Another survey because it's Sunday and although I can't sleep I just don't have the energy to put in my effort!
Best we could do at 8am on our way out the door.
How Far Along: 27 weeks
Gender: All boy!
Size of baby: 16 in 2.5 lbs.
Total Weight Gained: no doctor's appt this week and we don't own a scale so who knows.
Maternity Clothes: still wearing a mix although I noticed that some of my non maternity shirts are starting to be too short, only a few more weeks until they are "belly" shirts.
Movement: All the time. He loves to kick when I am trying to sleep. Also I noticed that when the dogs are near he is more active, I wonder if they sense each other already?
Sleep: Blah. When I do sleep I have the most insane dreams. I never believed what people said about crazy pregnancy dreams. Here are 2 that I had last week(weird that I can remember these as well) the first was that I had the baby and he was small but had the head of the Mad Tv guy- with the red hair and big ears. Not only did he look odd but my family had a party and someone in my family made him sleep in a big birdcage-so weird. The second dream involved Nick the foodie from Bethanny Ever After. In the dream he was dressed as a belly dancer with the facial veil and the little chimes on his fingers. He was dancing and charming a really scary snake to keep it away from me. Again soooo odd. My dreams are weird almost every night and I remember almost all of them.
What I miss: Being able to eat what I want. Let me rephrase- being able to eat the things I never really ate before but suddenly want now. Ie a soda with caffeine, deli meat sandwiches(I can not do the warmed up meat, makes me gag) and soft cheeses(I'm freaked out about not having pasteurized ones).
Cravings: Fruit still and for the past few days I really wanted a chocolate chip cookie(I blame the FoodNetwork for this) but I had one today and now I'm good.
Aversions: Hmm this is tough, I'm always thinking of these things as they come but can never remember when it comes time to write them down. Here's one that might just be me being weird. I think I have spidey like senses, as in everything is magnified. I swear my hearing, my sense of smell, my sense of taste and my sight are much more intense. Today at the movies I could literally hear every breath of the guy next to me and I wanted to hurt him.
Symptoms: Had a few contractions last week that I felt for the first time. I also have started experiencing round ligament pain and it's no joke.
Best Moment this Week: Celebrating my first mother's day today even though little guy wasn't here to help us enjoy it.
I have a super busy week, we are packing up and heading to Pittsburgh for my baby shower this weekend. I can;t wait and will make sure to come back with lots of photos. Hope everyone had a good mother's day although it's over.
weekly fuzzy phone shots for you!
i swear this belly popped up overnight. there's no denying it now, there is definitely a baby growing in there :)
and because i think clothed bellies look totally different, here is a comparison
