26 week appointment

I just had my 26 week appointment today, complete with glucose test. The drink was pretty gross, but actually not as bad as I had made it out to be. I won't find out if I passed or failed for a while. So, pretty uneventful.

There was one interesting part. I asked the OB when the third trimester starts and she responded, "Oh, around now." :eek: I know she was stretching a little, but it sort of caught me off guard. I am in the double digits. We are all getting closer and closer!

I'm glad it went well :). It's so funny that there is absolutely NO consensus about when trimesters start or end lol.

Take 40 weeks and divide it by three. If they are true equal trimesters( as the math geek cries out that they must be!) it starts at 26 weeks 4 days!

Sounds like you had a great uneventful appt! I have to do my yucky glucose test in a couple of weeks. As for the third trimester, if it starts at 26 weeks and 4 days, then I'm in my third trimester as of today!! WooHoo! LOL!
