27 Weeks

27 Weeks

I’ll be 27 weeks pregnant on Monday. I thought I would go ahead and post a picture from today. ‘Scuse my bad hair day. It’s been rainy and I took a nap!

I had my glucose tolerance test this morning and it was no fun at all. They draw your blood for a baseline reading and then you drink a nice big bottle of super sweet orange drink (must finish it within 5 minutes.) I was drinking this and the technician told me not to get sick or they would make me come back and do it again another day.

Then after you drink the stuff, they draw your blood every hour for three hours to check how your body processes the sugar. In case you were counting, that’s a total of four blood draws. Well, they got their four blood draws from me, but they ended up sticking me a total of 8 times! That’s a miss every other time. It was awful. They poked both arms and both hands.

Noah is very active these days. He flips and kicks and hiccups a lot during the day … and night. Sometimes you can see my belly moving when he kicks. That’s very cool to see. He is about 14 inches long and 2 lbs.

My current craving is Reese’s Pieces. I’d rather have these than ice cream. I’d rather have these than just about any kind of food. Too bad that won’t fly. Peanut butter in a crunchy candy shell. What’s not to LOVE?

I’m looking forward to going to the doctor for another ultrasound in about 2 weeks. It’s always so fun to see how much baby Noah has grown and what he’s doing in there.I was talking to Mike the other day and told him that I was going to be 27 weeks on Monday. Emily was born at 37 weeks so we Noah could be here in as little as 10 weeks. Yikes! That makes me think I need to get busy.
