28 Weeks!

We have reached the third trimester with this little one! It seems like we still have so much time left before his arrival, but I know it will go quickly. I'm still feeling good and haven't gained too much weight. I'm actually within the guidelines at this point so that's pretty good - 5 pounds less than I did with Drake up to this point. He's moving around quite a bit which is awesome. I love that feeling!!

I have an appointment tomorrow and then I'll be going every two weeks. This is crazy time for me at work and then we're taking a little vacation at the end of the month so March will go by especially fast. I'm hoping to get the room painted (picked out paint today!) and for the furniture to get here before we leave. I already got three pictures for the walls ready to go and the other two got here today. Now, we just need to decide on his name so I can get that ordered, too. Oh yeah...and, we need to buy a full-size mattress for Drake so we can move his crib mattress to the baby's room.

From BabyCenter: By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of his head to his heels. He can blink his eyes, which now sport lashes. With his eyesight developing, he may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. He's also developing billions of neurons in his brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.
