27th Week




So today, I officially reach the 3rd trimester. Wow. I can’t believe it went by so fast. The first few months seemed to have gone so slowly and now all of a sudden, I’m 27 weeks along! Only 13 weeks to go before my due date. That’s a little over 3 more months and Baby Bean will be here.

Last week I had my regular prenatal doctor’s visit, and again we heard the heartbeat. The doctor was also able to see the position Bean was in at the time, by feeling my belly and stuff from the outside. She was upside down, with her head pointing downwards and her legs and feet kicking up towards my ribs. I felt the kicks as she was so rudely disturbed by all that probing. Hehe. Poor girl. And then afterwards, she settled down and went back to sleep. That’s my girl!

I’ve come to sort of compensate for my inability to sleep at night. It appears that I can only sleep really restfully starting at around 4 or 5am. So now I don’t make any appointments (if I can help it) for work until at least 10am. That gives me a longer morning to just sleep it through so I can get my hours. It makes for very tired, and confused, grumpy mornings, but it appears to be getting just a tad better.

As for you ladies out there who warned me about the chest area during pregnancy, all I can say is: I believe you now. I’ve gone from a 32A to a 36B. Somehow I got wider. I’ve gained a total of 20 pounds so far, and now it’s around a pound a week extra. Yo boy!
