How far along? 27 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: It's probably up a few more pounds due to all the cheese quesadillas and ice cream :)
Maternity clothes? Yep
Stretch marks? Sure
Sleep: It's still pretty good, although I caught a little bit of poison ivy from the hubby and it's really frustrating.
Best moment this week: Celebrating Chloe's 6th birthday (which isn't actually till tomorrow) last Friday by going out to eat and taking her miniature golfing. We also had a little birthday party for her at my mom's house on Sunday with the family.
Movement: Yeah, he's quite the little wiggler (see previous post)
Food cravings: I've been really craving ice cream lately
Gender: I'm assuming he's still a boy...should I just keep this answer every week? I'm pretty sure he won't morph into a girl! ;)
Labor Signs: I'm starting to have braxton hicks contractions...I actually started getting them a couple of weeks ago, but forgot to post about it. They don't hurt, but they're so annoying.
Belly button in or out? In...but it's stretching out.
What I miss: Nothing
What I am looking forward to: Hearing his little heartbeat at my dr. appt. next Monday.
Weekly wisdom: I'm drawing a blank. :/
Milestones: This is the last week for me to be in the 2nd trimester!
How your baby's growing:
This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.
