27 Week Update!

I can't believe I haven't posted since Tuesday last week.  :-(  I am so busy at work it's crazy and I am so tired when I come home that I don't want to do anything at all!  Hopefully I'll get some time for another post or 2 this week (I can barely read blogs, let alone write my own posts). 

How far along? 27 weeks

How big is baby?  2 pounds/14.5 inches!  About the length of a head of cauliflower (who comes up with this stuff?!?!).

Weight gain? 23lbs  - As much as I hate reporting this, I still will.

Symptoms? It feels as though he may be trying to make it exit out my belly button.  I can watch my stomach shift/move several times a day.

Sleep? I can't stand sleeping on my side.  I want to sleep on my stomach already.  I'm pretty sure I can't sleep on my left side because he's on my ribs and that's the pain I keep waking up with when I sleep on that side.

Food cravings? Milk and fruit.  So yummy! 

Movement? Yup!  Like I said, all over the place.

Gender?  It's a boy! 

Clothes?  Maternity Pants and some maternity tops and some regular tops.  I still have a few shower dresses to decide between.  

What I am looking forward to? Painting is done!  Furniture is put together.  Now we're in wait mode until we get more stuff.

What am I missing?  Sleeping on my stomach!  Maybe a random glass of wine!  Other than that everything is great.

Milestones? He's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing his eyes, and perhaps even sucking his fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While his lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if he were born now.

Other?  Had 26week appointment last week and was measuring on target (27 at 26.5wks).  Next week is the 28week appointment and I have to do my gestational diabetes test.  Not looking forward to that.  Heart rate was same as usual 150bpm.  A few more days until the third trimester officially starts!
