27 week bumpdate

How Far Along: 27 weeks and 5 days

Meds: All taken daily – prenatal vitamin, Omega 3 + DHA, Ranitidine (2x/day), Magnesium (250g at bedtime as per my chiro’s recommendation), Gaviscon for heartburn as required (which is OFTEN!).

Baby is the size of: a bunch of bananas or a papaya

Best Moments This Week: 

Worst Moment This Week: I felt like I had a major growth spurt – sore tummy, bloated, bad acid reflux. By Friday, my body was so sore all I wanted to do was have a bath. I attempted some yoga and stretching, but my acid reflux prevented me from doing too much. I also visited by Physiotherapist who told me I had a rib out on the right side (BUT, my pelvic floor is doing awesome now!). Fortunately, my Chiropractor fixed it this morning. She was shocked I didn’t have a sore neck as it was really out of line. I guess when the rest of your body is more uncomfortable, you don’t notice the little things. Overall, I’m feeling much better at the start of this week. I think not sitting at my desk all weekend may have helped. I’ve started sitting on my exercise ball for a few hours each day just to be more comfortable.

Total Weight Gain: up 1.2lbs this week for a total of 10.2 lbs.

Maternity Clothes: The comfier the better. I haven’t worn much besides loose or stretchy cotton in weeks. In fact, it’s been 3 weeks since I wore jean shorts. Not sure I could get them on right now.


  • Heartburn and acid reflux – still there, ugh!
  • Tired
  • Hungry for small snacks.

Sleep: Haven’t been sleeping great this week. Lots of crazy prego dreams and having a hard time getting comfortable. I get up to pee multiple times, then toss and turn all night.

Food Cravings: Black cherry ice cream, plain ruffled potato chips

Anything making you queasy or sick: No change here – just eating too much or my acid reflux. The good news is I only puked 2x this week! WHOHOO! Best week yet!

Movement: Lots of movement. My husband got to feel him having a dance party on Sunday morning. I love sharing those special moments with him. ❤ Our baby also moved quite a bit when I was driving this week and the song “Wagon Wheel” by Darius Rucker came on the radio. I laughed as my little man moved to the music, “Rock me Momma like a wagon wheel…“.

Stretch Marks: Still mainly below the belly button, but I’ve got a few white ones above.

Baby Bump: Growing and growing… still rocking a slight B which stands for Baby Boy Bump. 😛


Gender: BOY

Labour Signs: Too early. I can’t quite figure out if I know what Braxton Hicks feel like yet.

Belly Button In or Out?: Innie but I noticed lots of stretching and pulling around my belly button this week.

Wedding Rings on or off?: Off due to the heat.

Happy or Moody?: Same thing – lots of ups and downs. Some days, I’m super happy, content, and loving life. Other days, I’m an emotional mess – contemplating life, relationships, and all the why’s. Overall, I’m fairly stable, but I did just have two emotional days in a row. Major lesson: don’t fight the naps or let myself get overtired.

Purchases for baby: Crib bedding, a few onesies

Purchases for Momma: Nadda this week

Miss Anything?: My husband has made it quite clear he misses sex this week! I had some major heartburn and felt massively bloated (i.e. growth spurt), so he’s been out of luck. Sorry dude. 

Looking forward to: Reaching the 3rd trimester… which I’ve decided I’ll start counting at week 28. 🙂

  1. Isn’t it crazy how it depends on where you look on when the 3rd trimester starts? I decided I will go with the 28 week start time as well:) Don’t even get me started on what “month” one actually is. Yikes. Confusion:) You are looking fabulous!


  2. I love how you rock that dress! You’re looking fabulous Lindsey! Congrats on entering the 3rd trimester!!! I’m so excited for you, even if your body seems not to be lol. I hope that the aches and pains are temporary, and am so glad that you got your rib and neck adjusted! My belly just went through a growth spurt, and my belly button is doing weird things now too. It’s so strange! Yay on the baby deals!


    • Oh yeah and when you get access to the depth of your belly button I want to know what you find there! I had a freckle I never knew I had and a bit of fluff I reckon was circa 1976 😂


  3. Braxton hicks, to me, feel like a tightening of one area/side of your abdomen and stretches upward as it progresses. I used to think it was the babies moving into an awkward position for a few moments before it relaxed, sometime it makes me feel nauseas or anxious. You look drop dead gorgeous as always love and pregnancy suits you to a T. Glad things are getting a bit easier for you and that you still have ample energy to do things.


  4. Glad to hear the puking is abating; hope that continues. I’m also happy to hear you’re chugging along nicely and baby boy is growing. The growth spurts are so noticeable, it’s kind of amazing to me.
