Bumpdate: Week 27

Size of the baby: a head of cauliflower

Total weight gain:  16 pounds

Maternity clothes: Everyday, but no new purchases.  I love changing into pajamas as soon as I get home from work and I've become fond of R's t shirts and pj pants for lounging.  I think I might purchase a couple new tops just so I can have a bit more variety, it stinks wearing the same things over and over.  I depend on scarves, cardigans and jewelry to spice up my current pieces on rotation.

Gender: This bunny is a girl

Nursery:  S.L.O.W.L.Y. -coming along. In about two weeks we will have a lot more accomplished. My husband has had a lot of overtime lately so things haven't progressed much.  We received the crib mattress, changing pad, and curtains and we are going to focus on the walls before going any further.

Sleep:  Great, I love sleep actually.  I have to get up several times to potty but I pass out just as quickly.

What I miss:  Champagne would have been nice on NYE but the Fre alcohol free brut was an excellent substitute, even R had a glass and enjoyed it.

Cravings:  Fruit is delicious to me, I actually passed up cake this week because I was craving an orange.  I wanted a cheeseburger this week too, with tater tots so hubs had to swing by Sonic on his way's a weird craving for me since I don't eat red meat often.

Other symptoms: No swelling thank goodness and my husband noted that my belly button is getting "flatter" but I'm still not an outie!  I also haven't had any stretch marks so far but I've been using creams and trying to hydrate.  I'm still taking zantac 2-3 per day to control my reflux, and this week I had a horrible night where I was sick for several hours with burning and nausea.  I can't complain that I've had one bad night in six months.

Best moments:  Best friend set the date for my baby shower - she and her mother are the best hostesses.  Planning a shower and entertaining is exhausting business and I'm so thankful that they offered to throw a party for my baby.  It's at the end of the month and I have the perfect dress for it.  I had a few people touch my belly this week, not going to lie it was a bit weird but at least the attention has been positive.  I enjoyed a low key New Years Eve at home with my husband followed by a couple of days off to start Spring cleaning...the BIG clean out and organization before our baby arrives.  Our babymoon is booked for late January and a class with our pediatrician is booked for early February - our weekends are filling up fast!
