27 weeks

how far along?  27 weeks
how are you measuring?  29 weeks (I'll know a better estimate when I go to the doctor next week.)
size of baby? 14 1/2 inches long, almost 2 pounds, and about the weight of a head of cauliflower
heartbeat? 135 bpm (at our 24 week appointment)
total weight gain/loss? +17.6
maternity clothes? Yup!!  I'm loving them!!
stretch marks? No, not yet.  But the line underneath my belly is starting to get a little darker.  I also have a faint ring around my belly button that looks similar to the line under my belly button.  Weird.
sleep? Earlier in the week I was sleeping terrible.  I have been very congested and stopped up, but later in the week I started sleeping better and not tossing and turning so much.  Matt said one night I kept him up because I was so restless.  
best moment this week? Finishing Pearson's nursery.  Oh my word, it's going to be so cute!!  My Mom did such a good job on his bedding.   
movement? All the time.  A few nights ago, Matt and I just sat and stared at my belly.  He was squirming and kicking like crazy.  You could feel it and see it.  It's so crazy to watch my belly just  pop up and down!!   
food cravings? Still loving my Little Debbie Brownies and pears.  I eat a piece of pizza for lunch at school each Wednesday.  Since we didn't have school this week I didn't have my pizza on Wednesday.  On Thursday, Mom and I went out to lunch and I told her I was craving pizza.  I guess little P was missing his slice of pizza that I normally have on Wednesdays!! We went to Brooklyn's Pizza and my tummy was happy!! Oh and I can always go for a Sonic Banana Shake., brownies and banana shakes....I wonder if that is where the extra 17.6 pounds is coming from??
gender predictions? It's a BOY!!!  Pearson Davis Link!!!
what i miss:  Going on walks.  I've been really good about taking Izzie on walks in my 2nd trimester, but this week since I wasn't feeling well I didn't take a single walk.  And the weather was beautiful, so I'm sad that I didn't get to walk her this past week.  
what i'm looking forward to: My 2nd Spring Break!! Matt and I are taking off Wednesday-Friday to head up to Bella Vista, Arkansas to spend the week with his entire side of the family for his cousin's wedding on Saturday.  Matt is going to be playing lots of golf, but I'm excited to just prop my feet up and read some of my pregnancy books!!
how are you feeling? This week I haven't felt the greatest.  I've been all stopped up and congested.  I'm definitely feeling Braxton Hicks contractions daily.  Not too many though.  They don't hurt, they are just annoying.  And the bruised/tender feeling in my belly hasn't gone away.  It usually doesn't start hurting until around 3pm or later, but sometimes it starts earlier.  It's really weird.  It's like it has a time clock.  If I'm up and moving it turns into a sharp pain, so I've really had to make myself sit down and slow down some this week.  As soon as I sit down it feels better, and as soon as I prop my feet up and rest it goes away.  I'm going to talk to her at my appointment next week and make sure it's nothing I should be concerned about.

I can't wait to see the nursery completed. If it is anything like the rest of your house I know it will be super cute! Have fun at the wedding!

Hi Katy! I found your blog through Britni's and have been enjoying reading for a few weeks. We were at A&M about the same time and I just had a baby last May, so we have a lot in common! When I saw you liked banana shakes, I thought I might suggest Chick Fil A's banana pudding shakes. They are amazing! I will warn you though that they have pieces of cookie and banana like the pudding does, so if texture is weird for you during pregnancy, you might not like it.
