Month 7 (25-28 weeks)- Pregnancy Woes

Month seven has been a blur. There is nothing in particular that sticks out from week to week that happened, but the whole month in general brought on new pregnancy challenges.
  • Swollenness
    • arms
    • legs
    • ankles (more like kankles)
    • face
  • Continual battles with acne (nothing new there)
  • Braxton Hicks contractions. Nothing alarming, but some days they can occur once or twice every hour and can make me feel uncomfortable. I just need to learn to take it easy when that happens
  • Back pain
  • Sleepless nights (due to the never ending trips the the bathroom and the nagging back pain)
All-in-all though I still feel great. The above issues are all manageable and just part of being pregnant so I try not to complain (too much).

My doctors appointment this month meant I had to pass my glucose test, and I did! No gestational diabetes for me. I also gained another 6 lbs this month, making my total gain 17 lbs. At this rate, I will be huge when my due date arrives! I am just glad to know that baby boy is growing.

Enough talk, I know all you want to see are the weekly photos, so here they are:

The best part of this month was that Jesse and I took a mini vacation to three new states! I guess it was our last big hoorah before baby arrives. More to come on the trip later.


  1. I love that growing bump! You look great!

  2. I cannot believe you are 28 weeks !!! I agree with Lindsey, you look fantastic!

  3. Lookin' good! Are you registered anywhere yet? I might need to do some serious shopping.

    1. Yes, we are registered at Babies R Us, Target and we have an Amazon baby registry,
