Here is a picture of me pregnant at 27 weeks. Summer is not my favorite time to be pregnant especially when hot and humid. Thankfully our air-conditioner cools the house enough when need be. (After putting on an addition we never increased the size of the unit so it doesn't cool the entire house well but does take out the humidity everywhere). I love to have windows open during the summer (the only time we can) so I am thankful for the gentle breezes blowing through most of the time.
I am feeling good despite the typical stabbing pain I have at times with scar tissue from my c-sections stretching. With each pregnancy I have had a racing heart mornings for maybe 4 weeks or so. I would wake up and shortly after my heart raced to the point that I needed to sit down or feel like I would fall over. It wore me out quite a bit and even at rest my heart rate was high. Thankfully I seem to have passed that stage and my energy level has increased slightly.
I have 2 1/2 months until this little one makes it's appearance but do not feel anywhere near prepared. I know in the end everything that needs to will get done. I will have my 4th c-section and we set the date next month.
In the meantime the children are enjoying feeling the baby kick and move around. I love to watch their faces light up when they get kicked. "Mommy, I feel it!" I continue to work on narrowing down my choices for names. For some reason it seems so difficult this time. Thanks to everyone who gave suggestions!
The countdown continues and this week baby is growing eyelashes and baby fat.
