27 Weeks! And a contest!

June Bug is going to start opening his/her eyes this week! Up until now, they’ve been fused shut, but he/she is ready to see the world ~ or at least the inside of my uterus! June Bug weighs just over 2 lbs (about 1 kg) and is about 15 inches long. I’m feeling June Bug move CONSTANTLY now ~ although he/she is still shy when other people want to feel! I’ve gotten to feel some really good pokes from little feet and I think I felt some baby bum the other day =)

Pinks and Blues Girls Blog has a contest running – the Blogger Baby Bump Watch 2008!  All you have to do is post a pic of your belly on your blog and you are entered to win a beautiful pink and brown diaper bag ~ people, that’s my two favourite colours in one bag!!! So here’s my belly pics from this week – week 27!

27 Weeks 1

27 Weeks 2

I can’t believe my third trimester starts in a week (this week, according to one of my books!) … the count-down is *so* on! I’ve gained 21 lbs and have yet to get any stretch marks … although I do have the varicose/spider veins to deal with. The lady at Dell Pharmacy gave me some great news when she fitted me for my prescription compression stockings (that’s right, everyone. I said it.) ~  that I don’t need the full-length pantyhose style and that I can stick with thigh-high!!! I just about kissed her =) Brad’s been interacting a lot more with June Bug now that he can actually feel (and see!!) him/her moving around a lot more. It’s the cutest thing ever – having my hubby talk to my belly!
