I don’t no if the baby has flipped face down or just make be drop a little bit, but it hurt through out the day anytime in trying to move around  feel it. I’m walking like I’m 9 months but I’m actually looking 6 months. I can hardly sleep at nights the baby moves and kicks a lot at night and even more during the day some times i feel like he is going crazy or dancing or something i want him to relax more.

  • Charlotte is very cute. You have taken me through this journey. Your voice has always been comforting. 27 weeks today, i was worried my tummy wasn’t that huge but seeing those bumps made me feel just fine. Baby kicks alot and it’s so entertaining.

  • 27 weeks today and heart burn started, always hungry and thirsty as well. She’s very active and my legs are cramping so bad! My stomach is still very small though for 27 weeks which is funny since my baby is very tall for her week (Her height is seen as 28 weeks). Both the father and I were born really tall.

  • Yay! So excited to be entering the third trimester. Not really sure if it’s 27 or 28 that makes 3rd trimester but I’m going to just go with it. My crazy dreams, shortness of breath, and heart burn are still in full force. Thank goodness for Zantac. I’m feeling lots of baby movements and I’m able to watch her from the outside. I’m leaving for the beach in the morning and I’ll be gone my entire 27th week. Looking forward to resting and relaxing, oh and eating from good food��

  • I see a lot of people talking about leg cramps but for me it’s been foot cramps specifically in my right foot ive also been feeling so much weight from my belly now and it’s definitely hurting my back I’ve noticed being much more restricted when it comes to bending over or doing a lot if I walk a lot one day I typically end up having Braxton Hicks contractions by the end of the day one night I actually got woke up from them but everything has been pretty well with my pregnancy just mostly typical symptoms I can also make out a lot of her body parts when she moves now and it makes me so happy �� I can’t wait to meet my baby girl

  • Compared to them I look like I’m carrying a baby elephant in my belly, then again I’m only 4”11 so she has nowhere to go but straight out ����
