Pregnancy 101: 27 Weeks

I'm officially 27 weeks.  Or at least I was as of Monday.  27 weeks.  I can't believe it!  Only 2 weeks left in my second trimester and then its off to the finish line.  I'm experiencing the fun pregnancy symptoms now.  Feeling Jackson's kick and punch my insides and today he had the hiccups!

I'm carrying him VERY LOW.  In fact that is the second thing women comment on when they see me.  The first is "HOW HUGE I AM".  So all is soccer playing he is doing is happening way, way down there.  My favorite part is when he is waking up in the morning.  He pretty much wakes me up every morning with his dance routine.

This past weekend I went with my Momma and we picked out the nursery stuff.  I'm so excited about it!  Although I did throw everyone for a loop because originally I had a very specific idea in mind and I completely went a different direction.  I'm not going to tell you what we are doing yet because I want to wait until we get it all together and show you.  But it has something to do with one of my favorite things!

Hubby has taken to giving my belly the rub down.  I think now that I'm really showing it is making it more real for him.  He hasn't been able to feel Jackson move yet because the little nudger stops moving as soon as I try to get Hubby to feel it!  I'm hoping soon he will be able to feel him move though. 

The worst parts right now is my stinkin' sciatic.  It doesn't bother me everyday but when it does it is pretty awful and will stay with me for a few days.  I haven't been having the headaches which is awesome.  I have been getting a little swelling but it's mostly when I'm on my feet too much and I need to give myself a break.

Today is exactly 13 weeks until Jackson's due date.  THIRTEEN WEEKS.  That is so close!  I can't believe that in such a short amount of time I'm going to have my son in my arms.  I can't wait!
