Since I was gone for a few weeks, I´m playing catch up a little bit with the pregnancy posts. I´ll just answer the questions for this week and then show the pictures from the last few weeks!
How far along: 27 weeks
Due date: 1/16/12
Gender: BOY! Lucas Alexander will be his name <3
Symptoms: Still just occasional sciatic nerve pain (lower back)
Total weight gain: About 16/17 pounds I think...
Food cravings: Nothing really
Food aversions: None, really
Movement: Lots, especially in the morning and at night, I love feeling his kicks and Abe can feel them now too! And I like watching my belly move when he kicks :-) I love it when he gets the hiccups too, so cute!
Stretch marks: None so far, thank goodness...
Maternity clothes: Most definitely, this belly is continuing to grow and regular clothes just don´t really fit anymore!
Sleep: Not nearly as great as it used to be :-( I´m a stomach sleeper, which is impossible at this point in the pregnancy, so I rotate between my two sides with tons of pillows surrounding me and between my knees. I also get up to use the bathroom anywhere from 3-5 times a night...
Belly button–in or out: On the verge of popping out, I think it will happen soon!
Best thing that happened this week: Getting the results back from my 3 hour Glucose Tolerance Test...no Gestational Diabetes for me!!! :-) Also, coming back home to my husband and kitty after 3 weeks away
Any baby-related purchases this week: Stroller, carseat, gym/play mat, diapers, breastfeeding supplies, crib sheet...lots of new stuff!
Milestones reached: 3rd Trimester!!! And about 90 days until this little guy makes his appearance! :-)
What size is the baby: According to the Bump, he´s about the size of an eggplant, weighing about 2 pounds and about 15 inches long
What I miss: Wine, playing soccer, dancing Zumba, eating cold deli meat sandwiches, sleeping on my stomach
What I am looking forward to: Getting over being sick, a good friend´s bridal shower and upcoming wedding, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.
