How far along: 27 weeks
How big is baby: size of a bunch of bananas, about 14.5-15 inches long
Symptoms: Still tired, but the sun being out this week and daylight savings time starting has helped. My restless leg issues have been bad this week. The other night I ended up doing like 40 squats at 3 am in the bathroom trying to get them to calm down. If I get off my butt and walk on the treadmill it definitely helps, but being tired really kills my motivation. Heartburn started about a month ago. It’s mostly when I’m hungry. Tums has been enough to quell it until I eat.
Movement: still super active. She can get my belly rolling, but of course when I try to catch her on video she stops
Sleep: not too bad if I can get my RLS under control. I still wake up a lot, but that’s par or the course and I know I won’t sleep through the night until she’s born
Food cravings? hamburgers, fruity candy, Mexican food
Anything making you queasy or sick? too much carby or sweet stuff
Next appointment: OB appt 4/14…some time after 3/19 I have to go in for my GD testing. I certainly don’t think I’ll pass the 1 hour since I failed it the last 2 pregnancies. I’m just hoping I can pass the 3 hour one like I did last time.
One app I have calls 27 weeks the 3rd tri, but I’m pretty sure more OBs count 28 weeks as the start of 3rd so I’ll stick with that.
