27 Weeks

27 weeks
How far along? 27+ weeks
Baby’s size: around 14.8 inches long (compared to a chinese cabbage) and about 2.25 pounds
Total weight gain: 20 pounds
Clothes: Jeans are AG Adriano Goldschmied from A Pea in the Pod. Cardigan is Target. Tank is from Old Navy maternity (bought second hand…it’s a lot shorter than my other Old Navy tanks and I was pulling it down all day).
Workouts – Last week (April 21 – April 27):
  • 4 mile walk
  • 1 hour prenatal yoga
  • hours of cleaning: dusting, putting things away, mopping, sweeping, scrubbing…all related to us basically packing our up our entire house up so we could have new wood floors installed and then the entire house painted. Everything I put away had to be wiped off first! I still have the guest room to put back together and a couple more pictures to hang. If someone wouldn’t mind coming to clean my ceiling fans, clean my windows and scrub the oven that would nice…I can pay in wine that I can’t drink right now 🙂
Symptoms: I’ve been sleeping like a baby this past week. I don’t toss and turn and there was even a couple of nights that I didn’t get up to pee in the middle of night…so weird.
Movement: Travis finally felt the baby kick this week!!
What I’m eating: This really hasn’t changed: yogurt/granola/fruit bowls, frozen yogurt, tacos. I like to have a Kind bar or Think Thin Protein bar in the afternoons when I’m running on empty. I tend to have a bar and fruit (last week it was cantaloupe, navel orange or cherries) or I’ll eat lemon hummus and rice crackers. I can’t get enough seared salmon…had it twice this week.
Drinking:. Kombucha. Water. Lots of unsweetened iced tea with lemon. Nepresso decaf coffee.
Last week: Work on the house was completed including touch ups. After 3 weeks of contractors and dust I’m ready to be done with that for a while. Our house is feeling more and more like home. Travis even complemented me on having the vision to make the design decisions that I did. Very nice of him to notice!
Looking forward to: My next doctor appointment! It’s technically my “28 week” check-up but I’ll be 29 weeks. It’s a 3 1/2-4 hour event that will include the glucose test, an ultrasound to check on my low lying placenta previa and my regular checkup. I hope, hope, hope that the placenta has moved on up where it’s supposed to be!
