As of today, I am 26 weeks along and according to babycenter.com, our little Eli is now the size of an English Hothouse Cucumber...how dumb is that?! Haha. I've always thought the comparisons are quite odd.
I've heard so many different things about when the 3rd trimester actually begins so I asked my doctor when it really is. He said if you want to get technical, it begins at 26 weeks and 4 days but as of my appointment this morning, they consider me in my third trimester. Yahoo! On top of that, I'm down to double digit days left so that's happy news as well! It's slowly starting to seem a bit more real. My weight gain, the growth of my belly and Eli's heart rate were all right where they should be so we left very pleased with not much else to report. I have to go back in two weeks to get a RhoGAM shot because of my negative blood so I'm not too excited about that but hopefully it's not the end of the world like I'm probably making it. I know it's important so that's all that matters!
This Saturday we have a Halloween party with some good friends so we're really looking forward to that. Last year at this party Annie and Tyler announced their pregnancy! Maybe someone else will have a fun surprise announcement this time around...?!
