27 Weeks!

DSC_0586 How far along: 27 Weeks! Last week of my second trimester! Yikes!

Size of the baby: According to Baby Center, he or she weighs almost 2 pounds(head of cauliflower) and measures 14  1/2 inches.

Total weight gain/loss: Up 26 pounds. More than I would like? Yes. Do I care right now? No.

Maternity clothes: Yes.

Stretch marks: Old one.

Sleep: Some nights it’s good, some I don’t sleep a wink! I’m not uncomfortable yet, just can’t sleep.

Best moment this week: Spending time alone with the sweetest man on the planet, celebrating Peyton’s birthday! And sharing baby kicks with everyone in the house! :)

Movement: Lots of rolling, hiccupping and dancing around!

Food cravings/aversions: Not really craving anything too much, not enough for me to remember anyway. Greek Yogurt turned into ranch dip is pretty fab!

Gender: Don’t know. It’s hard. But I’m stubborn!

Labor signs: Still just Braxton-Hicks.

Belly button in or out: In, trying to flatten.

What I am looking forward to: Peyton’s party tomorrow, getting the baby’s room painted!

I had a doctor’s appointment yesterday. It was glucose test day. I really don’t know why people make such a big deal out of drinking that drink. I’ve done it 4 times, it’s sweet but it’s tolerable for sure. I don’t have my results yet. My doctor had an emergency before my appointment so that put him super behind. I was there for two hours. By the time I saw him the only thing I remembered to talk to him about was my heart. I don’t think I’ve said a lot about it here but it’s doing the same thing it did when I was pregnant with Peyton, it basically races a lot. It doesn’t feel good, but I have learned to manage it…I can just change positions and make it stop, and it only lasts for about a minute if that. Dr. said blood volume is at it’s peak right now and that may be causing it, if it lasts about 5 minutes to head to the ER. I’m not concerned.

My next appointment is in TWO weeks! I can not believe I’m already that far along! I’m SO excited and SO overwhelmed to get the baby’s room done…like NOW. :)
