30 weeks!

I am now 30 weeks pregnant. I need to take some pics this weekend, but until then, I thought I'd at least post an update.

Things are going great! I am feeling really big and really heavy, but otherwise really healthy and great. At my last appointment I found out I passed the diabetes test, I have perfect blood pressure, my metabolism is working just as it should- the doctor said I am the perfect pregnancy!!

Here is the 30 week baby update from

Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and he weighs almost 3 pounds (like a head of cabbage). A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds her, but that volume will decrease as he gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus. His eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen; even after he's born, he'll keep his eyes closed for a good part of the day. When he does open them, he'll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision — which means he can only make out objects a few inches from his face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)

Looks like our little boy is growing and growing! :)

Update: Here is one 30 week pics that I attempted to take of myself...

And here is a pic Jason took of me before we headed to see Peter Pan, the ballet. Jason took me as a surprise. I love my hubby! :)

3rd Trimester!

I am officially 27 weeks pregnant, and have made it to the 3rd trimester. I cannot believe how fast it is going by!

Here are some new pics:

(Warning- I seriously do not look this chunky in real life! For some reason every pic that Jason takes I look like a Weeble- you know, weebles wabble but they don't fall down...)

I even thought I'd throw in a bare belly shot for fun :)
