Update: Hanging in There

Yep, it's the middle of the third trimester. We're nearing the end and I'm definitely starting to feel more and more radiant. Owen and I survived two weeks of bed rest and since my body is making no progress in the labor department, doc eased up on the rules a little. I'm still banned from work and going too far from home, but thank the Lord I can do a load of laundry and pick up the toys on the living room floor. Hallelujah!

Since I've been able to move beyond the bed and the recliner this weekend, I've actually felt a lot better. The wonderful weather this weekend helped, too! I've been so overjoyed with my freedom that I almost forgot to document my 35-week milestone. Owen is now the size of a delicious five-pound cantaloupe, as you can see in the following comparison photo:

Five pounds is the average stated in my weekly email, but based on my doctor's predictions, Owen is probably even bigger than that. As the weeks go by, I'm starting to get less nervous about delivering too early and more anxious for the kid to get here! I know my due date is still five weeks away, but all this excitement and he's not even budging. :) I very well may end up with a March baby, but I could also go into labor any minute! The suspense is part of the fun, but I'm ready to meet this guy face-to-face. We will see if that date is getting any closer at my appointment Thursday. Until then, I guess I'll just keep on glowing. Happy Monday!
