Hump Day Bump Report

LP and I at my doctor's appointment today
(Looks like I should have taken his stocking cap off sooner than I did...)
I'm currently 27 weeks pregnant and I had my last "monthly" check-up today.  It is crazy to think that now I start seeing the doctor every other week!  Realizing that today makes me think about how fast this baby really be here.  Here are ten questions to let you know how my pregnancy is going:

  • How far along?  27 weeks down - 13 weeks to go
  • Baby size:  Head of Cauliflower
  • Baby milestone:  Baby is showing brain activity
  • Weight gained in pregnancy:  I'm up 9 lbs so far, which I feel is pretty good
  • Labor signs:  None yet but my doctor said I could start getting Braxton Hicks, which I had for probably a couple months prior to LP's birth
  • How did you find out you were pregnant?  I took a home pregnancy test the day after a bachelorette party...  The test showed that I was pregnant so I called the doctor's office first thing on Monday morning and got in that week to double check
  • What was your first reaction?  I immediately tried figuring out when the due date would be.  I guess it is the farmer in me but I found out I was pregnant during fall harvest and I checked to see if the baby would come after spring planting (which hopefully the baby will come after planting and before field work)
  • Have you bought anything for the baby yet?  No I haven't but I have a couple things I'd like to get that I just need to sit down and actually order online - I have my eye on a fold and go bassinet that I think will be a good asset with a busy toddler to also take care of
  • Food cravings:  Milk, milk and milk - I think I'm drinking two gallons myself a week!
  • Emotions:  I do have to admit I got emotional today about something I really didn't need too - I think my pregnancy hormones got the best of me...


  1. Ah, the memories! I got a kick out of your checking to see if the due date is during harvest, but we do, we do check to see if or when the impact will be affecting a very busy time for the family. At some points it seems like it takes forever and before you know it, theres only a few weeks left.
    My family is so excited for you guys!
    God bless!

  2. That's HILARIOUS that you are trying to see when your due date is, compared to planting/harvest times. Totally something I'll probably do!
