27 Weeks

27 Weeks

Total Weight Gain: 14 lbs.

Maternity Clothes?  Haven't bought any new clothes!  Still finding items in my closet to squeeze into.

Wedding Rings On or Off? On!

Stretch Marks?  No!  My mom bought me some new Mamma Mio tummy butter this week, and I absolutely love it.  It smells great and absorbs quickly.  I'm using it multiple times a day now. 

Sleep?  Interesting.  I'm moving around lots at night and having some pretty strange dreams.  I'm still having a love affair with Snoogle which continues to get more and more cozy each week!

Best Moment This Week:  My trip to Spokane!  I had the chance to spend plenty of time with friends as well as both my brothers!  I had lots of snuggles with my new niece Kanyon, and am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my other niece, Hadley, in less than a month!

Miss Anything?  Being able to get out of a car like a normal person!  It takes a lot more "umph" to get out of Conor's car since it's so low.  Especially if it's parked on one of Seattle's many hills...a big challenge. 

Movement?  Getting stronger every day!  He really feels like a little person in there now.

Food Cravings:  I am currently obsessed with bakeries!  This has probably stemmed from my current love of breakfast!  While in Spokane, I went to Rockwood Bakery (one of my favorites) and had an incredible ham & cheese croissant with my chai tea latte...heavenly.  There is also a French bakery I've been wanting to try out near Pike Place Market.

Food Aversions:  Not at all.  My huge appetite is her to stay!

Symptoms: The symptoms are really starting to kick in.  This week I was blessed with the introduction of leg cramps while sleeping.  The really bad ones that make you get out of bed immediately, which is no easy task when I'm completely wrapped up in my Snoogle.  I've also had a little bit of heartburn...nothing bad enough to make me not want to eat though.  ;-)  And although I thought I was having Braxton Hicks contractions before, I wasn't.  This week I did have my first one and it was obvious!  I had no idea my entire stomach could get that tight!  Crazy things are happening.

Staying Active?  Still swimming laps.  Now that I've been in the pool for two weeks, I'm going to start setting some goals and making sure I'm getting the best workout possible.  Also, I go to the doctor this week, and I'm going to ask if I can ease back into some running...  I just miss it so much!  We'll see what the doctor says....

Belly Button:  The turkey timer is "in"!

Happy or Moody?  Happy, stressed, and everything in between!

Nursery Progress:  No new progress, I'm still admiring the great paint job!  I did find two Aden & Anais fitted crib sheets that I love and will go perfectly in the nursery, so now I need to decide on a bed skirt.  I'm going to keep it simple and forgo the a more modern look which I like.

Looking Forward To:  My glucose test.  A strange thing to look forward to...I know.  However, I am a huge sweets person and have been worrying about failing this test since the day I got pregnant!  It will be so nice to have it over with...assuming I pass! :-)


  1. hi! :) i have been following your blogs for a couple weeks as i've started my own preggo blog. i was hoping you could help me figure out how to add a tab such as your 'bump' tab. i can't seem to figure it out for the life of me! i think thats the best part is watching the bump grow. :)
    thanks much

  2. Ashley, on your blogger dashboard there should be a "pages" tab. Go there and create a new page. Sorry for the simple instructions, hope this helps! Happy & healthy pregnancy to you!

    1. That was SO easy! Thanks so much! :) Good luck to you and your little one!


I love reading all your comments!
