27 weeks

How far along: 27 weeks
General feeling: Good, I think that second trimester energy is running out. Friday I worked a half day, and came home and slept for hours. I had nothing to be exhausted from. Yesterday I was worn out just from walking around my in-laws back yard... not boding well for the next few months ahead.
Boy or girl: Boy.
Weight gain: up 14 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight.
Maternity clothes: still half and half, so thankful for my belly band.
Innie or outie belly button: Innie, but still just barely.
Rings on or off: On without any problems.
Braxton Hicks: None except for on Wednesday of last week... that was a doozy.
Movement: Things had been pretty quiet lately, but the past couple of days have felt like nonstop movement. There aren't as many huge kicks, but so many little pokes, flutters and wiggles. And I'm able to see my stomach move during the bigger movements now, which is kind of cool and kind of like a horror movie.
Cravings: This past Sunday, I made a caprese grilled cheese for Trevor and myself with mozzarella cheese, a sliced up tomato and pesto. It was amazing and I've been wanting to make another one ever since.
Sleep: Pretty good, the weather's cooling off a little here, but my nightly pee trips have started back up again. You win some, you lose some.
Best moment of this week: the long weekend! I know it's technically not fall yet, but I've already put my string of fall leaves up on our fireplace mantle and am getting out the Autumn wreath for our front door today. I've been stopping in Bath & Body Works to smell their fall candles for weeks now, and I'm so excited.
Looking forward to: The chillier weather that should be on it's way soon! I can't wait for sweater weather and I already have a recipe for pumpkin scones ready in my kitchen. Also, I have such a list of things I want to get done around the house before the baby gets here, and I am so ready to tackle that list.

  1. You look great - enjoy your pregnancy! I know sometimes it feels miserable, but growing a life is such a blessing at the same time. This will sound really weird, but I miss being pregnant!

    And congrats in advance on your baby boy! Mine just turned 18 months and every second of motherhood is truly a gift. It's frustrating at times, but the good times SO outweigh the bad.Stopping by from Mommy Moments.
