How far along: 27 weeks and 1 day
Sex of Baby W: still girl I presume
Weight gain: I have gained a total of 5 pounds. Looking at the pictures from my last pregnancy, I definitely think I am bigger this time around. However, I feel much healthy this time.
Size of Baby W: fennec fox or a head of cauliflower
Maternity clothes: All the time. I also stand by that they should just make all pants elastic, maternity or not. This is great!
Baby items: I haven’t bought anything lately, but I have finished our registry. I ordered our baby shower invites this week. Let’s celebrate this little gal!
Stretch marks: I have a couple , but I don’t really care. I mean they aren’t great to have, but no one is going to see them, so I don’t need to worry about it.
Belly button in or out: Well it’s like half and half. It’s kind of sticking out but it’s still flush with the rest of my belly.
Sleep: I get up at least one a night to pee. I have had some issues with stiffness and muscles cramping making it hard to get comfortable.
Best moment the past few weeks: Watching our house get framed has been pretty awesome.
Worst moment the past few weeks: Crosby got out of our fence last week. I spent more than an hour driving up and down our street with George trying to call for him. Then as I sobbed in the yard with Grace trying to find a hole in the fence (which there wasn’t), the little bugger just strolled down the driveway with the biggest doggy grin on his face. We have a temp fence in part of our yard with the construction. He had gone to the corner farthest from the house and peeled it back far enough to squeeze through, but it sprung back in place so I would never notice it in the dark. It was awful.
Miss anything: Sleeping through the night.
Cravings: Donuts. And not just any donuts, like Krispy Kreme kind. When I am not pregnant, I HATE Krispy Kreme. Also pretty much any food I see or hear talked about, I want it.
Movement: She moves the most at night. I keep trying to get George to feel her, but he won’t stay still long enough. DCW likes to sit right where her brother did, lopsided on the right side near my belly button. It makes my tummy look silly, but it’s fun to know where she is sitting.
Symptoms/how I am feeling: I have had a lot of discomfort when I am sleeping like I said. There has been a little nausea this past week. The exhaustion has returned as well; I have fallen asleep on the couch at some point every day this past week. I am still getting my steps in most days though! I am trying to stay as active as I possibly can. Some things are getting harder and harder to do, like jumping jacks. My bladder can’t take all the jumping. It feels like it is going to explode when I try to run or jump. Who am I kidding, I need to pee all the time anyway.
Looking forward to: We have a doctor’s appointment this week, and it always brings me some piece of mind to hear the heartbeat and touch base with the doctor.
And yes we are still wearing Christmas jammies.
Here is George at 27 weeks. Again, I think the bump is bigger this time around.
