Pregnancy Diary: 27 weeks

Today I am 27 weeks and 5 days pregnant.

Baby is apparently approximately 36cm long and according to Baby Centre  some experts think that at this gestation babies begin to dream! I’ve never read that before and find it simply amazing, what one earth would they dream about?! Incredible.

I’m nearing the end of my second trimester and am starting to feel the slowing down that comes with the third and final trimester. I’m getting out of breath easier and feeling more tired even after getting a decent amount of sleep at night. I’m not particularly bothered by either of these symptoms but am experiencing a third which is I’m definitely not enjoying. For the last few days I’ve had really painful ankles and tops of my feet. They’re not swollen but just feels like I’ve walked 10 miles around Dartmoor. I know it could be so much worse but I’m used to being on my feet most of the day and am struggling with the concept of having to sit down a bit more!

Other than that, we’re all fine and dandy, Isaac and Sophia are talking about the baby on an almost daily basis and definitely looking forward to the arrival of their new sibling. February seems like an age away but with both their birthday’s and Christmas before hand, I reckon it’ll be here before we know it. I don’t think I’ve much else to say this week, just wanted to mark the end of the second trimester on here to keep up with my documenting of this pregnancy.
