My 27th week was pleasantly uneventful. The same persistent symptoms (sore legs, backache, mild nausea, exhaustion, insomnia, anxiety and intense heartburn), only kicked up a notch or two. But I’m considering myself lucky that I don’t have gestational diabetes or pre-eclampsia (among numerous other pregnancy complications that some women have to deal with). Baby spends his days letting his presence be known by kicking and tossing and turning. I even felt him hiccup this week. On the other hand, he is silent and still if anyone else tries to feel his movements from the outside. But that’s OK, as eager as I am for the rest of his family to meet him I’m kind of loving having him all to myself right now.
