27 Weeks. Woot! AKA, Hello 3rd Trimester

How Far along: 27 weeks, 4 days

Baby size: According to my ticker, she weighs over 2 pounds.

Total weight gain: +11 pounds.

Maternity clothes: Yep.  

Sleep: Mmmm, sleep. Although deep sleep is getting harder to come by.

Best Moment this week: My birthday :-).

Movement: Yep :-) All.The.Time.

Gender: GIRL!

Labor signs: None, really, though BH contractions are getting more frequent and I had some non-BH contractions last night after "the maritals" and OMFG. Ouchie. Fortunately they went away after about 45 minutes, but ow. Not in a hurry to experience those again until the real deal, though they gave me an excuse to practice relaxing around the pain.

Belly button: The top is still working it's way out. It's *lovely*.

Cravings: Donuts and chocolate. And ice cream. Honestly, how I have only gained 11 pounds is a mystery.

What I miss: Bending over, being able to use my abs/sit up from reclining easily. Feeling like a normal person. Being able to reach things in cabinets/the sink without my belly getting in the way. Sex being possible and pleasant without awful RLP during and contractions afterward. :-(

Stretch Marks: More have joined the ranks. And I'm getting a rash on the sides of my belly where the new stretchies end. *Joy* I'm going to be asking my MW about that on Friday, I really hope it isn't PUPPPS again.

What is different this time around: Pretty much everything still, including weight gain, cravings, and the scariness of my naked belly.

What I am looking forward to this week: MW appointment on Friday. Whee!

It's snowing. I wanna go home and curl up with my dogs and read a book.
