27 Week Update

blog pics 011511 016

I cannot believe that I haven’t written a pregnancy update in 6 weeks!!  As you can see, baby Grace & I have both grown quite a bit since our last post :)

How far along? 27 Weeks

Heartbeat? Holding steady around 150 - 155

Total weight gain? +20 lbs (this is so embarrassing!!!)

Maternity clothes? Yes, yes, yes!  Even though I may be able to squeeze into some regular clothes, the maternity stuff is much more comfortable.

Sleep?  Much better!!  I only have to get up once at night now, and sometimes not at all :)

Best moment? There have been so many great moments over the past 6 weeks, but a few of the highlights include: opening Grace’s first Christmas presents from my family, finally deciding on a middle name “Grace Anna”, and being able to see her move on the outside.

Cravings?  Not really anymore.

Gender? It’s a GIRL!!!!!!  Grace Anna Vuong

Labor signs? Nope.

What I miss?  Still missing all my clothes & being able to shave my legs in the shower!  I also miss bath time with Collin, but am incredibly grateful to Son for taking this over.  It was just too uncomfortable to get down by the tub for that long since he enjoys staying in there for a while playing.

Looking forward to?  Still looking forward to decorating HER room, but I am trying to work on Collin’s “big boy” room first.  I bought this really cute baby bedding set from Target over Christmas.

I like it a lot, but I am not totally in LOVE with it…so for now I am holding on to it in case I run out of time to make what I really want.  Plus, I had fun making Collin’s bedding and I think that is why it is so special to me now, so I want that same thing for Grace.  However, I am not ready to return my “back-up plan” quite yet!

Here are some of the patterns that I am considering if I am able to make it myself.

Milestones?  Realizing that I am not able to do everything that I used to be able to & finally taking advantage of hubby’s offers to take over some things for me :)
