I'm really trying to get back in the swing of blogging but time has not been my friend lately. So here's the 27 Week post and some pics to hold you over!
How far along? 27 Weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: Three pounds total
Maternity clothes? Maternity pants every day and still trying to make my regular shirts work. I am hoping to buy as few maternity shirts as possible!
Sleep: Love it. Love it. Love it. Getting all I can.
Best moment this week: Hitting the third trimester!
Movement: She bounces like crazy and I can't get enough of it. I already know I'll miss this.
Food cravings: Apple juice, apples, applesauce. Anything apple.
Gender: GIRL! GIRL! GIRL!
Labor Signs: No, thank you.
Belly Button in or out? Going, going.....
What I miss: Nothing at the moment...
What I am looking forward to: Our next appt, Dec. 7. I love my OB and can't wait to see her again!
Weekly Wisdom: Make the decisions that are best for you and your family, not ones that will pacify others. How you deliver, feed and raise your child is your business. Don't let others opinions sway you from what you feel will work best for your family. (same)
Milestones: Right now, every day is a milestone. I am more pregnant than I have ever been, so everyday is a huge deal. Our goal is 40 weeks, 37 at the earliest, so every day is one day closer to our goal. (Same as all the other weeks, but still how I feel. I know this has been the same pretty much every week, but it's stiiiiiiiill how I feel)
What is Abbey up to this week?
Let your spouse put an ear to your belly -- he might be able to pick up baby's heartbeat (no stethoscope required). Inside the womb, the formation of tiny capillaries is giving Abbey a healthy pink glow. She's also soaking up my antibodies, getting the immune system ready for life outside the womb. Eyes are forming, and she will soon perfect the blink -- perfect for batting those freshly grown lashes.
All that^ stays the same until Week 28, so don't expect another fruit picture for the next few weeks!
And now for Show&Tell :)
Stay tuned for my (late) Thanksgiving post! I promise it's coming!
