Week 27

How far along? 27 weeks-according to some sources, entering the realm for 3rd trimester. 

How big is baby? A rutabaga or a head of cauliflower-almost 2 pounds and 14 1/2 inches long. 

Total weight gain/loss: I'll weigh in and update tomorrow morning. I was out of town this morning. 

Maternity clothes? Still refusing to completely succumb. I did buy some more yoga pants at Costco one size up, as well as some tank tops. I also bough a lightweight hoodie at this festival I was at. The XL fits nicely, with some spare room right now. 

Sleep: Pretty awesome right. I pass out at night, and rarely wake up to pee. And, peering right after I wake up is amazing-it one of the few times I really feel like I can empty my bladder. 

Best moment this week: Making it through! I left Thursday for a high school dance festival, and got back late today. I'm thrilled to say I took (survived) 2 classes each dayb(3 on Friday!). For the most part, my soreness was not much worse than any other year. I did pay Saturday for over doing it abut on Friday, but I think it was worth it. Target started carrying Chatlie Banana Cloth Diapers. I bought a really cute one home with me today. I actually made Nick pick one out. Not surprisingly, he went with spaceships. 

Movement: Friday night he was extremely actively. I have a conflicted relationship with watching my belly move with him. It's the most bizarre yet coolest thing ever. 

Food Cravings: Nothing really. I ate more Oreos this week than I care to share, though. 

Food Aversions: Bananas. 

Gender: Boy. 

Labor Signs: None. I was afraid my Braxton Hicks would pick up this weekend, but they haven't at all. 

Pregnancy Symptoms: Dry eyes. They haaaaaaaaate me. 

Belly Button in or out? In. 

What I miss: Being able to fully throw myself into a dance class. 

What I am looking forward to: My body (eventually) being my own again. 

Upcoming appointments/events: Glucose test and 28 week appointment is March 21. Then we start going every 2 weeks. 

Milestones: Out of 2nd trimester and into the 3rd. Nick asked me last night if I felt like this pregnancy had flown by, too. I said yes, and it will continue to, until I go out of work (2 weeks prior to my due date). Then it's going to slow down to the point where time feels like it's going backwards. 

This is as good as it gets this week. When I got home today, I soaked in the tub and put on my PJs. Besides, who doesn't love tap dancing Mormons on a pregnant belly?
