27 Weeks Pregnant!

WOW! 27 Weeks Pregnant! I can hardly even believe it! Seems like just yesterday I was freaking out because I was pregnant again! 27 weeks is the start of the 3rd trimester! Less than 3 months to go! I can't hardly wait!

Tessa has been VERY active lately, which is great. She still is kicking inwards so she often beats me up :-) I THINK she is starting to begin transitioning out of breach position because I am now starting to feel more movement along my left side. I hope she gets out of breach position because I do NOT want a c-section if I can help it. I did vaginal birth once and it wasn't THAT bad...I can definately do it again. I would love to avoid being cut open if I can!

My next doctors appointment is Thursday (the 17th). Looking forward to hearing Tessa's heartbeat again :) Pretty soon I start my twice weekly appointments and I will get to see her all the time!

As is 27 weeks according to Baby Center:

This week, baby weighs almost 2 pounds 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, 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.
