27 Weeks (8/24/12)

How far along? 27 weeks

Size of baby: Around 2 lbs and 14.4 in. About the size of a head of cauliflower

Weight gain: Around 15 pounds. Yikes!

Maternity clothes: Yes. Been wearing maternity jeans, tanks and shirts. I got a couple non maternity shirts for Fall from H&M. 2 sizes larger then what I usually wear though.

Stretch marks: Not that I can see

Sleep: Not bad this week. Allergies haven't been keeping me up at night (knock on wood) so it's just the normal up to use the bathroom 2-3 times a night. Still LOVE my body pillow. I forgot it Friday night when I stayed at Amber's and my legs and butt kept cramping. Speaking of cramping, I am now scared to stretch out my legs in the mornings. I have been getting horrible charlie horses in my legs. I had no idea what happened the first time I got them and then told my sister and she said she got them all the time when she was pregnant. Those things kill.

Symptoms: Heartburn, back aches and couple headaches this week.

Best moment this week: Getting some of her bedding! Ok so maybe it's just a sheet but the lady who is making everything had a question on the skirt so she gave me  a sheet for now and hoped to have more done this weekend.

Movement: Yep. I can tell when she is sleeping and when she is awake and she gave me a really hard kick this evening. Derek wanted to feel her kick the other day so he put his hand on my belly and told her to kick and she did!

Food cravings: Butterfingers and no bake cookies are my sweets of choice this week. I'm doing good on not eating as many sweets though. I used to tell myself it was ok to have a fun size candy bar at 9am because I don't drink coffee but now I hold off till after lunch. And I don't eat 4 in 1 day like I used to.

Gender: GIRL!!!! Collins Cate Lorson

What I miss: Sleeping on my back and stomach.

Milestones: Officially in my 3rd and last trimester!!!


  1. Totally got a HUGE charlie horse in my calf Saturday at like 5am. It woke me and I scared the shit out of Chris because I was cussing and breathing all heavy and freaking out. Those things suck!! I thought it was because I wasn't drinking enough water (because 4 stupid camelbaks isn't enough?!?!) but thankfully I can see it is just another one of those lovely pregnant things :).

  2. Can't wait to see you and that bump this weekend!! Looks like I will have to make some no bakes for ya (Brandi will appreciate this as well). Love you!
