27 Weeks

27 Weeks

Baby Size: Lettuce 
(vague) 


Current Weight: 167.0 lbs
Weight Baby #2: 150.5 lbs
Weight Baby #1: 158.0 lbs

THIS IS THE WEIGHT I WAS 
WHEN I GAVE BIRTH TO OLIVER 
AND I HAVE 3 MONTHS TO GO!!!!!


Sleep
Suprisingly good.
It's cold out now and
I LOVE SLEEPING IN THE COLD.
If I can see my breath in the morning,
then the house is the perfect temperature.

DST was good to us
and it's helped me wake up earlier,
which I always prefer.


Cravings
All that damn Halloween candy


Symptoms of the Week:
Constipation!
So uncomfortable and not going away. 
I am eating apples and pears and PRUNES 
and guzzling water 
and taking stool softeners 
and there is no end in sight. 
I am rapidly approaching the forced laxative area, 
which pregnant women are not supposed to do 
but DESPERATE TIMES, people. 


Movement
On Wednesday morning, 
Oliver cuddled with me in bed 
and Baby started kicking up a storm. 
Oliver had both hands on my belly 
and every time baby kicked or rolled or punched, 
Oliver broke out into hilarious fits of laughter. 
It was adorable. 
I want to bottle that up forever. 


Exercise Status:
I've been keeping up my walk/run with podcasts. 
On Tuesday I got up to 0.68 mile jog 
before lapsing into my walk (2.25 miles). 
I'm just loving the Jonathan Van Ness "Curious" podcasts. 
It keeps me so entertained. 


Excited For
My first Bar/Bat Mitzvah this weekend!
Adam's cousin's boy/girl twins are being called to the Torah tomorrow.
In my college days I catered Bar or Bat Mitzvahs celebrations,
but I've never attended one as a guest.
Adam, of course, being both Jewish
and growing up in a highly Jewish area,
has attended dozens
and does not share my same enthusiasm.
Apparently the ceremony (correct word? no)
is about 1.5-2 hours long.
And here I thought Catholics were the ones with long services!


General Mood
I'm rapidly approaching the 
"I'm sick of being pregnant" stage. 
Pants are difficult. 
Tying my running shoes is difficult. 
The constipation is a KILLER. 

That said, my mood overall is good, 
as I love the holiday season. 
I love gift buying 
and holiday parties 
and all that stuff. 
Plus this cooler weather is HEAVEN. 
We are supposed to see freezing temps next week 
and I AM HERE FOR IT!

  1. I've been to one Bat Mitzvah and I can attest that the service is very long and boring. I guess that's why the parties afterward are so over the top- it's a way of compensating you for that 1.5-2 hours of your life you'll never get back, ha!
