Size of baby: She should be around 2 pounds now. However, 3 weeks ago during the u/s, the tech said she was measuring 1lb7oz....so she could be bigger:-) I guess we will find out at her next growth u/s next week.
Weight: I am currently up 12 lbs. Thanks to losing about 6 since getting Gestational Diabetes 3 weeks ago.
Maternity clothes: seriously?!?! It is all I live in. I need to find a nice dress for a formal military dinner next week...that could be a challenge!
Sleep: Sleep is getting harder to come by. It is getting harder to roll over and shift positions the bigger my belly gets. But that is okay, because it is fun to wake up in the middle of the night and feel my baby girl kicking and dancing in my belly!!
Best moment of the week: Pretty uneventful week....I guess making it to 27 weeks! 1 more to go till 3rd trimester!!
Movement: TONS of movement. I am blessed she is an active one, less worry for me. However, she really likes to stretch, and that can get a little uncomfortable.
Symptoms: Gestational Diabetes that is staying under control with diet, sciatic nerve pain that I have gotten ALOT of relief from physical therapy last week. She taught me a few good stretches, and so far it is helping!
Food cravings/aversions: Well, now that I can't have sweets, of COURSE that is all I want to have!! I crave just about everything I can't eat! Oh well, 7-9 weeks left, I can do it!
Gender: Still a Beautiful HEALTHY baby GIRL!!!! Miss Avaleen Rose (Ava)
Belly button in or out: Still in, however, I did notice today that it is getting REALLY shallow!
Stretch marks: They wont stop appearing!! I am going to look like and 80 year old woman when this is all said and done!
What I miss: My husband. He is gone AGAIN! UGH!
What I am looking forward to: My next growth scan next week!
Weekly wisdom: There are only 2 items at the fair that are diabetes friendly: Steak on a stick, and chicken on a stick.....oh, and the BIG turkey leg...not a whole lot of fun to go to a fair when you can't eat the food!!!
Dream of the week: Ohhhhh....I had a GOOD one this past week, but can't remember it! I have been having TONS of dreams with all my exes in them though...what do you think that means?!?!?!
