27 weeks

The babies are really moving a lot now. So much that Neal actually got creeped out by it! They move a lot more at night now and especially when I eat. I think last night our little boy was playing the drums on my side. He had a good steady beat going. I believe he has his mothers natural musical ability. I am not sure how long he lasted as I fell asleep. Pretty soon I think I could lay a book on my belly and their kicks would knock it off!

This week........
During this week, the brain continues its rapid growth, and the lungs continue to grow. Eyelids begin to open, and the retinas begin to form. The baby will grow over 1/2 inch this week and will be about 1 1/3 feet long (from crown of head to the toes or 9.6 inches from crown to rump)!

Hard to believe I have 2 living things weighing about 2 pounds each and over a foot long inside my belly! Next ultrasound is Monday, I cannot wait! Other than being sick with a cold the last weeks have been the best part of my pregnancy. I hope this continues for a while longer. I have learned I need to move/ roll much slower now. Birthing class on Sunday, that is surely going to freak the both of us out.
