Happy Friday babes! Not even gonna try and hide it, but this rainy, cloudy weather is a perfect match for my mood. I took my Glucose test yesterday and failed it. Which means I have to take the 3 hours one to see if I have Gestational Diabetes or not. I think I got my hopes up because I passed the early screening a few months ago and I didn’t have it with P either. So I thought this one was smooth sailing from here on out.
But then today we went to see Baby P in 3D and it was such a mood uplifter. I was feeling really down and this just made me so happy. Not to mention she looks JUST like Miss P and we got a recording of her heartbeat in a plush elephant. So I’m a happy camper (for now haha)
So let’s get to this week’s bumpdate, shall we!?
How far along: 27 weeks + 4 days
Size of baby: Lettuce
Baby’s size and weight: 14.4 in and 1.93 pounds.
My total weight gain: 31 lbs
Baby is practicing inhaling and exhaling with rapidly developing lungs
Baby is showing brain activity now!
Baby is breathing amniotic fluid to practice breathing air!
Stretch marks: Nothing significant but I’ve been using an oil to prevent now.
Maternity clothes: Thank the sweet lord baby Jesus it’s finally warm out and I can wear dresses every damn day.
Movement: She’s getting stronger… kicking the crap out of anyone who touches her! (that’s my girl!)
Sleep: Crappy… still getting up to go to the bathroom at least once a night. Also can never get comfortable!
What I miss: Being able to breathe and normal bras.
Food cravings: Nothing imperticular but someone had pizza at the doctor’s office yesterday so I immediately went to get pizza after I left haha
Symptoms: Boobs feel huge, not sleeping, moody, exhausted, and just overall soreness.
The siblings are: Able to feel the baby move and they LOVE it. They like to put their faces on my belly and wait for her to kick them! haha
High of the week: We’re getting a 3D/4D ultrasound this morning! We saw a sneak peek when we were pregnant with Lady but this will be a go big or go home kind of thing. Last kid, need to do it lol
Low of the week: Finding out I failed my Glucose test. Seriously, it’s miserable on top of everything else that comes with being pregnant. But what can I do about it? Nothing. So I’ll just have to take it one day at a time.
N has his first baseball game tomorrow and then I have a blogging event with some local Cleveland ladies. We may be shooting my maternity pictures Sunday too, just depends on what this weather wants to do. But I just got my dresses from Sew Trendy in the mail yesterday and they are GORGEOUS! I can’t wait!
Hope y’all have a fabulous weekend… see you Monday! xo
