27 Weeks!

How far along? 27 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: Up 6lbs
Baby's Fruit Size: Rutabaga  (Baby is 2.2lbs)

Sleep: Sleeping lots. Getting it all in now ;)
Best moment this week: Spending time with Daddy during his time off, painting your new room, and dwindling down your possible name.

Miss Anything? Cold medicine, Daddy got me sick again and oh how I wish for some Nyquil or a hot bath.
Movement: Lots of pops and kicks
Food cravings/aversions: I was craving a PB&J all week. Finally ate one today.
Symptoms: Heartburn, braxton hicks, and some sciatic pain. I also threw up again a few times, but hopefully thats a fluke.

Signs of Labor: Not really though I have been having a few Braxton Hicks

Looking forward to: Finishing your nursery and putting together your furniture.
Your baby's lungs and brain are beginning to mature. Although he'd have a good chance of survival if he were born now, he could use a few more weeks of growing. Added layers of fat are continuing to form. These layers will help your baby regulate his temperature once outside the womb and help keep him warm.
Remember to count your fetal movements. Every fetus has its most active times (and often it's late at night when you are trying to catch a few zzzzs!). During his active periods, your baby should move 10 times an hour. Choose an hour, and mark each movement on a piece of paper. If your baby hasn't moved 10 times, drink some juice and count again for another hour. You should call your doctor if the baby hasn't moved at least ten times during any two-hour stretch.

This is the color we painted your room, with a white beadboard on the bottom.
