27 Weeks

How far along? 27w1d
Gender: Girl
Weight Gain? 20 pounds
Maternity Clothes? Yes, definitely.  I got 2 pairs of Blanqi leggings, one with belly support and one high-waisted and they're soo comfy and definitely worth the money.  I was lucky enough to get 2 for the price of 1 on black friday!
Stretch Marks? None!
Belly button in or out?  Flattening out more and more.
Sleep:  Sleep is starting to become a little bit more of an issue.  I'm sleeping well, but waking up more often to pee again like I was in the first trimester, also noticed some congestion started so constantly having to roll over side to side to keep my nasal passages open!  I'm going to start adding Respiratory Blend or Peppermint EO to my diffuser.
Best moment this week:  My doctors appointment went well.  Blood pressure was good, all measurements were right where they needed to be.  In a few more weeks they'll check to see if she is still breech and if they can't tell we will get another scan.  I'll be starting my appointments every two weeks now which is also pretty exciting.  It just means were are inching closer and closer to her arrival.  
Worst moment this week:  Starting to feel tired a lot quicker than normal, back pain was pretty bad this weekend after possibly overdoing it on Saturday.  I've been trying to spend extra time on my yoga ball to help alleviate some of the pain.
Symptoms:  Fatigue, back pain, weight gain, some restlessness at night, other than that still pretty minimal as far as symptoms are concerned.
Miss Anything?  Nothing but a good old fashioned holiday cocktail.
Movement?  Movement continues to increase which is great! 
Cravings?  Sweets and Eggo waffles.
Queasy or sick?  Noting at all!
Looking forward to?  Another prenatal massage this week!  I am also going to be doing my blood glucose test, not that I'm necessarily looking forward to that but just something to note.  I am also getting us signed up for 3 classes, infant CPR, breastfeeding & hospital tour, and water birth in January.  I think my shower invites are going out later this week too which is very exciting!  


  1. The glucose test sucks but at least you're getting close to having your little girl here! My older sister just found out she is pregnant again and due sometime between my birthday and Jesse's, which will make her about 6 months younger than Rory. I'm so excited that Rory will have my cousin's daughter to play with (she's due a little over a month after me but will probably deliver earlier than her due date b/c of gestational diabetes and placenta previa) and then my sister's baby and that they will all be so close in age. You were so smart to start getting prenatal massages early on. That's one thing I wish I would've done differently.

  2. Ohhhh the stuffy nose! I have been using my diffuser with peppermint oil too and it seems to help a bit. Thanks for the recommendation!! Looking so cute and festive, btw!
