My pregnancy week 27

Week 27Wow!  The last week of the 2nd trimester!  I'm so excited!  I have toes....I know because they run into toys and stuff!All About Baby Baby graduates onto a new growth chart this week....head to toe!  Babys length is a full 15 inches long!  Baby's weight is creeping up the charts as well, coming in at just over 2 pounds this week.  Here's an interesting factoid:  baby has more taste buds now than he or she will have at birth!  Which means that not only is baby able to taste the difference in amniotic fluid, but might react to it.     About baby and mommyI feel pretty good.  Huge, but good.  I get winded easily climbing steps and bending over repeatedly.  I tire easily if I walk to far.  My pelvis is tender a lot.  It hurts when I get up from the floor or squat.  This baby moves all the time!     Maggie didn't wiggle a lot, just stretch and punch or kick a lot.  This baby will do that, then roll over so the backside is pushing out on my stomach so we get to watch my stomach change shape a lot.  It's so much fun to watch, but not always the most comfortable, but I love that baby moves so much.  As in...all day long for days at a time, then baby takes a break for a day or so with just a few movements here or there.  It's fun to feel the baby roll back and forth, but it worries John that the cord will get wrapped around baby.I've been really hungry!  Mostly, any food is fine, once in a while, something sounds bad, but mostly, I don't have any aversions.  I do however have ridiculous cravings.  I craved Dairy Queen for 2 straight days.  To the point where I almost woke up Maggie from her nap and drove to town...but if you have read about my nap struggles, you will understand what held me back.  I finally did get Dairy Queen, and wouldn't you know, buy a blizzard get a 2nd for 99 cents.  Yay!  That covered me for a few days :)  I don't know how much weight I am gaining.  I have decided to just "weigh in" on that after my doctor appointments since that will be much more accurate.  I keep having these crazy dreams that I go into labor and it's just Maggie and I at home, so I go to wake her up to go, and I just go into full blown labor, baby is coming too fast.  I end up delivering my own baby before anybody gets here to help (with Maggie running around).  Then the other night, I dreamed that I was in the hospital, had the baby way early, but all was well.  We went home the next day and I stopped at my family's to visit, and just left the new baby in the car because he was sleeping....yes, in this dream, the baby was a boy.  We have no idea what we are having, but I sense a boy...we shall see.  I had no thoughts or ideas with Maggie, no feeling one way or another.  Everybody thinks this baby is a boy though.  We shall see in June!  Are you pregnant and want to share your story as it unfolds?  I'd love to read about it!  I love being pregnant!!!  In fact, I actually cried the night before I had my daughter because I wouldn't be pregnant anymore!!

My pregnancy week 28

28 WeeksAbout baby :  We have safely arrived in the third trimester.  This week, my amazing baby has reached 2 1/2 pounds and may be almost 16 inches long.  Baby's newest skill....blinking.  Along with coughing, sucking, hiccupping, and taking practice breaths, baby can now blink those gorgeous little eyes.  Baby now has REM sleep so he or she can dream about mommy :)  Though babies lungs are nearly fully mature, baby still has a lot of growing to do.  What baby looks like:    About mommy and baby:I have been having heartburn kind of a lot lately.  I have been very tired, although I'm not sure it has so much to do with the pregnancy as with not getting enough sleep at night.  The baby moves constantly and I love it!  Although once in awhile, it's very uncomfortable, usually when Maggie is sitting on my lap pushing on baby and baby starts pushing back.  Maggie has a tough time getting comfortable because she is running out of lap already.  She likes to sit on my lap to read and lay back, but it isn't very comfortable for either of us.  My pelvis feels like somebody took a sledgehammer to it....almost every day it feels like this.  Especially when I overdue it a bit.  Seriously can't figure out how there is only one baby in here....it feels like this child has 100 limbs!  I have a doctor appointment on Monday after Easter.  Glucose test this time.  Oh joy.   So excited to hear baby's heartbeat though.  Maggie and I read The Wheels On The Bus every day, and now every time we get to the part about the baby's on the bus go wah wah wah....she lifts up my shirt, gives baby a kiss and wraps her arms around my tummy to see it.  Absolutely most adorable thing ever!!!!!  She came up with it on her own and I love it every time.  Hopefully she loves baby that much when he or she gets here :)
