27 Weeks

I'm 27 weeks pregnant!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: Baby is the size of an english cucumber!  And weighs about 2.2 lbs.
Total Weight Gain: Gained 21 lbs! 

Belly Growth: 11 inches.

Maternity Clothes: Oh yes!!
Gender: It's a boy! 

Movement: Lots and lots and lots!  I had a lunch meeting at work today, and he was jumping around in there the whole time!  The more still that I am, the more it seems like he moves.  My book says that it's because when I move around it rocks him to sleep.  I thought that was so interesting and made so much sense.
Sleep: I'm waking up a lot more, but I'm still getting really good sleep, so that's great!

Symptoms: I feel huge - haha!  Other than that, I'm doing great.  I'm a little uncomfortable, and his kicks and punches are starting to hurt a little, but that's all part of the process : )

Cravings: Nothing special this week.  The yellow cake is gone, thank goodness ; ) (I guess thank goodness, I mean, I did eat almost the entire cake last week...oops)
Emotions: Good this week.  I'm starting to really see the weight gain in my face and cheeks, and that part is hard, but other than that, I've been feeling good.  We are going to Dallas this weekend to see my parents and my sister, and I can't wait!!!  I miss them so very much and I just can't wait to be home!  I scheduled a 3D/4D ultrasound for Saturday, so they can see sweet baby Jaxson.  I hope we get to see his little face!!

Best Moment of the Week:  I don't think I've shared this, but hubby does NOT want to feel the baby move.  It is really weird for him to "think" about him being in there.  He is ready for Jaxson to be "here", but it's weird for him to think about him in my belly.  Anyway, we were laying on the sofa, and his leg was by my belly.  Jaxson gave one of those all star kicks, and hubby's face lit up.  I know it sounds silly, but it was a milestone in our home, and it totally made my week :)  Maybe, my month!

I hope you are all having a wonderful week!

i LOVE that Jaxson made himself just a little more known to Jeff. I just think that is awesome the way it happened. lol, OH and my Yellow cake was wonderful but unlike you I don't have a little excuse for why I hate too much of it. :/ oh well spend a little longer at the gym this weekend.
