27 Week Pregnancy Update





How Far Along - 27 Weeks yesterday ! :)

Gender - Girl

How Big is Baby - Big as a papaya. 14 inches long and a little over 2 pounds heavy.

Total Weight Gain - As of my last appointment 17 pounds.

Maternity Clothes- Nope, haven't bought anything yet. Just been wearing my jeans under my belly lol.

Best moment this week? I think experiencing my first round of Braxton Hicks. It's always fun to experience a new part of this 40 week journey.

Symptoms- Still get a bit nauseous especially if I eat food too fast or eat too much food.

Food Cravings- No cravings really. Sometimes I crave bbq sauce lol and so then I want fried chicken and french fries (because what goes better with bbq sauce than that!)

Food Aversions- Chinese food makes me feel sick. Powdered iced tea makes me feel sick. Actually a lot of juices make me queasy, even too much water makes me feel weird; but oddly enough soda sits well. & before I was pregnant all I ever drank was water no soda or juices at all.

Happy or Moody? I don't think my pregnancy makes me too moody. Actually I think I've been less moody since I've been carrying. I'm much more cool and calm and I let things roll off my shoulder more easily. But when I get upset I'm a lot more emotional, cry super easily. But I also get upset a lot less than I used too.

Labor Signs - I did experience my first round of Braxton Hicks. It didn't hurt at all but I can see how It could be super painful if it was stronger. I think it's amazing how God works, the way I see it that's him saying "ok, here's a taste of what's coming" lol.

Stretch Marks - No stretch marks yet. My mom doesn't have any either so hopefully that lasts.

Sleep - This week has been bad for sleep. My baby girl is growing and so I loose my breath a lot and can't sleep. It's also hard to find a comfy position depending on how she's laying.

Looking Forward too - Besides meeting her? My baby shower. Currently planning it!
