28 Weeks: Bumpdates

We are experiencing a heat wave and it makes me wish I could create a pillow fort underneath my desk and take a nap. I would love to take my Snoogle pillow to work and wrap up in it.
The third trimester has brought a little more discomfort, but the same otherwise so far. This is basically me sitting in my chair at work.
Then I go home and go to bed with my Snoogle.
Baby is growing bigger; this week she's an echidna.
She feels more like a baby gazelle or lemur the way she moves.

Greg sent a bunch of baby items in the mail. I love them all, and I can't wait till we can pick out more stuff together.
Also, our baby's alternate name, from two Doctor Who loving parents:

This is how baby feels every time I try to go for a walk.
It's a big nope. I have the same ab/muscle pain every time I walk for any distance, which grows with intensity until I am walking slower than a turtle's pace. Maybe prenatal yoga will be an option.

I baked all the cookies the past week. I have so many cookies in my house right now. I stuck the extra in the freezer for every day cookie monster moments.
These are from my favorite vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe. I usually use half coconut oil, half vegetable oil, instead of all coconut oil and I don't notice any coconut-y flavor.

I'm linking up with Kristen and Gretch today for What's New With You.

What's New With You

  6. You look so cute!! The discomfort of the third tri isn't any fun, but luckily it doesn't last forever (even though it may feel like that sometimes...)! -- Lisa | Naptime Chai

  7. Ugh, I'm sorry you've been so uncomfortable lately! The heat and humidity have been making me miserable, so I can't even imagine being pregnant and dealing with it. :-( At least you have some cute baby stuff. That makes it a little better, right?

    Also, the girl in that couch gif? I do that all the time when I'm trying to read on the couch. Haha.

  8. You look so tiny. I know you don't feel tiny, but you sure look it!
