Third Trimester, 28 weeks

We are at 28 weeks and super excited!!! Each week is less time the babies will be in the NICU, and closer to 35 weeks. I am breaking it down in 2 weeks increments, seems least that is how I am rationalizing it :)

According to, here is what is going on with the babies this week:
"By this week, your baby weighs two and a quarter pounds (like a Chinese cabbage) and measures 14.8 inches from the top of her head to her heels. She can blink her eyes, which now sport lashes. With her eyesight developing, she may be able to see the light that filters in through your womb. She's also developing billions of neurons in her brain and adding more body fat in preparation for life in the outside world."

Oh they are adding fat alright, and creating an amazing amount if discomfort for momma :) If my skin would just stretch some, we would be ok....but it seems like it is not stretching fast enough. The babies are growing and I can tell with every arm, leg and head that rolls around. Keep on kicking babies, maybe that will help make more room. I'll deal with the stretching aftermath another year. HA!

Friday night was date night, and I rallied the troops to do something special for Jack. Mom helped me with picking out sushi, chocolate and drinks, and then Lezlee came over closer to dinner time and sent Jack to look at her car. She lite candles and had all the food on the coffee table with movies in tow. THANK you Mom and Lezlee!! We had a yummy dinner and a movie kind of night...pretty much all we can do at this point, but it was fun. We were very tempted at about 10 pm to go to WalMart and buy a Wii or Guitar Hero....something we can play. I'm all about a good card game, Jack not so much.

Saturday I had a facial at noon and Jack and David headed out to check out some fishing holes...really I should say fishin' holes. Later this afternoon my cousin Jill came over to visit. We had a great time and go to catch up in a lot of areas. Thank you for hanging out Jill, and for warming up my dinner.
Jack and David got back and stained the toy box Jack has been working on AND put together the changing table and dresser. Very productive evening! Thank you DAVID!Unfortunately, we had to opt for another changing table, not the one we registered for...that Christina my sister in law got us. :( It was too big for the room and the space allowed for a table. we used that credit at WalMart and had to go with a smaller one. Here are Jack and David putting it together, and then the final project. See the Jack size toy box in the background! It is going to be great!

I like it! It looks similar to the one you registered for. I think the added drawer space will be nice!
