27 Weeks Pregnant

Just an update on my pregnancy... Today I had my doctor apt. I am now 27 1/2 weeks pregnant. I have gained 4 pounds in the last 5 weeks, so that is fine. This week I am measuring normal. So no longer measuring 2 weeks big anymore, last time he probably just had a growth spirt. "The Boy" (we have no names yet) or "Daddy's baby" (That is what Berkie calls him, and Brooklynn is mommy's baby) is doing well. His heart rate is good. He moves around like crazy. One of my favorite things to do is watch my belly move. It doesn't matter what I am doing, watching tv, reading, cleaning or whatever, if he starts moving I stop and just sit and watch. Sometimes it looks like he stuck and pushing trying to get out. I love it, I could watch him move around all day. He has started kicking my ribs now, it doesn't hurt just shocks me, but I still love feeling and watching him move.

One day he was going crazy and my belly was going up and down and all over the place. I told Brooklynn to watch, that the baby was moving. She looked and when he kicked one spot really hard you could see my belly go out really far and back in. Brooklynn screamed and then looked closely again. When he did it again she started laughing. It was really cute.

So I started buying some clothes, it was really hard at first. I couldn't find any cute boy clothes. But then I went to the Carters store. CUTE CUTE CUTE! It is so fun shopping for babies.Some things I liked so much I bought doubles to give as gifts.

Well I have been showing for quite awhile but I am really sticking out now. I know some people have wanted to see pictures of me and so here you go. I know I look so different pregnant, they say your hair changes when you are pregnant, mine went really dark.

I think I look pretty good, what do you think?

Ryan and I did a maternity photo shoot, I really like how it turned out. You know Ryan looks kinda different too.

Some day I will put a picture of me on here. I promise. It's been awhile since we took one of my growing belly but I think it's about time for another one.

You crack me up with those pictures. I am so not one to post fat pictures of me. So is anyone doing a shower for you?

I love feeling my baby move too, although he is getting so strong now that sometimes it gets pretty uncomfortable. I'm excited that we are both having babies pretty close together. They can play at family events.

That is hilarious!! If we all were taken to photo shoots and had professionals making us beautiful we would all look like that 9 months pregnant! YOU LOOK GREAT THOUGH!!
