28 Weeks

I can't believe it but today I am 28 weeks! I have officially entered the 3rd trimester. Which means I'm on the home stretch. It is really starting to feel real now. I only have 12 weeks left and I'm 70% of the way there.

The baby is now 2.5 pounds and is about 16 inches long from head to toe! She can now open and close her eyes and can actually see light through the womb. How weird it must look! I am still feeling her kick quite often throughout the day. It's definitely my favorite part of being pregnant.

Because I've entered into the 3rd trimester, I now start going to the doctor every two weeks. So I'll have lots of doctor updates. Our last appointment was last Friday. Everything went well. My weight gain report was much better! :-) But I do have a little bit of high blood pressure. So he's going to keep a close watch on that. We go back in tomorrow morning (Thursday), so we're praying that it will be back down to normal.

This is our doctor!! Dr. Clark! He's really great. I wanted to get a few pictures of him in action and introduce you all to the man that will be bringing our child into this world. :-) In the first picture we are listening to the heart beat. And in the second one he is measuring my belly to make sure it's the size it should be.

So baby is doing well and we are doing well. I don't have any weird symptoms happening yet. Things are starting to get a little uncomfortable and it is starting to get harder and harder to get up from a sitting position or even tie my shoes! :-) But if that's all I have to complain about, I'll take it. It's actually pretty funny to watch, at least Heath thinks so.

I hope to update again soon and not take so long. Especially since there are only a few more weeks and my belly will probably start growing a lot more now!

Love you guys!!
Merry Christmas!!!
Heath and Janelle
