TWO weekly bump pics now since I changed it up a bit and enhanced my weekly stats pic...so now these lovely posts you get TWO of them. Excited, aren't you?!
Again, I get so confused with when the different trimesters start cause every freaking app is different...but it seems that the general consensus is that week 27 begins the 3rd trimester, so HELLLLLLLLLOOOOOO last third of pregnancy! I'm gonna reference the chart below for my official dates from now on.
Anywho, what's been going on?! Not much. Sort of. Other than some random bouts of nausea have come back this past week and I do not like those AT ALL. They're giving me flashbacks to this early pregnancy feelings and I doooooo not like being reminded of those. I know some women get nausea and "morning sickness" back in the 3rd trimester so I'm really hoping that's not coming back and these are just random waves. I have been feeling a TON of pressure in my ribs and upper chest this past week -- this kid is definitely sitting high up it seems and I get super winded walking down the hallway and up the stairs. I've also been feeling a ton of Braxton Hicks contractions lately. Completely painless, just frequent tightening of my belly that I don't ever really remember feeling with my last 2 pregnancies! Oh, and TMI, but my boobs are totally ready for this kid and remember they'll be the ones feeding him/her, because this past week HOLY LEAKAGE. Which I take as a good thing (cause I always get paranoid if I'm going to produce enough even though the past 2 times it's been no problem) but still I wasn't expecting that. Still lots of movement (more and more each day) but not as much as I remember with the last 2 (I think that's because of my now anterior (front) placenta blocking some of the blows) and I'm enjoying every little kick and punch thrown my way.
So there's probably some TMI week 27 pregnancy tid bits for you. Sorry. Not really. If we have #4 I want a handy-dandy little reference to look back on (like I do for Rosie) to compare and contrast...and help make my educated gender guess, which right now I still say is TEAM PINK.
Here's a fun little comparison snap of almost 27 weeks with Rosie on the left, and #3 on the right. I definitely look bigger and higher than the last go'round. Face expression is pretty similiar.
Just like with Rosie, still not linea nigra (pregnancy vein on the belly) yet -- I'm sure it'll show up soon! Oh how I wish I'd have blogged or taken belly pics with Patrick to compare to as well...ahhh, live and learn.
That's about all I've got for week 27 friends! I have my next OB appointment next week (after my week 28 blog post, which I'm sure you're already looking forward to) where I have my glucose test...praying already I pass it!! That's it friends...until week 28...have a good one!
