Bumpdate | 27 Weeks

Bumpdate | 27 Weeks

How Far Along?:  27 Weeks! This is our last week in the second trimester! I'm blown away with how fast this pregnancy is going by.

Weight Gain: 18 lbs so far.

Gender?: It's a GIRL! I'm gettin so excited to see what she will look like!

How Big is Baby?: Baby girl is the size of a head of lettuce! She's now 14.4 inches long and 1.93 lbs, we are so close to hitting that 2 lbs mark! She's now breathing in amniotic fluid and her brain is showing activity. She's getting smarter and smarter by the day.

Symptoms:  This week has been sorta crazy. I started having contractions that were noticeable and VERY uncomfortable. I was a little concerned when I was having them frequently so I went to L&D to be checked and turns out I have an irritable uterus. Good news is there is no progression. Other than that my muscles are just sore and I've had a few leg cramps. I've also had one or two dizzy spells and want to eat EVERYTHING.

Any Food Cravings?: Anything hearty. Seriously ALL. THE. FOOD.

Sleep: I'm actually sleeping much better but I'm also going to bed later. Since I'm on vacation though I get to sleep in with no interruptions and I'm trying to soak that in as long as possible haha!

Stretch Marks?: Nothing new over here, my old ones are just getting more purple and noticeable.

Maternity Clothes?: Yes! I am still able to wear my lululemon leggings though so that's nice!

Wedding Ring On or Off?: On!

What Do You Miss the Most?: Being comfy and sleeping on my back. My back and hips have been hurting pretty bad this week.

What Are You Most Excited For This Next Week?: I'm SO excited to go to our HD live ultrasound that we have scheduled this week. We also get to visit the San Diego Zoo which will be so much fun!

Labor Signs?: I had those contractions (which I'm still having) but cervix is still closed so that's great! I was told to just say hydrated and rest as much as I can.
