Bumpdate: 28 Weeks!

Hi! Regan here :) I am officially in my 3rd trimester, and wanted to share a fun little pregnancy update!

Leggings: Albion Fit (get 15% off through Nov 14th with code SALTYBLONDES)

How Far Along: 28 weeks!

Weight Gain: +23lbs (and I still have almost 12 weeks to go so I'm kind of freaking out, but trying to embrace it)

Sleep: It's getting more and more uncomfortable, but not terrible. I wake up a lot more throughout the night (to go to the bathroom or change positions) and by 10:00 at night I am done for and am usually in bed :)  I also can't sleep in anymore, which is probably a good thing. 

Best Moment This Week: I had my first baby shower down in California! It was so perfect and I got to celebrate baby boy with some of my favorite people! 

Movement: Lots of kicks and moving around. My husband can feel the baby kick now as of the last few weeks and it's the BEST seeing his face when he feels baby move. 

Name?: No name yet! Daniel and I can't agree on any names, so we may be waiting until he comes to decide! Send boy names my way if you have any :)

Food Cravings/Aversions: No aversions. No cravings. I've always had a sweet tooth and that definitely hasn't gone away, but I feel like I've been eating pretty normal my entire pregnancy. 

What I Miss: Running! I ran my half marathon at 20 weeks then took a couple of weeks off from running. A few weeks later I tried to go on a run with Daniel and after a mile I was DONE. I started cramping and just felt too pregnant to be running.  Haha

Stretch Marks: Nope. I haven't been doing anything except lotion-ing up like I always do. 

Belly Button: It's basically an outtie at this point, which is so strange...

Mood: HAPPY! Nervous. Anxious. I couldn't be more grateful to be carrying this little boy, but so worried about him being healthy. On one end I am so content with whatever the Lord has planned for us with this baby, and am prepared for anything, but not knowing also gives me anxiety. 

What I look forward to: Thanksgiving & Christmas! I think the holidays are going to make this last trimester fly by, and then I'll look forward to meeting our baby boy!

Workout Routine: I have been able to workout my entire pregnancy, which has been such a blessing! I started going to a workout group that Sidney's BYU track coach is doing. It is SUCH a good workout. I am sore every time. It's so nice having a group to workout with and Sid's coach is so awesome. It's at 6:30am Mon/Wed/Fri at BYU and is FREE for any of you locals who want to join!

Baby: So far everything has looked normal on ultrasounds with the baby. We have been seeing a Maternal Fetal Medicine doctor since I was about 15 weeks and we LOVE her. I go to her about once a month (now every 3 weeks) and then follow up with my OBGYN who will be delivering. Because my situation is so rare, and there are actually NO recorded cases of babies being born with what our early cell-free DNA test told us our baby has, it's hard to know what to look for. BUT my MFM doctor always looks closely at all the major organs, brain, and for any physical features that might be a sign of a chromosome abnormality, and so far he looks like a healthy baby. At least that means there hopefully aren't any major problems that will require surgeries or anything like that when he's born, and as of right now my delivery plan hasn't changed. We still haven't decided to do an amniocentesis to know for sure if something's wrong, mostly because of the risks, and we just feel like it won't change anything, so we might as well just wait until he's born. We love him so much already and can't wait to meet him!
