How far along: 27 Weeks – last week of my second trimester. Holy moly.
How big is baby: Almost 2 lbs. The head of a cauliflower, and almost 15 full inches long!
Total weight gain: +10.5lbs.
Maternity Clothes: Not a fan. I tried on a few pairs of pants this weekend, and wasn’t happy with any. So I’m sticking with the belly band as long as I can. Then maybe we’ll switch to yoga pants 😉
Sleep: Crazy dreams, but lots ‘o sleep.
Best moment of the week: Having a good laugh with my husband. Sometimes that’s all you need. In case you were wondering what the laugh was about, let’s just say the words “Papa, I pooped a little.” and “Don’t worry, I took care of it.” were involved.
Food Cravings: Still lots of sweets. I finally made my secret recipe cookies and bit into one to realize the chocolate chips were OLD. What a disappointment.
Food Aversions: I can’t think of anything.
Symptoms: A lot of waking up to pee at night (even more than usually) and I’ve been super emotional. Oh, and in a weird turn of events, it seems as though my hair growth is slowing.
Movement: The best I can describe the newest movements (the wiggling and stretching) is feeling like I swallowed a snake. Another fun thing… Baby has taken to hitching an elbow or a foot under my ribs. Doesn’t hurt yet… but I’m hoping he grows out of that before he gets bigger and stronger.
What I’m looking forward to: Sunday.
What I miss: Wine. And snuggles.
