week 27

Holy moly, three months from yesterday is my "guess" date.  Its all creeping up on me and I feel like I have so much to do but I am not too sure what that stuff is.  I am crossing my fingers it all comes to me soon and I can get it all figured out and finished before this little baby wants to come out.  I get a little gitty thinking about life with our new addition, I am more excited now than I have been this entire pregnancy.
My friend Teri had her baby a few weeks ago and he is just so precious.  She is the first of the seven, yes SEVEN, pregnant women in our church to have her baby.  I will be the third.  
Anyway, hooray for 27 weeks.  Oh yeah, and next week will be the first week of my third trimester!!!

week 27 
baby center:
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 to be 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.

How far along? 27 weeks

Total weight gain/loss? on my last prenatal appointment the tally was 8 pounds. (I have an appointment this friday, so this will change)

Stretch marks? absolutely none (yet!).

Sleep? Sleep is getting a little more uncomfortable and a little more challenging.  I keep rolling onto my back so then I wake up with some intense lower back pain and some tight leg muscles.  I want to get a pregnancy pillow but they are insanely expensive. 

Movement? The baby moves all the time, day and night.  It favorite spot seems to be right on my bladder...

Food cravings/aversions? No cravings yet, but I can't eat raw onions without getting sick.

Gender? Its a surprise.

Labor signs? none yet

Belly button in/out? its a half outty half flatty.

What I miss the most right now:  fitting into my jeans, and getting tattooed.

What I am looking forward to: Getting the baby and our room done.

"Waist" measurement: 36.5 inches

you look so adorable! And I absolutely LOVE your home! That is the style I would love for my husband and I to have. :)

Third trimester, yay! I felt like once I hit the third trimester it felt so much more closer like "okay, start getting seriously ready now!"

oh and I ended up just getting a body pillow at target for $10 because the maternity pillows were so expensive. It works like a charm!
