27 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along:  27 weeks…only 90 days or less until Maddox is here!

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  10 lbs.  I gained 6 lbs in one month compared to my previous 4 pounds in 6 months!

Maternity Clothes:  LOVE them!

Best Moment this week:  hearing Maddox’s heartbeat at my doctor’s appointment.  Wade learned to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on the guitar, and I have enjoyed Maddox “dancing” to his daddy’s music! :)  Oh, I also passed my glucose test!!!

Gender:  It’s a boy!  Maddox Wade!

Movement: yes, and it is amazing! I think he is doing flips  in there!  He is very active after I’ve been on my feet a while and then decide to sit down…he thinks it’s time to play then!   Wade loves to play music for him because my whole belly will start shaking from him “dancing”.  He loves George Strait and Rascal Flatts!    He now moves in response to me rubbing or tickling my belly, and it is so cute!

Food Craving:  apple juice, fruit, honey nut cheerios

What I miss: cold turkey sandwiches and sleeping on my stomach!

Sleep: Wish I could get more of it!   I am constantly waking up and catching myself sleeping on my back or going to potty!

What I am looking forward to:   Next month’s monthly appt then I go every 2 weeks!  Getting closer to meeting my little man!

Belly Button:  it’s about to pop!

Symptoms:  left hip pain and BH contractions.  I cannot sleep without a pillow between my knees.

Here is the latest belly pic.  I had to cover my face with the camera since I just got home from a long day’s work, and I look P.I.T.I.F.U.L!

27 weeks


  1. I craved apple juice too. It was one of the few things I could actually keep down! You look adorable!

  2. Oh gosh meant to add...do you have a body pillow? That was such a lifesaver for me at night. I just found that a regular pillow wasn't long enough.

  3. I have a snoogle, and it helps somewhat. My doctor told me to take Tylenol PM before I go to bed, so hopefully that will help.

  4. You look so cute! I miss being pregnant! :) Savor all the memories! :)

  5. You are just "PLUM" adorable!!!! :)

  6. U look so good congrats and remember boys LOVE thier Mommies the most! So sweet!
