Hello 3rd Trimester!!


Oh My…I am on the downhill slide! I hit the 3rd trimester today and in 91 days (give or take) Maddie will make her arrival!!

How far along: 27 weeks today!

How big is the baby: Maddie is now close to 2 1/2 lbs and about 14 1/2 in long.  If you want to compare that to a veggie, she is about the size of cauliflower. 

Total weight gain: Not stepping on the scale until I have to! 

Sleep: That varies…sometimes I get a good stretch of sleep in and others not so much.  For instance it’s 4am and I am wide awake and writing this blog post! 

Maternity Clothes: Do other clothes even exist anymore? Not for me! I did score a few new shirts and the dress above while shopping the other day.   

Food cravings: Watermelon continues to be a fav and add to that chicken salad! 

Food aversions: No real aversions. 


  • Multiple bathroom trips! And all the watermelon doesn’t help!!
  • Leg cramps! Though not as bad as they were there for a while. 
  • Hot Flashes! Or maybe that is because mother nature is having some extreme hot flashes right now!!
  • Swelling! Feet are no longer allowed to hang down for an extended amount of time.  The results are not pretty!

Movement: Stronger by the day! Maddie is starting to pack quite a punch and kick!! 

Gender: Girl!

Appointment: Next appointment is June 22nd.
