27 Weeks

Survey Time!
How far along: 27 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: (As of 01/04/11) +10.8, 215.8
Maternity clothes: All maternity.  I really need to find a pair of tights or leggings so I can wear all my dresses that I got!
Stretch marks: Another new one on my belly, this time on the right. It's still small, but I can see it starting to form. The ones on my hips from puberty are ANGRY! I've started using Palmer's Cocoa Butter lotion for stretch marks, and it is taking most of the redness, tightness, and itching away. Loving it!
Sleep: Getting worse.  I am waking up several times during the night, sometimes because of the little man...sometimes because of the big man.  Apparently I have started taking over the bed in my sleep.
Movement: Lots and lots and lots! I love it!
Cravings: Nothing weird...whatever I see an add for!
Aversions: Pretty much gone.  My love affair with food is back!
Gender: Team BLUE!!!!
Symptoms: Heartburn and Sciatica and in full force I keep a bottle of antacids in my purse, in my desk at work, in the bathroom at home and in the family room! Nose bleeds of course, although only one very minor one this week!
What I miss: Feeling "normal". I have just had the general blahs for weeks now.  Not feeling bad, just not feeling great either.
What I look forward to: Painting in the nursery and setting up furniture :-)  Hopefully some of that this weekend.
Moods: Up, down left, right, in, out....depends on the minute
Milestones: Nothing major this week...
Medical Concerns: Nose bleeds are still the big one.  I'm SO ready to be done with that.  General upper respiratory issues.
Weekly Wisdom: Take time for You!  Being super woman all the time does nothing but run you down. 
Worst moment this week: Filling on Tuesday.  The whole left side of my face was numb for almost 4 hours!  UGH
Best moment this week:  Sitting and having little man listen to daddy sing.  We got a bunch of recordings from the church A sings with and he put the songs he sings lead on a playlist on the iPad so I can put headphones on my belly and he can listen.  He was dancing away!  Love it!


  1. How are we at 3rd trimester???? LOL.

    I keep meaning to hook up sound to the belly, but haven't gotten there. Since I'm in bed, I may go there. What's great about being in bed is that I have nothing better to do than feel that awesome movement :)

  2. Oh, I so hear you on the stretch marks and being completely susceptible to ads for food!
    Rest up, you are so right about taking the time for you. I used to push through being tired, but now I know if I feel like I need a nap, I need to take it.
    Dance on!
