Okay…didn’t we just write about 26 weeks like, yesterday?
Sheesh! Baby Tooth is just over 27 weeks today and is about the size of a head of cauliflower.
And just for fun, here’s what I looked like in this same top at about 16 weeks…
Talk about a difference, huh?
Here’s what Baby Tooth has been up to this week:
- Baby Tooth weighs almost 2 pounds and is about 14-1/2 inches long with his legs extended.
- He’s sleeping and waking at regular intervals…yes he is! Little guy is most active between 8-10pm at night, and also seems to be pretty active shortly after I eat breakfast. Although this past week, I feel like he’s partying it up all day long.
- He’s opening and closing his eyes, and perhaps even sucking his fingers (aww!).
- With more brain tissue developing, your Baby Tooth’s brain is very active now.
And here’s what’s been happening with me this past week:
Weight gained: No idea, but I’m gaining…some of my pants are starting to feel a bit tighter around the thighs.
Workouts: Again…now that we’re talking about last week, I already forgot exactly what workouts happened. BUT, if my memory serves me correctly, I clocked in at about 4 for the week – some treadmill, Pilates, and cardio/strength DVD’s. Not too shabby, I’ll take it!
- Still some stomach discomfort, but nothing crazy.
- Still back pain, which I anticipate will be here to stay from here on out…
- Acid reflux, that comes and goes, although I can’t seem to figure out if there’s anything in particular that causes it.
- A bit of a bloody nose…eww, gross.
- Still staying close friends with the bathroom.
Movement: All. The. Time. Looooove it!
Food Aversions: Shrimp still grosses me out. Hot coffee does not sound appealing either.
Food Cravings: Lots of the same from last week…Mexican, cold foods, cereal, burgers, chocolate, and carbs. Lots of carbs.
Sleep: Surprisingly well. There were even a few nights where I didn’t have to get up at ALL to go to the bathroom, which was crazy.
Stretch marks? Nada!
Miss Anything? Nothing out of the ordinary…although being able to bend over to tie my sneakers used to be a whole lot easier, that’s for sure.
Fun and/or Interesting Things from the Week: Well, we’ve got our baby shower dates in place, which are both happening at the beginning of June. We also made a little extra progress on the nursery by replacing the closet doors.
All we have now, really, is to finish up the trim work, put up the chair rail, and find a ceiling fan. Other than that, it’s really just décor…which is a whole other beast of an issue.
Basically, I can’t find a set that I love. And if I do love it, it either costs more than I want to spend or comes with extra pieces that I really just don’t need. At this point, I’m actually thinking it might just be easier to purchase items separately…all I need is a quilt, a bed skirt, some sheets, and some curtains. We’ll see how that goes though…I’m not the best at having an “eye” for that sort of thing!
I’ve also recently been into looking at photos of fellow bloggers around the same time of pregnancy as me. For the most, I’ve come to the conclusion that I have one of the biggest bumps at 27 weeks out of all that I’ve seen…
I don’t quite know how to feel about that?! Baby Tooth, are you going to be a monster or what?!
Belly Button in or out? Still in, although my major indent is getting a little shallower.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Definitely happy the majority of the time, although there was my major sob fest that happened last Wednesday. That was actually triggered over the fact that Jay was going to be gone for the weekend, and I didn’t want to be left alone…go figure!
New Baby Items: Just the little baseball onesie from Target. So cute!
Looking Forward To: Oh man, I don’t know…everything?! Nursery, baby showers, maybe actually deciding on a name (we’re STILL up in the air…), seeing just how big this baby bump grows…and FINALLY getting to see our little man
Question for the Moms:
Do you/did you feel like your bump was big/small/average throughout your pregnancy? Did it have any correlation to the size of your bundle of joy when he/she was born?
