27 Weeks

How Far Along: 27 weeks (Last week of the 2nd Trimester!!) yay! Come on 3rd trimester!!

Size of baby: Head of Cauliflower



This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.

Maternity Clothes: yes! :)

Gender: It's a surprise!!

Movement: Yes, all the time.

What I Miss: Lifting things without people saying (Dont lift that!!) even if the thing is 5lbs.  I swear I my arms have gotten weaker since I have been pregnant but that will have to change when I am carrying around a newborn in a carseat. :-)

Sleep: Good! Just every few nights I get up to Pee but other than that sleep is great!

Cravings: Coffee

Best Moment This Week: Yard sale!! We sold so much at the yard sale, it made me so happy!! We have cleaned and purged.  Now to organize for baby that is the next step. :-)


What We Are Looking Forward To: My Shower this month and then I will have 2 in November!! yay!! So exciting!!
