27 Weeks

How Far Along:
27 weeks - December 8 - 14, 2013 
Size Of Baby?

A Rutabaga? Whatever that is!?

Welcome to the last week of the 2nd Trimester!! Baby should weigh around 2 pounds! Baby's retinas are developing.
Maternity Clothes?
Monday was a husband proclaimed PJ day! M had clothes laid out for me, but I wasn't able to get my PJ pants over my cast, so pajama day it was!!

Ended up getting my Pink Blush Maternity order! Loving this top:

Outfit to Wednesday's doctor appt:

Not that you can tell the shirt is a chiffon baby doll with a crocheted bust area - love this shirt and it was a steal -$6. It is also a high-low. 
The cardigan is pre-pregnancy and the leggings are maternity. 

Stretch Marks?
Still just a small one, but nothing really noticeable.
We will find out in March! We did have ample opportunity during this weeks ultrasound as the tech kept scanning over and showing us the baby's bum and bladder. We didn't "see" anything, but we also don't know what to look for. Haha

What the Doctor Had To Say:
  Baby is doing awesome! Measuring a full week and 2 days ahead and a whopping 2.7 pounds!!! This makes me feel much better should I have to have the baby early. We will be having another ultrasound around 35 weeks to help us come up with a birth plan, as my doctor still doesn't want me going over due because of my blood pressure. Assuming it remains the same we can go right up to my due date! Baby was breech so s/he also needs to flip around by then, but s/he has lots of time to do that! 

He has no concerns with my placenta functioning, which is great, so we just carry on. We go back in 2 weeks! 
We also passed the dreaded glucose test!! I am soo happy about this! I was seriously concerned I wouldn't because I am not used to my sweet tooth. But my number was perfect!! We may have celebrated with some cookies!! 

Not going so well. In fact it is horrible. I don't know if it's pain that waking me, my nose, or a combination of the above, but sleep is not happening. Thursday night was my first night of actually getting decent sleep.

Baby Purchases This Week:
I bought a bunch of muslin wrap blankets on sale!!
I also bought the soothers I tried to buy last time, but this time they were actually in stock!

Also picture above is the sweetest journal Tiny Prints sent me!! I just love how it turned out and the colors are so true to form, and will match the nursery perfect!! I plan to write monthly letters to the baby in it for the first year! But I am very impressed with the quality and over all turn out of the journal!! It also shipped soo fast!! Thanks Tiny Prints!! 
M bought the first 2 boxes of diapers!!! I told him he wins for being the first to buy diapers! He was excited until I told him what he won! First Diaper Change goes to Daddy!

Made this Week:
Crocheting - its about all I am able to do for now ;(

  I have found another project I can work on. I am going to attempt the mobile. I just have to get some supplies - which hopefully this weekend I will! 
Homemade chocolate chip cookies. The cookies I mentioned from above were not warm or homemade! But hopefully I will get some made!! 

Tried to have pork chops again this week and I couldn't eat them! Then I remembered it was like this the last time I tried them - that explains why we hadn't had any for soo long! So they are still a big no! 
  Kicks/ punches are getting stronger and stronger! 

We stopped by the fertility clinic this week to drop off our card and chocolates and happened to see everyone we worked with there, which was soo nice! Our RE put his hand on my belly and sure enough the baby gave him a big kick. M was a but jealous informing our RE that he had to wait soo long to feel anything and that he couldn't believe the baby would kick so easily for him. I told M it was probably because of the glucose drink I had earlier. Lol. But I am soo very glad we got a chance to see everyone. Won't be long before we pop back in with the baby, which they made us promise we would. 

  Like I have really popped! I actually had a stranger ask when I was due! Proud Mama moment, especially when everyone is always telling me how small my bump is.

Back aches are bad from sitting soo much and stamina is lower, as I am not able to really exercise at this time easily and boy do I feel the difference. I definitely look forward to becoming more mobile as my ankle permits. I'm walking more with air cast and without the walker, which feels like a big step forward but in small trips only. 

Reflux is back with vengeance this week. So disgusting. Needless to say tums have been my best friend and have controlled it instantly without me needing to go buy Zantac. 

    On Monday we celebrated 3 months to go and 90 days!!! 
This is the last week in the second trimester!!

Belly Button?
In, but it is getting flatter and flatter. 

Wedding Rings?
On and really loose.

Best Moment of the Week?
 Seeing our sweet baby again. 
Crazy how much bigger s/he is. Seeing the baby yawn was soo cute. 

Feeling so incredibly blessed!! 

Crazy Pregnancy Moment:
  Riding around in a scooter at Wal-Mart definitely wins the boat this week!

I told M I felt like I was waddling, as my belly is so much more out front now, and with the air cast on, it doesn't help matters. His response was: "I didn't want to say anything". Enough said. Thanks Hun! 2ish weeks left with the air cast.... 
Bump Pic:

Looking Forward To:
  Getting out of the air cast.

Tell me about Pink Blush - I love those tops! Is it just a Canadian store??

You look fantastic! I love that sono picture! Those lips are so sweet! I love that journal from Tiny Prints. I didn't even think of something like that but I may need to get on that.
