Pregnancy Journal – 27 Weeks Pregnant

27 weeks pregnant. Wow. This week was a bit rough…again. I didn’t feel well much of the week but there were some fun times, too!

Pregnancy Journal Button27 Weeks Pregnant

About Baby This Week: (from BabyCenter.com) 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. With more brain tissue developing, your baby’s brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don’t bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.

How am I feeling? I still feel like I’m fighting a cold or something more. I have little to no energy and feel weak. My lower back has been hurting really bad on my left side, too. The heartburn is still here and strong. I even started feeling braxton hicks. Not fun.

Food Cravings/Aversions: I made a mistake and tried the Cinnabon Delights at Taco Bell this week. I don’t even normally EVER like Taco Bell but had a taste for them and when I went I saw the Cinnabon Delights…well, they’ve become something I need to have often. lol

Sleep: I’ve returned to the tossing and turning every night and waking up many times. Addy has had a few rough nights too, waking hubby and I a few times so we are both a bit sleep deprived right now. I could fall asleep at any moment while writing this.

Baby’s Movement: Seems like this is a night baby. I pray she doesn’t want to stay up at night since that’s when she seems to be awake and moving the most now.

Weight: I am up two pounds!! WOOHOO! lol

Next Appointment: I now go every three weeks so my next appointment will be the week of Thanksgiving.

What happened this week? We went to the circus Thursday night and it was amazing!! My mom also visited so it was nice spending some time with her and letting the kids play with her constantly…it gave me and hubby a small break!

Something that upset me: Work. Again. I’m so tired of my job. I need a new one. Badly.

Something I am looking forward to: Thanksgiving. The food, the fun and family! (although I’m not looking forward to rushing and making sure we get to everyone’s celebrations. It will be a busy weekend but fun. Hubby and I will both be off for five days straight!!! NICE!!!!!  Cannot wait for that! Also looking forward to Black Friday/Cyber Monday. I prefer Cyber Monday because I do not like crowds. At. All.

Boy or Girl? Those strong feelings I had early on about gender proved to be right!!! We’re having a girl!!!!!!!!

Things I am doing to prepare: I have taken some pics and listed some things for sale on local area sites. Trying to get rid of what we don’t need and make some more room.

Countdown: I’m at 27 weeks pregnant, so 13 weeks to go if we go to 40 weeks!
