Tuk Tuk Thursday – 27 Weeks



photo 2a

  • How Big Is Baby: A rutabuga (I don’t even know what that is), at 13.6 to 14.8 inches and 1.5 to 2.5 pounds, he/she’s not just getting bigger, he/she’s getting smarter. He/She’s practicing inhaling and exhaling with his/her rapidly developing lungs. It’s official: Baby’s showing brain activity! And his/her brain will keep on getting more complex.

  • Sleep: Peeing in the middle of the night is growing in frequency and the few feet walk to get there is getting harder due to some lower back pain, but otherwise still ok.

  • Diet/Cravings/Aversions: I’m eating a whole lot of apples and cheddar cheese lately.

  • Exercise: Unpacking… and walking… so yes.

  • Movement: Still plenty for me, but a bit shy around others.

  • The Belly: Belly button is no longer an innie… but just flat.  Weird.  Oh and that tinted line from belly button down has made a slight appearance, but you really have to stare at the belly in the mirror to find it (which clearly I do, all the time).

  • What I’m Loving: Still our new apartment and organizing and getting ready.  In fact, right next to me is our car seat and stroller… and it makes me teary to see.

  • Worries: None.

  • Other Symptoms: A Braxton Hicks contraction… I think.

  • What I’m Looking Forward to: More holiday parties, our babymoon, and overall nesting.

  • Best Moment of the Week: Tuk Tuk receiving his/her first Hanukkah presents!!!



Bump Progression…
