27 Week Bump Date

How Far Along: 27 Weeks + 1 Day
(You can check out my 27 week post from when I was pregnant with Jackson here.)

Size of Baby: (According to babycenter.com) 27 weeks: This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (about the size of 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.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I had a dr. appt. at 25 weeks and was up 19 pounds then. She was measuring 1 week ahead as she has been for a majority of this pregnancy.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity clothes.

Gender: Its a GIRL!!! Still nameless!!

Movement: Yes, she's moving around quite a bit now, and I love it.

Food Cravings: Still no real food cravings.

What I miss: Nothing really at the moment, other than just being able to do normal things without feeling tired or out of breath. I also miss being able to wear my wedding rings, which I haven't been able to wear for quite some time now. :-(

Sleep: Having to get up at least once a night to use the restroom and just can't seem to get comfortable sometimes.

Symptoms: A growing belly, and some sciatic nerve pain that seems to be getting worse, especially after I've cleaned the house. I'm also having a few Braxton Hicks contractions here and there and some pain under my right ribs, which I had with Jackson as well. I've also had a little bit of heartburn this last week.

Best Moment this week: Taking a family trip to Phoenix, AZ to visit a friend. It was so nice to get away from this cold, snowy weather for a few days and relax.

What I am looking forward to: Deciding on a definite name for baby girl and getting her nursery ready. I'm also looking forward to my next Dr. appt. where we'll get to schedule my c-section and have a date to look forward to meeting our sweet Baby Girl!

Here's a little comparison for you.

And for another comparison... here is a side-by-side of me at 27 weeks pregnant with Jackson and me at 27 weeks pregnant with Baby Girl.
