27: Bundle of Joy

Along: 27 weeks

Size of baby:  Bunch of bananas- the cochleae have developed in baby’s ears contributing to his/her sense of hearing. Baby can control lungs and regulate body temperature.   

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 20 pounds- going strong.

Maternity Clothes: I do a mixture. I really love my two new pairs of maternity shorts. They are a game changer as we are approaching the 90 degree days.   

Gender: SURPRISE! Matt and I still think boy. Noah wants boy and Deacon now wants girl.

Movement: We had our sonogram yesterday, and all of baby’s limbs are on the right side of my body. I feel so much movement there, so it’s awesome to actually see why. Baby had his/her legs crossed just like brothers did still- talk about melting our hearts. We are already SO in love.  

Sleep: not the best. Matt bought me the sweetest box of chocolate for Mother’s day. I had a couple last night, and I’m about 100% one of them had coffee in it. I tossed and tossed and tossed and turned last night.  

What I miss: Sound sleep and high energy levels. I also have such a weak bladder this time around. It’s comical but horrible that peeing in my pants at work from sneezing/coughing has become a real fear of mine.  

Cravings: ice water, chocolate, and anything with peanut butter

Symptoms: fatigue, roller coaster emotions, insomnia, swollen feet, my limbs fall asleep way more easy (sitting Indian style, certain sleep positions).  

Best Moment This Week:  We did a girl’s camping trip on Saturday night for Ashley’s birthday. We headed out to a camp site right on the lake and enjoyed chili, s’mores, walking trails and card games. This was then followed by a spectacular Mother’s day. I told Matt I didn’t want any gifts- just not to have to cook any meals. He granted my wish and also cleaned my house! The boys were very kind and sweet. It was just a great day. I had a hard wakeup call Monday when I was back to real life. Luckily, vacation starts Wednesday!
