HELLO THIRD TRIMESTER!!! At 27 weeks, Lexi Grace is 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.
Total Weight Gain: 12 lbs
Gender: IT’S A GIRL!!!!!
Movement: I always said that Carter was active in the womb, but I’d have to say that if little Miss is anything out of the womb like she is in… then she will give her brothers a run for their money!!!
What I miss: Not feeling huge! I know this is actually the good part and it will only get much worse but I really am not sure how my stomach always stretches MORE ha!
Sleep: Sciatic nerve is making sleep interesting as I cant always get comfortable, or I get stuck in positions. Oh its comical!!
Symptoms: Sciatic nerve again… oh that sciatic nerve!
Notes: Like her description for this week says, I have been feeling lots of hiccups. Very crazy feeling! Also she officially has her own room! All the boy stuff is moved out and not Mommy is in FULL nesting mode!
Cravings: anything fruity and the ice attack is back!
What we are looking forward to: I get to have another ultrasound on the 11th and we cant wait to see our sweet girl again!
