Preggers Post - Week 27!
He is more than a foot long and weighs over 2 pounds now. He's also still dancing away, especially when he hears music or after I've eaten. He's a big fan of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, Salsa w/ Cream Cheese (try it... you'll thank me later), and Club Sandwiches.
Cannot believe we're at 27 weeks! I start my 28th week tomorrow (which means 3rd Trimester!), which is also my 28th birthday. Cool, right? Don't think I planned it that way. I mean, I'm Type A, but not that Type A.
I started my week with the Glucose Test. And I'm happy to report that all results are good to go! Thank goodness. I was not wanting to go through a follow-up test, which is 3 hours. The one on Monday was bad enough. Close your eyes and imagine drinking a lukewarm, watered down Sunkist. Oh, I'm sorry... did you gag? Because that was my initial reaction with my first sip.
Yep, it's empty. Just for proof, I took a picture.
Here's what's going on in the Smith household with Momma Smith, besides Glucose Tests.
I'm measuring 24 cm in the belly area. You're "suppose" to measure parallel to your week... like I should be around 27 cm right now. But, apparently I'm running smaller than normal. (Baby Smith likes my daily pep talks to "please be nice to mommy when growing" apparently.) I'm also carrying very low, which the doctor says should be fun when the baby drops, since there's not that much more room to go with him in that area.
- Still gagging with morning teeth-brushing.
- Still having 2-3 bathroom breaks during the night.
- Still leaking sporatically in the "ladies."
- Weight Gained: Right at 20 pounds.
- Braxton Hicks contractions have really picked up lately as well.
- Belly button has not "popped" out yet.
Add to this list: SNORING. Mr. Smith has reported that I have begun snoring... in his words.... like a trucker cutting logs at night.
Oh, the attractiveness just keeps on coming, people.
And just for hanging on with me while you read this... a belly shot.
Two thumbs up for heading into the 3rd Trimester!
