How far along? 27 weeks
Total weight gain/measurements: 16 pounds.
Maternity clothes: So the clothes arrived that I purchased and I am excited to try them on but I am trying to get back in the routine of things, since my trip to Wisconsin. I love vacationing! haha who doesn’t??
Sleep: I am sleeping as good as expected, he is very active at night.
Best moment this week: Spending time with my family back in Wisconsin and having them see my ever growing belly.
Miss anything? Nope, nada!
Movement: Tons! ! I felt hiccups for the first time this week! Funny feeling!
My mom sent me a Facebook post about this father that had played classical music to his unborn son and as a new born until two years of age. Called the Nuryl. I have recently downloaded the app. I think that it is very important for cognitive development, which can even happen in utero. We will see.
Food cravings: No real cravings, just trying to eat healthy.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Gender: It’s a BOY!
Labor signs: None.
Symptoms: I am getting some cramps in my back almost nightly but its only when I lie flat. My leg still has that one area of numbness but it doesn’t really affect me much so I have just kind of ignored it. In saying that, this pregnancy has been a breeze!
Belly button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, I had a great trip to Wisconsin! I did a little relaxing and some working. My grandma is having a reunion next weekend at her house and she had some chores that needed to get done. Rick, Rocky, my mom and I moved a bunch of decorative rock to fill in her rock beds. Help remove some huge rail road ties that were rotting an not longer needed in the area where my grandma had a garden for many many years. We also help clean out an herb garden.
Looking forward to: My doctor’s appointment next week. I get to drink a super sweet drink to test my glucose/gestational diabetes during this pregnancy.
Days to go: 91 days to go!
Baby development: Baby is the size of a head of cauliflower. He weighs 2 pounds and measures 14.5 inches. He is sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing his eyes, and perhaps even sucking his fingers. With more brain tissue developing, his brain is very active. While his lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning – with lots of medical help- is he was born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements I may feel due to a case of the baby hiccups.
