First an aside ~ years ago I was taught the 1st trimester is till 13wks, 2nd include weeks 13-27, and third weeks 27-40 ~ so that is how I count, but you are of course welcome to follow any calendar you would like :-)
Am grateful to still being feeling well, though after several days of intense heat am beginning to grasp what being pregnant through the summer is going to be like. I foresee lots of lemonade, AC and as much water time I can manage. Am usually up once a night but otherwise still sleeping okay though will soon be grabbing the extra pillow to support the growing belly.
At my midwife appointment I enjoyed the lovely experience of my 1 hour glucose test which I profoundly hope I 'pass'; I didn't last time with E. and because I did not have gestational diabetes by the end of the 3 hours test my blood sugar was so low I was feeling really rotten (tip: bring something to eat as soon as the test is over!!). Otherwise everything looked and sounded good, yay!
No definite names yet but short lists for both ~ no strong leaning either, BTW!
And thats the view from 26 weeks
