hashbrowns for some reason, so on Friday I’m going to make that for everyone.

Other: I’ve started touching up the paint in the nursery. I did the trim yesterday and I still have around the window to do, but I have to buy a small can of paint before I do that. I also bought a lamp for the nursery while I was in Ikea and looked for some kind of artwork for the walls, but didn’t come up with anything. Here’s the lamp I got though. It’s really pretty and not too bright!


I also bought a cute little bunny stuffed toy from Ikea. Really, I could have gone REALLY crazy there, but refrained big time.

Also, while I was in Vancouver I hit up Old Navy thinking I’d be able to find some maternity clothes there for a decent price. Umm, not so much. They had NOTHING in my size and their maternity clothing was priced about the same as actual maternity store’s. Lame-o. I found 1 shirt for $10 and that was it. Isla got some cute new clothes though, so it wasn’t a complete bust.

Oh yes, and for those who care to hazard a guess, Baby Girl’s name starts with the letter “N.” Isla still insists it’s Ketchup though ;)

  1. It’s ridiculous how expensive and ugly maternity clothing is! And no options in Canada unless you buy online but then you can’t try them on. Have you looked at pink blush maternity? They have some great stuff for good prices but you do have to pay shipping


  2. Such a bummer about Old Navy! One of the things I love most about them is how affordable their clothes are. I was hoping to stop in to their store sometime soon to get some summer-y clothes! My wardrobe needs an update!

    Let’s see… baby name guess… Natalie? I don’t think that’s it, but I thought I would play! Haha.


    • They’re regular/non-maternity stuff was awesome and on sale and had all my regular sizes, but the maternity section was such a letdown. I was wishing pretty hard that I wasn’t pregnant, because there was a lot of other stuff I saw that was super cute!
