27 Weeks

Yesterday I had to take my glucose drink…that was interesting gulping it down at work right before I left for my appointment.  It just tasted like flat Sunkist and I didn’t notice it affect me on my half hour drive to the office.  I checked in at the lab, got my blood drawn and then they told me that they would call me if there’s a problem with my glucose.  So I guess no news is good news if I don’t hear anything back this week.  I don’t know if it was the drink or if I was super tired to begin with, but when I got home, I took a long nap which I haven’t done in awhile.

My appointment with my doctor went very fast, though I did get to hear Baby C’s heartbeat (still strong).  The bump also got measured and he said it’s right on target.  I go back in 3 weeks for a 30 week check-up and then I will start going every two weeks after that point.  Ahhh how did so much time fly by?!  I’m more excited than nervous at this point, but I have a feeling that will change as it gets closer and closer to delivery time.

I haven’t had any pain in the past week and have overall been feeling pretty good.  Hopefully it stays this way for a few more weeks :)  For the most part, I have really enjoyed being preggo – I’ve been lucky to have such an easy pregnancy. 

  • How far along?: 27 weeks
  • Baby is the size of a:  cauliflower
  • Total weight gain/loss:  +15-17
  • The Bump: Like last week, the belly button is oh so close to becoming an outtie, which just disturbs me.  And I didn’t notice how messy of an eater I was until this week.  The bump has become a crumb catcher, for sure.
  • Symptoms: No back pain this past week = a happy mommy!  Only new symptom is I’m having to pee more but I had a feeling that would happen soon.  It must be the way he’s sitting on my bladder now. 
  • Food Cravings:  Nothing in particular. 
  • Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: Nope. 
  • Sleep: Some nights it’s good, some nights it’s not so good.  It will probably be like that from here on out. 
  • What I miss:  Oh the usual…blueberry beer. 
  • Weddings Rings On or Off: On
  • Any Names Picked Out Yet:  Still have our 4 maybes, but I think it’s been narrowed down to 2. 
  • Movement: Such a mover, but I’m loving it.  Last night he was actually quiet before I went to bed and it made me a little sad he wasn’t up like he normally is.  And then of course I got worried he wasn’t moving until I felt him again this AM.
  • Maternity Clothes: Basically all maternity stuff, but I’m glad that my regular rollover waist skirts and yoga paints from Old Navy still fit. 
  • Labor Signs: Nothing.
  • Best Moment of the Week: Seeing some home videos of Hubby when we went to my in-laws over the weekend.  Haha our kid is going to have the curliest, darkest, thickest hair ever.   
  • What I’m excited about/looking forward to: Next week I have my appointment with an anesthesiologist at the hospital – basically I get to find out if I can have an epidural or not because of the scar tissue from my spine curvature surgery.  I’m glad I’m finding out now so I’ll have plenty of time to prepare myself in case I have to deliver all natural :)

    1. I had to take that glucose test before. It was terrible! I can't drink orange soda anymore. :(

    2. I am SUPER jealous that you got to drink it before the appointment! I didn't think it was too bad though. Glad everything seems good, and I would go with the no news is good news train of thought, too.
