27 Weeks Pregnant

27 Weeks pregnant

How far along?: 27 Weeks Pregnant 

Total weight gain: Finally visited with the scale again and I am still 2 pounds down from pre-pregnancy weight. 

Maternity clothes: Yes!

Stretch marks: None. Here’s hoping this lasts.

Sleep: I have been making an effort to stretch before I head to bed and that seems to really help with the tightness and pain. All in all, sleep has improved. 

Best moment(s) this last week: This was a really good week.  I enjoyed ringing in the New Years, spending time with friends I hadn’t seen in a while,  and attending a hockey game with my hubs. And most of all making it to the 3rd trimester the middle of this week!

Miss anything?: Caffeine 

Movement: He is a very active little man. 

Food Cravings: I have eaten quite a few bowls of cereal this week. It seems to always hit the spot.

Anything making you queasy or sick?: Nothing new.

Gender: Boy!

Labor signs: Nope. Still too early for that. 

Symptoms: I think I have started to experience Braxton Hicks contractions. Nothing painful, just random tightening every now and then. Luckily they are eased with water and rest. 

Belly button in or out?: Still in but definitely on its way out. 

Wedding rings on or off?: On

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy

Looking forward to: Getting the nursery finished. I can’t wait to get all the pieces together. 

Exercising still?: We had so much snow this last week so I didn’t do too much. If the weather allows us to leave our house I will be back to it next week.

Stretch marks: None. Here’s hoping this lasts.

Sleep: This is hit or miss. Some nights are better than others.  

Best moment(s) this past week: This week marked the start of our every 2-week appointments with the doctor. The arrival of our little man is getting so close! We also made some progress on the nursery this week.

Worst moment this last week: We were covered in snow for the whole week. I am not a fan of the cold anymore. I also received a call from my doctor telling me that I technically passed my 1-hour glucose test, but since the values were close to the line and my family has a history of blood sugar issues I get to take the 3-hour test next week (boo!).

Wedding rings on or off?: On

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy

Exercising still?: Still not back in the gym as often as I would like but I am getting a few workouts in each week.
