Wow, today marks 27 weeks and time is flying by!! They say, time flies but wow, it sure does, that is NO understatement! I am doing great and really great and enjoying every moment! That is a repetitive statement but I really am. Here is an update, at 27 weeks:

Total Weight Gain/Loss: We’ll find out at my next doctor’s appointment. Not weighing myself on a regular basis, just using my 3 week doctors appointments to monitor that. As of my last visit it was 7-9 pounds and I am sure I have gained a few more these past few weeks, we will see…
Maternity Clothes: Wearing my workout clothes, no problem. That is what I wear most anyways. It works great for Maternity clothing. I hadn’t tried on Jeans in several weeks and went for it and they still fit! They were super stretchy and low but yes, I was able to comfortably wear them 🙂

Gender: Boy.
Movement: Starting to feel him but more like gentle butterflies.
Sleep: Still not well! I am use to it by now! Slept through until 5 a.m. last night but a typical night, I am up  between 2-3:30 like clockwork. Getting use to it by now!
What I miss: Hot Yoga and HIT Training. (It will be there after I have my little boy so not too worried)
Cravings: None really. Had a fair share of cereal on Saturday so I suppose you could say “Cereal”.
Symptoms: Tired but other than that doing great!
Best moment this week: I’m at less than 100 days – we’re sneaking into the third trimester and I am still able to workout and move freely, for the most part!
