27 weeks- blink -it's almost gone

Twenty seven weeks (and a half right now)- which means that in about 12 weeks I'll be having our baby girl! Yikes! Where did this PG go?

I had to break out the splints to wear on my wrists at night last week. *sigh*. My carpal tunnel isn't as bad as it was with Keifer's PG, but I've been really sore in my wrists, and fingers, making it difficult to bend my fingers. My fingers are swollen, so the fake wedding band is in place. My legs aren't as swollen as they were during K's PG, but....I'm not at the end of the road yet! I only have 2 pairs of shoes that still fit me, making it difficult to match my outfits for the day! My legs, knees and feet are also very, very achy by mid-afternoon -what I wouldn't do for a massage every other day! HA!

Keifer will now say "hi, Kyla" to my belly when I ask her to. *smile*. Kyla is a dancing fool, rolling around inside me like an acrobat. I love to feel it. Last night, CJ and I were catching up on shows on DVR, and she was flipping around, making the surface of my tummy look like a rippling pond. I love to watch it, it makes me so happy.

I work within an Elementary school building, and it's fun to watch the kids' reactions to me when they do their double takes when they see my PG belly. I had the most adorable first grade boy this AM ask me if I was having a baby. He had the biggest smile on his face. So sweet. tells me: This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.See what your baby looks like this week.
