27 weeks, almost to 3rd tri!

1 more week until my 3rd trimester! I cannot believe it! 

PICS: This is me at 27 weeks.

How far along: 27 weeks. 1 more week until 3rd tri!

How big is baby:
 The size of a rutabaga. She is practicing breathing and may start to get the hiccups! Her brain is starting to show activity and she can feel my emotions.

Total weight gain: 14lbs as of my last appointment. No clue if I've gained anymore.

Sleep: My back is starting to hurt more and more. Might have to invest in a good maternity pillow soon.

Maternity Clothes: Same stuff. Nothing new and exciting. I am getting tired of wearing the same thing all the time. 

Best moment of the week: On Monday we got to see baby girl again during our recheck ultrasound! She was super wiggly as usual and doc said she is 2lbs 6oz and I am measuring slightly ahead.

Exercise: 7.5 miles walking. 1.5 miles on the dreadmill on Wednesday with some bicep curls and 6 miles on Saturday with SacFit. Going to try at least 3 days this week.

Symptoms: Heartburn is rearing it's ugly head again...ugh...but other than that I am good to go.

: More and more each day. My belly moves like an alien is going to pop out! 

Sex: Girl! Rosalee Joyce!

What I’m looking forward to: Getting her nursery all finished! We are almost there.

What I miss: Having zero back pain. It's not horrible, but it's annoying.

Next appt: Tuesday September 4th or 11th...can't remember.

26 down, 14 to go!

Sorry this is a day late, yesterday I was at my parent's house getting my car all fixed up and shopping with my mom! Had a great day!

PICS: This is me at 26 weeks, 1 day. Loving my hand-me-down maternity clothes and my new haircut!


How far along: 26 weeks. Only 14 weeks left and almost to the 3rd trimester!

How big is baby:
 The size of a head of lettuce. She can see now, well sorta.

Total weight gain: 14lbs as of my last appointment. No clue if I've gained anymore.

Sleep: I am starting to get a bit more uncomfortable, but nothing I can't handle. Baby girl kicks me every night when I lay down on my left side, but luckily she doesn't keep me up all night!

Maternity Clothes: On my shopping trip with mom yesterday I got a new shirt and 2 pairs of jeans for about $20! Shopping with mom is the best!

Best moment of the week: When my mom and I were at Kohl's checking out the cashier lady asked if the maternity clothes were for me and how far along I was. I said almost 7 months and she said no way and that I was so tiny. It's a good moment when someone calls you tiny when you feel like a balloon!

Exercise: 8.4 miles of walking. 1 mile on Monday on the treadmill with some bicep curls too, 1 mile around the neighborhood on Friday and 6.36 miles on Saturday! Feeling great!

Symptoms: Nada, zip, zilch. I am pretty sure I am the pregnant lady other pregnant ladies hate! lol

: She is very active. More and more each day it seems. My mom got to see my belly move yesterday after we had lunch. She always moves around a lot after I eat!

Sex: Girl! Rosalee Joyce!

What I’m looking forward to: My recheck ultrasound appointment today at 1:40pm!

What I miss: Getting up easily from the couch and bed. It is starting to get a bit more difficult!

Next appt: Today!

25 weeks!

Only 2 1/2 more weeks until 3rd trimester! Time is flying by! I am looking more and more preggo everyday and it is exciting and scary all at the same time!

PICS: This is me at 25 weeks. My pants were $4 at Ross! Woo!

How far along: 25 weeks. Only 15 weeks left!

How big is baby:
 The size of a cauliflower. She is growing more fat and hair and is starting to get her equilibrium.

Total weight gain: 14lbs. Started at 174 and I am up to 188. Scary but not too bad I guess.

Sleep: Still pretty good. I am so thankful baby girl kicks me all day and seems to sleep when I do!

Maternity Clothes: Bought 2 more pairs of capris at Ross for $4 each. Planning to go to a teacher friends' house this week and raid her maternity wardrobe as well! I am excited!

Best moment of the week: Hearing her heartbeat at my appointment on Wednesday! Oh, and passing my glucose test! Yay!

Exercise: 6 miles of walking. 1.65 on Tues, 1 mile Thur and 3.22 miles on Saturday. Also did some arm weights on Thursday while I was doing my mile on the treadmill.

Symptoms: Nada, zip, zilch. I am pretty sure I am the pregnant lady other pregnant ladies hate! lol

: She has been super active! She wiggles and kicks almost all day long! It is still weird to see my belly jump!

Sex: Girl! Rosalee Joyce!

What I’m looking forward to: My recheck ultrasound appointment on Monday the 20th!

What I miss: Not

Next appt: Monday the 20th

24 weeks! 16 weeks to go!

Only 4 months left! Seems like time has flown by! My pics this week are much more attractive than last week! :D Thanks to my cousin Melanie for the cute new dress, I love it!

I am changing my categories a bit today; taking away the food ones cause they never change (I love all food!) and adding an exercise one to keep myself accountable to my good (and also pregnant) blogger friend Christina!

PICS: This is me at 24 weeks. My bump has definitely gotten bigger!

How far along: 24 weeks. Only 16 weeks left!

How big is baby:
 The size of a cantaloupe. Her see through skin is becoming more opaque, she's starting to look more like a baby than an alien!

Total weight gain: Still no clue. If I had to guess I would say 17-20lbs. Will find out on Wednesday (dun dun dun)

Sleep: Still pretty good. Getting a bit more uncomfortable. May need to start using pillows between my legs soon so my back doesn't hurt so much.

Maternity Clothes: Hit more paydirt when my cousin Melanie gave me a bunch of good stuff at her yard sale! Still needing more warm weather clothes for work, I have a ton of stuff for when it gets cooler.

Best moment of the week: Matt feeling her move! He had his head on my belly and she kicked him in the head! That's my girl! Since then she has pretty much done that to him every day, she is an active little girl!

Exercise: 7 miles of walking! I walked 1 mile on Friday and 6 miles on Saturday!

Symptoms: Nothing new really. A few more aches and pains, but nothing too bad.

: Like a crazy girl! I feel her kick and Matt does too. She is a very active little one! Makes me scared for when she's born!

Sex: Girl! Rosalee Joyce!

What I’m looking forward to: Dr. appt on Wednesday. Get to hear her heartbeat again and find out how much I have gained. Also doing my 1 hour glucose test, hope I pass!

What I miss: Wearing anything in my closet. I plan to re-arrange it today so everything in front is what O can actually wear.

Next appt:
 Wednesday after school!
