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.
I can't believe that my third trimester has begun! We're on the home stretch. It's getting tricky to find a good sleeping position--may have to invest in one of those body pillows. I start going to the doctor every two weeks now...Also, I forget things lots and am clumsy and spill stuff--driving myself crazy!
A hope: eyelashes, eh? Well, we'd love for "son" to get Shawn's--they're so wonderfully long! What we're doing to prepare: took an infant/child safety & CPR class, & are really close to the 1st coat of paint on the office--which means we're even closer to starting the nursery! Also, our 6-week childbirth prep class starts Thursday!
