So I had my birth center appointment today and everything looks good. :) I got my blood test and Rhogam shot and didn't even pass out. Baby kept kicking the doppler when the midwife was trying to check her heartbeat lol. She's measuring 2 weeks big apparently, so maybe she will come a little early! (That'd be nice since Kaylee came at 42 weeks and 3 days...) After that, we went to Kay's pediatrician appointment. She basically turned into Super Monster Kid the minute we stepped in the office. She cried, screamed, thrashed, and insulted the doctor, but it was nothing I couldn't handle and we got the checkup done. Then we went thrifting and found a bassinet (with dragonflies on it!), a baby bath, a shopping cart cover, and some adorable clothes. All cheap and in great shape, definitely a good thrift day! So tomorrow I'll be 29 weeks, I can't believe another week has passed already. She will be here before we know it!! :D

BabyCenter update: Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. To meet his increasing nutritional demands, you'll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron. And because his bones are soaking up lots of calcium, be sure to drink your milk (or find another good source of calcium, such as cheese, yogurt, or enriched orange juice). This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby's hardening skeleton each day.
