27 Weeks

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

My baby bump at 27 weeks from the side:

And from the front:

Total Weight Gain: No change in weight this week.  Still at pre-pregnancy weight.

Movement:  Cullen's little kicks keep getting stronger!  Sometimes he catches me by surprise with a sudden kick to my side or a sudden flurry of movements.

Boy or Girl? Boy!

Food Cravings: I still would like a Bloomin' Onion...maybe this weekend.

How I'm Feeling: I feel great except for the cold I have developed over the last week.  Being sick while pregnant is no fun.  Tylenol, Sudafed, and Halls are just not cutting it.  I'm sure some honey & whiskey or just a shot of rock & rye would clear things right up...no such luck right now though.

Size of Baby: Cucumber (15 in, 2.2 lbs)  Really?  Never in my life have I seen a cucumber that long.  Where are they finding these fruits & veggies?

Baby's Development:  Baby is now being measured from head to toe, which makes him nearly a full 15 inches now.  And at just over 2 pounds, he has doubled in weight from four weeks ago.  Baby's auditory development is progressing as the network of nerves to the ears matures.  Even though the sounds he hears are muffled, he may recognize both his Mommy and Daddy's voices.  Time to start singing and reading to him!  Baby's taste buds are very developed now too, giving him the ability to taste differences in what I eat.

Best Part of this Week: Corey and I went thrift shopping for some things for the nursery this weekend.  We only ended up getting a lamp that we will repaint for the nursery, but we had a blast looking at baby things all over downtown Simpsonville.

What I'm Looking Forward To: Showers, finishing the nursery, and childbirth classes.  I feel like these next three months are going to fly by!
