27+ weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 16 lbs

Maternity clothes? mostly, but I do have a skirt and a couple tank tops that aren't maternity but are stretchy and comfortable

Best moment this week: Washing the baby clothes and sheets, organizing some in the baby's room. And I love feeling him move around, it's the greatest feeling.

Movement: All the time! It's fun to watch my stomach move with his movements.

Food cravings: ice cream and cool whip

Labor Signs: mild contractions all the time, sometimes more frequently and more painful than others, but no true "labor" contractions.

Belly Button in or out? still in, it's never been an "outie" even at the very end of pregnancy (it's a pretty deep cavern apparently!), belly ring still in but starting to be more prominent through the shirts, so it looks like I have an outie.

Stretchmarks? nope. Got great genes that way!

How are you feeling? Today's not such a good day, pretty achy, tired, back hurts, fairly frequent contractions, well, probably more irritability than contractions, I'm crabby and I'm thinking maybe I have some adhesions as I've been having some pulling/pain off and on around c-section scar the last couple days.

What I am looking forward to: being able to sleep and being able to go more than 2-3 hours without peeing, hitting that third trimester mark in a few days!

What I miss: Sleep, being able to do things I just can't physically do right now.

Baby moving has just got to be the greatest part of pregnancy and ya, you gotta love those adhesions :b How did your fetal fibronectic test turn out? Good I'm assuming and hoping!

Lots of reassuring signs that things are going better than well... congrats thus far on such a nice, active little getstational... prayers that he bring you nothing but delight, smiles, belly laughs... and pure LOVE.

Oh, guess I never did post about that! Yeah, the ffn test was negative so the pesky irritability/contractions aren't doing anything, thank goodness!
