Bumpdate: 27 Weeks

Seriously – how is it that I am in the last week of my second trimester?? It’s like I blinked in March and life sped up quadruple time! I have so many things I want to do before she gets here… I see a bucket list in my (very near) future!

Sidenote: I was clearly not thinking about taking photos today because I wore my super comfy flats (ie. old and 'broken in') and a not so flattering dress that won't be worn again for bumpdates!


How far along: 27 weeks

Size of Baby: a rutabaga / 14", 2.5lbs

WTF is a rutabaga??

Gender: All girl all the way

Symptoms: sleepy and scatterbrained, unable to focus.

Stretch marks: so far so good.

Sleep: still sleeping really well!

Husband: has started calling Baby P his “babe-ins”

Belly Button: still completely in – maybe it won’t pop?

Movement: I feel most of her activity early in the morning (as in 5am when I make trip #3 or #4 to the bathroom) or later at night when AC is blasting cold air on me and I am about to pass out. Pretty quiet the rest of the time or I’m just not feeling it because of that who anterior placenta thing.

Cravings: this is new – I want all the clementines!! I saw a cowoker eating an apple and had an intense need for a piece of fresh fruit so another colleague gave me a clementine and that juicy goodness has imprinted on my brain. I haven't been able to buy any yet so I am literally waiting until she gets out a meeting with my fingers crossed that she has more. If she doesn’t I have no clue what I will do. Mayhem is possible. Crying is likely.

Maternity Clothes: another heat wave rolled in so dresses all day every day.

Best Part of The Week: as of tomorrow at 2:00pm I am on holidays for a week. Cabin life here we come!

Worst Part of the Week: starting the gestational diabetes testing. Boooooo.

Missing Most: sleeping through the night. And wine.

Looking Forward To: next week and all the nothing I plan to do.
