27 Big Bumpdate Weeks


bump close up

 How far along: 27 Weeks (I started this post at 27 weeks and am finishing tonight at 27 weeks and 4 days… Oops)

Total weight gain: Yesterday (last week) our sales guy was in the office for the first time since the holidays. As we were chatting, he interupted himself and said, “WOW! You’re really getting big.” I barely looked up at him and said, “Yeah, you, too!” Without a smile, laugh or hint of a joke.


Maybe that was a little harsh, but he caught me in a sensitive moment (week? month? 10 months?).

Maternity clothes: I need some new stuff and don’t know where to go. I was thinking maybe I’d head over to Destination Maternity/Pea in the Pod this weekend. I think I have $50 in store credit from my last pregnancy.

Stretch marks: Body is definitely stretching, but thankfully no marks yet.

Sleep: Last night I had the weirdest dream that I could feel the baby falling and flipping when I rolled from one side to the other. I’m thinking that he was up all night squiggling (I’m not 100% sure what squiggling is, but that’s what his movements feel like. A combo of twisty pinchy movements.).

Otherwise my sleep has been okay. Definitely a lot of weird/loud dreams lately. I need to calm it down. Maybe I need to go back to reading books (instead of Facebook or Pinterest) before bed.

Best moment of this week: I had such a great weekend and a lovely time brunching with my ladies, their men and all of the babes. It just makes my heart happy. I’ll post more pics, but here’s one of all the kiddies…  

 Miss anything: not today! Today I’m feeling good.

Movement: So. Much. Movement. He’s really starting to feel giant! Tonight I felt an elbow or knee. I just love it! I feel like he’s going to be here in no time!

Food cravings: This weekend at brunch, I ate a half a donut. Mmmmmmmm. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nada. 

Have you started to show yet: I’m a walking show. 

Gender: little man!

Labor signs: Still having a pretty decent amount of Braxton Hicks contractions. But nothing real.

Belly button in or out: My belly button is getting weird. It pokes out a little, but only because it’s so stretched.

Wedding rings on or off: On, but sometimes I wish off.

Happy or moody most of the time: I’m happy today!

Looking forward to: My sweetie pie Kate is coming home this weekend for her shower! I’m excited to see her and to catch up.
