27 weeks pregnant





27 weeks done, 13 to go. In a week I'll be in my 3rd and final trimester.
Somehow, time is passing by so quickly, but not quickly enough.

You're so stinkin' cute it kind of makes me sick.

Soon enough after that baby is born you'll have baby amnesia and forget how long it took and how hard it was and be excited to do it all over again! Trust me, been there done that, ready to again :)

Anyways, lookin' good mama, lookin' good.

Tick tock, here we go!

Kathleen said...

you look stunning aura. how are you feeling? I remember around 27 weeks I started to sleep a lot and at random moments my lower abdomen would tighten up. But I loved watched my little one roll around, and at times, I even felt like her entire body was in my chest!

Alivia said...

You look gorgeous! It's unreal how the only thing has seems to have grown is your bump!

didi said...

Congrats, Aura joon! You look great! I'm a few days behind you...I'll be 27 weeks in 2 days :)

BTW, have you decided if you'll name your baby a Persian name? We are conflicted...I'd love to find a name that is Persian but also American...

Take care!
Parissa

Rachel said...

Your hair looks great! Isn't that a wonderful byproduct of being pregnant?!

jodi said...

You're hair is so thick and lustrous - all those yummy pregnancy hormones! And the bump, well, it's precious. x

Mary said...

Wow, you look fabulous Aura! I especially like the fifth photo. How slim and elegant you look and neat your bump is. Simply gorgeous! Best of luck with the next trimester.

Naya said...

You look incredible. Pregnancy really suits you. My baby is 4 weeks old today. I miss him being my little buddy inside me. I miss the kicks, moving, and hiccups only I could feel. Enjoy your pregnancy, it really does fly by.

KK said...

If you weren't so sweet & genuine, I'd have to hate you! I was such a dog when I was pregnant. You are absolutely stunning! Can't wait to meet your little girl, too!

Gorgeous, beautiful, glowing! I'm so excited for you and can't believe you are almost in your 3rd trimester!

Amanda said...

Beautiful! Your still so tiny except for that perfect little baby bump. Enjoy the rest of the journey, it goes by too fast and then you will miss that little nudge throughout the day and the wonderful feeling of having that little person with your no matter what, you are never alone while pregnant and I loved that.

MelissaOK said...

You look gorgeous! I love the little belts you've been adding to your outfits.

Jessica said...

You are an absolute vision Aura! I have left a couple comments over the years... even back when you had a livejournal account (that shows how long I have been a "follower" of your writing).

I am so excited for you and Michael. A baby, a new business... I can't believe you are already 27 weeks along. All of your readers are so excited to see your beautiful girl enter the world.

Thanks for letting us have a peek into your life. Not to sounds like a total sap but 2010 was a very hard year for me (death of a friend, lost a baby among other things) and your blog just gives me his feeling of zen and happiness. Please keep doing what you're doing!

Love & Light to you and your growing family.

nikaela marie said...

you get a million comments! xx ooo ps. stunning.

tippytoe foxtrot said...

Lovely! I can't wait to see your sweet baby and see you begin this new journey.

Audrey Joy said...

I'm so excited for you! And you look beautiful! I just had my first baby boy in December and although I am exhausted, I can't describe the love and joy I feel when I look at my son's sweet little face! Pregnancy went by so quickly and I now know why I kept getting the same advice from mothers -- get alot of sleep now while you still can ;)

Have you been reading any books / blogs to help you prepare? Will you be going green and use cloth diapers and make your own baby food? Just curious...

I enjoy your blog very much and hope you will continue to blog although I'm sure priorities will shift once your little baby girl is here ;)

Peace.

Aura said...

Thank you so much, every one! You are all so, so sweet, stroking a pregnant woman's ego :)


Kathleen- I actually feel wonderful. I've had what I consider to be a somewhat difficult pregnancy (hives, bleeding, sickness, fainting) but these last few weeks have been great. I keep hearing that 3rd trimester is when that all changes, though!


Didi- I've been thinking about that. We might videotape it, because I don't know who would be able to work my camera. My Mom and Michael will be the only ones in the room, and I need Michael with me.


Parissa- When we found out we were having a girl, we decided to use a name I have loved (non-Persian) for over a year. We talked to my Mom about it and she suggested just using a Persian name for the middle name, since we had so much difficulty with our names growing up. The alphabet and pronunciations are just so different, that even the most beautiful names sound butchered. We have a short list of Persian names that we like, but nothing definite, yet :)


Audrey- I started watching/reading birth stories over a year ago when we started talking about having kids :) In my true fashion, I start preparing wayyyyy ahead of time for everything.
We will not be using cloth diapers, because I will be going back to work and don't feel comfortable asking other people to deal with them for us. I will keep a few pairs for the weekends and times when we are with her for extended periods of time.
We will indeed make our own baby food when she's ready to eat it and done nursing. I'm actually really excited about coming up with a bunch of different kinds of baby food!

Anna Walker said...

First time to your blog. First word that comes to mind is "lovely". You have to be one of the most elegant pregnant women I've ever seen. Looking forward to reading more!
