27 weeks

Today is 27 weeks. Holy smokes its finally starting to go faster. Next week we go to Georgia for a week, in February we visit family in San Diego for a few days, then it's less than a month till he is due. I can't wait.

I weighed myself today and was at 190. It's really hard to see. I've only gained 10 pounds the whole pregnancy but it's still only about 12 pounds from where I was when I had Leiland. I'm trying to not let it get to me but its a little hard. Yesterday I tried on a pair of maternity pants I had been wearing and sure enough they were too tight. I can't even wear them anymore. Not cool. A lot if my shirts are already starting to ride up and show my belly now too. It's stuff like that combines with my weight that get to me. 

Overall I still feel good. My back hurts often but baths and icy hot do help. I need to schedule a chiropractor appt for when we get back from Georgia. Baby moved a lot and it much stronger. I love feeling him. I've started to feel him more in my lower belly lately. I still put my hand there every time because I can feel it so much better that way. He does crazy somersaults and squirms that Leiland never did. The other day for the first time I felt him actually stretch out. Last night I ate Christmas dinner and was stuffed till 10pm. He had been laying transverse but it almost felt like he rotated some. No idea on his position now but he feels more vertical than before and when driving last night I felt like I had to lean back to make room for him. 

Now that Christmas is over my focus is on getting little mans room ready. The other day we made a big purchase and bought his crib bedding. I wanted to make it but I just wasn't finding what I wanted to make it work. So I looked on babysupetmall.com again and found one I love. It was on clearance too. $70 for the whole set. That's an awesome deal. So all the presents are out of baby's room I can clean up the Christmas wrapping station meds and start getting ready for him. I'm planning to have Tim rearrange the furniture. 

I feel pretty good. I've been sleeping better with Tim home. No longer staying up till 1am but now crashing about 10pm and actually tired when I go to bed. Leiland is still waking at night (2 year molars) so I get up to get him. In starting to get uncomfortable sleeping. My belly position is much closer to a side position. Well my torso is side laying but my chest is on the bed so I'm kind if twisted. But my pregnancy pillow isn't offering any additional comfort. Especially when I have to get in and out if bed numerous times. I get too tangled. 

I've noticed having to pee more often again. I knew it would come back just hoped it would wait a bit longer. I feel like I can per every 10 minutes. 

So that's basically 27 weeks.
