I had my glucose test yesterday (to check for gestational diabetes). Still waiting to hear about the results, but considering I gave up my sherbet and ice cream habit several weeks ago, I’m
thinking hoping I may be okay. On the other hand, the amount of sugar I’m eating shouldn’t affect the results – and hopefully my body is processing it properly. (The upside to failing the first test would be taking a day off of work to endure a 3-hour test.)
How far along am I: 27 Weeks
Size of baby: McLittle weighs about two pounds. He’s roughly 14 inches long. BabyCenter compares his size to a head of cauliflower.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I’m up 22 pounds.
Clothes: I’m quickly outgrowing some of my t-shirts. Luckily, my mom and I are going shopping again next week (and it’s outlet shopping.) Must find more clothes asap.
Gender: Yep, still a boy!
Movement: He moves a lot now (at least I can feel him move a lot now.) And this week we started seeing the movements. Crazy!
Sleep: I need more of it. It’s been great, but I’m starting to feel the exhaustion I felt at the beginning of the pregnancy.
What I miss: My energy. I’m zapped.
Cravings: I’ve really wanted tater tots from Sonic, but I’m holding off.
Symptoms: I’m so tired. I keep reading that my back should be hurting more, but it isn’t. I’m wondering if my chiropractor visits are helping out with that.
Best moment this week: Seeing the baby move. It was a little weird, but cool at the same time! Even Kenny got to see him move, instead of just feeling him.
