Baby Bump #3- 27 Week Update

I know I've said it before, but I have to say it again.  This pregnancy is FLYING right on by!  I can't believe that I'm only days away from my 3rd trimester, and have already started every 2 week appts with my Dr.!

I've had a fairly un-eventful pregnancy so far.  After the morning sickness subsided, had a bit of spotting around week 12, and have had minor back aches and bouts of exhaustion, but nothing very out of the ordinary.

I went in again yesterday, and had a bit of an interesting appointment.  I'm trying really hard to place all trust and faith in both my Dr. and God.  I'm trying really hard not to worry, and will wait as patiently as I possibly can for some answers in 2 more week.  My weight gain is much below the "average" at this point, so because of this my Dr. is having us do another ultra sound in 2 weeks.  Part of me is so excited- to see my baby again in 3-D at 29+ will be awesome, and then there's the tiny little part of me that has a bit of concern in the back of my mind.  The reason that I'm trying to stay as positive as I can is- This is exactly the same thing that happened with Adi.  I believe I gained a total of 12 pounds the entire pregnancy with her.  We did the extra ultra-sounds to check.  She was born 2 1/2 weeks early and was 6 lbs. 12oz.  She was perfect.  Also- my Dr. has been nothing but wonderful for all of my OBGYN work thus far.  We have absolutely  no reason to doubt him when he says that he is 'not concerned, this is just standard procedure for weight gain being below the norm.'  And- lastly- the fact that I am 27 weeks, and my belly is measuring 31 inches!  Ok- I'm not positive on what this means- Big baby?  Wrong due date?  Early baby?  Not sure.  But, like I said-  we are placing our trust and faith where we must, we are excited about another look at this beautiful little babe, and we are excited to get some answers is just a couple short weeks!

I wanted to throw an updated picture of this {large} bump up here, but realized I didn't have any current ones.  I will, however, have plenty after we celebrate my Brother's wedding this weekend!  I will be the pregnant bridesmaid that will {hopefully} last all night, and not have {too} sore feet!
