27 Weeks

Third trimester here we come!!

I can't believe it, we are starting into the third trimester. When I look at the calendar it feels like they will be here before we know it. Dr. Flowers won't let me go past 37 weeks so that puts us at early April at the latest. That makes us in the single week countdown! Can't believe it!

This week we found out I failed the Glucose Screening so have to take the long one. I have so many friends that said they failed the screening too, so hopefully I'll just be the same. My mom had gestational diabetes though, so it really wouldn't shock me if I did do. My nurse said that research is really on the fence about whether it's hereditary or not. If the tolerance test comes back positive then I'll have to control it with diet. Not exactly what you want to do when you're this pregnant, but it could be worse.

I started getting braxton hicks contractions this week. My whole stomach just gets really tight like I'm flexing. Pretty weird. Just my uterus "practicing." The weirdest thing about them is that I can feel exactly where the babies are when this happens. My stomach gets so tight that it just feels like two large masses in my tummy. Strange! Luckily they don't hurt, just kind of a strange feeling. The dr. asked me last week if I had started having them & was surprised when I said no, so I guess I'm right on time now.

Not sure why I said I had a shower this week on my last post, it's actually week 28. :) I also have a dr. apt., so will get to have more fun stats. on the growing babies!!
