28 Weeks Pregnant

WOOT! Welcome to the 3rd trimester. Learn how to do kick counts. And how to eat your placenta???

  • Baby at 28 Weeks Pregnant 🚼

    As baby pulls into the third trimester (CONGRATS MAMA!), he's becoming a force to reckon with. Kick, bam, boom: this baby likes to move it, move it.

    Now is the time to start kick counts. What's that, you say? Kick counting is really simple, and it’s just what it sounds like. You’re counting baby’s movements to monitor how he's doing in utero. Kicks, punches, jabs, and tumbles all count; however, the little bumps from hiccups do not.

    Believe it or not, this simple practice can actually save your child's life. Here's a detailed post on how to do kick counts. Talk to your midwife or OB-GYN to learn more.

    Swelling and fluid retention are responsible for so many wonderful changes in pregnancy.

    Cankles? Check.
    Moon face? Check.
    Rings that no longer fit on your sausages fingers? Check.
    Snoring? Check-o-rama.

    I realized that my swelling had reached new heights when my husband gently suggested that I try using those anti-snore strips at night. You know, the ones that go around the bridge of your nose? I looked like a pro football player as I hit the sheets! (For what it’s worth, they did seem to help.)

    Don’t be surprised if you get sinus congestion like I did. Other women report feeling like they have water in their ears. Here’s a list of some other wonderfully weird pregnancy side effects.
