27 weeks...

i didnt even realize i missed last week!!!! we were in the mtns for thanksgiving :)

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far along? 27 weeks 1 day

Size of the Baby? head of cauliflower, haha

Maternity Clothes? yes

Gender? girl!

Movement? moving a lot more, lately!! love it :)

Sleep? Still about the same. Wake up twice to go to the bathroom. Toss and turn a little more than normal.

Cravings? dove chocolates! had to have them the other day! orange juice!!

Symptoms? still some back pain. a little bit of tenderness on my belly sometimes. i asked the doctor about it today and she said thats probably from where the baby kicks me at night and it's forming a small bruise, or where she's been huddled up in one "corner" for too long and it gets a little sore. also, starting to see little signs of heartburn here and there. maybe she's getting some hair!! :)

What I miss? just being able to get comfortable. that's starting to get more and more difficult.

Milestones? WE'RE IN THE THIRD (and final) TRIMESTER!! I had my glucose test today!! and i didn't pass out!! Hallelujah! Baby girl is measuring on target and i go back in 3 weeks.. then start every two weeks! Cra-ZAY! I can't wait for her to get here :)

Weight Gain? gulp....14 lbs!!! eeeee

What I’m nervous about? L & D

What I’m excited about? mom and some friends are coming over tonight to work on some arts and crafts projects for the nursery! next wednesday we are going back to the 4d ultrasound place to see what/who she looks like! I cant wait to see her again :) some of you may have seen the post i did about the rug yesterday... then i deleted it. because mom and matt hated the rug. it was a little over powering but i was willing to see what it was going to look like once window treatments, etc. were in their place. we've decided to take the rug back and we're getting new carpet installed in the whole room which we're actually more comfortable with anyway bc lord knows how long that carpets been in there and baby girl needs to breath in nothing but healthy air! :)

Baby Center Update for Week 27: This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals,opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle
