27 weeks

Dear baby boy,

We're now less than three months til we get to see your beautiful face! You're about 15 inches long and over two pounds. Your brain is in high gear, and you're opening and closing your eyes.You are very very active, now switching to rolling around more than sharp kicking. Sometimes we can feel your foot or hand and as we press down, you'll pull it away. Daddy tells people he holds your hand each night. I'm starting to realize how much I'm going to miss feeling you kick.

Mama is tired and requires more lower back rubs from daddy. The belly is getting huge and a little bit more difficult to manage. You must be sitting on your mama's stomach because bouts of nausea, dizziness and loss of appetite rule the day. I have gotten well acquainted once again with my coworker's floor. It's a little first trimester deja vu and frankly, I am not a fan.

We are working on our Bradley Method books and doing crazy things like pelvic rocking, squatting and butterfly exercises. We're doing everything we can to make sure we at least set ourselves up for what's best for you from day one.

We finished painting your dresser, and you've got a brand new white door (pictures soon). Tomorrow we get to hear your heartbeat again and find out what position you've landed in this time around. Here's hoping your head is finding its way toward the exit door. We'll also do our glucose test. Sorry in advance for the lightning shock of sugar you'll experience.

Love you, and welcome to the home stretch!
