27 weeks

I'm a little behind on this week, since I'm already 27w3d, but that's OK. And I can't even blame being busy with work since we had a very nice long Thanksgiving weekend (Thursday and Friday were holidays here).

I did my gestational diabetes screening last week, and it wasn't fun, as predicted. Drinking the orange flavored sugar syrup containing 50g of sugar in 5 minutes wasn't too bad, but it made me feel pretty awful afterward. I definitely had to lie down to get my blood drawn. No results yet, but I have an appointment with the midwife on Friday, so I guess she'll tell me then.

Baby has been very active this week, with all sorts of gymnastics happening. Still not enough to wake me at night though. I'm not sure if he/she sleeps when I sleep, or if I just sleep heavily enough not to notice (which could very well be the case since I've slept through raccoons trying to get into our bedroom and John getting up to figure out what was going on). Otherwise everything is going great, no complaints at all!

I had a lovely Thanksgiving, a friend came to visit for the weekend as her husband is away too. We went to a geology family's place for dinner, and had lots of traditional food, fun and laughs. It still surprises me that Thanksgiving seems to be bigger than Christmas here. We also went for a walk in the monarch butterfly preserve (still too early for the migration though), and ate lunch on the beach while watching dolphins. Lots of fun!

Belly button: still in, but not for long. The top part is very very shallow now, and the rest is getting shallower!
Gender prediction: Still no real feeling either way.
Stretch marks: Still none!

Here are some very bad self portraits for this week (with Sahara in the background in her favorite spot).
