The crew enjoying some grill-n-pool time! And he's off... Got him!! I am headed out of town next week to stick my toes in the sand one last time before baby Grayson arrives! I am off to celebrate a good friends Bachelorette weekend and doubt I will have time to do any blogging, so my 27 & 28 week (which I will be on Sunday) post is combined... Enjoy!
How Far Along: 27/28 weeks
Size of baby: The size of a head of cauliflower (27) & a chinese cabbage (28) – almost 15 inches long and a/b 2 and a quarter lbs.
Maternity Clothes: Yes indeed! I can still wear some normal stuff, but it’s getting to the point where maternity is much more comfortable for this big bump!
Gender: IT’S A BOY!!!!!!!
Movement: All the time! He is ready to party at about 9:30 pm – too bad Momma is not! Ha! I love the big kicks, they make me laugh. We played a little game last night and everytime I would push my tummy he would give me a big jolt :) Also, I can now tell what side of my tummy he is on because there is a big bulge, hehe :)
Sleep: I really hope not, but I am starting to feel a bit of that 1st trimester sleepiness… not near as bad but naps are sounding better and better in the afternoon! I am just trying to enjoy the sleep I can get for now, because I hear pretty soon the sleep will not happen!
What I miss: Nothing really, maybe a cold brew by the pool but not really… I wouldn’t change this for the world!
Cravings: Ice cream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!!! :)
Symptoms: With the heat and being on my feet a lot this weekend I started to swell a bit, yuck! Other than that just the usual and I feel like my belly has doubled in the past few days!
Best Moment this week: Hearing the heartbeat! We had a doctor appt. yesterday and his heartrate was 145!! She said he’s a happy little boy :)
