28 weeks today! Woot woot! We had our maternity pictures today. We went to Peggy Iileen Johnson who did my boudoir photos last year. She does a great job and doesn’t charge an arm and a leg and she also gives us a CD with all the pictures on it. I think that is the only way to go anymore. We did a lot in the studio and even got some with Daisy 🙂 And then we went to a field that Peggy really likes to get some outdoor shots. I was excited about that too and can’t wait to see them, but I didn’t think about my allergies. They got pretty bad and I was wearing a knee length skirt so all the weeds and stuff out there made me break out in hives on my legs and they were so itchy! So towards the end I was pretty miserable. Hopefully it doesn’t show too much in the pictures. We came home right after and I jumped in the shower and realized we didn’t have any Benedryl so John ran to Walgreen’s to get me some and now I’m laying on the couch.
Symptoms?: Same–back hurts most days.
Weight gain?: Lost 2 pounds this week–probably just from the NE trip. So I’m up +13 pounds total.
Stretch marks?: Same
Belly button–in or out? Still in, but I think the top is about level and kinda sticking out a little. I usually can only see the top part of my belly button ring hole, but I can see the bottom too now.
Best thing that happened this week?: Our pictures today was fun!
Any baby-related purchases this week?: Nope
Nursery progress?: Same
Milestones reached?: 7 months!
What size is the baby?: Still an eggplant but about 2 1/2 pounds and almost 15 inches long!
Belly picture: I actually didn’t take one. I was going to after our maternity photo session, but I ran into the shower. So I think the 350ish pictures Peggy took will suffice for the 28 week belly pic 🙂
