27 Weeks ~ Hello Third Trimester!

Date: 3/28/13
How far along? 27 Weeks
Baby Size? A head of cauliflower (approx 2.5lbs)
Total weight gain:  ~20 lbs - The nurse told me at my 24 week appointment that the weight would probably start leveling out soon! Thankfully it has, since the 2lbs a week was killing me! 
Maternity clothes? Tunics and leggings and workout clothes and a few maternity dresses 
Stretch marks? no, using baby oil, palmers and mustela
Miss Anything? Not too bad
Movement: Moving so much more now...even during the daytime
Food cravings:  chocolate 
Symptoms: feeling a little pain in my right lower back still.  Waking up several times during the night to go to the bathroom.
Belly Button in or out? in, but it's definitely more shallow now.
Wedding rings on or off? on, but definitely having swelling in my fingers especially in the mornings
Sleep:  Sleeping pretty well.  Still using the Boppy pillow even though it takes up way too much room in our bed.
Best moment this week:  Making some decisions on registry items and excited to hit the 3rd trimester
Exercise:  Walking, pilates on the reformer, Prenatal Pure Barre video
Anything making you queasy or sick: No. Happy about that!
Gender Prediction: It's a  BOY
Labor Signs: No
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to:  I have my glucose test today which I'm not really looking forward to, but hopefully it will not be that bad.   I'll be glad to have it over with.   I'm looking forward to a relaxing Easter weekend.

  1. Can't believe you are this far along already! Your little bump is adorable. I hear you on the back pain and waking up to pee. That only gets worse. I pretty much don't sleep at all at night anymore:(
