Today, we are 28 weeks pregnant and baby girl is the size of a large eggplant. She is moving around so much right now and I am absolutely in love with this feeling. Although, it can still surprise me when she makes those flips or sudden movements. The weeks are creeping up on us and I can’t wait to have the feeling of being fully prepared for her arrival. The nesting stage. We started our registry last week and I couldn’t help but feel overwhelmed with the amount of things we have to know, let alone get. JJ was way more calm than I was. We are two weeks away from 30 weeks, soon after will be my baby shower, and we begin our educational classes that I am pretty excited for. I really need to get back on reading my baby books. Anyone else take a break in the 2nd trimester? Will be updating you more with my pregnancy diet this week. Stay tuned.
