It’s a rainy morning in San Francisco and I am grateful for a lazy, rainy morning – a little break from traipsing up and down San Fran’s gigantic hills! They seem bigger when your belly is practically the size of a basketball. Ok maybe not a basketball but it’s feeling huge – baby seems to have had a growth spurt these last couple of weeks. We are having a great time here – enjoying the cable cars, views of the bridge, yummy food, hot chocolate at Ghiradelli with friends, a Christmas tree lighting, window shopping (ok and a few purchases…), and of course enjoying some cable TV at our hotel! With all the fun we’re having, the 27 week update is a little late and probably not the same format as usual because we’re blogging from our phones. Enjoy!
How far along? 27 weeks
Total weight gain: Not sure – no scale in San Fran. I’m feeling much bigger so I’m guessing I gained a pound or two.
Maternity clothes? Yes. Fully embraced my maternity clothes. Maternity jeans are the most comfortable things in the world.
Sleep: Grateful for some extra sleep this holiday weekend! Sleeping fairly well.
Best moment this week: We got a great report at our ultrasound that everything is looking good. Baby is in the 53rd percentile – except for her long legs. No surprise there!
Miss Anything? The strength I once had in my core – not that I was ever that strong… I’m taking basic strength here like the kind that helps you sit up! Haha.
Movement: Oh yes. Must be those long legs.
Food cravings: Pizza King pizza. Sadly they don’t have that anywhere but Indiana.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing specific but I do have occasional bouts of queasiness.
Have you started to show yet: Yes very much so.
Labor Signs: No – though I might have an occasional Braxton hicks contraction that I mistake for movement. Not entirely sure.
Belly Button in or out? Still in but inching out…
Wedding rings on or off? On. Had my first experience with cankles during this trip. Between the flight and all the walking I found myself with quite swollen ankles our first night here.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy
Looking forward to: Christmas, seeing what our baby looks like!
How far along? 27 weeks? All I know is the baby continues to grow!
Total weight gain: A couple pairs of pants but that’s it.
Maternity clothes? Yep.
Best moment this week: Ultrasound. They never get old!
Miss Anything? Not really.
Movement: Yeah, a lot! It’s fun being able to feel and even see it.
Food cravings: Pizza King pizza, from Indiana. Craved it so much she even began scheming about how to get it to Cali. Not going to happen!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not this week.
Have you started to show yet: Very much!
Labor Signs: Nope.
Belly Button in or out? In, but making its way out.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy.
Looking forward to: Finishing the baby’s room.
