Baby Bump Pictures

I thought it would be kind of fun to show how much my baby bump has changed since the beginning. Here are pictures from 6 weeks til now at 27 weeks! I'll have to redo them as I continue to grow, but here's what I have so far. I didn't take a weekly picture until around 16 weeks because I just wasn't showing all that much. But I did take a few here and there before 16 weeks.

27 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 27 Weeks.

Size of Baby: The baby is weighs almost 2 pounds now (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches from head to heal.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: At my 24 week Dr. appt. I had gained 18 pounds total. The baby was also measuring 2 weeks ahead.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity clothes.

Gender: Its a BOY!! Jackson Thomas Smith

Movement: Yes, he's moving around A LOT now, and I love it.

Food Cravings: Still no real food cravings. Just anything that sounds good at the time.

What I miss: Sleeping well.

Sleep: Not sleeping very well these days. Just can't seem to get comfortable. Tossing and turning a lot. I'm thinking about getting one of those pregnancy pillows. Have any of you tried one??

Symptoms: I'm still having this pain under my right ribs and around to my back. The chiropractor seems to think its the ligaments pulling, due to my ever expanding uterus. 

Best Moment this week: On Sunday, Jackson was very active and Jake, my mom, dad and my sister were all able to feel him move. They hadn't gotten to feel it before. I also got to order a couple pieces of furniture for Jackson's nursery on Monday.  

What I am looking forward to: Getting Jackson's room ready, my baby shower on Sept. 10th and getting to meet Jackson in Oct.
