27 (and a half) Weeks

I'm writing this post a little late, but Momma always taught us better late than never. I wish the library agreed with Momma; apparently they don't see things that way when it comes to returning books as I so wonderfully found out this afternoon. The infamous "pregnancy brain" is definitely getting the best of me.

We worked on a few new projects this weekend that I'm excited to share with you guys upon completion! Zach's actually outside on the table saw right now putting the final touches on Baby's dresser. I, on the other hand, am sitting here catching up on blogs and eating Sour Patch Kids. This is the life.

To our Baby Boy:
Dad is working like crazy to finish all the projects for your nursery; he even painted you something that looks amazing. I think you're going to love it. You've been staying up pretty late these days; you seem to come alive and wanna party around midnight. Does this mean you're going to be a night owl like your mom? You really enjoyed the library today and even helped pick out a few books. I interpreted one kick to mean "keep looking", two for "check it out". Although, thinking about it now, your enthusiasm could have been caused by the large Sonic Blue Coconut Cream Slush I downed on the way to the library. Nah, you're just Mommy's Little Helper. Thanks, Tiny! We sure do love you.
No, that's not a hat I'm sporting, or a furry animal...it's the World's Largest Bun. They weren't kiddin' when they said pregnancy makes for thick hair.

How Far Along: 27 weeks, 3 days
Baby Size: 14 3/4 inches, 2 lbs.
Total Weight Gain: 14 lbs.
Maternity Clothes? Still wearing normal clothes, just not anything that buttons. Couldn't button up a pair of my old britches if I tried (and yes, I have tried).
Stretch Marks? No new ones to report...thank heavens.
Sleep: Sleep has been pretty great the past week. Unfortunately I'm still waking up with a nasty migraine every morning, but I'm going back to the doctor tomorrow to see if we can't tackle this once and for all.
Best moment this week: There aren't any moments that are jumping out...honestly it was just a great week all around.
Miss Anything? Sleeping on my back and belly. So hard to keep from it!
Movement: Still lots, and at random times throughout the day. As Little Man gets stronger, some of the kicks are starting to hurt! I can't imagine what it will feel like in a month or so.
Food Cravings: Milkshakes, sweet potato fries, Taco Bell (strange because I'm normally not a big TB fan)
Anything making you queasy or sick? Had morning sickness one day last week...other than that eating like a champ.
Gender: Boy
Labor Signs: Not yet
Belly button in or out? Still an innie, barely
Wedding rings on or off? On & loose
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy and excited
Looking forward to: So many things we're looking forward to this week!
1. Hearing our Little Man's heartbeat at the doctor on Thursday
2. JOURNEY concert Friday! We're all three pumped for that one.
3. Our birthing classes at the hospital Saturday and Sunday.
4. Seeing Tiny in 4d on Monday! Zach took the whole day off...this is a big occasion. Technically next week, but too exciting not to mention :).

Hope your week is off to a great start!
