How Far Along? 27w, 5d - due October 15, 2015

Gender: BOY!

Weight Gain: 17.5lbs 

Maternity Clothes: No changes this week but I need to stock up on some workout clothes shortly.
Nursery: No changes this week here either. The room is in a major state of transition, but a lot can't happen until August for one reason or another. The only thing I need to cross off the list this week is ordering new hardware for the daybed and dresser.

Movement: Oh so, so, so much. I honestly asked Joel if a baby could move too much! Some of his movement at night is becoming more like body rolls which totally transforms my belly.  He also was hanging out on the right side for a few days this week which made for a very lopsided view. We got a few more rounds of hiccups this week too.

Symptoms: I felt a little slower this week and overall heavier. I'm noticing that weird things are getting harder....getting in low cars, picking things up from the ground, walking too long...but no major complaints and overall I would say that the 2nd trimester was very good to me!
Sleep: I get up a lot at night to use the bathroom, but overall sleep is pretty good and I haven't needed to take a Unisom in almost a month.
Joel: Heads to Ohio this week for a work but thankfully it's a short trip.

Workouts: Four - 1 hike, 1 spin, 2 gym sessions

Mood: Grouchy and short tempered this week

Cravings: Blueberry muffins have never tasted so good.

What I Miss: Nothing much this week actually....although I wouldn't turn down a French martini!

Random Things: I stalk my baby registry like it's my second job. I did this with my wedding too and every time I see a new item "completed" I get giddy! 

Best Moment This Week: It was nice to just be home and feel like we are back on routine (for now!). Having dinners at home, taking a bath in my tub, and going to bed early felt indulgent and lovely this week.

Looking Forward To: Another relaxing weekend and then next week my cousin Amanda will be in LA for a quick visit! 


  1. I feel the same way about movement! All of a sudden this week I've started to feel every single move he makes. Body rolls and all! It's wild! I read that that's normal up until week 32 and then the movements decrease some because he'll start to run out of room!
    Ally - Life as I know it

  3. GLOWING. Per usual :)

  4. You look so fabulous!!!! Getting closer! Did you ever get my email on baby items?
