While waiting for my glucose test I snapped a pic at my Doctors office

Gender:  BABY GIRL!!!
How far along? 27 weeks
Baby Size:  2 lbs and 14.5 inches long
Total weight gain: 16 lbs
Maternity clothes?  I caved & bought a Moo moo sized dress-shirt/pj top by Gilligan Morgan from Target.  When I get home I want to strip down and be comfy without anything around my waist, I wouldn’t be caught dead in this thing but boy is it nice when I get homeJ
Exercise:  Not a whole lot to be honest, I promised myself to do weights at home this week! I do park farther away to make myself walk more and I always opt for the stairs whenever possible.  I also have my Yoga class on Saturdays that I look forward to.
Recent happenings? I had my glucose test done last week and I have to say I didn’t think it tasted that bad, it tasted like a flat orange Fanta.  The nurse took blood an hour later and things went smoothly.  Afterwards however I felt dizzy and had the shakes which I think was because I hadn’t eaten much so I definitely recommend that you grab a bite to eat right afterwards.
How my life has changed so far:  I feel like I’m being let into a whole new world or an exclusive private club, you know the one you aren’t really apart of before having kids “The Mom Group”!  Before hearing about other people’s kids was like looking at someone’s vacation photos, you’re happy for them but you can’t relate.  Well now I find myself totally engrossed, it’s all fascinating and exciting.  I’m being told about fun Mom groups to join, tricks to get into the hot daycare spots, what pediatricians are total jerks and which ones are great, etc… My prenatal yoga class is also a great source for new Mama's because it provides you the opportunity to meet new women that can relate to what you are experiencing & you can swap prego stories.
Movement: All throughout the day now! They are getting stronger, she must be practicing her high kicks.  I do however feel like she is sitting on my bladder, which calls for frequent bathroom breaks! 
Food cravings: Grape nuts cereal with honey and milk. Still loving tons of fruit and veggies with ranch.    

Symptoms: This week has been good, I’m happy and excited!
Tonight: We have our hospital tour so I am looking forward to seeing the maternity area, where all the magic happens!

  1. You can even try fading the color of your long black sheepskin coat by rubbing very fine sand paper on usual wear places of the leather jackets you can even apply conditioner to soften the leather jacket mink collar from these spots.
