27 Weeks

Daisy decided she wanted to be in the picture this week ;)

Weeks along: 27

What's new with baby: Baby is now the size of a camping lantern and is just shy of 2 pounds.

Maternity Clothes: Yes

Symptoms: Continuing to feel good, but definitely slowing down a little. Last night I fell asleep on the couch at 8:15ish, woke back up at 9:15, and then promptly went to bed and didn't wake up until 6:30 in the morning. I guess I better enjoy it while I still can ;-).

Cravings: Besides eating all the fruit, I had a craving for Chipotle after my doctor's appointment, so Nate obliged and we had an early dinner.

Workouts: 2 2 mile walks and one 25 minute elliptical session, plus some weights sprinkled in.

Baby Purchases: Nothing this week. I'm trying to figure out how to decorate the rest of the nursery, but I can't make up my mind on what would work well with the furniture and colors we have.

High point of the week: My doctor's appointment. It's always great to hear little man's heartbeat and spend some extra time with Nathan when he comes.

Concerns/Issues: I had a mini panic attack dealing with our new insurance this week. Nate had sent in our marriage certificate multiple times to verify me as a dependent, and when he checked on it Tuesday it showed me as "denied." Uh, yea, being 6 months pregnant and not having insurance is NOT an option. Luckily after we faxed them the marriage certificate (for the third time) and some tax documents ASAP we got it all worked out, but it made for a pretty stressful day.

Missing: Skiing/traveling

Sleep: Continues to be good. I wake up every now and then with some back/hip pain, but for the most part it's been a solid 8 1/2-9 hours. I have no idea how I'm going to adjust when I'm living off of a couple hours of broken sleep.

Looking forward to: My sister-in-law's baby shower this weekend. She's due just 7 weeks before me with a little girl and I cannot wait to celebrate her and our soon-to-be niece!


  1. You are looking so cute! Your bump is adorable!!!! Insurance can be so stressful when pregnant! I found out a couple months before my son was born that my insurance was no longer an option through my work and the insurance I could change to would put me at a different hospital meaning I'd have to change doctors during the 3rd trimester! It was stressful but we ended up putting me on my husband's insurance even though it was more expensive.

    1. Thank you! And that sounds like a nightmare. I'm so happy we got everything worked out, but yes, having to change insurance mid-pregnancy is never fun!
