Bump to Baby: 27 Weeks

You are now measuring about 14 and a half inches long and about two pounds. You are now able to recognize voices now so you can hear all the craziness that is going on out here which sometimes gets you moving, especially when you hear your brother screaming. Your taste buds are developing now which means you can tell different tastes about two hours after I eat through the amniotic fluid. You are also starting to hiccup which definitely feels like a weird spasm in my belly. You are definitely hiccup a lot already.

This was a pretty uneventful week. We have officially started our every two week appointments since we were so close to the third trimester. Which hey by the way this is the last week of the second
trimester which means you will be here before you know it! I had my one hour glucose test this week which was a bit rough but I kept the drink down and that's what's important. Of course I completely crashed after and ended up taking a nap for a good chuck of the afternoon. I am continuing to struggle with food and trying to find the right things to eat which is really frustrating. I am not sleeping all that great. I'm pretty uncomfortable and getting up a couple times a night to go to the bathroom. But at least the weather has cooled down so I can actually wear my maternity clothes since my regular clothes don't fit. Mostly I'm just doing my best to make it. It's hard being pregnant and keeping up with two active kids, but I'm doing the best I can even if that means the house doesn't get cleaned and things don't always get done.

Maternity clothes are easily the bane of my existence. This being my last kid I didn't really want to spend any money on more clothes which ended up being an issue when summer continued to drag out. I definitely didn't fit into my regular shorts which left me my gym shorts and my t-shirts except my t-shirts weren't really fitting anymore. It's was truly becoming frustrating. So I was definitely looking forward to the weather cooling down so I could switch to warmer clothes. I definitely had my fair share of maternity clothes for the cooler days. I had an October baby and a February baby so I was biggest when the weather was cooler. Of course I quickly found that I didn't really fit into my maternity pants because they were all too big so I did end up buying a couple new pairs. Then I found even the new ones were too big, but my regular pants were too small. I gain weight only in my belly which made it hard to keep the slightly wider maternity pants up. Not to mention it's hard to find maternity pants that are actually long enough and doesn't cost an entire payday. It's hard to stomach an expense of something that I will only wear a couple months and never again - last kid after all. So I'm making due the best I can as my belly continues to grow.
