27 Weeks

27 Weeks. 
This bump is out of control. 
It just came out of nowhere 
and I'm like: 
"I HAVE THREE MONTHS LEFT TO GO?!?!?!" 
I can just see that 38 week ultrasound already: 
"Well, you're baby is already 10 lbs so I think we should schedule a C..." 
  

Baby Size
Rutabaga. 
File this under "vegetables I've never knowingly ate." 


Total Weight Gain
12.5 lbs
(-7.5 lbs with Aaron) 

According to today's exact reading, I lost a pound this week. 
But I'd been trending at 0-0.5 lbs gain, 
so I think this sudden drop is just a temporarily fluke. 
I won't be shocked if I gain 2 lbs next week to compensate, 
but I will be quite happy if this progress maintains!


Sleep
Decent. 
1 super bad night of insomnia Sunday night, 
but other than that, 
it's been good.


Cravings
Chick-fil-A. 
Grapefruit. 
Not together.


Symptoms of the Week
Bigness. 


What I miss
Range of motion. 
It's happening already. 
The belly is getting in the way. 
3 months from now and I may not be able to pee unassisted.


Still Running
Yes. Only once this week (thanks to year-end close & weather), 
BUT it was a crazy successful run. 
I tried out my belly belt 
and OMG THE DIFFERENCE. 
I didn't realize how unsupported my belly felt 
until I put this belt on and went for a run. 
WOW. 
Game changer. 
3.1 miles with almost no pain at all. 
Hopefully this amazingness continues to next week. 

  
Excited for
 Nothing super exciting. 
Another quiet weekend ahead. 
A playdate with friends but otherwise nothing planned. 


General Mood:
Good.
Besides this belly explosion, 
I feel great. 
No major aches or pains, 
nothing plaguing me throughout the day. 
Still get more tired than usual, 
but overall my energy level is pretty high.
