baby #3: 27 weeks

27weeksBaby’s size: About 15 inches long and just over two pounds!
Maternity clothes?:
 Yes, plus some regular loosely-fitting tops. I’m pretty sure that non-maternity shirts actually make my belly look even bigger, though (see above)!
 Well… clumsiness? Ever since we moved in to our house, I’ve been afraid of falling on the stairs, and this week it finally happened. Luckily, I caught myself after about 4 or 5 steps, but I bruised my tailbone. My hips have been a little sore too, but I think it’s just from falling. Thankfully, baby is just fine (and I’ve got a definite grip on the handrail every time I go up or down the stairs now)!
 Good-quality when I’m sleeping, but we stay up too late as usual. I’m napping all the time lately.
She had a few days where she just didn’t seem as crazy… but lately, she’s made up for it by never stopping her dance party! I’ve been genuinely shocked by how strong her kicks can be! Sometimes, it even feels a little uncomfortable. This princess has some tough feet!
Whipped cream. I feel like that’s an odd craving to have, but I want to put it on everything sweet.
What I miss:
Nothing really!
Anything making you queasy or sick?:
I’ve had a good bit of nausea this week. My own morning breath can turn my stomach, and by dinnertime, I’m usually feeling sick again. It is what it is, so I try not to complain. I also seem to get shaky easily still.
Belly Button in or out?:
Ran 22.6 miles, walked 4.2. Fitbit total: 93,004 steps.
Loving all her movements and just trying to enjoy this time, because I know it’s going to go so fast!
Best moment this week:
 Enjoying so much time at the pool with my family! 🙂
Looking forward to:
Really working on the girls’ room and getting started on the nursery.
Big sisters: Kaya keeps asking me if my baby can come out in September (I think she wants to share a birthday month)! She will also sometimes tell me that she can’t eat a certain food because “her baby doesn’t like that” (she sometimes has a pretend baby in her belly, and other times, her baby has apparently already come out)! Kaelyn sometimes touches my belly with interest, but I’m not sure she really understands that there’s a real baby in there.
27 weeks with Kaya; 27 weeks with Kaelyn.
