27 weeks pregnant update

Happy Monday!

When I was working full time, I dreaded Mondays but I kind of like them now.  We all get back into a regular routine and it’s a nice, fresh start to the week.  Am I the only one? Of course, I love weekends too.  This one was especially relaxing.  We soaked it up because the next three in a row are packed!

I’m linking up with Katie today to share what is marvelous.  I’m really excited to be kicking off the third trimester- I feel ready to meet this baby.  Of course, there are a few more things we need to do and it’s probably a good thing that we have 10-13 more weeks, but time is flying and I’m not complaining!

What else is happening:


How far along: 27 weeks, 3 days

Total weight gain: up 13 lbs (weight gain slowed the last few weeks- same thing happened at this stage of pregnancy with L but I know it will pick up again in the 3rd trimester)

Maternity clothes: Just starting to figure out what spring/summer items I have that will work… I’m hoping to make due with long tanks and skirts once summer hits!

Sleep: This week was rocky.  I keep waking up at 4am and then lay awake for an hour or two.  I hope it’s just a phase.

Miss anything: Sleeping on my belly!

Movement: Yes! Still my favorite part of pregnancy.

Food cravings: Nothing was appealing this week… especially if I cooked it.  All I really wanted was cereal or chocolate although I continued to eat as many healthy meals as possible. Again, hoping it’s just a phase!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing in particular but I have been feeling more nauseous this week.

Have you started to show yet: Yep! I’m carrying this baby so differently than L- I feel like I’m getting more of the “basketball” look than I did with her, which is fun.  Is that another possible sign that it’s a boy?

Gender: We’ll find out in 10-12 weeks.  :)

Happy or moody most of the time: I bounce between the two extremes of ecstatically happy and exhausted/moody.  Generally more happy than not.

Looking forward to:  A beach trip with girlfriends this weekend!


What are some of the myths about carrying a boy vs girl? Just curious.  :)

What was something marvelous in your weekend?
