Our Pumpkin is a head of Cauliflower!

This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle. (

Yay for the third trimester (well some say not until 28 weeks, but we are going with 27 since it's my blog)!!! Emery seems to be doing well and I had a very non-eventful (just like I like 'em) OB appointment yesterday. I was measuring 30 weeks but Chase is proof that really that means nothing. Maybe Emery is just aiming to be bigger than her big brother was since he was only 6.1 when he was born. ;o) I had my GD test done and will get a phone call if there's an issue and if not we'll just review it at my next appointment. I'm hoping for no phone call since no news is good news!!! My next appointment will be on August 18th, which happens to be the day I go back to work... ick. On the 1st is our big 4D ultrasound and I can't wait, now I wish I would have scheduled it for this weekend, but we really wanted to give Emery and extra week of growing so she'd be a little plumper for the pics. Besides, I know the 1st will be here in no time!

Hope everyone is having a fantastic week, we are busy recuperating from Disney!!!

***I am grateful for
1) 27 weeks!
2) 3rd trimester
3) 4D ultrasounds (can't wait)
4) hopefully good GD results
5) big brothers and little sisters!
