27 week pregnancy update

Published May 31, 2014 by ivfdream

How far along? Week 27-nearly 7 months! Slow down, pregnancy!

Total weight gain: 22 pounds or 1 stone, 8lbs. Stayed the same this week.

Started at 143 lbs. Am now 165 lbs and am 1 lb over recommended weight gain.

Was away for a few days and nights and my bump has grown in 3 days, I am sure of it!

Maternity clothes? Yes.

Stretch marks?

Yes! Loads. Mostly morning and evening and in bed. Love watching my belly move up and down when I am sitting down. Wonder what other people think!

Best moment this week:
Finally, looking pregnant and not just a bit chubby!

Miss anything? Running and a glass of wine. I sound like an alcoholic but we were away for a break and the weather was fabulous. A glass of wine would have been nice. I am having coffee every day now for last week so know I will have to stop that but it is sooo hard!

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off: On. No bloating of feet or swollen ankles.

Happy or moody most of the time: Had a few days of feeling a bit down for no reason this week 😦

Looking forward: Buying things for the nursery. DH has planned and designed the nursery with a grey and yellow winnie the pooh theme. He also bought some buzzy bees for decorating it, so cute!

Food cravings: Had craving for fizzy orange and lemon again.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Yes, had severe pain in stomach and sickness last night. Had to go to toilet and had horrific diarrhea. Thankfully, it went but felt worried Think it was the lunch I had or just plain, old pregnancy… Feel fine today.

Gender: not finding out.

Symptoms: movements and tightening of vagina. Also, heartburn returned two nights out of seven this week.

Labour signs: no! Far too soon.
