Pregnancy update (27 weeks)

Hi there!

It’s been a long while since I’ve written a pregnancy update, so I thought I’d show you what the bump is looking like these days and give you the scoop on how I’m feeling.

So, here’s the bump…

 

27 weeks pregnant

 

I took this picture at my OB/GYN’s office yesterday morning while I was there to take my glucose test.

Remember when I failed the first time around when I was pregnant with Michael?  Well, I did it again.  I failed with flying colors.  My doctor said that, for whatever reason, my body just doesn’t seem to break down the sugar very well. It’s a bummer that I have to take the 3-hour test next week now, but I’ll pass the time by watching YouTube videos on my phone.

The woman in the lab and the nurses were actually happy that I didn’t pass and one even said, “Now you can hang out with us again…and for even longer!”  At least I feel loved when I go there.

As far as the placenta previa goes, we won’t find out whether or not it has cleared up for another 4 weeks.  I’m really optimistic though because I’ve been feeling really good lately.  I had some mild bleeding for several weeks, but I haven’t experienced any of that for about a month now.

My morning sickness came back for about a week like it did when I was pregnant with Michael, but it seems to be gone (for now).

I still haven’t had any cravings other than pineapple which is no fun, but my doctor tells me that’s a good thing because I’ll stay healthy.  I still say it’s no fun though. 😉

Our little girl is measuring just perfectly, and she is a bouncing ball of energy.  I’m amazed at how much I can see my stomach moving sometimes- especially in the evening.  She must get excited when her daddy is home from work.

I’ll give you another update in 4 weeks after my ultrasound.  Fingers crossed that we’re placenta previa free!

Have a great day!
