Belly bump week #27

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart...
Jeremiah 1:5

Another bumping update for y'all!
Ootd: tunic from Heidi Klum maternity line: Loved via kohls. Tights: nonmaternity {woohoo stretchy!} VS pink. Wedges: kork-ease {they give me 5 inches of added height}

How far along are you?
27 weeks
Best Moment this week?
Dinner date with hubs TWICE
Prayer requests?
-Surviving another week of inpatient rotation without a day off
-that ill know what to do to help these really really sick kids
-healthy pregnancy
-my friend as she moves across the country in less than a month {ill miss her tons}
-that ill pass my glucose test
Baby's growth?
This week, baby D3 weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with legs extended.
With more brain tissue developing, baby's brain is very active now. - something a neurologist likes to hear.
He/she is a squirmer. Not the big kicks or nudges but i specially love the little movements.
And I haven't been sleeping well because of frequency awakenings :(
Weight gain (or loss)?
+26 lbs
Ranging 7000-10000 steps daily at work.
Taking 4-5 flights of stairs at the hospital tower. My longest flight was from the 3rd to the 8th floor at one time. I skipped the ground floor to 7th floor trip which my staff neurologist and co-resident did. I wasn't alone at the elevator that time. The student doctors were with me!
Cravings? Food Aversions?
Nothing really
I'm enjoying fruit especially grapes yumm
What Made Me Cry This Week?
Hmmm..... During morbidity and mortality case conference.
I haven't been sleeping next to Derrick. Twice this week i did sleep in our room. Either I slept in Isabel's room or the couch. I just could not find a comfy spot. I have frequent awakenings and i toss and turn. Not cool.
Maternity Clothes?
We don't know. Baby D3 is a surprise
What I miss....
Nigiri, raw fish
What I'm looking forward to....
Better nights
About the rest of the family...
Isabel's vocabulary is flourishing! So excited for my little girl. She has a new word every day or so.
Daniel is addicted playing wii. I'm not happy about it. He asks every day if he could play it.

Linking up: babies and beyond at proverbs and pacifiers and beauty in the mess.
