27 weeks…which means that we hit the third trimester NEXT WEEK. Can you believe it?!
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. (via Baby Center)
Last week I’d gained 22 pounds (all together…not at once, of course) since I got pregnant. So…I’m going to assume maybe 23-24 pounds? Then again, I had a few days of nausea and morning sickness last week, so I may have actually lost a pound or two.
The same. A few nights this week I barely got any sleep. I’m reaching that phase where I can’t just roll over. I have to do that whole “lift belly, flip, and roll” type thing. Then, other nights (usually after one or two days of not sleeping well), I barely even move at night and sleep really, really deep.
Not pregnancy related, but I was interviewed by the local newspaper on Friday. They do spotlights on small businesses here on the island and they contacted me about doing a feature. It’ll fun in our local paper on Wednesday. I did start noticing tiny little baby hiccups last week. They were always fun when I was pregnant with Noah and I’ve been waiting on them to start up with Jonah. Usually it’s just 5 or 6 little hiccups in a row, but it’s still enough to make me giggle.
Also went out Friday night with some girlfriends for dinner. We hit up one of the local Sushi/Steak Houses (if you can call it that) and spent some time away from our kiddos chatting and laughing and relaxing. It was a nice break after a long and exhausting week. The sun has been out almost every day this week, too. So Noah and I have enjoyed some time outside playing and running and soaking up the sunshine. It’s been a good week.
Baby Boy!! Did you guys see the photos from our Gender Reveal Party?!
Nothing of significance this week…unless you count being able to get comfortable at night.
Today. I was supposed to have my Glucose Test last week, but my interview with the local paper and the need to get everything for that ready PLUS my it’s-never-going-to-end workload forced me to push it back a few days. Here’s hoping I don’t have to the three hour test. After that, my next appointment is September 13.
(Sorry…no cute photos of me and the kiddo today. Instead, you get just a regular ole InstaGram shot…)
