2/3 Done! (Almost)

It has only been a week since my last update so not much is new but I figured I'd make a quick update since I had my 26 week appointment this morning.  I had to drink that nasty glucose drink so they could check for diabetes so that part wasn't tons of fun.  It honestly wasn't that gross but I think my brain made it seem nastier than it really was.  Other than getting my blood drawn for that as well as getting a flu shot it was just a regular appointment (my last 4 week one at that!).  

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...?!

~The Bump~

At the request of a friend and fellow CSK, I am caving in and posting my first picture since finding out I was pregnant.  There's really no reason I've refrained from taking pictures other than I didn't want to post one until I felt like there was something actually showing.  People that see me are finally able to tell that I'm pregnant so here it is, my first "baby bump" picture:

~25 Weeks~
(Yes, I purposely left my face out of this picture because it was taken way too early this morning so I probably look exhausted.) 

According to a few different books/websites, our little man is about 14 inches long and somewhere between 1.5 and 2 pounds.  SO tiny but getting bigger!  I love being able to feel him move around all the time and even though I still have so long to go I can't wait to see what he looks like!
