27 Weeks with Baby Seth

I know I'm a couple days late, but I wanted to share a picture of my 27 week belly with you. It is really crazy to see how huge I am compared to what I was this point in my pregnancy with Wyatt. I've shared the following picture of my pregnancy with Wyatt at 27 weeks before, but now that I've reached this point in my pregnancy with Seth I thought it would be fun to post a comparison.



I'm still having trouble with my weight as you can tell from my picture. I'm getting really frustrated. I've been really frustrated if we're being truthful here! I've already gained just over 35 pounds and I still have at least 10 more weeks to go! Ugh! I hope my doctor is able to figure out what is going on with my weight gain. I did this with Wyatt starting at about 27-28 weeks. I thought it was just related to his unique pregnancy, but now I'm starting to wonder. I worry I'll start retaining too much fluid and it will cause my water to break early like it did with Wyatt. I guess only God knows what is going on at this point and I just need to trust him.

I'll admit there are some days when I feel like I could eat everything in sight... but most days I hardly have an appetite. I have to force myself to eat. Even with hardly eating, I gained 6 pounds in a week and a half period! And that's what my weight has been doing to me...

Hopefully I'll know more after my next appointment on the 15th. They will be doing my gestational diabetes test and going over the results of my last ultrasound and blood work. Maybe we'll have a clue then.

Wow you are so cute. Seth is so low!! I am carrying my first (a girl) and I can now tell that she is much higher than Seth is. I thought at first she was kind of low but looking at your pics I can tell she is pretty high!! I am only 22 weeks 2 days. So you have a few weeks on me! Hope your weight stabilizes soon!

You are so cute! I am sorry that you can't figure out your weight gain. I am packing it on too and out growing my clothes. My belly is now itchy and it scares me. I hope that your body just likes being pregnant and that nothing is wrong. Thinking of you!!

I gained 35 pounds with Ethan and 35 pounds with Noah (even though I only made it to 31 weeks with Noah). Hopefully this is just normal weight gain for you and nothing to be concerned about. I will definitely be praying for you!

Praying for you and baby Seth! Your belly bump is adorable! I am starting to retain fluid rapidly if I do too much during the day. Sitting around is starting to drive me crazy loL! I really can't complain... a few more weeks to go :) I can't wait to 'meet' your little guy! Hope you get some answers soon.

Praying for you always and hoping you get some answers. I failed my test last year and I lived on turkey breast and salad and watching my weight. I only ended up gaining 2 lbs. Wow !!
You look great and really not that heavy either.

You and Seth look so cute!There is a difference in the photos. I'm sure you will lose all your weight after Seth is born and you are taking care of 3 little ones.
