How Far Along: 27 weeks
Size of baby: Head of cauliflower, around 16 inches long and weighs about 2.5 pounds
Total Weight Gain: 10 pounds so far, as of a week ago, but feels like sooo much more. Definately starting to feel it.
Gender: It's a GIRL!!!
Movement: She's been pretty calm this week. Seems to move more when I am not doing a lot. And of course she always moves to the sound of her daddy's voice.
Sleep: I sleep ok. I wake up a few times and I still have to get up to go to the bathroom at least once, sometimes three times a night. But I am exhausted!!! Work is wearing me out. I so look forward to the weekends when I can semi-sleep in.
What I miss: Running & enjoying coffee in the morning, dang coffee aversion. I can't even stand the smell of it right now.
Cravings: Chocolate and Ice Cream, too bad I have to watch what I eat and check my blood sugar four times a day because I didn't really pass the glucose screen.
Symptoms: I have some pain from stretching probably. And I still get mild pressure feelings when I exercise and the occassional heart burn, but I can't really complain about anything right now. Praise God for that!
Maternity Clothes: I need some....desperately!!!
Best Moment this week: Entering the third trimester, because it means we are getting closer to meeting this precious little baby. Today is also Andrew and I's 4th wedding anniversary! Pretty amazing to see what is about to be in store for us.
So I totally did not pass my glucose screen. I failed it...miserably. I convinced my doctor to let me monitor my sugars for a week before having to do the 3 hour glucose test. So far, so good....I think.
