27 Weeks



Size of Baby: According to Baby Center, almost 2 pounds (even though we know she's probably more by now from the ultrasound) and about 14 1/2 inches long...about the size of a head of cauliflower

Total Weight Gain/Loss: (Believe it or not) Still only up about 8 pounds...I feel like I look like I've gained a lot more though!

Maternity Clothes: All the time...I'm very thankful my principal ok'd us wearing jeans until we're out for Christmas - I'm LOVING the maternity jeans right now!

Gender: It's a GIRL!  Emma Ramey

Belly Button In/Out: Still working its way out.  It's almost flat sometimes now!

Stretch Marks: None, thank goodness! But I've been very itchy...doesn't that mean your skin it stretching?

Movement: Mostly in the afternoon/evening/night, like last week.  And I for sure felt hiccups this week!  They kind of feel like mini thumps every few seconds, like when I first started feeling her, but I know they're hiccups because they come in regular intervals (every second or two).  Pretty cool!

Sleep: Ok...just can't get enough of it!

What I miss: Not much of anything!

What I am looking forward to: Being DONE with Christmas prep...it's fun to be pregnant during Christmas, but it's also exhausting!

Cravings/Aversions: I've wanted a lot of sweets...hoping my glucose test doesn't change that next week!

Symptoms: Still lots of Braxton Hicks, especially if I don't just chug water all day.  Kind of achy if I'm on my feet too much, lots of trips to the bathroom, itchy stomach.

Best Moment This Week: The hiccups were fun!
