26 Week Update
This week your baby-to-be opens his eyes for the first time. He'll open and shut his eyes as he gets used to his new ability. Your little one is still on the small side. His body may look fully formed on the outside, but inside there's fine-tuning taking place, including his lungs and his brain. Your unborn baby still has some growing to do!
How Big Is Baby?
This week your baby's weight hovers around two pounds and her length reaches about nine inches (crown to rump).
How We Feel:
It's all starting to hit us now, with less than 100 days to go until our little guy arrives I'm starting to get that nervous excited feeling; every thought in my brain seems to be related to baby.
We got a lot accomplished this week including picking up the stroller/car seat and the playpen from Babies R Us. While we were there they made us register by enticing us with coupons and free stuff, we aren't having a baby shower or anything so I was hesitant about registering but this girl loves her some coupons so I couldn't resist; I got 10% off and used my $5 off coupon on my purchases though so it was worth it. We also had to pick out a different bedding set because the one we wanted was being discontinued and had micro-suede on it which I didn't think would be very baby-drool friendly so we picked out a Jungle theme instead. Dustin likes it better anyway and I think it's super freakin cute so we're both happy. We also went to sears to look at baby furniture and finally settled on something we were both happy with esthetically (for me) and mechanically sound to satisfy Dustin; it's all ordered and set to come in around the middle of March.
Stacy had an Obstetrician appointment this morning and everything is great with her and baby so that's wonderful news. Today babies heart beat was 152 bpm and he was nice and active. She is now going to appointments every two weeks which is crazy because when she first started going, it seemed like ages until she would be going to bi-weekly appointments, and now it's here. We have another ultrasound appointment coming up in a couple of weeks so that is something to look forward to as well. Only a couple weeks to go before we are in the third trimester!
