27 Weeks Pregnant
I think it is absolutely insane that in 10 short weeks our Baby will be Full term and therefore be safe to arrive at any given time. Crazy. There is so much to do and I am definitely feeling the pressure. Although when I do think about it (I will make a list of what needs to get done so I can start tackling it) There really isn't that much to do...but they are just time consuming. I am getting so darn excited to meet this little man...this little one that has been kicking me for the past few months :)
My Birthday is creeping up as well. I can't believe I will be 27 Years Old. This blows my mind! I always said I wanted to be done having our Children by the time I was 30 Years Old. But since we want to have a couple more after this Babe...I will be hitting the 30's while still going strong with the baby making :) Hehe. I just have to convince Hubby that 4 just isn't enough for us! Really...Really...why can't I have 4+ Children? Who says? Why do you only have to have 2-3 now a days??? Back then they had BIG families. My Kookum (Grandmother) had 6 Children. 4 Girls and 2 Boys (1 Girl passed away as a baby I have never met her...and 1 of my Uncles passed away about 5 Years ago) But I really admire my Kookum. Especially considering her babies are all close in age and the last born where 2 of them (twins) I Love my Kookum, So proud of her and what she has done in life!
I often catch myself dreaming of having a big Family like she did. We have it so easy in today's world, imagine how they lived back then? Imagine doing laundry in a bucket with a wash board...or heating water...gah...we have it easy. So there it is my dream of being a Mama to a billion kids. Haha!
How does Mama feel? Well as we speak I got some heartburn...I actually had it all day today, just chillin in my throat all day. Puke. I feel uncomfortable. I feel sooo tired. But I also feel great too...if that makes sense. I feel lots of movement from this little man. Lots of kicking and punching, and some hiccups once and a while, and a whole lot of turning. Definitely feeling it on the ol' bladder as well, which is not a fun thing. I am feeling like I want to start getting things down around my house...like really start getting them done.
How Big is Baby for Week 27? The size of a Rutabaga! 13.6-14.8 Inches long, and 1.5-2.5 pounds. This is the earliest baby can survive outside of Mama apparently if delivered prematurely.
