27 weeks: 3rd Trimester!

So I'm pretty sure that I've decided to move my weekly pregnancy posts to Wednesdays when my actual gestational age switches over. I don't know what I was thinking trying to do them on Sundays.


We are officially in our 27th week of pregnancy and for most that means we are into the 3rd trimester!!!

Yesterday was June 14th and that was exactly 3 months until Owen's due date!!!

That still feels weird to say and I cannot believe it's coming up so quickly! He'll be here before we know it!

Before I get into the actual update, I did want to let everyone know that Owen and I passed the 1hr GTT!!! I hadn't gotten a call from the doctor's office (I was praying that "no news is good news") and so I called them to see if the results were in... our glucose levels came in at 121 and they look for anything under 135 as "passing"!!! Soooooooo happy we passed and don't need to take the 3hr (yuck!)!!!

How far along: 27w0d

This weeks' weight gain/loss: +1lbs

Total weight gain/loss: -2lbs

Symptoms: Swollen extremities from the heat and humidity (thank goodness we put in that central AC a few weeks back, I don't know how we ever lived without it), heartburn is starting to flare up again and sleeping is becoming increasingly uncomfortable.

Maternity clothes: All maternity at this point, but I do think that I have finally finished building my maternity clothing stash! I bought a pair of dress black capris for work and another pair of convertible (capris/pants) black cotton bottoms, which are light and airy for those warm summer days. Couple that with the 2 pairs (light and dark) of jean capris, and 2 pairs (again, light and dark) of regular jeans that I already had... and I think that we're officially good to go! I am ready for anything!

Stretch marks: yes :o( around the hips, lower abdomen and thighs *sigh*

Best moment this week: Passing the 1hr GTT (I was actually really worried, I've heard horror stories!). And my baby shower invitations went out last week - there have even already been some purchases from the registries!!!

Movement: Lots, and Bryan is still feeling kicks from the outside. But there are days here and there when I don't feel him as much, it!!! I don't know if he's just sitting in an anterior position or if he's being lazy, but I hate hate hate days like that! That's usually when I bust out my doppler ;o)

Food cravings: Still lemonade (even though it gives me heartburn) and fruit, I am love love loving fruit right now!

Gender: it's a BOY!!! Owen Richard W*****

Any baby related purchases: We were at Target and I couldn't resist buying him another cute little outfit (I'm trying my best to cut back, I swear). And we also bought the paint for his nursery!!! Can't wait to get started!!!

Milestones: Officially into the 3rd trimester!!!
