So Blogger has a new look, I'm behind with the times! I missed out last week, so here is this week!!
She's really sticking out there...this picture was taken yesterday morning before my doc appointment. My face looks 'fuller' to me and I have a double chin some days!
How far along: 27 Weeks and FINALLY in the 3rd Trimester!! Woo Hoo!!
We have a Head of Califlower this week...and now they are measuring head to toe and not head to rump, so she is about 16 inches!! I guess that is if she's normal and doesn't have her momma and daddy's height :) and 2.5 pounds!
The doctor says she's weighing in around 2.2 pounds according to the ultrasound, she was breech and in a folded pike position...getting ready for all those cheer jumps and stretches!!
What I've Learned from What to Expect: She is starting to Dream now!! Well, her brain wave activity shows different sleep cycles including REM, which is when dreaming occurs. She has started blinking, coughs, more sucking (which we have seen her do that in ultrasounds), and better breathing.
Also, they mention that babies born around this time have an excellant prognosis because the lungs have reached maturity now. But we still want her to stay put for now!
Stretch marks: No new ones.
Best moments this week: Mike getting to feel her move for real!!!!
Seeing and feeling her move in by belly from the outside!!!! It was crazy!
Having a Shower with Family and reminding me how blessed Mike and I are and how spoiled this sweet little girl is going to be.
Going to the Doc and seeing her on the Ultrasound and hearing that sweet little heart beat!
Some stranger walking in the hallway and said, "Oh, Kelly makes pregnacny look awesome" Completely made my day! She saw my badge as she was just walking in the hallway with her family member. So sweet and just what I needed to hear!
I'm sure there are more, but Preggo Brain is getting worse and worse!
Movement: Holy Moly Yes! She is all over the place, high, low, right, left, middle. We can also see her move...I'm seeing her make little jabs right now!
Food cravings: Ham Gravy...so I had me some last night! So so yummy!
Most Ridiculous thing I've Cried about or gotten Upset about: Mike's not here to put his two cents in, but I cried about a freaking swival on our new chair once we got it home. Long story, but we got the most awesome new recliner and had a swival base put on it. Not sure if we'll keep the base or not, but the chair is fabulous!
Umm, I've wanted to cry a whole lot more the past week...things I think are just really starting to come together and I am starting to freak out a tad.
Oh and this isn't rediculous, but I cried about failing my Glucose Test yesterday. Now I have to go back for the three hour test on Friday. I'm really hoping I failed because 1.) I had no clue I would be doing it at my appointment, 2.) So I had 2 oranges and chocolate milk right before my appointment, and 3.) I didn't have a great dinner the night before consisting of artichoke dip, pineapple, canalope, carrots, and left over yummilicious shower cake. So I will be racking up on the protein the next couple of days and hopefully everything will turn out just fine. Either way, it will be fine, but I will feel more fine if I pass the test.They are gonna be really mean to me because for this test, I have to fast (besides water) after midnight and then I go drink that awful drink in the morning and then they will test every hour for three hours afterwards and I will won't be able to eat anything!! They are starving pregnant women!! I really hope I don't pass out or puke, when I drank it on Tuesday, I got all jittery, felt like I was on speed or something.
