How far along:27 weeks and 2 days! I thought 27 weeks was the start of the third trimester…apparently it is 28 weeks.
Baby is the size of: bunch of bananas, cucumber? (Pretty sure she was already this size…), acorn squash or a yellow turnip… She is 15 inches long and 1.9-2.2 pounds! She is now measuring crown to feet instead of crown to rump.
Total weight gain: 14 pounds
- Hemroids- thanks constipation!
- Very achy legs
- Forgetfulness aka pregnancy brain
- Really really dry nipples- can’t figure out if it’s the weather or a symptom.
Food cravings: candy 😳… Sour patch kids, gummy bears, twizzlers, kit kats… Basically everything that I shouldn’t be eating!
Anything making you queasy or sick?: nope!
Movement: yea! She seems to be feet down and has enjoyed dancing on my bladder the last couple of days. It’s quite alarming to be kicked in the bladder and then to wonder- did I pee myself?
Stretch marks: just on my boobs but those were there before!
Gender: baby girl!
Happy or moody? Happy!! Despite all my symptoms and aches and pains, I couldn’t be happier to be this pregnant!
Best moments this week/baby milestones: apparently she knows my voice!
Purchases for baby: nothing new this week.
Purchases for momma: nope, I did schedule a prenatal massage though!
The bump: growing and rock hard!
Miss anything? Wine, I’ll be honest. I stared longingly at the glass of red wine the person next to us at dinner was drinking last night.
Looking forward to? Winter break in 2 weeks! I could use a week off from my commute!
