Okay, okay, all kidding aside, time to update you on Baby Lump's developmental touch points for this week. At this point, he/she should be about 15 inches long, weigh almost 3 pounds and be starting to form some eyelashes and eyebrows. One Web site I refer to describes the baby's length as similar to an amusement park cinnamon-sugar-coated churro. Mmm ...
I had my glucose screening on Monday, which checks for gestational diabetes. Everything I've read about it prepared me to drink a nasty "glucose cocktail" before my blood was taken, but it honestly wasn't bad at all. It basically tasted like a very sweet but flat cup of Pepsi. Anyway, I heard from the doctor today that I passed, although my iron is low (no news here, it always has been), which means I'll be taking an iron supplement from now on. No biggie.
Well, it seems like we're in the home stretch now folks. The frequency of my doctor visitations has now been increased to once every two weeks until week 36, at which point I'll check in once a week until delivery.
Does anyone else think time has gone by at a ridiculously fast pace?
