HOW FAR ALONG: 27 weeks

TOTAL WEIGHT GAIN: I’m currently 131 pounds, which puts me at 21 pounds total :/

MATERNITY CLOTHES: YES! If I attempt to put on clothing that I wore pre pregnancy I look too funny 😉

STRETCH MARKS: None yet, crossing my fingers not to get any!

SLEEP: Alright, I’m starting to get quite uncomfortable. Turning from side to side is not an easy task anymore.

BEST MOMENT RECENTLY:  Welcoming my newest nephew James. He’s so so precious! I can’t believe how tiny babies are when they’re born. I completely forgot!!!

MISS ANYTHING: Definitely missing being able to do my normal chores without stopping for breaks. It’s almost as if I need to take a break every 20 minutes to catch my breath and calm my racing heartbeat.

MOVEMENT: Yes!  I think she’s practicing karate or something because she’s one heck of a strong baby!

FOOD CRAVINGS: Bread & Peaches! I’m so sad that peaches are almost out of season. And bread, well, I’ve always been crazy about bread but for some reason now I crave it like no other. It’s bad I know :/

ANYTHING MAKING YOU QEASY OR SICK: Still salads… I just don’t like my veggies covered in dressing and mixed with other veggies.


MOOD: Getting extremely emotional and nervous. I recently had  a meltdown while driving my son to daycare. I started thinking about how he’s not going to be a baby anymore and that I’ll be focusing on our little girl. For some reason I have this fear that he’ll feel neglected or something. Then, I began to cry about how happy I am and how blessed I feel for being able to give David a baby sister. Gosh, I’m an emotional wreck right now.

LOOKING FORWARD TO: 1) nursery furniture to arrive  2) planning the maternity photo shoot.

    Omg I am in exact same boat I gained 21 pounds 27 weeks pregnant, everything I just read is exactly how I feel (except the peaches) hehe i’m pregnant with a boy and I want my manly food but bread-and-butter is a must every single day!! The hardest thing I’ve ever done is being pregnant and still nursing my toddler so tossing and turning is not an option at night. I’m just so uncomfortable these days, but my daughter just won’t let go she’s so attached to nursing.

      Yeah, I can imagine how difficult that can be.
      I’m pregnant with a girl and my diet is pretty much same, with the exception of peaches and extra bread every ones in a while 😉 When is your due date?
