27 Weeks and Losing My Cool

And I'm not talking about my temper...but my temperATURE! HOLY hot flashes. I also feel so sick after eating so I'm snack-mealing throughout the day. Which is what I should be doing anyway. I also did and passed the glucose test. As it turns out my glucose levels were much lower all around this pregnancy. But it also isn't Halloween. ;) Overall I feel good. some days are spent praying for more energy, but other than that and getting heartburn, feeling restless, and peeing like crazy, I'm doing good. Can you believe Maci is expected to arrive in 3 months? This is going fast. Hello, third trimester. I remember you well.:)

(Excuse the facial expression. I feel kind of silly taking these mirror shots of myself. Yeah, yeah, I know I was once guilty of being a pro at these "myspace" style photos but it's been a while since then, okay?)

This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like 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.
