27 weeks

Wow. It is my last official week in the 2nd trimester! I'm quite excited to get to the 3rd trimester. =) I just realized that I haven't updated in a few weeks. My parents bought their first house! So I helped them move and clean. My grandparents from California also came up to help with the move in stuff, so I've spent the past couple weeks hanging out with them.

How far along are you?  27 weeks 1 day

Best Moment this week?  My husband only works 2 days this week thanks to Independence day being tomorrow. =) I'm really looking forward to all of the time I get to spend with him. He's been working 50+ hours a week and working on school stuff, so I haven't gotten to really see him lately. 

Baby's growth? According to the bump.com, the baby is the size of a rutabaga. He is 13.6 to 14.8 inches and 1.5 to 2.5 pounds. I don't know about any of you, but the rutabagas I've seen up here are pretty small. Definitely not over a foot long. Hmmm....

Cravings?  Frozen yogurt. And french fries. I'm pretty sure I could live off of those two things.

Maternity Clothes?  Only in the shirt department. I am still fitting into my pre-pregnancy jeans.

Movement? Tobin is transverse, and so when he kicks, I can definitely feel it in my hips. He likes to chill more than anything else though.
What I miss.... having a real diaper bag. My diaper bag broke about a month ago. I've been searching for a diaper bag that could hold two babies worth of stuff easily and keep it organized, and I finally found one. My husband and I just have to see where we can fit it into the budget before Tobin comes. I've been using a big purse to haul around Linnea's stuff.

Thoughts from the family....  My mom keeps asking me if we are done after this one. (I'm pregnant with baby #2) She keeps pushing my husband towards a vasectomy, when in all honesty she should have nothing to say about it. 
Something I'm Excited About.... My sister in law graduated from college! Which means that she and I get to hang out a lot more now! 
Discussion Question: My plan is to have a natural drug free childbirth. If Tobin stays transverse however, we'll be looking at a c-section. The idea of a c-section really scared me at first, but I know that God is in control of everything and that whatever happens during this pregnancy, he has his hand in it. I'm thankful that if I do have to have a c-section, I won't have to have labored for hours before it.


  1. Wow, 3rd trimester already?! That's awesome!

    How wonderful that you get to spend some extra time with your hubby; I have to say, I'm a little jealous.

    I love your answer to the discussion question. God IS in control, and that is so comforting!


  2. My fourth baby was in a bad position (sunny side up) until about 37 weeks....at which point I got tired of it. There is a website called spinning babies that tells you exercises to do to get babies into the best position for birth. It worked for me and might be worth a shot.
