27 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights
 
How Far Along: 27 weeks
Size of baby: About 14.5 inches long and two pounds (although he was measuring over a week ahead at my last appointment, and while that doesn't always mean anything, Avery was a pretty big baby, so I'm terrified that he'll be even bigger!)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 17 lbs. Um, yeah. I gained nine pounds between my last two appointments. That is outrageous for one month! Oh well, I've caught up to average now, so here's to hoping these gains slow down a little in the future. My appetite seems to be decreasing a little, and I remember being so not hungry when I was pregnant with Avery in the last couple of months. We'll see.
Maternity Clothes: I'm in mostly maternity clothes because I don't want to stretch out my "real" clothes, but I still wear some regular tops.
Gender: We're having a boy! Introducing.... Landon Matthew. :)
Movement: I feel lots of movement all the time; surely he can't be as active as Avery, right? I think I might be in trouble. You can seriously see my belly moving now, and it still creeps me out!
Sleep: I'm sleeping okay for now once I actually get to sleep.
What I miss: Being skinny :) Okay, so that's a little vain. Sorry.  
Cravings: I have a major sweet tooth these days. 
Symptoms: I have to pee like all the time. TMI, but annoyingly true.
Best Moment this week: Getting my glucose test over with. I haven't heard anything from the doctor, so I think at this point I'm clear. Woohoo!

At some point this week, I'll hit the 3rd trimester! I almost can't believe it's gone by so fast, but looking back it also seems like forever since we found out I was pregnant.

I also finally finished clearing out Landon's room (excluding the closet-- eek!) this week, so once we get it painted, we can start the big furniture switch!

I know what you mean. It goes by so fast, but yet so slow. Home stretch soon though!
