Third Trimester?

I am 27 weeks today, so according to some sources I am third trimester, and according to others not until next week. Whatever, I am going to consider it the third tri!

I had a scan at the peri's today, so here is the update:

Baby A is 2 lbs 8 oz
Baby B is 2 lbs 4 oz

Checked cord flow, heart and amniotic fluid, all looks great!

Since I have been having some contractions, they did an internal exam on my cervix, but it is still nice and long, measuring over 4 cm, which is a HUGE relief!

Both babies are active, but Baby B is especially so.

I am working from home every day now. It is too much to commute into the city. I have been having contractions and getting tired/breathless, so I said that was it. My wonderful boss and colleagues have been amazing and it is very easy to work from home.

This week we "took off" Thursday and Friday so my husband can paint the nursery. We have 2 colors of pink from the Disney Behr paint collection. Next week the furniture will be delivered and we can organize the closets, wash the clothes, etc.

We finally got some things out of the way:

- Pre-registered for the hospital L&D
- Registered for an infant CPR class @ Red Cross
- Signed up for cord blood registry
- Chose a pediatric practice

We still have a few items on the list, but we are getting close. My shower is in less than 3 weeks, and I am so excited!

Here are some belly shots from today, 27 weeks:





When the nursery is ready, I will post some photos. My next peri appt is at 31 weeks, so probably no baby updates till then (let's hope). My GTT is on Wednesday though, I REALLY hope I pass!
