27 Weeks

I am officially into my 3rd trimester now!  Yay! Thank you Jesus!

Next week I’ll be going in for my glucose test to see if I have gestational diabetes.  A little nervous about this test.  I have to drink a super sweet drink called Glucola and then wait around an hour to get blood drawn.  If my sugar levels are too high, I have to have another test done at the hospital which will last for about 4 hours.  I don’t mind how long it takes.  I just want to make sure if I have it or not so I can have my health more closely monitored if needed.

I’m starting to have swelling in my hands and feet.  My feet were water logged when I was pregnant with Faith.  I hope it doesn’t get that bad again.  I’m still lying down as much as I can because the longer I am sitting or standing, the more my core muscles ache and stretch.  It’s a miserable feeling.

What baby looks like at 27 weeks…

pregnancy-week-27-sleep_square

This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (about the size of a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She’s sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby’s brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don’t bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.
