How far along are you? 27 weeks – YES THEY CHANGED MY DUE DATE AGAIN!
How I’m feeling: Great! Went back to the gym yesterday and I had so much energy during the day. At night though – my whole body hurt!
Total weight gain: Get ready… 18lbs. My doctor said that it’s totally healthy and if I stay within 25-35lbs I should be good. Anything more is no good.
Cool baby facts: Annabelle’s lungs are getting a workout and she is breathing amniotic fluid in and out. She is also eating away! I saw her “chewing gum,” which was her eating, at our ultrasound on Tuesday – it was the cutest thing ever. She also may be able to recognize our voices, so it is about time that I start singing (poor thing) and reading to her!
How big is baby? As of Tuesday she weighed 2lbs 3oz! No wonder I’ve gained weight. She should be the size of a large eggplant or cucumber.
Sleep: Every night I fall asleep later and every morning I am up a little earlier! Just getting ready for new Momma sleep hours I guess.
Maternity Clothes: I wore an extra long H&M cowl neck sweater that belongs to my sister while I was home this past weekend (as seen in the picture) and it was so comfy!
Best Pregnancy Moment this week
1. My baby shower in Connecticut. It was truly the most beautiful day I could have ever imagined. 2. Learning that Annabelle is COMPLETELY HEALTHY and has been all along. Due to the idiot doctor in Maryland, we all thought she was ‘too small’ – however, if we go by the first due date the ultrasound tech had given at 6 weeks, Annabelle is right on track.
Movement: She is transverse (sideways), so I feel her on both sides of my belly at the same time! She moves her legs and arms and I feel like I have Tigger inside my belly. I also had my first kick in the ribs yesterday and it took my breath away. Let’s hope this doesn’t become a daily thing.
Food cravings: Pumpkin and Apple everything. I am in FALL mode!
Food aversions: Raw chicken.
Belly button in or out: The doctor says my turkey timer is about to pop.
What I miss: Honestly, nothing this week.
What I’m looking forward to: Starting on the nursery!! However, it still might be a few weeks until I get to attack that room.
Randoms: Annabelle is now due December 12th. Doctor says I am on my way into the third trimester. This scares me a little… she also said that a baby can come at 35 weeks. That is only 8 weeks away! I am not ready!
