Week 27 Update

How far along? 27 weeks today!

Size of baby? Head of cauliflower. 

Baby Development This Week: Her eyes have opened! She is also regularly sleeping and waking. 

Total weight gain/loss: Still sitting around 16 lbs.

Maternity clothes? I was very excited to put on my leggings and pair one of my cute flowing tops to go to my appointment this week.  

Stretch marks? Still none. 

Sleep: I'm finding I wake up about every hour from midnight to 4 or 5, and then can usually get a solid 3-4 hours of sleep before getting out of bed. Sleep has never been one of my strengths. 

Best moment this week: Feeling her kick so much {sometimes she will get the hiccups and head butt me. This is less cool.} Also, reaching 27 weeks! Still celebrating every single day. Little girl's chances of survival if she was delivered at 23 weeks was only 30%, but now we are up to 90%! {This is mostly due to her lungs being mature enough now to survive with medical assistance.} I am officially done with 4 weeks of modified bed rest and haven't gone insane yet. 9 more weeks to go! 

Miss Anything? My family is at the beach this week and I really wish I could be there. Missing great company, the warm beach breeze, and fantastic food.    

Food cravings: Something sweet after lunch. Probably has something to do with the fact that our fabulous office staff at work always has a candy jar that we raid every day after lunch. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Salads. I cannot bring myself to eat any leafy greens right now unless they are cooked in some form or fashion. A cold salad right now makes me want to throw up. 

Symptoms: L shoulder pain is back - ugh. 

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! No breakdowns this week. Happy to pass my gestational diabetes screening. Happy that baby girl is kicking away. 

How much are you showing? Plenty! But still it's all belly. My pup has seemed to notice {see picture at right.} 

Labor Signs: None this week! Another celebration. 

Belly Button in or out? Still neutral - not in, not out. 

Wedding rings on or off? On but getting tighter in the mornings. Going to keep a close eye on this one. 

Looking forward to: Finding more crafts and variety of activities to do this week. Yesterday I spent the whole afternoon crocheting a diaper cover for the heck of it. Why not?
