231. 27 week pregnancy update!

How far along: 27 weeks 2 days! Hello 3rd trimester, ohmyfreakinggosh!

How big is baby: As big as a cauliflower (?!?), around 13.6-14.8 inches and 1.5-2.5 pounds. That's around a kilogram, i.e. a bag of sugar, how crazy! I weighed out some potatoes the other day to make everyone else see how big he was, & was amazed!!

Maternity clothes: Yeah, there's no going back now!

Stretch marks: No! I'm still keeping my fingers very firmly crossed!

Sleep: Average, though no matter what time I go to sleep, I never want to wake up in the mornings! Luckily I have a gorgeous little nugget who makes it worthwhile!

Best moment this week: Hearing Boo-two's heartbeat again at the hospital. I had a major freakout about a pain I was getting on the right side of my tummy on Monday, so Colin also freaked out & rushed home, I spoke to a couple of midwives (at the wrong hospital!) who wanted to check me over & after being told by the midwife at our hospital it was just ligament pain, I phoned back and asked to be checked over to put my mind at ease. We had the loveliest midwife ever once we arrived (Colin, Daniel, Colin's Mum & myself, a mini entourage!) who also concluded ligament pain & suggested I take the day off the next day and eat lots of ice cream! I knew it was probably nothing, but I can't explain what happened in my mind, I just panicked! I'm glad I went in though, it definitely put my mind at ease!

Belly button in or out: Poking out a little!

Craving: Cereal, peanut M&M's, caramel & milk. I proved at the hospital that my metabolism is working in overdrive (just two hours after eating a giant muffin & a bowl of fruit my body was showing traces of protein I think, which meant my body was using the muscles as energy & I needed to eat!) so I'm just eating A LOT, I dread to think how much weight I've put on!

What I miss: I've been banned from carrying Daniel because of this ligament pain :( I know he's big enough now to not need carrying, but a cuddle is always nice! I felt like the worst Mum in the world walking to my Mum's, Daniel trailing behind me screaming because he wanted a cuddle & I couldn't pick him up! :'(

What am I looking forward to: My appointment with the midwife this week. After waiting nearly four weeks to see the Dr, they had to cancel and rearrange with a midwife instead (which also means me cancelling my plans for the afternoon!) !! Annoyed is an understatement. But a check up is a check up, & I do like our midwife, I'm just cross about having to wait so long!

I've started washing all of Daniel's old clothes, & bursting into tears repeatedly about how small things are! I'm half incredibly excited, and half absolutely petrified about what's to come! 13 weeks and counting babyboy, we can't wait to meet you!

Lots of Love
Momma B & Babyboy
