Week 28 update

28 weeks update

We are at the last moment of Ramadhan and Alhamdulillah, praises to the Al-mighty, I am at the end of my Ramadhan with the little munchkin. My first time fasting all day of Ramadhan ever since I was a little girl. Thank you little munchkin for cooperating even though, there was ups and downs but it was all worth it.

Raya is approaching and this year has been such a tough time for me to find the right Baju Raya! Before this, I can just wear any type of outfits from the closet even though it is from last year, last two years. But this year, with the growing belly, I have to find some alternatives which are comfortable and do not constraint my movements. 

Let's see what BabyCenter has to say about my growing little munchkin. But a little disclaimer, every baby grows differently. 

  • He/she is approximately about 1.02 kg.
  • He/she is compared to a large eggplant. Why do you have to compare with a type of vegetable?
  • He/she measures 14.8 inches or approximately 38 cm from the top of the head to the heels. 
  • Now, he/she can blink his/her eyes. As the eyesight is developing, he/she may be able to see the light through my womb. Interesting! let's play with torch light then Mr. Afif.

Week 28 update :
  • Craving : Ice cream - Baskin Robbin's Jamoca Almond Fudge
  • Pain : right waist. Thank you Mr. Afif for massaging me 
  • Weight gain : a total of 14-15kg.
  • Clothes: love to be in maxis and skirts
  • Mood :  as usual emotional
  • Exercise : walking, pelvic tilt, squats, lunges, floor exercises, breathing technique
  • Stretch marks : Alhamdulillah, none so far. The belly lotion and oil that I have been using have been helping me
  • Swelling : I guess not yet!
  • Baby movement : very active when I am eating!
  • Fasting : Alhamdulillah going strong. Thank you for cooperating my little munchkin! Almost the end of Ramadhan! 28 days down, 1 more to go!
  • Smell : sweet smelling perfumes. I have been avoiding Lovely Lace as the stores have a very strong scent!
  • Nap : 10 - 20 mins every day when I'm in the office
  • Leg Cramps : better than last week. I think that I did not have any this week. Alhamdulillah 

Going back to north tonight and I can not wait for Raya and the food! But, I seriously got to control my portion!
