Another week! We are at week 27 and chuggin’ along! My belly is still growing, I’m (finally) putting on the right number of pounds, and through it all, I’m being pampered big time! The fam has been cooking for us and buying us take-out so often that I don’t even know what I want to eat any more. We’re so grateful for everything they have done and continue to do for us. The hubs continues to take on household chores and tasks in order to keep me off my feet and from exerting too much energy. He even gave me a much needed pedicure and picked out the color himself 🙂
Some fun updates this far into the pregnancy…
Total weight gain: a whopping 21 lbs!
Maternity clothes? I can barely wear anything else. Maternity dresses=love
Stretch marks? none yet!
Best moment this week: feeling 8 kicks from Baby B this morning! Baby A kicks me all time time… we get it, Baby A, you’re a somersaulting rock star!
Movement: Baby B is kicking more and more, but mostly in the morning. Baby A is kicking all the time and sometimes tickles my ribs or moves my laptop if it happens to be nearby.
Food cravings: none, surprisingly. I actually just NEED iced water within an arm’s reach at all times.
Anything making you queasy or sick: a room temperature that is too hot
Labor Signs: I am thinking i maybe having those Braxton-Hicks contractions… I actually have been told that I’m having contractions I don’t feel… thankfully I still don’t feel them
Symptoms: achy back, tension in the shoulders, a face that looks like it didn’t get much sleep… it’s all worth it!
Belly Button in or out? officially out!
Wedding rings on or off? still on, but i’m starting to have trouble removing it. is it the heat or the pregnancy? both?
Looking forward to: Week 28!
