Weeks 27 and 28
Percentage Cooked: 70%
Baby Size: More than a foot long and over 2 pounds!
Countdown to Baby: Less than 12 weeks (199 days down, 81 to go!)
Symptoms: Girlfriend is clum-zzzzy. I almost fell about 10 times this weekend until I finally cut up my big toe almost falling. The pain in this big toe has been unmatched. The fuss that this “injury” has created only confirms that I am going to suck at childbirth. suck. suck. suck.
I’ve been getting shin cramps in the middle of the night. I know…I need to drink more water. But then I wake up because I have to pee 3 times. Lose – lose, people!
My feet are throbbing by 5pm. My ankles are slowly making their progression into cankles.

All in all, I am slowing down.
Cravings: Sarah + Double Stuf Oreos = best friends forever
Weight Gain: 20 lbs. confirmed at my 27 week appointment! So…approximately…MORE than that!
Why thank you, Adam Levine!
Related Purchases: A scrapbook and a photo album (with projects to come) and a shower dress that didn’t work out
Fear of the Week: Our upcoming ultrasound and our trip to New York
Relief of the Week: I’m officially in the THIRD TRIMESTER – yippee!
Randomness: Gifts continue to come. We are SO blessed! We’ve put everything together that we have received. I love having all of the baby stuff around the house ♥
Acquaintances and strangers are so sweet. Everyone is interested in my due date, the gender of the baby, and how I’m feeling. AND they tell me I look so cute. Thanks, peeps!!!
We took an Infant CPR class on Monday. I kept hitting our mini-baby’s head on the table. Oops.
Scott’s Quote of the Week: The mosquitos are BRUTAL right now. Our area is going to be sprayed to get to rid of those suckers (pun intended) this weekend…via aircraft. Craziness, I know!
Sarah – “That’s great that they’re spraying for mosquitos this weekend, but I wonder how healthy that’s going to be for the baby.” Scott – “It’ll be fine. You don’t spend that much time outside, anyway. How is it going to be for my BEER is the more important question.” Scott’s brewing up a batch on Saturday. It always comes back to the beer, doesn’t it Trottier?!
Life has been so busy – thank you for sticking around and still caring about this little ol’ blog.
Love you all – xoxo!
p.s. My Southern shower’s on Saturday – can’t wait!
