Size of Baby: (According to babycenter.com) 27 weeks: This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (about the size of 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.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I had a dr. appt. at 25 weeks and was up 19 pounds then. She was measuring 1 week ahead as she has been for a majority of this pregnancy.
Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity clothes.
Gender: Its a GIRL!!! Still nameless!!
Movement: Yes, she's moving around quite a bit now, and I love it.
Food Cravings: Still no real food cravings.
What I miss: Nothing really at the moment, other than just being able to do normal things without feeling tired or out of breath. I also miss being able to wear my wedding rings, which I haven't been able to wear for quite some time now. :-(
Sleep: Having to get up at least once a night to use the restroom and just can't seem to get comfortable sometimes.
Symptoms: A growing belly, and some sciatic nerve pain that seems to be getting worse, especially after I've cleaned the house. I'm also having a few Braxton Hicks contractions here and there and some pain under my right ribs, which I had with Jackson as well. I've also had a little bit of heartburn this last week.
Best Moment this week: Taking a family trip to Phoenix, AZ to visit a friend. It was so nice to get away from this cold, snowy weather for a few days and relax.
What I am looking forward to: Deciding on a definite name for baby girl and getting her nursery ready. I'm also looking forward to my next Dr. appt. where we'll get to schedule my c-section and have a date to look forward to meeting our sweet Baby Girl!
Here's a little comparison for you.
And for another comparison... here is a side-by-side of me at 27 weeks pregnant with Jackson and me at 27 weeks pregnant with Baby Girl.
