Heading into the 3rd Trimester: 27 Weeks

This week marks the last week in my 2nd Trimester. I am headed directly into the home stretch…and it feels good!

Baby Size: CLL is about 13.6-14.8″ in length and most likely hovering around 2ish lbs+. The fruit comparison this week is a rutabaga!

Fun Facts: This week, brain activity isoccurringand will become more complex as the weeks progress. Our baby is busy practicing inhaling and exhaling.

How I’m Feeling: I’m feeling BIG! I think it’s all set in, finally. My clothes are really getting snug, even some of my early maternity gear. I’ve also begun to experience some lower back pain on my left side. Not sure if that has to do with the fact that the baby seems to have gotten very comfortable hanging solely on my right side but my yoga instructor thinks I might be developing some S.I. pain (pain in theSacroiliacJoint). So, I’m taking some precautions when I’m practicing certain yoga poses.

Mach and I are off to our Childbirth Education class this weekend at the Prenatal Yoga Center. We are excited to get some more knowledge under our belts and an added bonus is that it’s being taught by our doula!

I’ll leave you with some photos of some new purchases (and a couple of gifts) for CLL.

The baby closet is starting to feel a little more full! I haven’t decided what will get folded in the dresser and what will get hung, but for now everything looks cute on the baby hangers.

How adorable are these little turtles!?

We are going to need a lot more of these, but I couldn’t resist the little elephants!

CLL’s very first Cuffy’s sweatshirt from G&G Watts 🙂

I’m obsessed with this aden + anais sleep sac from Auntie Coco…I wish they made one in adult size!
