[she is 27 weeks pregnant]

How far along: 27 weeks
Size: A bunch of bananas
Symptoms: The exhaustion is still there but nowhere close to how bad it got last week. This week is more indigestion (or the broccoli I poorly chose to eat last night). I'm having more backaches and trouble getting comfortable.
Prepping for baby: We ordered her car seat! We chose the Nuna Pipa based on safety, reviews, and it's just pretty snazzy in general. Plus it is SO lightweight. It's one of the lightest on the market without compromising any safety. We got to play with one a couple weeks ago and really loved it in person too. I almost got the beautiful purple (blackberry) color but when we saw how beautiful the black (night) color is in the store, we chose that instead. Sometimes black is just too classy to pass up. I'm trying to space out ordering her large items so that I have something to consume my mind rather than D-day anxiety. Within the next month we will order her crib and stroller as well.
Stretch marks: Still in the clear!
Sleep: It's getting harder and harder to get comfortable. Especially with a big gas bubble stuck in my stomach most nights. But I've been getting 6-8 hours a night and sometimes more. I still can't nap during the day like normal pregnant women apparently can but I'm happy that the intense death-like exhaustion eased up from last week.
Movement: She is still most active at night and in the morning. Of course when I succumb to the sweet cravings, she moves a lot too. Josh and her still play poke n' kick and it's about the most fun game ever.
Cravings: Sweets are still taking the lead. My glucose test is next week so I'm really trying to limit the craziness (not that I really ever did get crazy).
Changes from last week: My belly is definitely bigger (buckling shoes is comedic).
Best moment of the week: Josh and I had a weekend to ourselves which was really nice. We have been on the go the last couple months with friends, weddings, family, etc. It was nice to just laze around and have a Netflix marathon, order pizza, and enjoy the time together.
Miss anything: Energy still. I have so much on my to-do list and not enough go-juice to do it all.
Looking forward to: Baby shower at the end of this month. Getting my glucose test out of the way late next week will be nice too.
Scripture for the week: Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. - James 1:17  -- The magnitude of this gift growing within me is still definitely not lost on me. God is good all the time and all the time, He is good.

No cat sighting today (except for the hidden cat faces in my Lily Pulitzer for Target dress) and I just noticed my chalk ran on "control"... haha oh well! :)
