Baby Barrett 27, 28, 29 & 30 Weeks

My oh my, time is flying!  I don't know how I got 4 weeks behind.  Time flies when you're having fun!

27 Weeks
28 Weeks
29 Weeks
 30 Weeks

Size of the baby: Baby Barrett is now the size of a cabbage, approx.. 18.2 inches long & approx 3.2lbs.

Total Weight Gain/loss: I have gained 17lbs (as of my last doctors appointment, I don't really want to get on the scale at home).  My belly is  growing everyday.  I swear when I wake up the morning it has grown overnight.  The Dr. wasn't super thrilled that I gained 7lbs in one month but I swear it's all in the belly =)
We start going to the Dr every 3 weeks now so I will be updating my weight gain a little more frequently.  Hopefully that's a good thing =)

Maternity Clothes:  I can still wear SOME of my longer shirts, but most of my pants are now maternity or stretchy yoga pants.   I am still totally in LOVE with leggings and sweaters. 

Gender: SURPRISE!! We are not going to find out till Baby Barrett arrives in May!  We have lots of guessing going on in the family, right now we are pretty split.

Movement: Definitely have been feeling movement.  Baby B is moving all day long now.  It is such an amazing feeling to feel baby flipping and kicking all day long.  Hubs loves to feel Baby B move.  First thing he does in the morning is roll over and poke at my stomach until Baby B kicks his hand.  I would be mad because usually I am still trying to sleep but he starts laughing so much I don't have the heart to be upset =)  

Sleep: Not getting much anymore.  Sleep has become a very precious commodity.  

What I miss: Not having smells literally have me running for the bathroom.  Not getting heartburn.  

Cravings: Ummm... Nothing really in particular lately.  

Symptoms: Actually nothing new this week.  Just constantly tired but I have a feeling that's probably something that's going to be sticking around for a while.

Best moment this week: Well since this post is about the whole last month I don't think I can pick one thing in particular.  But I think one of my favorite things to do lately is lay down and watch Baby B's little limbs move across my belly.  It is so magical!
Last weekend hubs and I traveled to Vegas for a work trip and while it was a whole new experience to be pregnant in Vegas we still had a great time (I mean what pregnant woman doesn't love eating at top restaurants all weekend =).  We also got to see the Bodies Exhibit at the Luxor and it was quite incredible!
