How Far Along: 27 Weeks
Size of baby: 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and just over 14 inches with legs extended.
Maternity Clothes: I bought some new clothes! I'm loving my new jeans, dress pants and a couple t-shirts, all from Target. It's nice to feel pretty!
Gender: This test said "girl".
I'd be thrilled with that, but I'm not buying any pink and I'm keeping focused on what we love about boys. We did settle on a girl's name though! The boy's name is down to two options: I like one, G likes the other.
Movement: All the time! It feels more like a baby and less like an alien this time around. I wish I could define the baby's position better, like my midwife can.
What I miss: Things are starting to get uncomfortable. I know it'll get a lot worse though, so I'm trying not to complain.
Sleep: Some nights are better than others.
Symptoms: On my midwife's suggestion, I stopped taking the generic prenatal from Walmart and now take a plant-based vegan prenatal. Since it's plant-based, it doesn't interfere with the other medication I take, so I can take it in the morning... Which means less heartburn! It really has made a big difference in the last few weeks. Yay!
Best Moment This Week: Deciding to keep this furniture (and imagining it with pink!):
What I am looking forward to: MAY!!!
