27 Weeks Pregnancy Update
He weighs almost 2 pounds and about 14 1/2 inches long – about the size of a cauliflower
He’s sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing his eyes, and perhaps even sucking his fingers.
With more brain tissue developing, your baby’s brain is very active now. While his lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning with medical help if he were born now.
Baby hiccups are common from now on and each episode usually lasts only a few moments.
My weight gain:
Tired and sometimes cranky in the mornings.
I snack regularly and in closer intervals than before which helps keep any nausea down.
Really cold, ice water which is unusual because before I preferred room temperature water. Now I constantly carry around multiple bottles of water.
Things of Note:
I recently visited a prenatal chiropractor for some back pain that I’ve been experiencing. He said my right side was higher than my left which was what was causing it. It helped it feel better for a little while but today it hurts again so I am not quite sure what my next approach will be. Everyone has said it just comes with the territory so maybe I will just need to endure it.
I finally got a body pillow (review coming soon!) and am hoping it will help me sleep better. I feel like I need to train myself to sleep on my side and stay there all night; I am usually good about that.
I’ve scheduled a maternity shoot for next month and I am so excited to take pictures of this belly before this little guy comes. I am still in search of the perfect outfit and literally have no idea what to wear. I am leaning towards a dress though and something lacy so its more feminine. I have to dress AJ too so I really should get on that.
I love going to my doctor appointments and being able to just sit and talk about everything. I love hearing what other people have to say about their pregnancies and labor and keep thinking I need to study up a bit more on labor itself. It’s hard to dig deep into the nitty gritty but I know I’ll be grateful once the big day arrives.
At my last appointment I measured about 25 inches and everything was right on track. I still worry about him being healthy even though the ultrasound didn’t show anything abnormal. I shouldn’t worry but maybe that’s just part of being a mom. Oh em gee, I’m ‘mom,’ hahaha, that seems crazy. Oh my, I literally can’t wait to meet this little man.
