Holy cow!! 27 weeks – depending on what you read, I’m in my 3rd trimester. That means we’re almost done!! It sure feels that way at least. There’s no hiding that I’m pregnant, even in a big hooded sweatshirt. I have a doctor’s appointment next week and then they start coming every 2 weeks instead of 4.
On a side note, my belly button is getting stranger every day.
If you look closely at the picture, you can even see the top part that sticks out.
After spending time with my beautiful niece and adorable cousin, both about 3 weeks old, I’ve decided I need to work on my biceps. Holding babies is hard work!! As the weather is getting a little nicer, we’ve been going on walks. There’s an occasional jaunt on a treadmill as well, but walking outside is so much better!! Now I just have to find a way to make working my biceps more fun. Maybe I’ll just have to work a lot of baby holding in…
I’ve been feeling pretty good, but I have been experiencing indigestion and back pain. The first time I had indigestion, I was trying to explain it to Aaron and he kind of looked at me like I was an idiot, then told me I had heartburn. I’d never experienced it before, so I was oblivious. Now, I’m an expert. We have Tums, berry flavored, next to the bed, downstairs in the family room and in my purse. I haven’t found any specific triggers, beyond eating in general and laying down – neither of which I can avoid!!
We’ve been wanting Queen size bed for a while now. After I got the Leachco Snoogle Total Body Pillow it was even more needed, because the pillow and I don’t leave much room for Aaron. Since I was having lots of back pain, and our bed was over 20 years old, we decided to get a new bed. It’s Memory Foam, which is supposed to be great, and is supposed to keep you from feeling the other person tossing and turning. Hopefully, the new bed, combined with visits to the chiropractor and possibly a massage, will help me get through the next few months.
BabyMort weighs about 2 pounds and is about 14.5 inches long with her legs stretched out. She opens and closes her eyes and sucks on her fingers now. She’s sleeping and waking on a regular schedule now, which I’ll totally believe since she gets going right as we’re laying down to sleep every night. I haven’t noticed a pattern during the day as much, but I think that’s because I’m moving around so much more I don’t always notice her moving.
Next time you’re in the produce aisle, check out a head of cauliflower. That’s about how big Chloe is right now.
