27 Week Pregnancy Highlights. . . Thanks Lydia

So this is something I stole from a blogging friend of mine who is currently 41 weeks! Good luck Lydia, and thanks for the highlights.

27 Week Pregnancy Highlights
How far along: 27 Weeks and getting bigger everyday. We now begin to go to the doctor every two weeks and then sometime after 34 or 36 weeks I think, we go every week. You know what that means, it is getting closer and closer! Aggghhh!
How big is baby: According to our last ultrasound at 24 weeks he was 1 pound 6 ounces. The app I have now says he should be about 2 pounds and anywhere from 14-16 inches long.
Weight gain/loss: I think I have gained about 25-30 pounds thus far. . . I was so surprised to learn I only gained 4 pounds since the last doctor visit I had. Considering all the junk and stuff I ate on the way to and from Wyoming, I figured I had gained at least 10!
Maternity clothes: Still in them, have been for a while now. . . Sadly my choices are in the beginnings of becoming slimmer and slimmer.
Stretch marks: Not yet thank goodness. I hope that isn't about to change, but I am afraid it probably is.
Sleep: It was amazing in the beginning, I had never slept better than I had when I was pregnant. However, it is now becoming harder as it becomes harder and harder for me to move. Rolling over is starting to be a chore and little aches and pains are making falling asleep difficult.
Best Moment of the Week: Finding out that when we get back from camp this week we have only one more week before we head to the doctor again. I don't ever get tired of hearing his heartbeat, which when I heard it yesterday, he also had the hiccups! Too cute!
Movement: Everywhere and a lot, especially late at night and right after I wake up!
Food Cravings: Nothing really, I am just liking food!
Gender: Still a boy :-)
Labor Signs: Nothing at all, which is what we want as of right now. Give me another 10 weeks and you will begin to read differently.
Belly button in or out: Still in, but severely stretched out!
Daddy: He has been wonderful lately, helping get me up off the couch, clean out the baby's room and closet, hanging curtains, you know just getting stuff done! I think we have both hit the nesting stage.

On a different note, Mark, me, and my brother (an honorary Cliftone for the week) are heading out with the rest of Mark's brothers to a Sky Ranch Camp in Oklahoma for the Cliftones to play at Macedonia Baptist's youth camp! This is our third year to do this, and it has been a blast each and every year. It is definitely a week I look forward to all summer and am so glad when it comes. I know this will probably be my last road trip for a while, which I am sure I will be ok with in a couple of weeks when I can't sit for too long. I am just ready to get everything done and squared away. It will just take me getting off this computer and couch to do it!
