It's official!

We're in the 3rd trimester now, 28 weeks today! Woohoo!

What's going on with baby this week:
By this week, 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.

According to BabyCenter, most women gain about 11lbs during the 3rd trimester...good Lord, I hope not! I've already gained 20 total and I'm sure being on bedrest only helps pack on even more. Blah!

Anywho, nothing else to report for now. I'm just chilaxin' in the bed :-) I go back to the Dr. next Monday the 22nd, so I'll update then! TTYL.

P.S. I would like to say thank you to Jesse for sending me a wonderful "bedrest care package" the other day. It was such a nice surprise to receive! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

If it helps you feel any better, I've gained about 20lbs since you've been pregnant too. At least you have an excuse. You're full of baby. I'm full of cupcakes.
