Preggy Update: 27 weeks

Monday, April 29, 2013

And now I bring you a preggy update! 25-27 Weeks

How Far Along: 27 weeks today!  This is the last week in my second trimester!

Size of Baby: Georgia is the size of a rutabaga and is headed towards being the size of an eggplant! She is about 14 inches long and weighs about 2 pounds. 

Maternity ClothesStill in the same boat.  I love my maternity jeans and shorts.  Love them.  But now that the weather has finally started warming up, I am able to wear more of my dresses and flowy tops!  Basically I just like to be comfy.  I wrote a post about dressing while you’re pregnant for my sweet friend Kate on her blog HERE.   

Stretch Marks: None yet.  Coconut oil and BioOil nightly with some Burt’s Bees Tummy Butter mixed in during the day to combat my itchiness.
Sleep: Sleeping pretty good as of right now!  Still no maternity pillow and I’m praying I keep sleeping like a babe. 

Best Moment of the Week/Past Month:  One of the best moments of the past few weeks was two weekends ago.  Matt and I were in Athens, Georgia with family because his dad was honored at a Baseball Alumni Event.  My 3 year old nephew wanted to put his hand on my belly to feel his cousin move and right when he laid his hand down she kicked hard, and I mean hard!  The look on my nephew’s face was completely priceless.  Not sure if we excited or scared.  Either way, I’ll never forget that.

 Movement:  Lots of it!  At night time, Matt and I will watch my belly move as she kicks and wiggles around.  So cool.  So crazy.

Cravings: I don’t discriminate.  I eat everything I see.

Gender: Still a baby girl J 

Belly Button In or Out: Still in!

Wedding Ring on or Off: On.

Anything Making You Queasy or Sick: Still feeling so blessed to say no!

What I Miss: Red Wine, Sushi and Spray tans.  I’m super anal about sunscreen and I’m super pale.  But those combos together and take away the option to spray tan and you’ve got one pale mama. 

What I am Looking Forward to: My babymoon #2 this week!  I’ll be posting pictures from #1 tomorrow.

Labor Signs: Nope thank goodness.  Too early for that!  

Nursery: I revealed her “plan” here and am slowly, but surely making that happen.  Slowly is key HERE. 

Emotions:  So excited!  A little overwhelmed with silly “to-do lists,” but grateful that those to-lists mean nothing and my sweet baby girl will be here soon.  Ready or not.

Also today I am guest posting over at Walking on Sunshine for Kelly while her and her hubby are off on a tropical vacay!  I’m talking about the importance of traveling when married and when you have kids.  Check it out here!

Love your travel post and could not agree more. It's so important to have the best relationship with your husband, because kids can sense that. And you want to show your kids what true love is. Traveling with and without kids is definitely a priority for us!
