28 weeks & Baby Shower

3:15 PM Amanda Greathouse 0 Comments

On our visit to the states, my awesome family threw me a baby shower for our soon-to-be little one! It was just around the time I was 28 weeks pregnant so the pics kinda double as a weekly belly bump pic & to show some shots from the shower!

How far along?  28 weeks
Total weight gain:   about 16 pounds
Maternity clothes?   I bought skinny maternity jeans that I'm obsessed with along with some solid tee's & tank tops that I pair with cardigans! Gosh I love fall fashion! 
Stretch marks?  Not yet & hopefully never! 
Sleep? It was rough being away from home & Greg around this time so I would wake up at random times but mostly sleeping well!
Best moment this week:   My baby shower! :) 
Miss Anything?   Wine & Amaretto Sours, & having energy to do lots of things! 
Movement?  Yes all the time! He's an active little baby! 
Food cravings:   Nothing outrageous really! 
Anything making you queasy or sick:   nope! 
Starting to show yet? Absolutely! 
Gender:   BOY!! 
Labor Signs:   NO! And I hope I don't have any for a long time! 
Symptoms:   Heartburn & baby sitting on my sciatic nerve! 
Belly Button in or out?   In
Wedding rings on or off?   On
Happy or Moody most of the time:   Happy! 
Looking forward to:  Decorating for Christmas this weekend! I'm making cutout cookies & hot chocolate for Greg & I to have while we deck the halls! 

Treats table! I love the mugs - they say "New Mom/Dad! I need more coffee! Zzz..."

All of the gifts from our amazing friends & family

My Mom & I

Me & My little sister

I had an amazing time at my shower! I got to see so many people & definitely felt the love for our growing family! I know everyone is excited to meet our little man - not as much as Greg & I but still super excited!
I managed to get the majority of gifts back to Germany in my suitcase, safe & sound without anything breaking! Now I just need to find the energy to go through it all & start organizing his room! Should probably take advantage of the time I have now before I go back to work next week! Well now to cuddle with my lovely husband a little before trying to get a decent night's sleep!
