How far along?: 27 weeks
Maternity clothes?: Definitely. But yoga pants are still my favorite to wear to work! I am sticking mostly with maternity tops just because I don't want to stretch out my good shirts.
Sleep: Good. Wake up at least once a night to pee, but it is getting to the point where I don't remember being fully awake when I was up.
Best moment this week: Someone telling me that I didn't look like I had gained much weight at all...(yah right!)
Movement: All the time. Especially in the morning and right before I am going to sleep.
Food Cravings: Nothing in particular at this point, loving Mexican food or anything salty, but that really isn't out of the norm for me.
Gender: boy, boy, boy!
Belly Button: Innie
Stretchmarks?: Just previous ones from puberty...I am lotioning like crazy in case that will help prevent them.
What I miss: Thinner legs.
What I am looking forward to: For baby to have hiccups, and for baby showers!!
Weekly Wisdom: Don't drink lots of water right before going to sleep. Although, that seems to be when I am the most thirsty!
Milestones: This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with his legs extended. He's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing his eyes, and perhaps even sucking his fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While his lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if he were born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother him, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.
