What was YOUR favorite moment of the week?
How far along: 27 weeks – I’m in the THIRD trimester! AH!
How big is baby: About 2.5 pounds and about 15 inches long (or so)
Weight gain: About 25 pounds
Sleeping: Coming and going. Honestly still not great. I had a HORRIBLE night’s sleep the other night… Once I woke up I just couldn’t go back to sleep.
Food cravings: Peanut butter and jelly sandwich
Food aversions: None really
Symptoms: Back pain. Headaches. Dizziness.
Miss Anything?: Not really.
Doctor’s appointment: I had my glucose screening test last week and I passed! PHEW! But, I did find out that my iron is low so I’m now on an iron supplement (the explanation for the dizziness). I am now up to seeing my midwife every two weeks! We’re THAT far along!
Wedding Rings: Still on!
Clothes: 95% maternity clothes and I have discovered the beauty of stretchy tops from Target.
Movement: SO MUCH MOVEMENT. This kid is a party animal!
Best moment of the week: Spending time with my husband and in-laws last weekend and husband actually starting on the nursery. SO EXCITING!!
What I’m looking forward to: My first Mother’s Day as a mama-to-be!
What I did / Got for baby: We started on the nursery this week! HUZZAH!
What I learned this week: That if, God forbid, the baby were to be born this week, his/her chances of survival are good and only will continue to be better as the weeks progress. While I want baby to stay in there as long as it needs to, it does feel good knowing that if something were to happen, baby would be okay.
Prayer requests: We received some family news this week that is tough – I don’t want to go into too much detail – but I just ask for prayer for healing for a member of my family. We know that God is the great Healer and that His plans are greater than ours, but the more prayers being lifted up, the better.
