27 Weeks

*Sorry for the headless photo, it's been a makeup-free kind of a week around here.

How far along?  27 weeks.

How big is the baby this week?  Head of cauliflower / 14 1/2 inches long.

Total Weight Gain?  16 pounds. 

Maternity Clothes?  Yes, although any and all maternity pants get exchanged for pj pants the second I get home. 

Best Moment of the Week?  DOMINATING our to do list. After weeks of feeling like we were just spinning our wheels, we got so much done this weekend.  We are ripping out the floors in almost half of our house (nursery included) and we finally decided on and ordered the wood.  We also got his room painted thanks to my awesome parents. It's such a good feeling to see progress being made. 

Trouble Sleeping?  Still decent although I have starting having leg/foot cramps this week. Sometimes I feel like I read these pregnancy updates where it says "you may start to feel some cramping in your calves" and my body is like "oh, fantastic idea! I hadn't thought of that!" because this stuff always seems to start happening right on cue. 

Miss Anything?  Not really this week.  Maybe just normal pants. Maternity pants are starting to annoy me.

Movement?  Tons. 

Food Cravings?  Carbs and sweets. We went on a donut run on Saturday which nicely fulfilled both of those cravings. 

Belly Button - In or Out?  In, kind of. It's definitely starting to give way. The top half is poking out but the bottom half is holding on for dear life. I give it another two weeks.

Symptoms?  Hungry! We ate dinner last night and 30 minutes later I had to have a bowl of cereal. I finally went out and bought some healthier snack options since our pantry is so loaded up with cookies. 

Wedding Ring - Off or on? On

Happy or Moody?  Happy for the most part. We attempted to make pizzas on the Big Green Egg on Saturday which as it turns out, is the most impossible thing ever. I was already starving and I may have screamed at the pizza dough in a fit of hangriness. I think I may have scared my husband a bit.

Looking Forward to?  Our last sono next week!  I didn't realize that your last one is typically at that 16-20 week appointment unless there's a need for another one. Since I have partial placenta previa, we have to go in for what should be the last time to see if everything has corrected itself. I'm obviously hoping everything looks good, but the silver lining if not is continued sonograms. It's been two and half months since our last one so I can't wait to see how much he's fattened up!
