Welcome to the THIRD and FINAL Tirmester!

It feels amazing just to say that :)  I am 2/3 of the way there.  Yes, the remaining third might leave me more uncomfortable than I have ever been before, it's the LAST third in our trio!  It's INSANE how time has flown.  I feel like it was just yesterday I was stuck in the miserable first trimester begging for time to move faster.  Now here we are!

All 27 weeks of us :)

It's also INSANE to think that in 13 weeks we will have a baby.  I will be a mom and Mike will be a dad.  What?  Wait a second...when did this all happen?  lol!  JK!  We are as excited as ever, BUT it is pretty crazy.  My dad keeps saying, "I can't believe my baby is having a baby."  And that makes it hit home even more.  Well, Papa B, looks like we are growing up these days.  Be a parents for time:  3...2...1...GO!  (For those of you who don't know, that's how we start almost every single workout.)  

So baby this week is officially measured from crown to feet...roughly 15 inches and weighing in over two whole pounds.  2.2-2.3 on average.  Good thing all this weight I'm gaining isn't just me!  I guess Baby B's lungs are the organ going through the most development these days.  As they learn to "breathe," the nostrils are opening this week to help start the whole process.  Of course, there isn't air in the womb, so he/she is 'breathing' amniotic fluid.  It's crazy to think about all the babies that are born at this stage (or earlier or a tad later).  The medical field has come SO far...I couldn't be more thankful being a mom-to-be.  Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't wish a premature birth on anyone, but it is more safe these days for both mom and baby.  Doctors can do some pretty miraculous things.  It also takes faith and a strong little peanut.  Let's hope Baby B waits to make an appearance till Daddy can be here...or me there.  Keep praying someone rents our home!!!!  Ah!  Speaking of, I cannot wait to know if it's a boy or a girl.  It's SO SO SO SO SO exciting to think that in 13 weeks (give or take a few) I will be holding my little bundle of joy in my arms.  And I will know what gender my child is!
