28 Week Pregnancy Update

28 Weeks Pregnant

I haven’t updated since #24Weeks. Overall I’m doing ok. Baby girl has some major karate chops going on in there! I’ve been dealing with some weird shoulder pain and I’m not sure if it’s from the way I sleep or if I did something. It’s been going on for about two weeks now and some days I just want to cry all day. I don’t want to jinx myself, but I do think that it’s getting better. Unfortunately, the hip problem that I have with every pregnancy is starting. When I get out of bed or up off a chair, I can’t even move my left leg for a few steps. Once I’ve forced my body about 10 steps then I can walk normally. I’m really thinking about looking for a chiropractor. I’ve never been to one, have you?

I’ve started my Holiday Baby Gift Guide and it’s really starting to get me excited that baby is coming and FAST. I should be holding her in my arms 11 weeks from today. My goal this next week is to get the girls’ room put together. I haven’t had the time to get in there and do a proper cleaning out and move furniture. We’re getting rid of Monkey’s desk and book shelf. A friend of ours gave us a loft bed. I want to see if we can put it up without the desk underneath so we can put the crib under there, but I don’t know how tall it stands yet. If not, at least Monkey will still have a place for her computer. I’m also on the lookout for a tall dresser. We currently have a wide dresser in the room (which the drawers are falling apart) and it won’t fit with a crib and bed.

It’s also time to find me some slip on shoes that will work for the winter. It’s getting a little more difficult to tie shoes (or even get them on my feet!) I tried on a pair at Meijer and they were way too slim. I know my feet will swell so I need a wide width shoe. Well, it’s time for me to get my body up and moving for the day, I have people coming over in 3.5 hours!

  1. You look fantastic!! I can’t wait to meet this sweet baby!

    My husband goes to a chiropractor a ton – and he would definitely recommend it!

  2. It seems like those weeks fly by so quickly at that point!

    I didn’t really experience any aches and pains with my first, but my second pregnancy was a different story. I’d ache all over, but a body pillow and massages helped ease the pain a little.

  3. With this last pregnancy, I couldn’t sleep on my side because i would get terrible hip pain. I was hoping it would go away, but I’m 3 months PP and I still can’t lay on my side. 🙁

  4. You look great mama! I’m a week behind you & have had the shoulder issue for a couple of months- not sure if it’s the same issue, but I have like a rib out of place next to my shoulder on my back. Apparently it’s a common pregnancy thing. 🙁 A chiro could help with that too though!

  5. I think when I was pregnant with my second one I ended up wearing slippers to work most of the time LOL! Sorry about the shoulder pain and hip that has to be hard.

  8. Awww. Look at that baby belly. Definitely go see a chiropractor. I didn’t when mine was giving me issues with the surro-baby, and it has started up the past few weeks and I wish I had had it taken care of.

  18. You look beautiful! I had my son on Nov. 25th, and my feet were huge. I found a pair of comfy slip on shoes to wear the last 2 months, finally. I really thought I was going to walk around barefooted. 🙂

  19. Ninja baby! I hope you find some relief soon; I think seeing a chiropractor (or even a physical therapist) is a great idea. A PT might be able to diagnose the problem and give you some simple exercises to keep things working.
