How far along: 27 weeks, 4 days Weight Gain: 18.5lbs Sleep: ugh. horrible. Terrible. My back hurts so bad I have been waking up every night in pain. Nothing works. I've tried a body pillow, pillows in between my legs, a wedge maternity pillow under my belly, pillows behind my back, sitting up with pillows as if in a recliner position, wearing a bella band for back support....seriously, believe me now that I have tried everything!? I am going to borrow a friends Snoogle today and I am praying it helps!!! It's crazy just how quickly these problems begin! Best moment this week: went to the doctor yesterday and we are measuring right at 28 weeks, so on time/a little bit ahead. I am just so excited to know he is doing great growing strong and healthy in there! Food Cravings: still sweets Movement: LOVE feeling and seeing him move. My belly has been bouncing all day today and it's such a neat thing to see and feel at the same time. What I miss: sleeping, not having back pain What I am most looking forward to: our 4D ultrasound which is scheduled for Feb 13. My prenatal massage I scheduled for this Friday Milestones: This is the last week of the 2nd trimester! It was fun, but I'm ready to move on and get closer to meeting this little guy (and yes I realize the back pain/sleep issues will only become worse...) Workouts: still working out about 4 times per week. I am still doing my prenatal workout video and walking on the Treadmill.
I'm a 29 year old girl living in Birmingham, Alabama with my husband, our son Baylor, and our two dogs, Max and Gracie. Originally from Atlanta but was sucked into the slower paced lifestyle in Alabama. I work as a therapist with adolescents in a psychiatric hospital and love what I do. I feel like every year is better than the last and I want to make the most out of my life. Enjoy traveling, reading, running, and spending time with friends and family. Had our sweet baby April 2012 and am in love with him more each day!
