I got to weaR my rainboots one day this week! Yeah!

Not many pictures this week. Again, my ego is crushed.

How far along? 27 weeks. Only 13 weeks until he arrives. Ladies and gents, we have officially entered the THIRD trimester.
Weight gain/loss: I plead the 5th.
Maternity clothes? Well, duh.
Stretch marks? I'm really starting to dislike this and the maternity clothes question.
Sleep? Last nights was awful, but that's a completely different story. It hasn't been too terrible this week. Baby boy has been SO super active usually around 2-3:00 am.
Best moment(s) this week? Caderyn going to bed like a champ and sleeping in Sunday through Tuesday night. Baby has the hiccups! Caderyn kissing the belly and talking to his brother. More like yelling.
Food cravings: Asparagus. Sub sandwiches loaded with veggies.
Gender: Oh boy!
Belly button in or out? Looking more cavernous that it has ever looked before. Caderyn was trying to stick his fingers in there and that actually kind of hurt!
Movement? Yes. Hiccups usually after lunch. Lots of bounces around 10:30 and 11:00 p.m. and then the kiddo wakes me up between 2-3:00 a.m.
What I miss? Bending over and not struggling to pick something up or tie my shoes. I come up all out of breath. Feeling normal. I'm sore all of the time and feel so heavy and achy. I don't recall feeling this way so early with Caderyn. My lower back and lower abdomen has just KILLED me this week.
What I'm looking forward to: Sleeping on my back, right side and stomach without any concern.
Weekly wisdom: Go to bed early. Don't stay up to try and finish an already crappy movie. Just go to bed, chances are you will need your sleep.
Anything else?
  • I've been thinking more about my birth plan this week and what I want to try and do differently this time.
  • When I head to Phoenix in three weeks, I'm going to purchase one of those belly support things for when I work out. I notice that after 10 minutes I start to get really achy and sore in my lower abdomen area.
  •  I had my first ever (with this pregnancy) charlie horse on Wednesday morning around 2:30 a.m. Oh Lord how I despise those things. They hurt so much! I've lucked out so far with this pregnancy I think because I'm trying to drink a lot more water and exercise regularly. Nothing worked. I massaged, I stretched, I limped around my house and the dang thing wouldn't release. Finally I just put a heating pad on it and crawled back into bed. Two days later my leg STILL hurts.
  • I like getting my later evening kicks from this guy. It's my special time with him.
