27 weeks!

27 weeks down, 13 to go! we're officially in the third trimester and have less than 3 months [89 days!] until baby j's due date! nothing major going on this week - still feeling great and just moving along. DJ and I have been able to see sweet pea moving around in my belly and that is just insane... I've spent countless evening hours laying on the couch/in bed with my shirt pulled up staring at my naked belly to see the little movements/spasms as she moves around in there. so amazing.

here's this week's 27 weeks bumpin' bumpin - as usual, Ollie came over and wanted to be a part of our "photoshoot" this morning and looking through all the shots that DJ took this was my favorite. I love how Ollie has his little paw on my foot looking up at me like, "mom, I know there's a baby in there but don't forget about me..." - never my little prince!
sweet, huh?

27 week stats...
  • baby j weighs almost 2lbs this week [head of cauliflower] and is measuring around 14.5 inches with her legs extended [I'm starting to feel her in two spots at once at the top and bottom of my belly, so she's definitely getting long... and punching and kicking at the same time! we have a little athlete on our hands!]
  • this is the week that I sighed a sigh of relief because even though it would take a lot of medical intervention - this is the point where the rate of survival is a lot higher if I were to go into preterm labor and sweet pea was born early.... but on that note, I'd like her to stay in there longer and get stronger!
  • as of this week, more of her brain tissue is developing and her brain is very active. 
  • leg cramps = still cramping my style. I woke up from them four times on Tuesday night, not fun!
  • number of heart shaped cookies baked and iced: around 50 [for my coworkers and student assistants]
  • number of sodas drank: ZERO. [that's right. even though my doctor said I could have a coke/glass of caffeine a day - I felt like the soda was adding to my excess weight gain and probably not too good for sweet pea]. so - no more, not going to lie it's been hard, especially working in downtown Atlanta where Coca Cola is plastered EVERYWHERE]. it's crazy too - I hadn't drank soda in years [other than with a little jack mixed in...] and after I got pregnant I started craving it and wanting it like crazy?! oh well, no more.
sugar cookies that I baked for my students... DJ helped me decorate them with royal icing... he even made me a sweet one of my one... 

ollie and I had some "tummy time" on Sunday... [see, already getting in mom/taking care of an infant mode]. then he decided he had enough of laying on his tummy and sat on mine. I was waiting for sweet pea to kick him the rear but he got off before that happened...

our friends Cord & Sarah were driving through on their way from Florida back to the Berkshires and stayed the night with us on Monday night, they were so sweet and brought these adorable goodies for sweet pea from Marco Island!

and then of course, sweet pea's first [in utero] valentines day... hope everyone enjoyed their wine/champagne with their loves... I thouroughly enjoyed my apple cranberry sparking cider!
so that was our 27th week.
nothing too exciting but one week closer to meeting our baby girl...
on to the third trimester!
