Third Trimester....Bring it on baby...

Well, we hit 28 weeks!!! Yipee!!! We have hit the third trimester mark!!

We had our 28 week check-up today! The baby looks great. Her HR was 152 today and she finally decided to turn herself around and get out of the breech position! Although the midwife told me that at any time she wants, she can flip back around. They won’t worry about her specific position until about 34-35 weeks. I guess that is a relief??

In the news this week:

-Peanut’s eyes are partially open now and can blink.
-Peanut should have eyelashes as well. Let’s hope she gets her daddy’s BEAUTIFUL eyelashes!! If you haven’t ever looked at my husband’s eyelashes – you should b/c they are long and beautiful!!!
-Her eyes should have color now, too. It may not be the color she ultimately ends up with, especially if they're light gray or blue. The eyes typically don't settle on a final hue until nine months after baby is born. Isn’t that interesting?
-She is about 15 inches long and should weight 2-3 lbs. Unless you are our child and probably weigh 3-4 lbs by now!  HEHE
-Peanut’s billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world.

Nothing else is new and exciting.... besides the fact one of our faithful readers had their baby... Welcome to the world Colin McHugh AKA Turnip!!! We are so glad that you finally decided to join your wonderful parents in this big and exciting world!! Colin -- make sure to take your mom up on the ice cream offer that she bribed you with during those last few weeks!

Yay 3rd trimester! Congrats on making it to the home stretch!

And Colin has already insisted on the ice cream. Last night, Patrick went to get me an ice cream sandwich and he screamed his head off - the first time he's been so fussy. I think he knew...

You could call putting the crib together "marriage building" :)
