27 weeks

Okay, I don't know why it's soooo impossible to upload pictures tonight, but I'm too tired to try any longer. So let's just say that my belly is still growing like crazy and people are starting to think that I'm due soon. I'll post a visual for you as soon as the computer will cooperate with me.

Gil is 27 weeks old now which is hard to believe. I've gained 18 pounds which is easy to believe considering the way I've been eating. I still feel really good except that I'm not sleeping. At all. I fall asleep so easy just like the old days. But as soon as I wake up once due to joint pain or leg cramps, I might as well throw in the towel. And I'm not even urinating during the night, so I'd be able to sleep great. If that was possible. Which it obviously is not.

Remember how I got a vaginal exam at my appointment last week due to a tiny bit of discharge. Yeah, well it turns out I have a bacterial vaginosis infection along with a yeast infection. So, I'm on antibiotics three times a day, bringing my pill total to 8 per day. In a pregnancy I hoped to be drug-free. :) Of course, I also intended to eat healthy and exercise...

We had another childbirth class last night and we did an exercise where we stuck a hand in a bucket of ice to try to focus on our breathing and relaxation. What ended up happening is I fired Aaron as my coach because he apparently gets the giggles when it comes to hypnotherapy. The girl next to us actually hit him if that says anything. Glad he thinks it's funny that I have to push this gigantic baby through my hoo-hah.

So, I'm off to start counting sheep and pretending to be getting some much needed rest. Thank goodness I'll be all caught up when the baby comes...


  1. It's 2am and I'm up so I'm right there with you on the sleep thing!
    That sucks about the infections but good thing you didn't just blow it off as being normal discharge.
    Hope you're sleeping soundly tonight!!!

  2. Relish that, at least when you wake up, you don't NEED to get up and feed/comfort a baby [yet]. That always helped me relax and "enjoy" the middle of the night wakey-wakey time, or at least hate it less. Hope you get better sleep tonight!

  3. I have gone through bouts of sleep and no sleep this whole pregnancy... hopefully it'll get better for you before the end!

  4. Robbie and I had a little too much fun during our birthing classes. We had a very demonstrative teacher and often times we had to supress our giggles when we would look up and find her in precarious positions. Good times. I am glad you guys are enjoying the ride. CAN NOT WAIT to see you this weekend!! Oh - and if something comes up and you don't make it to the party - we will hunt you down. That's a promise. : )

  5. I would kick Aaron's ass if I could. Or force him to put various extremities in a bucket of ice water. Sheesh.

  6. Sorry to hear you have those infections but at least they caught them before it did something bad. I can't wait to see your bump. I bet its adorable. 27 weeks. Your getting so close :)
