27 weeks (Oct 7)
How far along: 27 weeks
Total weight gain: 22 lbs
Maternity clothes: I have been wearing the belly band since I was about 10 weeks. I am definitely in maternity pants, and have a couple maternity tops, but other than that i have found a few shirts that are long enough! :) I also bought my first nursing bra last week! I was excited!
Best moment of the week: I just love feeling her move and kick!
Food cravings: none this week
Food aversions: nothing
boobs sore- still there, way less prevelant though- however my nips are super sensitive, its annoying! LOL
cramps- that could be growing pains, round ligament pain, etc. My midwife wasn't concerned with it. And that is all that matters.
tiredness-I get tired easily, but thats about it.
irritability- back to normal. :)
burning muscle pain in upper abdomen- nope!
Movement: I am feeling a lot more rolls and also felt her have hiccups!
What I’m looking forward to: hitting the 3rd trimester!
What I miss: bending over with ease. :)
Next appt: Oct 24th!
How big is baby: This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.
