Pregnancy Update: Week 28

Baby is the size of: A small cabbage (17 in. 2.9 lbs)
Symptoms: Backache and frontache...who knew that was possible?
Sleep: It was going good last week, don't know what happened though. Restless mind. Also, I think the stress of moving is starting to worry me. Are we going to get it all done in time?
Fun moment this past week: Being home! Jonathan and I also had maternity pictures done for us at a dock and at the beach. It was a lot of fun to celebrate Dalton all weekend long.
Movement: I think Dalton is preparing for the boxing Olympics. It is the craziest thing to watch how active this little boy is. As I sit here writing this I am watching my stomach wiggle and jiggle all over the place (due to his movement not the fat that has creeped up on me:-). Jonathan and I just sat and watched in amazement the other night at him shifting and rolling around. It is like he is trying to say "Hey Mom, I'm doing okay! See?". I love every second of it.
What I am looking forward to this week: This week I am looking forward to being with Jonathan all alone over the weekend. Even though we are planning on starting our packing, it will be nice to just have time for us. We have more fun when we are together, little work will probably happen but we will have some good laughs no doubt.
Reflections over this past week: This past week has been a mixed bag of emotions. From being so excited to be home with all of our old friends to coming home to a gloomy, stormy Atlanta. It is never easy coming back to Atlanta and I think those feelings were definitely magnified by our situation this time. I think that by getting back into the swing of things with work and starting our packing journey will help keep our minds going. I had a Doctors appointment yesterday and I felt bad because I kind of lost it on a Doctor I had never met before. I burst into tears when he told me he had yet to receive my microarray results from the specialists office. I hate having to relive everything for every single Doctor. He was pretty understanding of my emotions and told me he would take care of everything, and get it in the proper order. Just a small example of these crazy emotions and hormones I am experiencing. Whoops.
Prayer requests: This week we ask for prayers for all of those who are continuing to pray for us. We ask that other requests do not fall by the wayside. We pray for people to continue to have hope, because without that what else do we have? We ask for prayers for a healing hand to be placed over our baby boy and for God's will to be done. I am also asking for prayers for my new friend, Kalee. She lost her sweet angel McKinley Grace to Trisomy 13 at 6 months on November 2nd. We have yet to meet, but are planning on getting together next week. I am asking for prayers for peace in her and her husbands heart.


  1. I've been talking with Kalee through emais over the past couple of months. Guess we have a small little community going on here in ATL, don't we? :) Love that you started the blog & updates!!!

  2. Therapeutic indeed! I love your blog. You will surely touch and teach many through this avenue. Love to you. Kara.

  3. Now, I am praying for you AND Kaylee. xo
