bump #82: 27 weeks

27 weeks!
The third trimester is right around the corner and I am still loving every minute of being pregnant!

Even this morning's glucose test...

It was not as bad as everyone said. I never drink soda, so the glucose sugar orange drink tasted like a Fanta and was quite refreshing. The hardest part was to sit still for an hour afterwards until they could do the blood test. They say no news is good news, so I'm hoping not to hear back from them about the results of the blood work and to go on my merry way indulging in all the tasty treats I want.

Andrew and I took some self timer Christmas photos in the woods near our neighborhood. I need to get better about remembering to take pictures each week. The time is just flying by!

Oliver is measuring right on track, according to our doctor's appointment this morning. My nurse said my belly is "all baby" bless her heart. I know better. I've gained at least 20 pounds at this point and I know for a fact that about 5 of those pounds are from all the delicious Texas BBQ we ate over the weekend. My belly may be mostly baby weight, but my thighs are all brisket :) The big highlight this week (and the culmination of the last 4 years) was when Andrew graduated from UTSA with his PhD on Friday! Yay!

This week we're excited to head home to Pismo Beach and spend Christmas and New Year's with family. When we get back to San Diego in January, we're signing up for a bunch of pregnancy, newborn care, and nursing classes at our hospital. Fun times ahead!

Merry Christmas!
