Bump Update: 27 Weeks


How far along? 27 weeks

Size of baby: Sully is nearing 15 inches long and 2 pounds! Like a head of cauliflower? lol I'm not understanding these vegetable comparisons anymore... 

Milestones: This week his eyes began opening and closing, and he possibly even starting sucking his little thumb! He is spending hours asleep and awake, that will most likely continue to be his pattern after birth!

Total weight gain: Lost a few more pounds as I added an extra iron supplement, and it hasn't wanted to settle in my stomach. I'm now -10lbs from conception weight.

Maternity clothes: Still getting as creative as possible to save money, but yes if my favorite maternity shirt/pants are in the wash it's a rough day. lol

Unglamorous body changes: Stretch marks, very dry skin, and broken blood vessels all over my face from vomiting! New to me! I don't care one bit about it all. I've earned these 'ugly' scars! ;)

Sleep: Sleep is still filled with weird, terrifying, or worrisome dreams... but I'm dealing just fine!

Best moment this week: I'm definitely getting frequent stares now from other people due to my definite G-R-O-W-I-N-G tummy! Even got a few 'you look like you're about to pop!' BUT I'm not. Haha. I'm not annoyed by them, but it does make me self-conscious again that I'm 'too big'... even though I know all preggo tummies are different.

Miss anything? I would give up ANYTHING for this baby and not miss it. 

Movement: Yep. I'm thinking I may have a walker by about 6 months. LOL

Food cravings: cinnamon toast, Taco Bell tacos, and raspberry lemonade

Anything making you queasy/sick? Nope.

Gender: It's a BOY! Sullivan James Wallheimer 

Labor Signs: Still a ways to go!  For the first time when I read these question I paused at the 'a ways to go!'... I guess I really don't!

Symptoms: hip pain, backaches, slight swelling, and cramping/nausea from movement

Belly button in or out? In... and everyone that sees it seems to get a little jealous that's it's still in! I guess I can thank the 'Gracie scar' in the middle of my bellybutton for keeping it in!

Wedding rings on or off? Off... haven't tried to put them on in awhile... and I'm thinking I may not get a chance to wear them again for a little bit :(

Happy or moody most of the time: I feel like I'm a little more on edge lately... but I'm trying to keep it in check!

Weekly wisdom: (Our heavenly) Father knows best.

What stereotype I embody: I'm constantly trying to balance things on my tummy! HAHA why not?!

What I bought this week: I bought a small basketball onesie for him at Wal-Mart that said "Daddy's MVB (Most Valuable Baby)" on it after having a bit of a bad day. It cheered me up a bit :)

What I checked off my to-do list: We've had our first showing on the house! It was hectic and crazy, but we're glad we were able to pull it off!

Looking forward to: Hearing the RSVPs (hopefully) begin to roll in from the shower invitations Britney is sending out!
