27 week appt - WOW that is a BIG baby!

Yesterday was my 27 week appt. Everything went great and we have a healthy little boy from what we know so far. He is head down sitting right on my bladder with his legs up in my ribs. I guess that explains why a restroom trip is in order practically every time I stand up. It is actually quite comical at times. Mr. Easton (yep his name is officially Easton ---middle name is still in the works) is 2.5 lbs right now and 15 inches long. They definitely made a comment on how big AND long he is. I am wondering if that means he is going to be tall…after all Chris is 6’ and his dad is 6’2 which is pretty tall to me. My doctor also made a comment on how she will want to monitor me closely at the end since he is so big. Makes me wonder if they will want to take him early...any moms out there with experience in the big baby department...let me know your thoughts. My next appt. is in 2 weeks and I have the fun GD test then too. I start going every 2 weeks now until 36 weeks. Time is really going by fast.

As for me, I am still feeling pretty good. The heart burn is definitely stepping it up, but it isn’t nearly as bad as the morning sickness. I just keep my big thing of tums next to my bed at night and usually once I fall asleep, it doesn’t bother me anymore.

Fortunately I am down to my last big project on my plate right now at work which is due next Friday. So I can actually breath a little easier right now knowing my work load is a little more manageable. Hopefully I can get back to blogging and not be so out of the loop.

We have some fun weekends planned coming up so hopefully I will get some pictures and have some more blogging material. I didn’t blog about last weekend, it wouldn’t have been very interesting….well unless you think that Chris helping my dad build a closet and picking out new bedding for our master bedroom is fun to read about. I on the other hand decided to spare you the details. Well I hope all is well with my friends out there. Miss you all that I haven’t seen in a while.

I will try to post a belly picture soon as I am definitely getting a big gut.

they said Ryan was gonna be huge and had me all worried, but they were wrong! and yuck on the GD test - i had to do it three times I still shudder when I think of that nasty stuff you have to drink. Don't leave it in your hot car and have to chug it at 100 degrees as you rush late to your doctors appt. Cold is way smarter!
