Bébé Week 27 Update

{Sorry, didn't feel like looking cute today ;)}

I still can't believe in 3 months, Jill will be here. It is totally mind-blowing for us. Plus, next week will be the start of my 3rd trimester! Holy cow. It is hard to believe, but I'm very thrilled :) Also, I had a weird episode this morning where I suddenly felt overwhelmed by the feeling that I was going to faint. I got really warm and a little dizzy and had to make myself lay down on the couch. The feeling passed, but I'm now taking it very easy from the rest of the day. Netflix on the Wii in our bedroom? Sounds like a plan to me!

Today's date: September 10, 2011

How far along: 27 weeks

Total weight gain: I lost this week somehow! I am only 1 pound over my pre-pregnancy weight as of today. I didn't eat much yesterday though thanks to the glucose test, (I was more nauseous this time), so it's not real surprising. However, I have no idea where I would have lost those pounds! Definitely not from my backside HAHA ;)

Size and growth of the baby: 
Jill is now the size of a head of cauliflower (14 1/2" long)  and, thanks to her ultrasound measurements yesterday, 2 pounds and 3 ounces exactly! She has more taste buds now than she will when she's born, but that also means she can distinguish tastes in the amniotic fluid she's breathing in depending on what I'm eating throughout the day.  Her brain is really working up a storm as her brain becomes more complex.  {per}

Sex: It's a girl!

Maternity clothes: Almost everything is maternity. I wear non-maternity shirts at home.

Sleep: Sleeping on my side is a little easier, but I will still wake up on my back about 4 nights a week. I did have a weird night where I fell asleep on my right side and when I woke up around 4 a.m. to pee, my right calf hurt! I had to kind of stretch it out to calm it down before I could go back to sleep. I think Jill may have just settled on a nerve that night because it hasn't happened since.

Best moment(s) of the week: Finding out my placenta has moved and seeing my Jillybean again via the ultrasound! She's something precious, that's for sure.

Movement: I feel Jill moving every day now :) I can definitely tell when she's having a "quiet" day though. I'll feel her move, but it will usually be far back in my uterus so I don't see the movements. Otherwise, I get to watch my belly move/do the wave at least twice a day. Most of the time, I can get Phil to see it once and he loves it.

Food cravings/aversions: I don't really have aversions anymore which is nice! I have noticed that there are some foods that just do not sound appetizing so I steer clear. No real cravings this week. 

Morning sickness: With Zofran, I can eat just about anything and keep it down. However, I can still get nauseous from time to time depending on what I ate that day. Usually I feel sickness if it's late at night if I do at all.

Symptoms: Obvious baby bump, peeing constantly, lots of purple stretch marks, uterus/lower abdomen feels heavy, baby kicks, lower back pain in the morning, heartburn/acid, and gassy.

Labor signs: None

Belly button in or out: In

What I miss: Eating cookie dough when Phil bakes cookies and sleeping comfortably.

What I'm looking forward to: Passing the 3 hour glucose test (hopefully), and getting to the 3rd trimester!

Here are some of the photos from the ultrasound yesterday! Even the tech thought she was being super cute ;)

Her profile now takes up the whole frame instead of last time when her whole body fit in the frame :)  

Yes, she is playing with her foot in front of her face. What a limber little girl! 

Jill has her hand next to her head. 

And the sweetest picture of all - blowing kisses! She actually moved her hand to her face and away from it as soon as the tech started. She's already a ham for the camera like her mommy ;)

Happy Saturday! WOOO PIG SOOIE!
