27 Weeks - Pregnancy #4
Each Monday, 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've done this with my three previous pregnancies (you can go to the search box and type in "pregnancy," or "week #" if you're interested in how my previous pregnancies progressed), 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.
How far along: 27 weeks
Size of baby: This little one is about 14 1/2 inches long (head to toe) and about the weight of a head of cabbage.
Total weight gain/loss: I'm up 14 pounds total as of my last appointment.
Maternity clothes: spaghetti strap shirts, loose skirts or summery dresses, and cute/comfy shorts, flip-flops
Gender: boy :) 💙
Movement: hiccups and big kicks :)
Sleep: Sleep has been ok; last night was rough. My back and acid reflux (my fault for eating pizza three hours before bed) would not let up.
What I miss: Lying on my back and then getting up without having to roll to the side and prop myself up first; putting on socks without thinking about how I will put them on
Cravings: peanut butter, cheese, ice cream
Symptoms: sciatic nerve (yoga helps a lot) pain
Exercise: walking a couple of times a week; 15-20 minutes of yoga 3-5 times a week
Best moment this week: getting to see him at our specialist appointment! We watched him open and close his eyes and have the hiccups :)
