27 weeks.

Here's what's going on this week...

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 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.

i've started feeling a lot more pain in the past week. i've been feeling some pelvic pain (especially when i'm working) which is really slowing me down. i probably try and do too much at work, but i can't help it!

i had an OB appointment this week as well. everything looked good, as usual, and i found out that i passed my glucose screen. hooray! they also told me that i'll need to go in the next week or so for my rhogam injection. i hate shots, so i'm not looking forward to it. i've heard that it isn't all that bad though.

the date for my work shower has been set, and i'm getting super excited! my good friends megan and julia are throwing it for me, and it tickles me pink to see how excited they are about it. it makes me feel good that people care that much about me (and little mia).

i believe that's all for now. until next time!
