27 Weeks Baby!

I had an OB appointment last Thursday, which included the 1 hour glucose screening.  I'm guessing everything went great with that since I didn't receive a phone call the next day.  Yay!  It's a truly disgusting test where you drink a small bottle of, in my case orange, mysterious liquid, wait an hour, then have blood drawn.  Not a big deal, but the liquid tastes nasty and gave me a mean sugar rush headache and subsequent crash an couple hours later.  Blah!

The visit with the doc went very well.  I saw the same doctor who delivered Connor for the first time since his birth, which was a nice treat.  We discussed the Braxton Hicks contractions I've been having since about 24 weeks... not a big deal as long as they are not consistent or painful, and I need to drink more water.  Done.  My tummy is measuring exactly where it needs to be for the August 1st due date they gave me at our first ultrasound.  So I guess that eases any worries I had about being too 'small' for 6.5 months... not that I was really worried.

As I've mentioned before, this little guy seems to be doing circus acts with much gusto within my abdomen... to the point where it actually stops me in my tracks sometimes because I simply can't believe how fast and hard he is moving!  Well, it seems I'm not just imagining this.  The doctor could only barely get the heartbeat (which was in the mid 150's) because the baby was flipping and flopping around so much!  Even the doc was amused at all the movement!  My bladder on the other hand, much less amused!

So, everything is chugging along just as it should I suppose.  The next thing I need to decide is if I want to do a 3D/4D ultrasound or not.  It's $150, and Jamie is not totally sold on the idea of  it for whatever reason, so I don't know.  My only reason for wanting to do it is to verify the "boy parts" again, but I'm really pretty confident with the initial pics we got.

Anyway, here is the latest belly pic....
