We have arrived in the 3rd trimester!

As of today, I am 27 weeks and 0 days pregnant. It is the first day of the 3rd trimester and I am so excited and thrilled to have made it here.

We had a growth ultrasound yesterday and all went well. Baby A (our girl) weighed in at 2 lbs, 5 ounces. She is in the 51st percentile. Baby B (our boy) weighed in at 2 lbs, 11 ounces. He is in the 53rd percentile. The ultrasound tech and radiologist are very happy with these numbers. They are only concerned when babies are below the 10th percentile or above the 90th percentile.

The babies were both head down, which was amazing to see. They were totally kicking each other! We were able to see some hair on Baby A's head. The tech pointed it out to us. Otherwise, we would not have had a clue! After all these ultrasounds, we are good, but not that good!

Each time we have an ultrasound, we continue to get confirmation that our boy is still a boy and our girl is still a girl. We are not anticipating any surprises at delivery time!

So, I will continue to work for about 6 more weeks. My OB will put me off of work then, if everything continues to go well, and I don't need to go off of work before then. We are anticipating that the babies will be here in about 9 weeks or so. Holy cow! We are down to the single digits of weeks. WOW!

Penny and I are going away this weekend for our last little get-a-way before the babies arrive. We are spending the weekend in Carmel, CA at an Inn and staying in a cottage with a huge soaking tub that I am really looking forward to! We plan on relaxing, eating yummy food, and getting in some good reading time. I am also bringing my knitting with me, as I am desperately trying to complete the ONE blanket that I am working on, before the babies actually arrive. The babies will be small, so they can share one blanket, right? LOL! But, they will have to cherish it together, as mama is a slow and lazy knitter and two blankets will never be done before they arrive...unless I have to go on bedrest. What, me? Wanting to get out of work sooner than 6 weeks from now? Nah!

How cool! Enjoy your weekend, it sounds WONDERFUL. I love the pictures of of your furry family and the belly pictures are GREAT. You guys enjoy your time away. Relax and enjoy spending time with each other ALONE. That alone time will become more difficult to find in about 9 weeks (how exciting!!!) Thanks for sharing. Can't wait to see you.

I haven't been here to visit in a while and was pleased to see the "baby bump pictures"! You look great, happy and healthy. I especially love the doggie butt in the kitty bed. Sarah has a Bassett who comes to visit and does the same thing to our kitty's bed. What's with that? Good luck with the count down. Love from NH (we're forcasted to get 12-20" of snow tonight and tomorrow!) Gotta love spring in NH. Nancy
