27 Weeks

How far along: 27 weeks- welcome to the 3rd trimester baby! 

How big is baby?:
 She is the size of a cucumber this week, 15 inches and 2.2 pounds. 

Total weight gain: Ok, this is gross... I gained another TWO pounds this week... bringing my total weight gain to 18 pounds... Drew mooed at me when I told him... he's such a sweatheart. And I'm freaking out. 18 pounds... holy crap.
Maternity clothes: I discovered this week that baby girl does not like my maternity pants with the full belly panel. I guess I should have known that, since I know how she feels about things invading her space... but those are the comfiest pants i can squeeze into right now and whenever I wear them she pushes out painfully on the elastic waist part. On the plus side, an amazing woman I work with gave me a whole bunch of maternity clothes which has made getting dressed for work every morning about a million times easier. 

Best moment of the week:
 Being on vacation!!!! As of yesterday I have a whole week off to relax with my puppy and my baby. Another highlight of the week was telling my in-laws baby girl's name. They loved it and were so excited... my parents? Not so much. Oh well, can't please everyone. I love her sweet little name no matter what others think of it. Everyone else I've told it to thinks it's unusual, but a beautiful name for a little girl. 

Food cravings: Dunkin Donuts Iced Tea. OM Gee I love this stuff. I could drink it all day everyday. Bonus? It's on special for 99 cents for any size. I checked this morning at the local DD and discovered that this special goes until May 4th... SCORE. I, of course, snagged the ginormous jumbo size several times this week (and last!) which means I pee all day long, but I still love it :) Other than that I've been eating way too much Easter candy... more cause it's here than because I really crave it...that could account for those two pounds. 

Food aversions: None this week. Though the raw hamburgers Drew was prepping Thursday night made me gag... but I think that was more the smell of raw meat than an aversion issue. 

Symptoms: *Knock on wood* I haven't had any real heartburn this week. Little bouts that didn't last long, but nothing compared to what I was experiencing last week. I came to the sad realization this week that I have to cut back on my workouts. I'm pretty sure that's going to have to be a post on it's own... but it kinda sucks. Saying this might come back to bite me in the butt, but I'm amazed that I have to pee every 45 minutes during the day, but I can manage to go from 10pm until 6am every night with out having to get up. Granted, I'm not sleeping that whole time, but at least I'm not getting out of my nice warm bed to go to the bathroom. 

Movement: Little girl is active. Which I love, but she's also getting strong... which I don't love so much. I love feeling her move, but some of her kicks are starting to get painful and more blunt. At school Thursday her little foot was sticking out so far that one of the kids was staring at it with a disgusted look on her face and had to ask what it was that was sticking out of my gut. Pretty sure I scarred her for life. 

Gender: Baby girl, who now has a name :)

What I'm looking forward to: Working on baby girl's room this week while I'm home on vacation.

What I miss: Meh, nothing really... I mean yeah, I miss a good night's sleep, but I know that those days are over for a long, long time... so I'm getting over it. I know these last 13 weeks are going to go by crazy fast, so I want to just enjoy it before I'm the size of a narwhal, minus the horn. 

Next appointment: April 26th will be my 28 week

I can't believe I'm going to do this... I always thought I would never post a picture of my actual belly on the internet, but I took this picture this week, and I just have to share. It amazes me that there really is a baby in there. This is my belly at 27 weeks. Yeah it's huge and sticks wayyyyy out there, but how cool is that?
