We are now at 30 weeks! Only 10 more to go! Everything is going great! My baby shower is this Saturday and I am so excited and cannot wait to see everybody!!! Here's what's going on inside my belly this week:
Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and he weighs almost 3 pounds. A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds him, but that volume will decrease as he gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus. His eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen; even after he's born, he'll keep his eyes closed for a good part of the day. When he does open them, he'll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision — which means he can only make out objects a few inches from his face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)

We have hit 29 weeks! This week, we celebrated my 26th birthday at my parents' house in Selma! We had so much fun and lots of delicious food, of course! My cousin, Andy, and his girlfriend, Tina, came to visit us this week, too! It was so nice seeing them!They drove from Orlando, Florida to Savannah, Georgia, and came through Alabama on their way back home. They stayed in Birmingham for two nights, and had dinner with Matt, Murray, Josh and me both nights. It was a nice visit! At our Planning for Parenthood class this week, Josh (and the other dads) had to dress up in an empathy belly. I posted a couple of pics of that! What a good sport!!! :)

We have hit 28 weeks! So far, so good! We started our Planning for Parenthood class this week at the hospital and it was pretty informative. We will be going once a week for the next 3 weeks. We also had our Drs appointment on Wednesday. They re-did the ultrasound, but Dax was still not cooperating. He ended up deciding to turn his entire body and face toward my spine. He just really wants us to wait to see his face in person. Oh well! Only 11 more weeks!!! Our next appointment is in 2 weeks. Other than the 4D, everything else looked good! I am measuring at 29 cm, which is right on target, and his heartbeat was great! I also got my diaper bag, thanks to my mom (Mimi) and Josh's mom (Nana). It's Petunia Pickle Bottom, and I absolutely LOVE it and CANNOT wait to wear it. It even folds out in front to make a take-anywhere changing station! Here are some belly pics at 28 weeks and a couple of pics of my diaper bag. We are going to Selma this weekend to celebrate my 26th birthday! Will post more pics soon!
