I am now 28 weeks, so here is my 27 week update.
How big is baby: Two pounds 1-2 ounces and the size of a head of cauliflower.
Weight gain: 11 Pounds
Sleep: I’m sleeping great and still only needing to get up one time to use the restroom at night; I do notice that it is more work to flip sides now.
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Nothing really different still loving grapefruits, have started drinking a few more smoothies, and lots of sparkling water since Grant got our carbonation system hooked up! 🙂
Movement: Lots of movement which is so much fun and very startling at times, she doesn’t move much for Grant so we laugh about that.
What I’m loving: Getting stuff slowly moving on the house so it is all getting closer to being more “complete.” I have lists and lists of things we would love to do,but there are a few that we would love to get done before she makes her arrival so I hope we can get those accomplished.
Symptoms: I can just tell that I’m getting bigger,but still pretty comfortable and not really feeling pregnant which is a huge blessing. I have a very low stress job, and I’m sure that this is really helping as well. I have a very deep inny belly button, and it still isn’t flat yet,but it is starting to be very shallow so that looks goofy for sure. I have never had heart burn before, so I might have had it once or twice toward the end of this week,but I’m not 100% sure what that is supposed to feel like. But just a “symptom” I might have noticed.
What I’m looking forward to: Meeting our little girl, and hopefully picking a name! We finally have sat down and looked at a few more in between breaks of working on stuff at the house,but I can’t really say that we have made much progress on that front. I’m hoping this upcoming week we can go out to a nicer restaurant and celebrate my birthday. We have been so busy that it wasn’t really on the list so maybe this week it will happen.
Thoughts: We have a lot of hosting in the coming months like Care Group this Sunday, my parents in town during Jason’s spring break, and in April for my baby shower so it is getting very exciting, and I’m glad we will have a guest room at least to house people even if not super nice set up rooms. I also need to get my hair cut before the baby arrives. Grant mentioned it because of how long it is getting, so we will make at least one trip to Nashville to see Kira and Andrew before she is born and hopefully get a cut as well.
Let me know if you have any questions!
