Pregnancy Highlights: How far along: 27 weeks Size of baby: Weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long. Total weight gain: 24 pounds! I gained 9 pounds since my last appointment (5 weeks ago). The nurse laughed hysterically at my reaction; she said it was priceless. I mean, of course, I'm going to gain weight, but 9 pounds! Holy crap, I was not expecting that! Maternity clothes: Still wearing both maternity and regular clothes. Gender: We've made it this long without finding out, it really doesn't even phase me not knowing. Of course, I still wonder, but that surprise is going to be priceless. Movement: This little one moves and kicks all the flippin' time! The low blow kicks to the bladder remind me so much of when I was pregnant with Cru. Sleep: Still sleeping good. Symptoms: Heart burn, hot flashes, and leg cramps.....am I pregnant or turning 50? What I miss: Nothing really Cravings: Sour sugary stuff Best moment of the week: Today's doctor's appointment, despite having to chug-a-lug that nasty glucose drink. I'm thankful to not have gestational diabetes. Hearing the heartbeat never gets old. Every appointment from here on out is scheduled, even our c-section consultation with the other doctor. It made everything seem a little more real, and I couldn't feel more blessed! What I'm looking forward to: Our sonogram on Friday! And decorating for Christmas! Reese and I put up her tree today.
I married my best friend, Chet, on August 27, 2005. He is my rock and has my heart forever. He works very hard making it possible for me to live my dream of being a stay at home mom to our three beautiful children - Reese, Cru, and Everlee. They fill my heart with joy, yet challenge me daily. I created this blog so our friends and family and even our children could have a glimpse of how we do things The Buchman Way.
