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!

27 weeks pregnant


27 weeks teaching spin

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?

  2. The boy/girl myths are my favorite to play with! I was determined both mine were boys (wrong both times!), but I probably should have guessed girl! My belly right now (39 weeks 3 days) is completely a basketball. It’s amazing to me how many people come right up and ask if I’m excited for my baby boy- haha! Hopefully we will be meeting HER this week and confirm she’s a her 😉

    You look and sound wonderful- I love following your journey!

  3. Not a believer in the boy-girl myths here.

    My Mother’s Day gift arrived early this weekend, and so I suggested to my hub that we celebrate Father’s Day early, too.

    He picked out a new (fancy, easier to use) clam gun for the last dig on Sunday. He was beyond happy and madly in love with it.

    A happy clamming hub and hanging with our girl on the beach during digs makes any weekend wonderful!

  4. You look so beautiful! Love that your baby bump is showing! I have the occasional cravings and sleeplessness too– mine never went away! haha especially the waking at 2 am and staying up for an hour. The most fabulous thing about my weekend was finding out my son made the all star team at baseball, and running a 20 miler– wasn’t sure I could get past 13– guess I still have it somewhere in me.

  5. You are so darn cute! This has been such a great, healthy pregnancy for you. I will say that my two pregnancies were very different and I carried different, too. And…I had one of each! So maybe it is a boy in there!!

  6. You look great! Keep your head up and that weekend at the beach with the ladies is sure to keep you in a good mood. My highlight of the weekend was having my husband and kids hang out on a playing field while I did a run/bike transition workout. Just being able to see them/hear them, gave me a boost!

  7. You look fantastic! I can’t believe that you’re in your 3rd trimester already! I always heard that if you carry higher and it’s really round like a basketball, then it’s a boy. And if you have skin issues, it’s a girl 🙂
    Sleeping on my belly was the one thing that I really really missed while pregnant. That and sushi!

  8. I heard craving spicy food indicated boy, but we’re expecting a little girl, and I can’t get enough sriracha, chili soup, and jalapenos… and recently wanted Indian food. So there’s that. I also miss sleeping on my stomach. I’m super-grateful for my pregnancy pillow, which helps me feel like I’m sleeping on my stomach.

  9. I don’t know any of the myths – I carried 2 boys and both were slightly different when I was pregnant!
    Hopefully you are back to normal appetite again – no fun to be queasy.
    Enjoy your girl’s beach trip this weekend!

  10. The girl/boy myths for how you carry weren’t true for me. My belly was very similar both times. However, both pregnancies FELT different. I had more nausea w/ my daughter & I craved completely different things.

  11. What an article!!! I craved tons of fruit during my first trimester too. I couldn’t get enough of it. I’m 15 weeks now and have been enjoying sparkling water a lot also; which I’ve never liked before in my life!! Thanks!
