oh baby! 27 weeks!

July 11, 2012 in Oh baby!

How far along? 27 weeks + 2 days. Time is flying by!

How big is the baby? He’s between 13.6 and 14.8 inches long, and weighing in between 1.5 and 2.5 pounds! The size of a rutabaga. Which is… strange.

Total weight gain? Last time I was weighed I had gained 12 pounds, but I’m definitely think I’m around the 17-18 pound mark. I’ll find out more at my appointment next week! πŸ™‚

Stretch marks? Still zero! Woo hoo!

Sleep: I’ve still got quite a bit of energy, but at night, I’m exhausted. I’ve been staying up late reading, but my body {and baby boy} has been waking up super early. I’ve been waking up before 5am — wide awake. Which is OK cause it gives me time to get things done in the morning.

Movements: The coolest thing started on Monday — he started kicking me so hard that you can actually see my belly move! πŸ™‚ And he’s constantly kicking and I love it.

Food cravings: Still beef, cheese + and root beer. And, the newest addition — cherries. We’ve gone through pounds of cherries lately. Luckily, Chad loves cherries just as much as I do. So he doesn’t mind me indulging πŸ™‚

Food aversions: Just chicken still. Yuck.

What I miss: Being able to see my legs when I’m shaving them. Now I just do it by feeling my legs; which means I miss spots a lot. Ha!

Milestones: We picked a name! πŸ™‚ We’re not telling anyone yet, but it’s {finally} been decided. πŸ™‚

27 weeks! πŸ™‚

Next week, I go for my rhogam shot and have my last monthly OB appointment — then on to bi-weekly! Holy smokes! Time is flying by!

A-freakng-dorable!! I loved the kicks. Even when I couldn’t sleep, I loved feeling my baby move. Enjoy every minute, even when you think you don’t want to. It’s amazing.
