How Far Along: 27 Weeks
Third Trimester...the home stretch!
Size of the baby: Baby R is now 14 1/2 inches and weighs in at aprox. the weight of a head of cauliflower.
Total Weight Gain/loss: Thus far 20 lbs!! I hate to type that!
Maternity Clothes: Loving the comfiness of my leggings....the best thing ever for a prego woman☺
Gender: SURPRISE!! We are not going to find out till Baby R arrives in January!
Movement: Wow...I told Chris it feels like an earthquake in there some times. Ha, recently I have noticed the difference between kicks and "rolls" or so I call it. When I can feel it literally move all the way from top to bottom (I picture it doing flips).
Sleep: Sleeping great, I have "spoken" to Baby R about when I sleep she/he does too. Thus far our little baby is a very good listener.
What I miss: Well lets see bending over. I have pretty much learned that if I don't really NEED to bend over then don't. I have about 3 kids at school who are very trained to pick up things if I drop/need it from the floor....love those kids!
Cravings: Nothing really this week.
Symptoms: Back pain still but not where all my books say it should be. Grrrr I have become bff's with my heating pad. It is just beside my left shoulder blade that kills me...grrr!
Best moment this week: Drummm roollll please! We registered with the hospital. Thus technically we could have our baby at any time...yet I would like to keep cooking he/she till January as planned. However, if something were to happen we would be good to go with the hospital. How crazy is that?
