27 Week Pregnancy Update

 

 

How far along:
28 weeks.

 

Days until due date:
84 days.

My bump:
Feels so big and heavy now. The midwife measured the bump at my appointment this week and he is measuring in the 90 percentile which is a little scary.

 

Weight changes:
Not sure again this week, I have yet to buy a new set of scales.

 

Stretch marks?
Nope, not yet still putting on Palmers Cocoa Butter every night before bed over my belly, boobs, hips & back.

 

Cravings:
Milky Stars mmmmmmm.

 

Sleep:
I’ve been struggling a little this week with heartburn at night which makes it really hard to relax. I also keep waking up in the middle of the night so, so, SO hungry but I refuse to get out of bed and eat at 4am. On the plus side, my back pain hasn’t been nearly been as bad this week.

 

Symptoms:
I have had more pain across my belly this week, I did ask the midwife about it and she said that it is probably just my muscles stretching more and more but if I ever get it with sickness to phone a midwife immediately.

My back still aches a little but it is more bearable this week because I don’t feel like I need paracetamol to make it through the day anymore.

The heartburn at night is starting to get a little unbearable, I looked for something to help at the shop tonight but I couldn’t find anything. I will have to take a trip to the pharmacy this week and finally get something to help.

Constant hunger. I wake up hungry in the middle of the night, I get it during the day too but it is never just feeling a little hungry, I feel STARVING even if I just had a big mean an hour ago.

 

 

Best moment this week:
Having a nice quiet evening with Ash this weekend, he has been working overtime the past couple of weeks to bring in a little bit more money for Christmas and it has been hard to spend any time together.

 

Worst moment this week:
I had the worst pain across my belly when I got out of bed yesterday and I was in so much pain waddling my way round Aldi.


Miss anything?
Being able to walk up the stairs without getting out of breath.

 

Maternity clothes:
FINALLY, I have ordered some new maternity jeans from H&M and I can’t wait for them to arrive.

 

Movement:
He has been giving me some big kicks in the side at night this week which has took me by surprise because they were so strong and a little painful. I’ve also been feeling his little baby hiccups which are the cutest.

 

Gender:
Baby Boy 🙂

 

Belly button in/out:
Still in but It is on its way to popping out for sure.

 

Mood:
I’ve been good this week but really looking forward to starting my maternity in 4 weeks, the belly pain has been getting a little bit too unbearable at night.

 

Looking forward to: 
My first antenatal class tomorrow.
See you next week x
