27 weeks

27 weeks collage

How far along| 27 weeks
Baby’s Size| According to Babycenter.com you should be an average of 2 lbs and 14 1/2 inches long. This week they compare you to a head of cauliflower (last week it was an english cucumber).
Weight Gain| I don’t go to the Dr. again until February 5th…so not sure.
Sleep| Off and on…I wake up about 2 times to pee and my hips kill me when I lay down. They are so sore. But, my new boppy pillow has helped quite a bit!
Clothes| Still in non maternity T’s…although I may be pushing it, and my maternity jeans. I did purchase a fancy dress for my Brother-in-Law’s wedding. I hope it still fits in a month!
Cravings| No cravings, but love blackberries, blueberries and strawberries… and pink grapefruit.
Food Aversions| Adam made some egg and toast thing yesterday for breakfast, I’m not sure what it was, but something said, “Don’t put me near your mouth, or else)
Symptoms| My hips ache and when I go on long fast walks, my thighs turn red and itch like there are fire ants all over. I also can’t eat too much because that full feeling is THE WORST.
Movement| He enjoys moving, practicing his running or swinging (im not sure). But it has become so apparent that I am now guessing which body parts I am feeling. He still likes to stay really low and to the left of my body. He pretty much is always horizontal (from what I feel).
Belly Button| Still in, although Adam likes to play with it and it looks just like the bottom of a balloon.
Baby’s Sex| Boy Boy Boy
Highlight of the Week| This is the end of my 2nd trimester. I can’t believe it. Oh, and Adam had his Daddy Boot Camp which I am sure he will write about later. 
What I miss| Being able to see my thighs…and tying my own shoes comfortably. This week I laid in my bathing suit out by the pool (in a private backyard)…and couldn’t even see my bathing suit bottoms!
