It’s funny really, just how much people think a pregnant woman’s body is public territory. I don’t mind it so much, but whoa! – I know other preggos you better steer clear of. I’m actually rather thankful for all the strangers that stop me in my tracks to tell me “you’re adorable” or “you’re the cutest pregnant woman,” because honestly, I could use a confidence booster from time to time. This pregnancy has been rather troublesome and I don’t feel that "glow” at all whatsoever.

On that note, here’s my update:

How far along? 27 weeks.
Total weight gain/loss: Yeah…like 43 lbs. Sshhhh!
Stretch marks? Maybe a few. (Oh, joy.)
Sleep: I wish! Can’t get much REM sleep when you need a potty break every half hour.
Best moment this week: Our 2 year old laying his head on my belly and whispering “baby in mommy’s tummy.”
Movement: I think we’re going to have another gymnast.
Food cravings: Strangely…soups and smoothies.
Gender: Boy.
Labor Signs: The occasional Braxton Hicks, but nothing serious.
Belly Button in or out? My cavernous belly button is still holding on.
What I miss: Bending. Painting my toenails. Focusing. Being quick witted.
What I am looking forward to: The holidays. Nesting. Maternity leave and bonding with all my children.
Weekly Wisdom: Deep breaths.
