27 weeks with Cheney

 The above picture was taken at 26 weeks while in Disney!
Isn't it crazy how much a baby belly can change in a week?! I feel like the whole shape is different now!
How far along?: 27 weeks

How big is your baby?: the size of a cucumber (finally about 2lbs!)
Total weight gain: up 10lbs total

Sex: sweet baby GIRL--Cheney Katherine
Maternity clothes: my favorites are the Michael Stars tanks (like above) because they are super comfy! I've basically been only wearing workout capris & maxi skirts.
  Sleep: I officially feel like I am 97 weeks pregnant. Or 97 years old. Either way, it's rough. Sleep has been rough.  
Symptoms: My varicose veins are still hurting pretty badly. They are awful on the back of my right leg so it just hurts when I sit on something hard and when I stand up. I also pulled a groin muscle from all the Disney walking. I could barely walk on Sunday & it is slowly getting better. That is making sleep difficult because it hurts to lay on my side. I'll most likely be a gimp for another week or two!  
Movement: Her movements have gotten so much stronger! I can really feel when she is flipping around & can see it a lot from the outside. This is by far my favorite part of pregnancy!
Best moment this week: DISNEY WORLD! We had so much fun on our trip. I am already excited about going back! All the walking combined with the heat was rough on me, but I survived! I wish I knew how many miles we walked last week! Also, we scheduled Cheney's actual birthday yesterday at my appointment! 12 more weeks until we meet our girl!
Food cravings: ice water & that's about it!

Belly button in or out: in but starting to flatten. Womp, womp, womp...
What I miss: Normal veins & a hip that doesn't feel like it is completely dislocated. Haha! See? I am an old lady!
What I'm looking forward to: G is finishing up school next Tuesday and I am looking forward to having a more relaxed schedule. It will also be the time when we try to move Griffin into his twin bed in their shared bedroom!

Your belly does look much different in just one week! So crazy! I'm excited to see you as a girl Mom. I bet you are just over the moon excited.
