27 Weeks (and 2 days) - Pregnancy #3

Each Sunday, I'd like to do a highlights post, including a picture, summarizing the differences in my pregnancy from week to week.  I totally "grabbed" this idea from Kelly.  I did this with my pregnancies with Hadley and with Jack, as well, and I still think it is a great way to jot down the things that I don't want to forget later on. 

Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along:  27 weeks

Size of baby:  Baby Girl is 15 inches crown to feet - the size of a cucumber

Total weight gain/loss:  I've gained 18 1/2 pounds so far.  I hate being weighed now.

Maternity clothes:  Maternity pants, shirts, skirts, and cotton shorts and t-shirts

Gender:  A baby girl who is very active

Movement:  I think she's very active.  During my NST's every week, her movements are recorded, and she seems to really be moving in there.

Sleep:  I wake up two to three times a night to go to the bathroom.  I was hoping this wouldn't hit until my last trimester.

What I miss:  Sleeping on my back

Cravings:  Chocolate milk

Symptoms:   Back aches and super tired/sore feet

Exercise: I did pilates three or four times, and Jack and I walked to the park almost every day.

Belly Button in or out:  I don't want to talk about it.

Wedding ring on or off: On :)

Happy or moody most of the time:  I'm really working on being happy.  Really working on it.  Some days are better than others.

Looking forward to: Getting the glucose test that I have to take next week over with.

Best moment this week:   The days when Jack wasn't in teething pain :(
But, look at this super sweet shot my mom captured a week or so ago!

Here's my picture for 27 weeks--it's super blurry (I feel like I'm carrying her higher than I carried Jack), so I added one below it with my niece at her dress rehearsal...I'm not standing up straight, but the belly is still pretty obvious ;)


  1. YAY, for 27 weeks!! I know you'll be glad to get the glucose tolerance test over with. I'm sure it will be fine. Just keep putting your feet up when you can. Love you.
