Pregnancy Highlights: I just feel super pregnant. I feel happy when my joints pop when I stand up. It’s a good time.
How far along: 27 weeks.
Size of baby: “This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (about the size of a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended.”
Total weight gain: I don’t know.
Name: Daphne Lane (I have already told Steve I am probably going to call her Deedee though.)
Movement: Not a lot at all. I think I have an introvert baby. Ophelia never stopped moving when I was pregnant with her and she hasn’t stopped moving since. I’ve hardly felt this babe move around at all and I’m always concerned about it, but this morning I felt a hunger pain and then she kicked so hard it almost wiped the wind out of me. YAY! I ate some yogurt and she hasn’t moved since. I guess introvert baby was just letting me know she needed food and was done talking. I totally get it.
Maternity clothes: Yep, I’m all in now. But I don’t fit a lot of my clothes I wore when I was pregnant with Ophelia. I didn’t think I was that much bigger. Gah. I might have to shop at some point.
Sleep: I’m sleeping pretty well, considering. I go to bed around 10 and wake up at 4:15 (work). I could do without some of these pregnancy dreams though. They’re super annoying me.
What I miss: Not really sure. I really am just enjoying this pregnancy thing. I appreciate it.
Aversions: Fish still sounds like garbage to me. Hope it doesn’t stick post-pregnancy. I don’t/can’t eat anything with sugar or else I get heartburn way bad and throw up spontaneously in the night. You’re welcome for that.
Best moment of the week: The thing this morning was pretty great. She was slamming pretty hard into my ribcage and I looked down and she was all, “HELLO!? MOM! CAN WE GET SOME YOGURT UP IN HERE ALREADY!?” Yes, your highness. Also, another best moment was getting our nursery rocker set up. It’s a double rocker so if we had to, we could all sit on it. That chair is my happy place. I sit in there about 500 times a day and Ophelia comes in and rocks her daddy penguin in the swing. Oh boy.
Looking forward to: I’m mostly excited to have two little girls and see their differences in personality. Ophelia was exactly the same after she was born as she was when I was pregnant with her and if that’s any indication of this baby’s personality, she’s just going to be mellow and quiet. And hopefully she’ll like me.
This baby can’t get here quick enough. Ophelia suddenly went from toddler to funny little kid overnight yesterday and I just can’t handle her sentences and her potty trainedness (YAY for that, actually), and how grown up she is. She is so funny and big all of a sudden, even though I keep telling her that she’s always going to be my little tiny baby. I need an actual small tiny human baby again.
