27 Weeks and 29 Years

How Far Along: I have officially made it through week 27 and am officially 29 years old as of Saturday!

Size of Baby as Relative to Common Household Fruit or Vegetable: Baby is the size of a head of cauliflower! 

Weight Gain:  19lbs. And I feel every. single. pound.

Gender: Sweet little beautiful girl!

Movement: Movements have lessened a little. She is back to breech position and I feel her little low kicks, but not as constant as I did last week when she was head down.  

Sleep: Sleeping like a champ. I have the nightly bathroom trips down to a science. 
What I miss: Shopping! Shopping and shopping. I love to browse stores, and I really miss my retail therapy. 
Cravings: frozen chocolate chips. The sweet tooth is not good! 

Symptoms: Moving pretty slow. 
Best moment of the week: My birthday was nice and quiet. My bro and his girlfriend came by and then my MOH, J went to dinner with us and spent the night. It was great staying up all night catching up with her.  B also put the crib together and it made my day! Walking by her room is such a treat. I can't wait to see it come together. 
Worst moment of the week: Friday night I got hit with the notion that this was my first birthday without my Grams. It hit me out of no where and it hit me hard. Grief is just difficult and I had a moment. Remembering all of the birthdays with her and all of our special times made me sad. Since she and Bremy passed within months of each other it's hard to think about one without the other. I miss them both so much. Last year on my birthday my family was in town and I was pregnant with Bremy. Pretty crazy to be pregnant again. I feel very lucky in that regard. 

Now it's a countdown to my Dr appointment on Wednesday. Just hoping things are holding steady!!
