How Far Along: 27 weeks and 2 days
Due Date: 12/31/2016 New Year's Eve!
Baby is the Size of: A Cucumber (or a fennec fox or a camping lantern)! Baby is measuring 15" long.
Weight Gain: 19 lbs.
Symptoms: Nausea, headaches, sore sensitive boobs, bloating, moody, fatigue, lightening crotch, sciatic nerve pain, calf cramps, round ligament pain, and a little bit of heartburn. Still taking 1 morning sickness pill before bed. One day at work I had a sudden sharp pain in my lower back and it was excruciating but went away within 10 minutes. Then like two days later in the middle of the night, I started having excruciating lower back pain. Like the worst pain I have ever felt in my life. After trying a few things and not being able to find relief, I asked Jesse to get his heating pad and soon after having the heating pad on my back, I was back to sleeping. I've had it happen a few more times since then but the pain also sometimes radiates to my sides and front/ pelvis area. My mom suggested using an ice pack rather than a heating pad, so that's what I've been doing when the pain happens. I'm going to mention this to my doctor at my next appointment in one week.
Name: Rory Brielle
Movement: Yes! I usually feel her at least once a day but it definitely isn't that noticeable if I'm really busy. I usually feel her when I'm laying down. And Jesse finally felt her kick! It was a soft kick but still and then again, she doesn't kick very hard anyways.
Nursery: We're going with a woodland/ woodland critters and floral theme. The nursery is painted, the curtain rod and curtains are hung up, crib is put together, and some wall art has been put up. After I do the baby shower card heart cut out display, we can finally put her gallery wall up.
Sleep: Exhausted. I am barely functioning right now.
Best Moment(s) of the Week:
Not much really happened but we did get some cooler weather towards the end of the week which I loved! Sunday we FINALLY made a more thorough list of what we got from the baby shower to determine what we still need to get. I didn't make the list as thorough and organized as I would have liked but soon into making the list, I got very tired. Oh well, I have somewhat of an idea of what we still need but I think I need to go through the clothes again.
Cravings & Aversions: Rice (and Chipotle- that's a given), brownies, cupcakes, cookies, fruit, and fresh veggies (mainly fresh raw green peppers), chocolate, Belgian waffles, s'mores, french toast, and Olive Garden's black tie mousse cake. I'd be very surprised if Rory doesn't end up having a big sweet tooth like her mommy.
Aversions... Still the same. Grilled chicken (unless it is like overdone and crispyish), nuts, spinach & artichoke dip, and biscuits.
Mood: Very happy but getting very easily annoyed.
Looking Forward to: Working on Rory's nursery, writing thank you cards (not and yea, I still haven't gotten around to this), and working on analyzing my list of things I put on my registry, what I actually received, and what we still need to buy. That last part might not sound that much fun but I love spreadsheets! And I have a prenatal appointment (and the gestational diabetes test) and an ultrasound with the high risk specialist in one week.
Have a great week!!!
