How I’m feeling: Really good. I feel like I’m losing lung space though, lol. This baby is forcing me to have excellent posture. If I hunch over, I feel like I can’t breathe as well. I’ve been quite sensitive about everything (picture PMS on steroids). When people say “Woah! You’re really getting big now” I cry. I’m off work for the summer (I’m a teacher) so I’m able to take my time with housework and dinner. I can take my time making breakfast and getting my bootay to the gym. I’m also getting anxious and a little nervous about labor & delivery. My lower back is hurting too. What To Expect When You’re Expecting app on my iPhone says it is completely normal and is to be expected at this stage of the game, so I’m not too concerned.
New and exciting: We have officially started to work on the nursery!!! I had my first encounter with TUMS. My heartburn has been bumping lately. My cravings for all things spicy and/or acidic (jalapenos, hot cherry peppers, crushed red pepper, tomato sauce, ketchup, vinegar) have been aggravating it. Lindsey (twinsie) gave me a couple of TUMS and it put my acid reflux in check. Phew! Sweet relief!
Weird Stuff: My belly button is looking pretty gross. It’s almost smooth with a little speed bump in the middle. Ew. I’ve notice small beauty dots on my belly and arms. My eyes have been watery and burning lately. It’s getting kind of hard to put my compression pantyhose on because my belly gets in the way.
Cravings: Lots of the same stuff. Tomato sauce, peppers, strawberry shortcake ice cream bars, cherries.
Aversions: asparagus (still), grilled or dry or plain chicken, pizza.
Baby is the size of: a rutabaga
The baby at 27 weeks:
- He or she’s practicing inhaling and exhaling with his or her rapidly developing lungs.
- It’s official: Baby’s showing brain activity! And its brain will keep on getting more complex.
