27 Weeks Preggo Update


I've been so busy lately that I forgot about my one year blogiversary that was April 22!  It's hard to imagine that I've been blogging for a year since it feels like it's only been a month or two.  Thank you to everyone and anyone who reads my blog :-)  For those of you that read and/or comment, I truly appreciate all of your kindness.

On to the update:

I learned at my last appointment that my due date may be pushed a week earlier so I may actually be 28 1/2 weeks.  My baby shower is tomorrow!  I can't wait to see loved ones and celebrate little Lucas :-)

The last time I did an update was at 21 weeks and my oh my have things changed and progressed...

Weight Gain?:  I've gained a total of about 15 pounds.

Maternity Clothes?:  Same maternity clothes and, unfortunately, pre-pregnancy tops are no longer fitting well.

Symptoms?:  Lots of swelling so I'm cutting down on salt.  I have tons of rib pain which makes it hard to sleep.  More thirsty than ever.  I was having horrible tooth pain around 25 weeks.  I thought it was because of the pregnancy because I had gone to the dentist in October and no cavities were found. Well, turns out I needed a root canal.  Having a root canal done at 6 months, with little to no pain medication and numbness was awful.  Luckily, I didn't experience too much pain and it was more uncomfortable than painful afterwards.

Sleep?:  I'm only getting up once or twice but rib pain keeps me up.

Do I miss anything?:  Nope.

Movement?:  YES!!!!  He kicks allllllllllll the time!  I had to laugh to myself the other day because I was at a court hearing and he kicked from start to finish.  It was awesome :-)

Anything making you sick or queasy?:  I still can't stand air fresheners.

Food cravings?:  Nutella and apples, Japanese food, ciabatta bread with olive oil

Have you started to show?:  YES.

Boy or a Girl?:  Boy.  I thought I would have a hard time buying boy clothes since I've never done that before but now I can't stop myself!  Lucas may even have more clothes than his dad.  Baby Gap is my favorite store so far.

Best Moment This Week?:  My cousins and aunt are in town for my baby shower tomorrow!  So excited!!
