Pregnancy: Week 27

DATE: September 23, 2010

How far along: 27 weeks
Total Weight Gained: 22 pounds…I am starting to have an issue with this…and I know that I should not, but it is just so hard! I looked at a weight gain calculator on babycenter.com. It told me that I was 6 pounds heavier than I should be right now. Boo….I guess that I need to start being a little bit more careful with what and how much I eat! I didn’t have a problem losing the baby weight after Blake was born, and I hope that I do not again…but I am worried!

How big is baby: From parents.com: Baby's Length: 9.25-9.50 in., Baby's Weight: 2-2.25 lbs., Baby's Size: Sock Monkey

Maternity Clothes: Yes! Wearing maternity pants, but still regular shirts. I am wearing a regular dress today as well.

Sleep: sleeping good…just waking up 4+ times to go to the bathroom! I am still having some crazy dreams!

Best Moment of the Week: Starting the 3rd trimester!

Movement: yes…all of the time. Ryan can feel it often…and you can see it from the outside too!!

Food Craving: oh just EVERYTHING…I am very hungry…and just could eat and eat (this is NOT good)!! Esp. Mexican food.

Food Aversions: not really anything

Morning Sickness: nope….

Gender: It’s a GIRL!!...

Symptoms: Itchy skin…I have been putting lots of lotion on the belly…but it is stretching (no stretch marks thankfully)!
What I miss: feeling skinny…I hit a wall last night, and was feeling icky about my body. I hope that it is a phase b/c I still have 13 more weeks to go!! It’s just so hard when you really have no control of your body!

**I hate to sound like this, b/c I know that it is best for the baby...but I am just being honest!! It's hard for me...

What I'm looking forward to: Starting to work on the nursery….PINK :) and my doctor’s appt. next Wednesday. It is the sugar test (which I am not really looking forward to…but one step closer!)

Love your baby bump! :)

I think that would be the hardest part for me is gaining weight but for good reason.

I know everyone says this and it sounds cliche but you look GREAT! I know it is hard to see it right now but you are going to look back on these pictures and see how great you look later. I wish you could take a look at yourself the way WE see you!!

and PS: if you can "see" the baby moving in your belly -- you should definitely take a video! We want to see!

You look fabulous girl!!

I thought I started following your blog a while ago. I was wondering why none of your post were showing up in my google reader. I am a moron because apparently I never started following! BUT I am now! lol!

Hope you have a great day!

I love the scarf just resting near the belly---so adorable. Growing little girl! I wouldn't stress about the weight...you'll shake it!

You look great! I love your scarf, great colour!

Enjoy your pregnancy and eat what your want! When do you ever get the chance to do it again!?

Ugh, the sugar test. Fun!

If it makes you feel any better, I'm only 22 weeks and have gained more than you! You still look great and think about how much of that weight is baby and fluids, you'll be down over 10 pounds as soon as she's born. But believe me, I know how you feel. I'm always telling my bf how fat i feel, and I have a long way to go1
