And...it's time for another weekly round up of poppin mama and baby g (formerly known as
Your Pregnancy: Week 27
By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She's also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.
Ruh roh. No chicken and cabbage for Mom this week!!
Momma: Week 28
Body: Up 15 pounds- Lil bit at a time. I've never had so many people tell me how tiny I am....guys, I may look tiny, but I certainly feel this giant bowling ball full o baby on my tummy-someone get a crane to help me up, stat!
Cravings: Mmmmmm quesadillas. Two corn tortillas with some melty cheddar cheese= delicious. I think I eat one almost every single night. Nom nom nom.
Aversions – Ugh, can't do oatmeal again. Seriously, this kiddo is SOL if they think Momma won't be feeding them Quaker at some point. EAT YOUR FIBER, KID. It's good for you! So we've been having other breakfasts...like cheese sandwiches and apples. High quality stuff. LOL
Sleep: Can't get enough. Seriously. Kiddo is sucking the life out of me. If I shut my door at work, they won't know I'm sleeping, right? Kidding, kidding. Pam, shut the door!!!
|Orange Triamenic. Yuck.|
Best Baby Moment: It just keeps getting better and better every day, I tell ya. Greg and I are so super stoked, and now that the baby is developing his or her own little personality and play/kick time, we just have a ball with it. Plus, I've never seen my husband look at me quite this way. It's hard to put my finger on it, but I feel like there's just so much love bursting in our little family. It's awesome.
Items Bought/Received: got a sweet bumbo seat and a turtle activity mat from my friend Jen, and a sweet Mum and Dad = me outfit from my cousin Jen. It's been a Jen week!
