BUMPDATE: Week 27


Husband Notes: "The cravings are back!"
............................................................

Due date: February 11, 2019

How far along: 27 weeks; baby is showing brain activity!

Size of baby: As big as lettuce

Gender: We will be revealing the gender at our baby shower! One more week till we find out!


Total weight gain: 24 lbs.

Symptoms: Heartburn, indigestion, leg cramps, heavier breathing


Physical changes: I'm wider all over. Belly feels way bigger. Belly button is still an innie somehow.

Labor signs: Feeling the Braxton-Hicks contractions from time to time.

Stretch marks: None

Wedding ring: On


Maternity clothes: I bought a maternity support belt (by Ingrid and Isabel) from Target to elongate my regular tops. I'm hoping I won't have to buy any maternity tops - fingers crossed. The support belt is supposed to help keep your pants up too, but I don't think it's as effective for that. It does have a silicone strip at the bottom so it feels secure around your hips and prevents the belt from riding up. 


Diet: Still hungry all the time, because I've been needing to cut down my portion sizes to prevent heartburn and indigestion. I always have the urge to binge eat, but I know my body won't be able to handle it. 

Food cravings:
        • Green grapes

        • Milk
        • Soups and stews
        • Spicy foods - buffalo sauce!
        • Grape tomatoes

Food aversions: No major aversions.


Exercise: Walking on the incline trainer.

Sleep: Still sleeping pretty good. Worst dream I had this week was about Trump and politics...woke up at 4am and couldn't fall back asleep. 


Miss anything in particular: Putting on shoes without getting out of breath.

Mood: Annoyed. Happy but annoyed. Crappy weather is the worst.

Looking forward to: Thanksgiving and the baby shower/gender reveal! 1 week!

Worst moment this week: The snow. It's pretty...but awful for pregnant ladies.

Best moment this week: Shane was in St. Louis for work...worst week ever but best company ever!
