27 Weeks Pregnancy Update

I'm 27 Weeks!!!!
Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 27 Weeks and counting! I can't wait to meet you my sweet little boy!

Size of Baby: Little Robert is the size of head of cauliflower. He is 14 to 14.8 inches long. He weighs about 2 pounds.

Baby Development This Week: Robert's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing his eyes, and perhaps even sucking his fingers. With more brain tissue developing, his brain is very active now. While his lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if he were born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle

Maternity Clothes: I wear maternity jeans, pants and some maternity tops.Love those stretchy leggings and jeggins!

Gender: It's a Boy!!! Robert William Christensen

Movement: He is a busy little guy in there. I often feel like he's building a house!! This week I felt a few rib kicks.

How Am I Sleeping: Pretty Well! Thanks to my awesome pregnancy pillow! A little more aches and pain, but it's all worth it!

What I miss: Ugh!!! I would LOVE a great BIG sub sandwich!

Cravings: Cuties tangerines and Babybel Cheese, all the fruit I can get and Shredded Mini Wheat's!

Symptoms: Trouble getting out of bed in the morning while laying flat on my back. ha ha :) Also, a little shortness of breath in my ribs. Just an overall heavy feeling. Oh and the new one this week, trouble bending over and putting on my shoes!

Best Thing This Week: Passing my glucose test the first time, working on Robert's nursery and as always praising the Lord for my little one! :)
