27 Weeks Down, 13 More To Go!
27 Week Bump Board ❤
I promise not to comment on how crazy fast this pregnancy is going like I do every other week! Instead I will make a comment on the fact that I am in my THIRD TRIMESTER and my pregnancy app said that if Elena was born prematurely at this point that her lungs are developed enough that she would be okay with medical assistance of course.❤ Its such a relief to hear something like that even though at my doctors appointment last Thursday he said baby is growing perfectly and I am looking amazing!
On that note,
Highlights and Lowlights of my pregnancy week 26-27
Confession... I actually took my iPad home with me to the land of no service or wifi and while I laid in the bathtub once
Brayden laid down for sleep I went to my notes and actually THOUGHT about things that I have experienced this past week.
Last Sunday I had a mini breakdown which resulted from an argument that Matt and I had.
Sunday is the only day he has off from work so we usually try to do something that is "family time" but
most of the time we end up going to the Luckless Store or to his parents.
I HATE going to the Luckless store on my day off because I am there EVERYDAY of the week.
He on the other hand is at his day job everyday and would like to use that free day to get a few things
done at the store that he hasn't been able to do during the week days.
Reluctantly I give in and agree to go but I hate that when we are here
Brayden gets cranky because he has gone on strike against his walker.
He doesn't like the way it restricts him from climbing and picking things up.
He would rather be crawling and walking along things but I don't want him playing on the cold, hard floor.
Another argument we have is that when we are at his parents or here at the store I am usually on my iPad
trying to get one of the many things done that I'm not able to do during the day while packaging
and shipping Luckless orders and taking care of Brayden.
Matt is extremely lucky that he has a job that allows him to be on his laptop advertising Luckless and many
other social media things 8 hours a day. He gets frustrated that I take advantage of the time
I have when his parents help me take care of Brayden those few hours a week.
I understand his frustration because it is the "only day" we both have off. But its also my only time off.
I tried to explain to him that I do so much for HIM, Luckless and Brayden that I need my blog and my instagram for myself.
Those are my releases and it's harder for me to juggle it all because at 7pm everyday we leave to go to our
temporary home where we don't have Internet. So I work all day and then I am out of service all night.
I enjoy those hours that we have as a family at the end of the day though.
Matt usually cooks dinner while I feed and bathe Brayden then get him dressed in his Pjs.
I let Brayden play for an hour before bedtime with all his toys while Matt and I usually watch a movie and cuddle together.
I feel blessed to have him away from the social media world those few hours a night and I know he feels the same way about me.
CONCLUSION OF THIS ALL IS...
I decided I need to manage my time a little better.
Maybe having a schedule for myself will help me be less stressed.
And also Matt started helping with Brayden a little more which has been amazing.
I love him for how understanding he is and for everything he does for me.
I can honestly say he has such a big heart and has grown to be an amazing man and father.
Heartburn kicked in this week.
Sore back thats more common at night and the morning.
TMI moment sore and throbbing lady part. ):
*apparently it is common due to the baby laying on blood vessels causing swelling.*
Blotchy face. Not acne just red spots.
Old stretch marks turning white.
Thankfully NO MIGRAINES THIS WEEK!
Also, knock on wood, no restless legs!
This week's big developments: This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (about the size of a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.
(I forgot to have Matt take a front bump photo, forgive me!)
