27 Weeks

27 weeks! 
And I've reached my third and last trimester! Where in the world has time gone? The first trimester defiantly lasted longer than the second, so I'm hoping the third flies by. Can't wait to meet our little girl!
Baby is the size of a head of cauliflower and weighs about 1 and half pounds give or take. By now she is opening her eyes and can sense another question, will her eyes be brown like her daddy's or hazel green like mine?! Time will tell! 

How far along are you? 27 weeks

Cravings: Defiantly prefer sandwiches in wraps for some reason. And ice cream. Caleb and I went to a local creamery…and they make the BEST ice cream. It’s so creamy and better than soft served which is what I was originally craving.  So now all I want is cookie dough ice cream with rainbow sprinkles. 

Weight Gain: +18 lbs…that’s what I was at at my last appointment. So until I go again I won’t know.

Favorite moment this week: Shopping for her, and we decided on what colors we want for her nursery! 

Fears: Feeling anxious about being in labor. Hoping that I can be a good mom. And being prepared for her. I had a dream the other night that she was born, but for some reason we just had a baby shower and all of her stuff was everywhere. 

General mood: Is tired a mood? Because I’m so tired. My body never got the energy memo. Therefore, when I’m exhausted I’m just pretty moody and rather be alone. Which is unlike me. I would always rather be around people! 

Sleep: I hate this one…I just can’t seem to be able to sleep well. 

Things I was surprised by: How comfortable maternity clothes are. Seriously, if you are pregnant, invest in some maternity clothes. I think people who say they don’t want to buy them are crazy…like regular clothes just aren’t as comfortable at all. 

Things I am most looking forward to: Caleb and I’s birthdays are this month, so I’m defiantly looking forward to both of those.  Our last birthday celebrations before becoming a family of three! 

What I think is really cool and crazy:  That I’m in my third trimester! The second trimester defiantly went by so much faster than the first. Most likely because I wasn’t as sick. But I’m just getting so anxious and excited to meet our little girl. I hope the third trimester flies by too! 

Food Aversions:  Grilled chicken & turkey…just please don’t offer those to me. I’ve been better about stomaching veggies. Except corn, avocado, and carrots. Those three are just gag worthy. I have a feeling that I won’t be eating the foods I hate now for quite some time, even after she’s born. Before I got pregnant, if a food ever made me sick I wouldn’t eat it again.

Maternity Clothes:  Yes! Even though I love knowing I can wear my regular jeans, the material just isn’t comfortable at all. So I FINALLY found jeans that fit! I highly recommend A Pea in A Pod jeans! They are made to fit smaller sizes and are super comfortable. I also got another shirt from the same company because it was to cute to pass. 

Gender: Little Princess!
