28 week bump date

Holy cow its October 1st!! I cant believe it. This year is flying by and little man will be here in December. Im so excited, yet have SO much to do. We really haven't done much to get ready for this little guy. I finally decided that we would turn the spare bedroom into a playroom and have to boys share a room. Im not really sure what made me decide this way. But part of the reason is decorating ;) I found the most adorable saying on Pinterest  "sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero". It fits so cute, and I want to do a very subtle superhero theme in their room. The room already is blue with a red and white stripe along the top, so the colors match. We are also getting tanners old bunk beds from when he was a kid and painting them the same red as the stripe. We are also painting the crib the same color. I think it will turn out cute. Porter will spend the first few months in our room anyways. Then they will start to share. Im so excited for them to grow up with each other.

How far along? 28 weeks 2 day
Baby's size? the size of an iceberg lettuce
Total weight gain: after my doctor appointment last week im up a total of 16lbs from pre-pregnancy 
Maternity clothes? Yes ma'm
Sleep: is rough. Not gonna lie. Still getting up to pee, hard to fall asleep with heartburn. And im tossing all night because my hips start to hurt or my arms go numb or I cant breath well. only 12 more weeks! 
Best moment(s) this past week: Im pretty sure I passed my glucose test!! YAY. Doctor said the results would be in Monday and I would only hear from them if they needed to do the 3 hour test. I never heard anything so no news is good news. 
Miss Anything? Just the normal breathing, not being uncomfortable. 
Movement:  he is moving more and more. And starting to move during the day more. I love it 
Anything making you queasy or sick: nope, just still hate the look of meat.
Cravings: Cereal.
Labor Signs: nope
Gender: little man
Symptoms:  other then those mentioned still getting braxton hicks every day. and I think the first trimester fatigue is back. I have been so tired lately I could take a nap an hour after I wake up! Im pretty sure it has to do with my lousy sleep as well. 
Belly Button in or out? this crazy belly button of mine! It literally looks like the baby is only on the top half of my stomach and there is nothing in the bottom half lol. But its both, whenever I have a braxton hick, or porter pushes himself in the middle of my stomach then the whole thing pops out. Its weird! 
Wedding rings on or off? off
Happy or Moody most of the time: happy and emotional. 
Looking forward to:  Halloween! Im so excited for fall and and the holidays. We think we will be making Hudson's halloween costume this year so we gotta get on that. 
How is Hudson doing?: Even though I know he doesn't "get" it yet, I feel like he almost understands sometimes. He is so sweet with my belly, he tells everyone about Porter. He tells us all the toys he is going to share, and what animals he wants to show Porter how to be. He says when Porter crys he will say " its alright baby don't cry" lol I know things will surely be different once Porter is actually here. But its still so cute!
