Happy Third Trimester to me!! I’m officially 27 weeks today, so it’s time to tell you all about last week!
How Big is Baby: Baby H. is now weighing 1 2/3rds pound and measures 14 inches in length! That’s the length of an English hothouse cucumber.
How I’m Feeling: Even greater than great! Since this week was filled with family, my usually great pregnancy feelings have been intensified!
I only had one moment of being a cry baby this week: John and I were trying a new church in Maryland and the choir was singing before midnight mass started. I might have started to cry and said it’s just not the same! John actually agreed with me and we will be doing some church shopping over the next few weeks.
How I’m Changing: See below for movement!
Movement: Baby has been kicking and moving around a lot more regularly! In the evening is when this usually happens most. Most of the movement is hard enough for John to feel too — it’s been wonderful!
Weight I’ve Gained: This week is another untracked week! It’ll be interesting to see what next week brings!
Number of Workouts: John and I explored a nearby trail this week and walked for probably 2.5 miles. I think this’ll become a great walking trail for my new neighbor friend and I, as well as a great running trail for me eventually!
What I’ve Been Eating: Lots of home cooked meals!
John’s Thoughts: I love feeling my little guy kick and move! Now that he’s fidgeting more regularly in the evenings, it feels like we’re interacting with him. It’ll be even better when Katie’s tummy is a bit bigger and I can feel him all day. Now that we have the new place mostly in order, I need to get the decorations planned for the nursery.
Buying Gifts for Baby: Christmas time meant some cuuuttteee gifts for baby! We received lots of adorable outfits, baby books, a bumbleebee rocker for when the baby is a little older and more! John and I also went to Target and bought some on-clearance Christmas outfits for baby next year. 🙂
Buying Gifts for Mommy: Not only did family have fun getting baby cute gifts, buy mommy had surprises too! I would say the biggest surprise was John getting me a Vera Bradley diaper bag!! Both of my sister-in-laws, my mom, and John’s mom, all got me a couple maternity shirts too! They are so cute. 🙂 The shirt I’m wearing underneath “John’s Thoughts” is from my SIL Michelle!
What We’re Looking Forward to This Week:
- Hopefully getting the phone call that our crib is finished!
- Trying a new church this Sunday.
- Seeing the National Christmas tree.
