28 weeks pregnant

The weather is awful! It's 93 Fahrenheit outside. Ugh!
Anyways. 
It's belly update time.

How far along? 28 weeks 1 day. In my third trimester. I'm suppose to be happy, excited or scared?

Total weight gain/measurements: 11kg! I still think I'll gain more after this. I'm not sure where all the weight is coming from because I'm not really craving for unhealthy foods nor do I eat an extra more but I'm just piling on more weight every single appointment. Was it the 2 liter water I've been taking?

Maternity clothes: 
Aside from my work uniform, I'm usually in my comfy pajamas on weekends. Didn't purchase any maternity attire since I have tons of empire waist dresses. Oh wait, I take take back, I did bought myself 2 maternity jeans and slacks.

Stretch marks? 
Few weeks ago I experience the most terrible pain on my bums. It feels like your skin is being pulled apart in a straight line. I ask the mother to check it for me and sure is, it's just stretch marks forming. Still, none on my belly.

Belly is too heavy. It's giving me back pain T.T

Sleep: 
Somewhat comfortable. Our little one is gaining some Hercules strength. I'm not sure why our baby choose my bedtime as the most active time. Last time baby was moving so much, I literally balls my eyes out because I couldn't sleep for almost 3 hours.

Best moment this week:
Started our baby stuff piles. The Spouse is more excited than I am.

Miss anything? 
Probably none. Ok well I lied, I miss being active. Being active I meant, go running and not be restricted by all the foods I can't have.

Movement: It's getting uncontrollable. It's crazy. Spouse was talking to baby one night and he got kicked on the face. haha. Also, baby movement was so obvious it literally  freaked us out of excitement everytime baby does somersault inside my belly.
Food cravings: None. My food intake is normal. I even let the spouse choose what we'll have for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sometimes I'll just drink water or eat some biscuits.

Oh fyi, this means work.

Anything making you queasy or sick? 
I forgot but I do have this food that whenever I eat it, it made me want to vomit. Oh, and sense of smell still too strong!

Gender: It's going to be a surprise.
Labour signs: Nope!

Symptoms: 
Aside from the backache and leg cramps, second trimester had been great.

Belly button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On!

Happy or moody most of the time?
Neutral. I'm easily pissed though. It's so funny how the spouse just let me spill everything in the car while I'm driving. Not that I'm a reckless driver or something but I just hate motorcyclist. Both me and the spouse had bad encounter with motorcyclist. So motorcyclist, you pissed me off!

Looking forward to:
 As much as I hate saying this, I'm not really looking forward to the next doctor's appointment. I'm in my third trimester now so it's obviously more needle sticks and glucose test (since I've gained 4kg since my last visit)

Baby haul coming up next? hmmmm... maybe. Take Care.

Blessings for you and your baby and the dad. You can use coca butter for the stretch marks.
