27 weeks

How Far along? 27 weeks
Size of the Baby? My app says 2.5 pounds and 15 inches.  He is growing by the second, at least my belly appears that way.

Maternity Clothes? Yes sir.  Or Caleb’s t-shirts.  And regular, stretchy summer dresses.

Gender?  It’s a BOY.

Movement?  Yep Yep!  His movements make me so happy.  He definitely has certain times of day when he’s busier than others, like at night or early mornings.

Sleep? Not bad at all.  My friend Meredith let me borrow her pregnancy pillow, and it’s great!  I sleep with it, 2 pillows at my head, and I hold onto another pillow.

Cravings? Cold!  Ice cream, popsicles, fruit.  And chips.

Symptoms?  Just growing.  I had a few Braxton Hicks a couple days last week, but it was after a busy day at work plus walking 2 miles.  Wearing heels to work makes it worse, too.  A little rest makes them go away.  I’ve also had some trouble with my blood pressure dropping too low.

What I miss?  Being able to walk up a flight of stairs without feeling winded

Milestones?  Passing my sugar test!  No gestational diabetes here.  I’m actually the opposite…hypoglycemic.  I nearly fainted during the test because my glucose dropped so low.  Go figure.  When I take a test, I go all out.

What I’m nervous about?  How big I am.  But as long as it indicates a healthy, growing baby boy… bring on the BIG.

What I’m excited about?  Decorating the nursery!

I can't believe I'm sharing this picture, but here goes nothing.  Don't judge...Wilson is a big fella, and I did not feel like trying to have my hair down just for a beach picture.  I'm 7 months pregnant so I feel it is acceptable to look like this.

27 weeks on my 27th birthday!  Woo Hoo!

More to come from celebrating my birthday/Memorial Day at Lake Murray and Ocean Isle!

An interesting discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you should publish more on this topic, it
might not be a taboo matter but typically folks don't speak about such issues. To the next! All the best!!

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think
its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.

Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I
guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm
thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for beginner blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.
