How far along? 27 Weeks 2 days
Some people consider this the third trimester, but after more reading I guess most people consider next week the third trimester. We will go with the more widely accepted theory and go with next week.
Total weight gain/loss: Ok, Confessions of a Pregnant Girl - I have gained 25 pounds. This was my goal for the whole nine months. I have 13 weeks left (if we go all the way to 40), so I should expect to gain another pound each week. This should put me just outside of the normal accepted range. My poor husband has had to deal with me being super concerned about the numbers. After this week's doctor's visit, I do feel differently about my view. Number wise I have put on weight, but before pregnancy I was training for a marathon! Doctor said to not worry because I was still on target for PERFECTLY AVERAGE! Sometimes those words are a comfort!
After reading a multitude of pregnancy blogs where the blogger is tiny, beautiful, and never ever gains more than 20 pounds, I have decided that I am over complaining about this issue. I am real! Thank you all for your continued love and support as I have struggled with this part of pregnancy. Now with three months left, I will continue to do the best I can with eating and walking, but I have to follow doctor's orders and take care of myself and the moose! :)
Maternity clothes? Elastic Non-Maternity Old Navy Sweats & a baggy cheer tank top in this picture!
Stretch marks? My stomach seems clear still, but I spotted some on my chest this week.
Sleep: I have been so worn out this week that I have been sleeping pretty well. I have started waking up earlier unintended, though!
Best moment(s) this week: We CLOSED on OUR house this week!!!!
Miss Anything? Hmm... Yes, I miss being on the beach hahah!
Movement: He likes to rock and roll!
Food cravings: Strawberry milkshake
Anything making you queasy or sick: No :)
Labor Signs: Haven't had any Braxton Hicks yet.
Symptoms: The pulled muscle is really rough right now. I am beginning to see my ankles swell, and my energy has faded.
Belly Button in or out? Well, it's funny because sometimes it's flat and others still in.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Hello Mommy Waterworks!
Looking forward to: Move! Move! Move! I cannot wait to live in our new home :) Probably helps that I am not allowed to lift anything, haha. I have the BEST husband ever!
