27 Weeks - Third Trimester

How far along?  27w1d

How big is baby?  Rutabaga!  13.6-14.8 inches and 1.5-2.5 pounds; brain and lungs are uber busy developing.

Physical differences from last week?  I weighed 126.4 pounds on Friday morning; which is a 4 pound gain from last week (back to my weight from two weeks ago), and an overall gain of 16.8 pounds.  My belly feels BIG.  Thinking about buying a maternity support belt...   I'm wearing regular pants and shorts with the belly band, and maternity shirts and dresses.  My belly button is flat and there are no new stretch marks to report.  Hallelujah!

(Just for giggles, compare to me at 27 weeks with Lucy)

How I'm feeling?  I was very weak and lethargic through Friday, but now I feel back to my regular (pregnant) self.  All signs of the stomach bug have vanished.  My chief complaint is lower back pain; contractions are becoming more intense; and suddenly getting up 1-3 times each night to pee.  The big craving this week was for Chompie's Black and White Cookies.  I ate 6, thanks to Auntie Fallon. 

What's been on my mind?  Starting freezer cooking. 

What I'm looking forward to?  Growth ultrasound on Tuesday, which was rescheduled due to the unexpected hospital visit.  Also have my Glucose Test on Thursday.  ::fingers crossed::

Best moment this week?  Choosing a name for Babe.  It's done.  It's decided.  We love it and will share sometime this week.  We even bought the letters to decorate and hang over his crib!
