28 Weeks

Not too much exciting going on this past week but I did get to see my little buddy on an ultrasound today!!! My little boy is EXTREMELY stubborn and once again faced my back the entire ultrasound. At this point I am ready to give up since I get to actually meet my boy in just a few months. The ultrasound tech guy felt bad and said to come back tonight at 9 pm to try one more time- so one more time and I give up. I get to one more ultrasound at 32 weeks but I am assuming they are quit squished at that point and hard to see. Not gonna lie- a little disappointed today- but I can't blame the kid- he's comfy in there and LOVES his hands all over his face. He would wiggle his fingers but would not move them enough for us to see. He was yawning and sucking on one of his hands. I already love this little boy so much. Just wish he would show me his face dang it!

Brief Updates:

How far along- 7 months now- 28 weeks and 1 day! WOOT WOOT!

Results From Gestasional Diabetes Test: Everything looked good- whew!!!

Baby Boy: Baby is the size of a Chinese Cabbage or an eggplant :)

About 2 and a half pounds (Almost 15 inches long!)
He can Blink his eyes and now has lashes! And he is getting chunky now preparing for birth!

My sister and my best friend are throwing me a super cute baby shower in just a month! I can't wait to figure out what else I need and do the final shopping and final touches on his room. Things are slowly but surley coming together.

I did buy my breast pump this weekend. I have heard how important it is to get a good one so we went all out and got the Modella- the best pump they have. P.S Buy Buy Baby accepts 20 percent off coupons from Bed Bath and Beyond- this knocked off quit a bit on the pump!

Jonny and I did LOTS of shopping this weekend and debated and finally figured out which stroller and carseat we are getting. When we walked into any of the baby stores it all felt so surreal. Shopping together for OUR baby! Such an amazing feeling!

We decided on the Peg Pereggo carseat- we have heard and read amazing reviews- only downfall is that it's heavy. But it's safe which is the most important thing! Than for the stroller after LOTS of debating we decided the City Mini GT- it's lightweight but durable and can covert from a regular stroller for a toddler to having an infant car seat- so it will last for a long time! Those of you who know me- know that I started researching this like a year before Declan was conceived so I am SO glad to have it picked! We just have to go pick it up now! Here they are:

It looks kind of like this with an infant seat inside the stroller- this is not the same one though- but similar.
And like this for when he is a little older.
IF tonight happens to work out I will post updated pictures of him tomorrow- CROSS YOUR FINGERS for me ladies!


  1. Congrats on 28 weeks!!! Come on Declan, show Mom your face :) Good luck tonight! Oh, and I love the City Mini. My Mom surprised me with a black one this past weekend. Isn't it so crazy to have baby stuff in the house?!

  2. Yay for 28 weeks!! (and for no GD!) So cute to picture him yawning and sucking on his hands :) I hope you'll get a good face shot tonight!

  3. Sounds to me that Declan is working on his Peek-A-Boo game already! I dabbled in looking at baby gear and I really liked that car seat and what I read about it.
