Baby R-Week 27

Week 27- Baby R is the size of an eggplant, or head of cabbage!
The only picture from this week, I'll have better one for next week :)

Highlights/Lowlights of week 27
Highlights included a beautiful afternoon kayaking with some good friends last weekend, and feeling so many kicks! It seems like this kid never stops moving.
Enjoying a day on the lake
Another highlight was my Dr. appointment! I love getting to hear the heartbeat (which is staying right around 140, making it hard to guess boy or girl based on that old wives tale). I'm now done with appointments every 4 weeks, and moving to every 2 weeks- things are getting real!

The only lowlight was how long my cold has dragged on. I thought i was almost done with it last weekend, but it came back with a vengeance this week, resulting in a few more missed days of work. At least I managed to catch up on some much needed sleep :)

I'm not sure if this is a highlight or a lowlight, but a few of my students just figured out that I am pregnant this week, and only because I mentioned it! I guess its a testament to the observant nature of middle school aged boys.

Nada this week aside from Kayaking (which if I'm being honest was more of a gentle paddle and float around the lake). Week 28 has already surpassed week 27 in terms of exercise and we're only one day in!

My eating was all over this week depending on how I was feeling. I ate lots of cereal (vanilla almond oatmeal crisp!) and blueberries. Lots of watermelon and raspberries too!

How I'm feeling
Sick and tired! Thankfully that was easing up by the end of the week, and I almost feel like a normal human again.
I'm also feeling the baby partying 24-7.. it seems like it never stops moving! I'm not complaining, it is kind of fun and it hasn't hurt yet.. I'm told that could be coming up soon though!

Current projects/purchases
The nursery currently looks a little like this:

Future plans are to paint the walls (a grey color), paint the change table and take the crib to Will's dad's house. We bought the crib, mattress and change table  from a local swap and buy site for $100, but I decided I really want a white crib to go with the color scheme I had in mind. Will's dad had mentioned that he was looking at getting a crib for when he gets to babysit, so I figured he can take this one and I can get a different one instead of spending money on crib-safe paint and repainting the whole thing.. win win!

I have a grey/white/aqua scheme in mind for the nursery. Gender neutral-ish, and I can add navy accents if he's a boy, and maybe coral or pink if she's a girl!  I am soooo terribly horrible at trying to put colors and ideas together, so I'm hoping the end product doesn't look like a Dog's breakfast!


  1. I loved feeling baby movements except when she ran out of room and kicked me constantly in the ribs! Can't wait to see how the nursery turns out :)

    1. I am just waiting for the painful kicks to start happening... hopefully not anytime soon!

  2. can't wait to see nursery pics, i like the color scheme and like you said, you can switch it up depending on the gender!

    1. Thanks! I am hoping that it turns out how I envisioned it... we'll see!
