How Far Along: 27 Weeks
Size of Baby: Cauliflower, 2 lbs
|Elyse was determined to take a picture with me today!|
Gender: My sweet baby girl, Nora Kay!
Weight gain/loss: Enough. Let's just say that I still have the possibility of only gaining 1 lb per week during this pregnancy (I'll let all of you do the math)...however, I'd wager that I'm going to go over that by a few. Let's just say that I think that 75 % of my weight gain falls between the top of my belly and my collar bone...Yeah, hello girls.
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Since passing my glucola test...YIPPPEEE!!!!...sweets & carbs have been magically making their way to my mouth on a fairly frequent basis. I'm still watching my calorie intake so I'm not going crazy...but I definitely LOVE my carbs!
Movement: Lots of it! I'm finally beginning to see some regular movement on the outside. She also likes to push her little booty up and out which feels
What I'm loving: The fact that for the most part I'm on the downhill slide part of this pregnancy. I still feel incredibly great and all the concerns regarding Nora from last week are gone. There are still some remaining medical mysteries about me, but we'll be waiting until after Nora arrives to deal with or worry about or fret over!
Symptoms: Be prepared to not have much else other than this... Boobs. Belly. Fatter Face. That is all. Throw in a little bit of back pain, some sciatic pain, and some inner thigh pain...and you can obviously tell that I'm reaching my third trimester! Otherwise I feel like a million bucks!
