27 weeks!

27 WEEKS

HOW BIG IS BABY? 14.41 INCHES WEIGHING 1.93 POUNDS (ALMOST TO 2LBS!!)  – ABOUT THE SIZE OF A RUTABAGA

DEVELOPMENT: BABY RUSH HAS BEEN PRACTICING HER SUCKING REFLEXES ON HER THUMB IN ORDER TO PREPARE FOR BREASTFEEDING SOON! HER NEURONES AND BRAIN TISSUE ARE DEVELOPING RAPIDLY AND THE BRAIN WAVES ARE WORKING LIKE NEW BORN BRAIN WAVES. EVEN THOUGH BABY’S SKELETON IS COMPLETELY DEVELOPED, THE JOINTS ARE NOT YET CONNECTED. HER IMMUNE SYSTEM, LIVER AND LUNGS ARE STILL CONTINUING TO DEVELOP AND ARE PREPARING TO FUNCTION ON IT’S OWN. ALSO, HER TINY EYELIDS HAVE BEGUN TO OPEN AND HER RETINAS HAVE BEGUN TO DEVELOP.

WEIGHT GAIN: I’M UP 12 POUNDS NOW. IT IS ALWAYS KIND OF SAD TO SEE THE SCALE GO UP, BUT I KNOW IT’S A GOOD THING AND THAT BABY IS GROWING. IT IS JUST SO DEPRESSING TO SEE MY HIPS GETTING BIGGER AND MY ARMS FEELING THICKER. IT’S BEEN REALLY HARD FOR ME TO SEE MY BODY CHANGE SO RAPIDLY WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO DO MUCH ABOUT IT.  I AM EXCITED TO GET BACK IN THE GYM AND GET SOME GOOD HARD WORKOUTS IN! I’VE BEEN GOING TO THE GYM BUT I MAINLY JUST WALK AT AN INCLINE AND DO SOME STRETCHES AND LUNGES.

SLEEP: SAME AS USUAL. CORY HAS BEEN SO SWEET THIS WEEK AND HAS BEEN GIVING ME SOME EXTRA MASSAGES, IT HAS BEEN SO NICE!

MISSING: GOOD LONG, INTENSE WORKOUTS. OR REALLY JUST BEING ABLE TO GET A GOOD RUN IN.

CRAVING: WELL I HAVEN’T CRAVED CHOCOLATE AT ALL THROUGHOUT MY WHOLE PREGNANCY UNTIL NOW.. MAYBE BECAUSE VALENTINE’S DAY IS COMING UP AND YOU KNOW IT’S ALL ABOUT CHOCOLATES! I DON’T KNOW WHY, BUT IT’S A GOOD THING THAT WE DON’T HAVE A LOT IN THE HOUSE!

FEELING: I FEE LIKE A BIG FAT BLOB TO BE HONEST. UGHH I’M TIRED OF IT, MAYBE IT’S THIS COLD WEATHER THAT WE HAVE BEEN GETTING, IT MAKES ME WANT TO STAY INSIDE AND NOT DO ANYTHING. I SHOULDN’T COMPLAIN THOUGH, I KNOW THERE ARE MANY OF YOU OUT THERE WHO ARE IN BELOW FREEZING WEATHER WITH A FOOT OF SNOW ON THE GROUND, WHILE I’M COMPLAINING ABOUT SOME 45 DEGREE WEATHER THAT WE’VE BEEN DEALING WITH FOR A FEW WEEKS NOW, BUT MAN AM I TIRED OF IT.

GENDER: GIRLY!

BEST MOMENT OF THE WEEK: I DON’T REALLY HAVE ONE PARTICULAR MOMENT THAT I LOVED THIS WEEK, BUT WE HAD A NICE LONG WEEKEND WITH MLK DAY AND MY STUDENTS (I’M A SEMINARY TEACHER) HAD LAST THURSDAY AND FRIDAY OFF AND CORY DIDN’T HAVE ANY PATIENTS FROM MONDAY UNTIL TOMORROW SO WE HAVE GOTTEN TO SPEND A LITTLE EXTRA TIME TOGETHER. I LOVE SPENDING TIME WITH HIM, WE ALWAYS HAVE A GOOD TIME TOGETHER AND HE IS ALWAYS SO SWEET TO ME! *SORRY FOR THE SAPPINESS* BUT I JUST LOVE HIM TO PIECES! HE IS GOING TO BE SUCH A GREAT DAD.

LOOKING FORWARD TO: JANUARY TO BE OVER AND FOR IT TO WARM UP A BIT! I ALSO LOOK FORWARD TO THOSE ‘GOOD MORNING’ KICKS FROM MY BABE IN THE MORNING, SHE ALWAYS KNOWS WHEN TO SAY HELLO! :)

Cory and I had a little craft day on Sunday and painted some onesies for baby! I also got her carseat this week as well. I loved the simple and modern look of this UPPAbaby carseat.
