Pregnancy Update: 27 Weeks

This is my last week in the 2nd timester! Only 13ish more weeks to go!
This week baby weighs almost 2 pounds and is about the size of a head of cauliflower.
He measures in at an estimated 14 1/2 inches long with legs extended.
I can tell he is getting stronger each week because his kicks and movements become more intense over time. 
Sometimes he is so active it feels like popcorn being popped in my stomach!

 I'm not sleeping as well at night.
Some nights when I lay down I get really bad heartburn.
I've discovered that sleeping with two or three pillows to elevate my head helps. 
Also, not eating right before bed helps as well.
Between the heartburn, waking up 1-2 times per night to use the restroom and the limited sleeping positions, some nights are harder than others.
I guess these are just some of the things that come with being pregnant!
I'm still craving lots of fruit and have noticed a major increase in appetite this week!
I feel like I could just eat non-stop because I'm always hungry!
I've been avoiding overeating by bringing healthy snacks to work with me and eating small meals throughout the day ~ but this doesn't mean I don't indulge from time to time...!

I've also been on the lookout for a crib and found one that we love!
The remodel of the nursery/upstairs of our home is more than halfway done and I'm so excited to be able to decorate and prepare our sons room for his arrival.

Every little thing about this pregnancy excites me because with each new development I am realizing how close we are to September... and we cannot wait!

♥,  Denise

So happy to hear you're feeling well, well besides the sleeping & heartburn. I always found laying in my side with a pillow under my belly was comfortable. I used the boppy sometimes too.

I hope you stay cool this summer. Drink lots of cold water. Maybe little meals will be better.

All the best.

You look beautiful Denise! You are a month ahead of me and I've heard from 23-27 weeks the baby gets much bigger, and so do we. I can only imagine how much more difficult good sleep will get towards the end. Can't wait to see the nursery/upstairs project when it's done. Yay for little boys :)
